I just set up an iMac for home use, and found that my old version of Finale Allegro isn't compatible. An upgrade costs $300, which doesn't make sense for my limited use (and it would be really irritating).
Garage Band seems like it would satisfy my recording needs, but it doesn't have a real notation feature.
How is Logic Express for notation as well as recording and building tracks?
I mainly want to compose, work out harmonies and modest arrangements. And Logic seems like a good all around tool.
