I use Pro Tools by default because it's what I used in school. I've heard some great comments about Logic including that it's more suited for musicians. So this may sound like an open-ended question but is Logic in fact better suited for musicians and also is it easy to pick up? I honestly would have never understood Pro Tools on my own without extensive hands on training in music school.

Okay I'll bite. I am a Logic user, have been for more years than I care to think about...Lets put it this way when I started it ran on an Atari ST. Anyway, I am a solo operator and as such Logic Pro X, that I have only recently updated to, is an excellent compositional companion. Tools like the logic drummer, the excellent built in synths sampler and FX and dynamic processors make it a great compositional tool. If loops are your thing there are thousands built in, not my thing but I do use some now and again. Is Pro Tools better? No idea to be honest, but I have never felt the need to find out. Is Logic perfect? No of course not, it is deep, it takes time to find your way around, and there is much under the hood that seems to be hidden. To counter that is a host of very good tutorials and guides out there. Your not going to just switch and be flying around, but to get up and running does not take too long. The trick is to learn as you go along, if you get stuck, google the problem and the answer is just a click away. I started off doing that a lot, now I have my work flow sorted, it does what I want when I want. I still keep an eye on the facebook groups where interesting stuff gets posted and learn a new trick or two a month. You can get by without buying anything else...Well apart from everything Slate ever makes of course. Hope that helps and if you have any other questions I will endeavour to answer them
