Allihoopa So some of you know that I'm a big fan of making music with my iPad and iPhone. One of my favorite apps is Figure, by Propellerheads; it's an incredibly easy-to-use and intuitive tool for making quick, small pieces of music. Great for sketching or just jamming out with. A while ago, Propellerheads started a site called Propellerheads Discover, which was designed around uploading Figure, Take, and Reason tracks to their own little version of a social network. You could then download project files from artists you followed, remix and build on them, and then upload them again. Just today they rebranded Discover as Allihoopa. For the past week or so I've been adding some of my Figure sketches and doodles (including an Undertale track I built of of one of @rnn's projects) to the site. Check it out and follow me, and if you're also uploading stuff to Allihoopa, post your profile here so people can follow you.
After spending about 10 years with Garage Band, someone gave me Reason Essentials last year and I was very excited to try it out. But most of the things I like to write are orchestral or at least have an orchestral backbone and Reason was not very good for that (just trying to find a place to buy the Miroslav Refill was overly difficult). So I'm looking to start fresh with a new DAW that will fit my needs better. Since I use a MacBook Pro and have experience with Garage Band, I'm leaning towards Logic Pro. I hear it's orchestral stuff is pretty good and the $200 price point doesn't hurt. But I wanted to get some opinions from the community here first. Is Logic Pro good for orchestral writing or should I check out something else?
