    Default Producing and DJing with Logic

    Hello everyone.

    I know this is a dj forum, but I think you would know what I'm talking about.

    I am planning to buy Logic Pro 9, a maschine micro, nanokontrol and other software (sausage fattener, turnado)
    And with the maschine I will get massive and 6gb of other VSTI's.

    I was wondering:
    1. If you could mix songs (yes dj) with logic.
    2. if you could put chroma caps on the maschine micro and nanokontrol?
    3. Should I get something else instead of [software/hardware]?

    The main reason I want:
    1. the maschine comes with 6gb of software
    2. The nanokontrol has 8 knobs, for the 8 turnado knobs
    3. I'd rathe be able to feel and see what I'm doing instead of touching a flat screen.

    Yeah, I hope you can provide me advice on the above.

    Tl;dr:
    Getting logic, maschine micro and nanokontrol

    1. If you could mix songs (yes dj) with logic.
    2. if you could put chroma caps on the maschine micro and nanokontrol?
    3. Should I get something else instead of [software/hardware]?

    1. It wouldn't be my choice for it, but I'm sure it's possible. I really think you're better off using Ableton.
    2. http://forum.djtechtools.com/showthread.php?t=40974
    3. Ableton gets my vote -> Akai APC40, Novation Launchpad, wait for Push.

    If you're looking for one piece of software you can DJ and produce with, then yes Ableton. If you're looking for an Ableton controller that you can DJ and produce with, I would recommend the Akai APC 40 or, like SlvrDragon50 said, wait for Push.

    You could DJ with a Maschine, but you'd have less control. However, Maschine makes for a fantastic production tool, especially with Ableton. I have both and love them.

    +1 on Ableton for DJing and producing.

    If you really insist on using Logic , you might as well get another software like Traktor , VDJ , Serato for djing !
    Traktor Kontrol S2 :: Midi Fighter Classic :: Akai APC40 :: 17" Acer
    Check out our new "D.O.D - What Time?" Remix! : http://snd.sc/1bvF1xf

    I might start with logic, and try it out, and move to something else if I don't like it. Like datsik did.

    Why do you want Logic so badly?

    I like the look of it. Plus, it's cheaper than 800 dollars, which is what all of what I'm getting is.

    Edit: when I had no idea what I was doing, I got a launchpad, with ableton demo. I kinda saw ableton as something you run loops through to make music, and I couldn't see how to actually put together a song.

    You can definitely produce in Ableton.

    You combine loops to create a song. I'm new to production as well, but I dont find production in Ableton necessarily difficult.
