You do know there are free Logic control programs for iPad, right? It might not be Logic on iPad, but now iPad can easily replace some of those two thousand dollar touch control pads. :)

A lot of the reason for the FCP X rewrite was to transition the program to 64bit carbon since Logic is already 64bit carbon I feel they're less likely to screw it up. Precisely because Logic is relatively small seller it is likely to not get messed with to much (I hope!). I think it may get some of the Soundtrack Pro functionality and be sold as a companion to the FCPX (with Aperture being the new "pro" media/meta data manager.


"A lot of the reason for the FCP X rewrite was to transition the program to 64bit carbon since Logic is already 64bit carbon I feel they're less likely to screw it up."

I think you mean 64-bit Cocoa. Carbon is 32-Bit only. On a side note, I think they should merge Logic Pro & Logic Express. Having the two is not really necessary.

Part of the big FCP X debacle relates to the manner in which Apple launched it. It has improved significantly since then and you're right it definitely needed a rewrite and brand new architecture.

I was kidding. Just a nod to the future when maybe, more pro level software might make it onto iOS. Of course, the world will be a different place by then. iOS and Mac OS X might have become almost the same.


we don't want an iOS OSX merger. not now, not ever.
