I used to be a die-hard Mac/Protools user, then became a PC/Cubase user, until a friend turned me onto Logic. Logic, to me, is far superior to anything I\'ve previously used, both in its midi capabilities, stability, and in its audio mixing functionality. Its midi environment interface takes a bit of getting used to - for fully taking advantage of its capabilities - but in the end I think you\'d agree that Logic rules as both a midi sequencer and for audio mixing and editing. I\'ve never checked out Sonar, Vegas, or Cool Edit Pro, but I do highly recommend Logic, and of course Giga is awesome. The two together are unbeatable. Have someone who knows Logic show you some of the tricks - its manual is a bit tedious.
Hope this helps........
Which sequencer is the best for Gigastudio on the same PC.
Logic Audio, Cubase, or Sonar?
I have Sonar, excellent but dont like the Auio Mixing or editing capabilities
2. What would you recommend as a good Mixing and editing Program? (Vegas or Cool Edit Pro)
Please be strong in your opinion and your experience with these software as far as usability and quality.
I need you to share some light, its Dark in here!!

I have Vegas Video (I think most Vegas versions are basically the same). IMO it\'s not meant or even suited for serious mixing.
If you can, go for Logic, definitely one of the top programs for sequencing and integrated audio. The upcoming version 5 seems to have a lot of new features and overhauls in the mixing/automation part.
Logic is practically the same on Mac and Windows. From my perspective as user interface designer, I think the interface is quite ideosyncratic and inconsistent, but functionally it is huge, complete, stable, etc.
