Logic Studio software from Apple marries the Logic Pro 8, MainStage, and Soundtrack Pro 2 toolkits with three ample plug-in sets: Studio Instruments, Studio Effects, and Studio Sound Library. You get an amazing amount of recording studio software in one convenient package. Whether you're recording hot rock licks, making a movie soundtrack mix, or need a tool for live performance tricks Apple Logic Studio's is your all-in-one, go-to source.
Logic Pro 8
A next generation, single-window design and simplified interface is just the beginning. Logic Pro 8 offers a region-based take management system for smoother multi-track recording, editing, and processing. It's also equipped with new precision audio editing and automation tools, optimized mixer views, a plethora of compatibility choices, realtime notation, soundtrack synchronicity assistance, surround production, more mobility options than before. If that sounds like a lot, it's just the tip of the iceberg of what this powerful toolkit can do for you in terms of collecting your rough ideas and reshaping them into polished gems.
As we continue to move through the digital age, it's more and more common to see a laptop on-stage as much as it was to see a quartet thrashing about in the 80's. You can still bang your head, keyboard, guitar, or drum pads, but MainStage makes managing plug-ins and switching performance functions headache free with an intuitive hardware controller learning system and full-screen tuning to ensure fluid live shows. Utilize professionally designed instrument templates, or customize them to your preferences. The high-resolution graphics on the highly modifiable interface are easy-to-read in long distance and low-light situations, so before you take the stage, see how MainStage can make you a better live performer.
Soundtrack Pro 2
Have you ever been moved by a piece of music playing along to some video, or in a special part of a movie and said to yourself, "I want to do that!" Soundtrack Pro 2 will help you on your journey to becoming the next John Williams with a streamlined multitrack interface; advanced audio editing and dialogue tools; and time-saving stereo and surround mixing controls. You'll also get seamless compatibility with popular audio and video applications like Final Cut Pro. Soundtrack Pro 2's extensive library of royalty-free sound effects and music beds can provide you with the right aural nuance to complete your soundtrack. You can also easily add third party sound libraries, or use compressors, delays, and reverbs to reshape existing sounds into your original concepts.
This collection includes 40 instrument plug-ins to play around with. Ultrabeat has more than 50 new drum kits, 400 new patterns, and more than 1000 new sounds. Synths features six different synths, each with their own characteristics, from the classic analog style to an 8-voice polyphonic type for more ensemble-like parts. The EXS24 Sampler and Sculpture are two plug-ins that allows you to tinker around, creating unique sounds. Vintage Instruments offers authentic simulations of a Hammond B3, Hohner Clavinet D6 and several Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer pianos.
It's tricky to rock around with the 80 effect plug-ins included in Apple's Studio Effects. Space Designer is a convolution reverb that gives you a library of more than 900 impulse responses so you can make it sound like you've recorded in as diverse environments as a rustic kitchen or Allianz Stadium. Guitar Amp Pro offers an array of legendary amp models, cabinets, microphone controls, and effects for building guitar tone, as well as nine different amplifier models, frequency, and gain controls for electric bass sounds. You can also use it to create your own amp and speaker combos or use it to manipulate synth lines. The Delay Designer is multi-tap delay plug-in with True Surround processing to give each tap it's own pan position in the surround field. Other plug-ins you'll find useful and fun are the synthesized reverbs; modulation options; EQs; Surround Compressor; vintage, warped, and voice processing; as well as mastering tools to complement it all.
Studio Sound Library
The Studio Sound Library is a numbers game. You get five Jam Pack collections, including World Music, Symphony Orchestra, Rhythm Section, Remix Tools (geared toward the hip-hop, techno, trance and R&B types), and Jam Pack 1 (a general variety of percussion, string, and synth instruments). To add to that, you'll have 18,000 royalty-free Apple Loops, 1,300 EXS instruments, and more than 1,000 multichannel sound effects and music beds. As if that weren't enough, there's 2,400 professionally designed strip settings and 600 surround channel strip settings to work within. To sum it all up, that's an enormous sound playground to have fun in.

Comments about Apple Logic Studio:
I think it's great that I can quantize all of the midi and make it in time with the rest of the regions. There are tons of effects and it works great with a Mac Pro G5. My Powerbook G4 on the other hand doesn't process all the tracks easily. I have a Seagate Go Flex Desk Drive that has 2 terra bytes of memory. I split it into two sections; one for time machine backup and another for saving my work on Logic Pro 9. I highly recommend saving everything to a separate drive and rerouting the tracks to play from it if your mac is slow. I like to write down my lyrics on the writing pad on the right of the screen; it makes everything run more smoothly and with minimal effort. Totally worth it in it's price range.
