Reviewing Logic Express 9 after the latest version of ( ) has been reviewed is an interesting proposition. After all, Logic Express is really a slightly stripped down version of Logic Studio’s core digital audio workstation (DAW) application, Logic Pro 9. And because it is, any review of Logic Express 9 risks a “me too” rehash of points culled from the Logic Studio review.
Like Logic Studio, Logic Express 9 offers some of Logic Studio’s marquee features—the Flex Tool for easily warping audio phrases and individual notes, the Amp Designer and Pedalboard features, which simulate amps, speakers, microphones, and pedal effects; Varispeed, for slowing down an entire project without changing the project’s pitch so that you can, for example, record a difficult solo; Drum Replacer for replacing real drum tracks with triggered samples; and a new feature for adding guitar chord grids to a score. These elements work just as they do in Logic Studio. They’re musical and add tremendous value to an already capable DAW. The questions that remain for this mid-priced DAW are these: How does it compare to other applications in its price range?
