Why the hurry? Isn't 9 still good? I have been using Cubase and Logic side by side for the last 4 years. I recently upgraded to Cubase 7. An upgrade with a troublesome start and it took 1/2 year and 5 updates from Steinberg to get it right. All along Logic performed well, and sometimes I needed to move projects from Cubase to Logic to make it work. There is nothing in Cubase 7 I can not do in Logic. The new interface of Cubase is more modern and the new mixer is just great with improved workflow that saves some time, but Logic would have yeilded the same music and the same quality. Before upgrading to Cubase 7, I was on Cubase 5. I did not see the need of any Cubase 6. As Logic 9 is a great software I have not seen the need of an upgrade yet. Don't understand the hype for x. Make music instead.
