I'm a Logic user, and according to the announcements from emagic, Logic 6
will run on OS 9 as well as X. I'm counting on that, as I'm not ready to
switch to X full time. Anyway, it'll probably be the last big upgrade to run
on 9. I'm sure it'll be X-only from 7.0 on...

As for Cubase, I know it's a popular app and has its many fans, although
I'll point out here that Apple has seen fit to go with emagic for its
"official' audio app, so its continued development, state-of-the-art
features and updates, are assured. It appears to have a robust future.

Are you happy with DP? I'm sure it still has a continuing future on the Mac
as well, and it has the unique distinction of having always been written
expressly for the mac from the ground up... if you feel the need to switch,
then switch, I guess...
