Whoops, I’m a little late with this one.
I’m going with Logic Pro X as the choice of software for my second project. While I’m already familiar with GarageBand, Logic is clearly the superior program and has a lot more options to augment and manipulate sounds (the array of amps and synthesizers is also far superior). I’m not fundamentally opposed to Ableton, in fact I’ve actually heard good things about it, but I won’t bother learning the basics of a completely new program when my familiarity with Logic Pro X is already improving. I hope to use a good variety of synth pads and use automation to achieve a cool sound. I will also use the drum machine to make this project dynamic!
