    well, I can't seem to adjust the AX8's LCD contrast. I read the manual and followed the instruction to find this function, but no joy. I can't even get to the "option" to adjust contrast (or brightness for that matter) Can anyone test this on their own AX8 and let me know if you succeed?

    High Gainers - safe to move from 9.02 - 11?

    Logic Pro X released today. I knew it was coming.

    For $200.00 this is a STEAL (for new users). Space Designer and Delay Designer are easily worth twice that on their own. Too bad you can only use them in Logic. For the prosumer however (who's been waiting 4 years for this release), it is an unabashed slap in the face. PT10, then PT11.
