I've been wanting to get into making music for ages but I'm not sure if I can justify spending £200 on a bit of software I might get bored of using after a couple of days. I have a MIDI keyboard and everything.
In the end one feels sorry only about steps they've never taken.

You won’t find any better value for money in the music production software space.

WHat's keeping you from using Garageband? It's incredibly powerful.

As someone that has been with Logic since it was 2.01 (under eMagic), it's pretty much the greatest deal out there if you are even casually thinking about getting into music. Simply can't be beat for what you get for the $.
