    I'm using PT LE right now and I have a very stable system. The only reason I have to forget PT and go for DP or Logic is horsepower to mix... DP is dual processor ready and logic is altivec ready... ohhh, I forgot about the track count on PT LE .
    But I do love the stability and editing on PT. So far, I couldn't find out how to do some serious editing on DP 3 or logic... I mean... serious, FAST editing.
    I use those for AUDIO only, almost no MIDI at all.
    Can you guys comment/suggest my post?
  2. Hi Jeronimo.
    I also work with PT, but have this iBook running DP. I tried Logic too, it's nice... but as a PT user... If you have no other choice, go for DP, it's kind of similar in many ways; Logic is not. You'll get used to DP faster than LAP.

    DP is cool.

    Thanks for your reply!!! By the way, I'm dreaming about an iBook running DP 3 for a while... how do you like it?

    Logic is a very stable, powerful DAW with strong MIDI attributes. But, I would have to agree with the comments above...I think you could transfer to DP faster than Logic. I have heard that logic has quite the lurning curve, but if you know it you can really do some powerful things. I think DP is very powerful with less of a learning curve. That being said it probably depends on what you are used to and how you work. For recording/mixing mostly audio I would definately go with DP. Many people actually prefer it over ProTools...of course another popular system for electronica based bands is to run Logic as a front for a ProTools system (eg NIN). I don't think you will be unhappy with DP, and if you think you might have any Film/Video projects come your way than DP is a now brainer. You'll also find that DP is very popular for portable rigs and live productions.

    Thanks for your reply D-Edge. I agree with you too. You know, sometimes we're just affraid of changes! :) Tomorrow I'll start the first 'real' project with DP 3... I'll tell you guys my impressions after a longer period with it! Let's see how familiar I'll be :) Thanks!
  6. Hi,

    Regarding my DP+iBook setup... I love it. I'm working on my thesis with DP+Unity DS-1... just flawless.

    One thing I forgot to say: Automation is far easier in DP than Logic. There's also a lot of excellent MAS plugs, and BTW: Unity DS-1 rocks.
