I've been using Pro Tools for a while, but an older version that will no longer work once I upgrade to Mavericks.  I mainly do voice and effects editing rather than music.  Nothing complex, just audio tracks for films.  I know Pro Tools and I kind of like it, but feel that it might make more sense, and be cheaper, to move to the new Logic Pro X.  I'm not a sound expert, so I need something easy to use.  I need to cut up clips, sometimes retime them to make the read faster, but no EQ or fancy stuff as I am not mixing, just editing.

 

So, my question is, do Logic users out there feel that a move from Pro Tools to the new Logic, makes sense for the kind of work I do, or is Logic more suited for music production rather than voice and editing?

 

Thanks

    I will probably be ostracized for this but I think Pro Tools is the better application for what you're doing.

    In my opinion, audio editing has always been less then elegant in Logic whereas it's one of ProTools strong suits.. Logic is geared towards music production, with over 30GB of loops and and instruments as a secondary download.

     

    Guess it depends on what you're used to.

     

    Logic is only a couple hundred bucks, it may be worth it for you you to investigate.

    Even though I have been reprimanded by operators of this forum because of applauding to the first comments Pancenter gave, I'll try to explain. It's all about workflow. If time is money, then you will loose money, it's as simple as that. Try the most easy job you did with PT (in no time) in Logic and you know what I mean. If you want to be creative, choose Logic anytime. If you want to be quick and efficient, then PT will win the race I'm afraid. But if you have the time to get used to the thing, then by all means try it and find out for your self. Eventually you'll accomplish any task in Logic like you do in PT, but your workflow will dramatically differ!

     

    My two cents

    They have fixed the RT bounce indeed in PT11. If you have worked in Logic already and didn't notice anything changing in your attitude straight away, like getting irritated during jobs, routines which differ and stuff like that, then don't worry you'll be fine.

    Giving you examples will be useless because your workflow differs from mine, I'm sure. But if you follow a certain routine in PT, this will have to be turned around 180 o. And if you don't mind then there is no problem at all!

     

    Cheers

    I can't see how that will be of any use to you, but I'll try to make an example tomorrow.

    If I come up with something tomorrow, you can bet we'll get a new PT versus LPX thread and I don't fancy that at all.

    Evidently you have Logic or some version of it... so what's to ask? Either it's working for you or it's not.
