I bought logic studio so that it's used in a studio situation.. and Live for live situations... from what I've seen of both, and since I own both, and will own both for years and years to come.. yeah that's my comparison... Logic is for production, Live (can be as well but more so) is for live situa...

what is intriguing me is MainStage.. if that'll be the "live performance" component.. then I'm interested to see what it's like before I jump my gun and wave by to ableton (which I DONT want to do)

So nothing, yourmom's got a point... I reckon the next announcement will be an increment off of 6 so 6.2 or 6.1 as that too has happened every year since 2001, right?
