I'm confused! I'm sure this has been discussed (more than once) in the past but from what I've read on the Apple site and have been told is that the most recent version of Logic Express is actually the same core as Logic Pro. From the Apple web site it looks like they repackaged Logic Pro into Logic Studio which includes a host of other stuff (MainStage, Sound Track, besides Pro) BUT to buy JUST Logic Pro without the Suite of other stuff that's now what Logic Express is. Please excuse me if I'm WAY off base about this (I'm in the learning curve with the mac stuff). but can someone please shed some light on this? Does Logic Express 8 have the same functionality as JUST Logic Pro 8 or is it a "scaled down" version of the core Logic Pro? Check out the Apple site. It seems to imply it's the same. Thanks!
