A safe choice for anyone that wants to pursue a career in the music production business, lot's of famous producers and studios use Logic. Also it's easy to get started with, you can basically begin by using Garage Band for free, and when you outgrow it, pay $200 for a massive upgrade to Logic Pro X. Projects from GB are even interchangeable with Logic! Logic Pro X has an incredible built-in sound library ( 60 GB +/- ), and awesome sounding plugins built-in, for a third of the price of other professional DAW's with similar functionality. One tip that I always tell people is: Make the most out of the built-in effects and utilities, BEFORE starting to waste money on plugins. That way you learn the DAW's ins and outs and when you actually hit a wall, then you can start looking for a plugin to solve your problem / need, AFTER reading the fantastic documentation that comes with Logic, and also, get this book: https://amzn.to/2MMshH6

Pros:

Simplicity, you can choose to use it as an advanced version of Garage Band, or enable advanced settings and the sky is the limit

Cons:

The only "con" I can think of after the 10.4.4 update is that it's MacOS only.

@matejsarlija Thanks for reading it! 👍 I stand by it, Logic is an incredible, feature rich package. Learn the included plugins well, and you can basically do without a single audio plugin, which saves you a ton of money.
