I'm with you on the routing issue, at least it's doable in Logic now though, for a long time it wasn't. I ALWAYS record softsynths right to audio tracks as I play them, so this is crucial for me (and one reason I don't use StudioOne, which is think is awesome otherwise).
Personally, I really think Logic is overdue a massive overhaul, even if it pisses off some power users. The audio editing is archaic compared to most DAWs, and in many ways I think it's way too bloated for 99% of users.
I put out a solid effort to do everything in Logic and while I did get further along in songs due to the lack of endless noodling you often get using Live I still didn’t complete a track (my big enemy: Endless stacking regardless of DAW). But I did run into things that are just effortless in Live that are a bit of a head scratcher with Logic. Then I put some time into Maschine and that made more sense with Live with dragging patterns from Maschine into clips in Live for experimentation and editing. I’m wondering if Apple is considering introducing something like Live’s clip matrix since other developers seem to be adding something similar to their software. Beyond Main Stage Logic is really falling behind in the performance and pattern based experimentation and writing department.
Then there’s the possibility that they add some of the features they introduced in Garageband for iPad like the instruments that practically play themselves in key and drum pattern building and variations based on grid placement.
And doubtful, but it would be nice if Apple made their own idevice controller app. I’m sure the Logic developers are more than just a little interested in doing that.
Also Apple is having a keynote some time this month and traditionally this is the time of the year when the keynote is music focused (ipod, itunes, iCloud match this year). So it would make sense for them to also have news about Logic.
