I have started reading about the possible release of a new
version of ‘Logic’ that like the new ‘Final Cut’, may have
1-a reduced feature set,
2-be sold only in the App Store and
( here’s the big one )
3-will have a substantially lower price.
If this happens will all other DAW makers (Steiny included)
have to follow?
I say this because I remember when all major DAWs
cost around $1000.00 give or take.
(pro-tools being the exception)
But then Apple released ‘Logic’ at $500.00 and now all major DAWs
sell for about that same price.
Let’s say the new Logic comes in at $399.00 or even $299.00.
How many users will jump ship?
Is there a pattern here; a race to the bottom,
and if so how might it affect us Cubase users?
Artistically, finacially, morally?
