Hey LL, thanks for all of your comments. I am very much like you in that I did my homework on Logic 9 and relied heavily on MPV tutorials to accomplish that. In fact, I have pretty much every MPV tutorial on Logic 8 and 9, and I agree that these are great eduational tools. I'm sure the tutorials available for Logic X are similarly very helful to get anyone up to speed and cranking great stuff with all the cool new tools that X has to offer. Maybe I'm suffering from tutorial burnout or from input overload, as I actually spent about two years entirely in a training mode, without recording anything, to get my arms around all of the software I had acquired (my self-imposed 'music training academy', as I call it). This was a labor of love and required a lot of determination (on top of keeping up with my day job). The impetus was mainly Apple's relentless output of new operating systems. For example, back in 2010, I'd had my eye on NI's Komplete package for years, and when I went to buy it, the only product available required Mac OS 10.6 and above, but my computer had Leopard OS (10.5). I had invested heavily in that computer, including getting all of my hardware device drivers aligned with the 10.5 OS. So I decided to go all out and actually bought a new power-packed quadcore with Snow Leopard. At that point, I also bought a huge pile of software that I had on my wishlist, including NI's Komplete, Melodyne, Superior Drummer, Omnisphere/Trillian and many others. The stack of boxes was literally 3 feet tall. I just figured that I would shoot my wad and get all of this before Apple upgraded the OS a couple more times and made my 10.6 system obsolete. I had no idea what an enormous universe of learing that was. Just getting my arms around Komplete alone took ungodly amounts of time, but I leveraged all of the MPV tutorials on this subject and for all of the other software I bought. I'm a nerdy kind of guy that likes to understand the things I spend money on. This effort has really paid off, as I now have a huge pallette of sounds and techniques to work with. So, to sum up, maybe I'm just sufferring from burnout on the learning curve, as it seems like I've spent more time studying tutorials over the last several years than making music. I did get a double-album finished a couple of months back and am into a new project, so I'm not just a perpetual student. When all is said and done, I am completely reinforced about the effort I spent to study the software, as the stuff I am making now is worlds better than what I used to produce. And I really appreciate the awesome support that MPV has provided over the years. I couldn't have done this without them. I read everything that they put out on the Hub. Hence, my previous comments about the fixation on Logic X, as I'm not going there just yet.
