"I think the new Logic Pro is Amazing. Down by the side of me I have a trackball mouse. I also use the Logic app on my iPad. This makes life very easy. I shall be definitely be blogging about this on my Lyn's Mac disability blog.
"The buttons on the app are really big and nice. Imputing notes is really nice. I like the white text on black in Logic, makes things really easy to see.
"Thank you Apple very much for my Macbook Pro. This will really help in live performances. Being able to work at home and then take everything to rehearsal will be amazing. This will open up a new world of possibilities for me as a musician in the British Paraorchestra."
