I have been involved with teaching and recording guitar for the past 10 years. When the first digital work stations came out such as the Roland VS-2480, our shop tried to use these units to record some of our student's and teacher's guitar playing. I was disappointed with the sound quality of these recordings and concluded that a lot of compression was being used/built in to these units to try and 'model' a warm analog sound. For certain situations, these digital workstations could be quite useful but for acoustic instruments, there was still a ways to go before a natural tone was captured within the digital realm. With true 24 bit digital recording now available through programs such as Logic Pro, there is a genuine opportunity to make digital recordings of acoustic instruments which sound 'analogue' to one's ear. I have managed to get some classical guitar recordings which have a great room sound, no distortion which have captured that nuances of tone colour that the classical guitar can offer. I have to admit that I have not gotten into the deeper levels of the Logic Pro program. I have been very focussed on acoustic recordings and want to share that the program is easy, intuitive to use, sound quality is fantastic/natural.

I did into some issues as I am not a 'Mac guy' and faced an 'update learning curve'. Mac's 10.4 update crashed my digital to audio converter etc. I highly recommend that one using Logic Pro not updated or if you do be very careful when doing so.
