I was quite enthusiastic when I unexpectedly heard that Logic Pro was finally becoming available for the iPad. And now that it’s here and I’ve been trying it out during the 30-day trial, I’ve decided it’s not for me after all. And here are my random thoughts as to why:
- The learning curve is higher than I want to deal with right now.
- Back when Logic Pro for the iPad was on my wish list, I was mostly using an iPad for music a lot more than I am now.
I remembered that I stopped doing that when my neck started hurting.
I also remembered how difficult Logic Pro was when I first started using it. Learning how to use it on the iPad feels like I’m starting over.
- I just got a new white desk that I’m very excited about after redecorating my studio. My desktop and controllers are all working nicely together.
I’ve been using desktop computers for decades now and coming from an old school Silicon Valley technology background, I’m more comfortable with that than mobile devices.
Fifty-ninety is coming and I’d rather spend my time being creative and not learning a new workflow on a complex tool on an iPad. Besides, there’s still so much I need to learn using Push2 for Ableton Live.
Will I try it again? Maybe… should my circumstances change.
