This is great software, but as of Dec 2011 it has been discontinued, and Apple are currently (18 Jan '12) offering no upgrade path. So if you buy it, this will be it. No patches or updates. Having said that, this 'baby brother' of Logic Studio has all the DAW features a small project / home recording studio needs. Or if you want to 'move up' from Garage Band you will find hundreds of tools and features to matching your growing talent!
