  • Logic, Sampletank, and/or GarageBand?

    I'm not familiar with most music software and was wondering what should I get if I want to use the most realistic sounding software instruments?

    I have GarageBand for iMac but I wonder if the touch screen version for iPad has more capability sound wise that I'm missing on my iMac?

    Then the pros say it's really between programs like Logic and Pro Tools and GarageBand is just a toy, not a real program for recording or mixing.

    However, I've heard the online demo of SampleTank and am really impressed with the sound quality. Sampletank has an iPad version so I'm wondering, if I want realistic sounding software instruments, if I should just cut out the middleman and go that route? The reason people recommend Logic or Pro Tools is usually because you can play more and alter the sound. But if I'm already getting a great sound from SampleTank on iPad, do I need Logic?

    I'm basically dealing in the rock genre sound so I'm going for a heavy rock sound from software instrument. I hope helps gives people enough of an idea that they can recommend one or the other from my choices.

    Thank you.

    I have Logic and I believe all the IK Multimedia sampler/synths. It's some very good stuff for the price and I'd recommend it. Get it, put it to good use and don't worry about what others are doing or saying!
    Gotta have my Guitars, gotta have my Keyboards, gotta have my computers so I can record my Guitars & Keyboards!

      I just started using Garageband with my new mac. I plan to upgrade to Logic Pro when I have mastered all the functions nd completed the tutorials for the macbook. I have friends with macs who reckon Logic is as good as Pro Tools.

        Thanks, guys. I think I'm going with Logic on an Imac and i may experiment with sampletank.

        But I just found this video where this kid gets a cool 'guitar sound" out of a Yamaha synth. I really want this synth now but it's a lot of green for one.
