While i also think they should iron out some bugs and i miss a few things which are more easy in other DAWs and some instruments could use a GUI update as well, it is still the biggest bang for buck in terms of money i ever bought.
Just curious, what do you think is missing from logic feature-wise?
(I personally only really want DP-style chunks more than anything)
I agree about App store to a degree, but not being able to transfer licenses is problematic (and possibly against the law in EU)
Yes, it is all a pro and contra. While i do not really need more than 2 licenses anyway sometimes it could be handy to have 3, 4 or more available. So if you need more than using 2 licenses at the same time for some reason you have to buy another full license.
With mac app store tools and all iOS apps (which are there some fantastic tools for audio production) you are not limited i think. So if you have 10 devices you might use 10 licenses (but i remember you can set 5 devices to one account, not sure, so it might be limited to 5 at the end).
And you are right. The dark side is mainly no demos (but some apps seems to offer it and you can unlock the full engine then via IAP) and no resell. If that would be the case it would be the better option for me. So far i see benefits on both.
What i miss in Logic? F.e. in general Apple could let us use midi out for AUs (but it seems AUv3 can do this, but it seems only used in iOS so far mainly).
I would like to have no limitation on number of slots inside the midi and FX channel.
While things are maybe possible already i would like some new workflow like having different options to set parallel and serial chains for FX direct in the insert channel strip.
Something like Bitwig modulation offers would be great on top too.
There are a few more specific things like i would really love to have the clip performance view like they did in GarageBand iOS for the apple loops. It works really good. In general i much prefer a timeline sequencer but i really like how easy it is in GarageBand iOS to get some grooves started.
Of course in the future i would like to see Logic ported to iOS in a good way to use for multi-touch and/or i would like to see more innovations in terms of future hardware and software integration. F.e. instead of having to use a remote control app i would like to have a full multi-touch-3D touch screen inside the large trackpads they have now and could use the (really good) GarageBand multi-touch smart instruments. For some things they just working even much better than my Seaboard Rise. As MPE controller for midi out it would be great to have without the need to use my iPhone or iPad.
Of course that is all wishful thinking but while i hear from many people how much Apple do not care about creative musicians anymore i wonder if there is even any other company (which sells computers) which cares a fraction about these things as Apple still do and might for the coming years. Alone to have core audio on a desktop, notebook, tablet and smartphone is a good thing for me.
