I am integrating a (or moving to) a MacBook Pro in my studio, and i decided to add Logic Pro X to my setup.
I am *not* proposing to discuss if and why move to Logic from Cubase (the subject is a deadhorse ), but i am asking, for those that either
migrated already or use both Cubase and Logic, what are the important thing to keep in account for a Cubase old user when moving to Logic Pro.

Suggestions ?

Maurizio

PS: just because somebody will want to know: i'll use the laptop in the studio but also travalling and commuting; i cannot afford to loose the eLicenser key in the Parisian metro,
so this pushed me to explore Logic. Use of touchbar, better efficiency, better integration with mission control, the Cubase update costs, and plain curiosity are the other factor.
I do not know if i'll quit Cubase yet.


Nord Electro 5HP, OB-6, Mac Pro, Komplete 11, Arturia collection V, cubase Pro 9.5, Rameau upright.

I can't say, never having used Cubase. But I love Logic. I've been using it since version 8, which makes me a little late to the game. I think Logic Pro X has been a great codebase, and Apple has been upgrading, fixing, and adding features for free since it came out in 2013. Good luck with your transition!


The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!

I moved the opposite direction years ago when Emagic was bought by Apple and I switched to Cubase for PC. The most important thing for me was MIDI integration with external hardware, which both did well. Least having a patch list for your OB6 could be helpful. I need to find one for Cubase myself still. I haven't looked hard enough yet. Another thing I find important is audio routing flexibility since I incorporate external effects processors into my setup as well. Cubase makes that a breeze once you figure it out and it's set up.

But otherwise, a DAW is a DAW. I had to get used to the new workflow, but then again, each move on Cubase again forces workflow changes with new features. If it resonates with you, use it.

I did exactly the same. I loved Logic but as a Windows user I had to go to Cubase which is still my primary DAW. The latest version of PreSonus Studio One is quite compelling but I have finish some old stuff because I could make the full switch.
