That's not a fair comparison. If Apple want they can buy Steinberg, Cakewalk, Prosonus, Avid, Motu, Presonus, Image-Line, Propellerhead, Cockos and Ableton tomorrow and dismantle and lay off the competition. My point is then that Apple has virtually unlimited resources (for what they want to offer naturally). For comparisons look at those companies and maybe a few others.Trump2016 wrote: Compare with Apple's release a few days ago of GarageBand for iOS where they reinvented the UI of a touch interface sampler in an amazing way, along with files, AB, and AU support.
I feel the upgrade fees are both not steep and fair. I do hope Standard users get a good deal too.
