Trent Reznor has almost always used a combination of Logic (midi, softsynths) and Protools (audio)

Specific track?...
The first notes of the new album "With Teeth" are drums from Pluggo's "LoFi Drums" plugin sequenced in Logic Pro. The track is called "All the love in the world"

Well heh ME! :D I"m sure all that promo endorsement type stuff is available somewhere's on the Apple site. There was certainly lots on the old Emagic site.
MacPro 2x3 dual core 26GB ram, 30 terabytes eSata hard drive storage, MetricHalo audio interfaces,
BlueSky 5.1 monitoring & some quality outboard Mic Pres & signal processors.

Some names which I remember using Logic: Above & Beyond, Aalto, Super8, Matti Laamanen aka Cosmicman, Darude, Robbie Bronnimann. About everybody who produces dance music uses logic.

I remember an interview with Geddy Lee (RUSH!) around the time of his solo album, talking about how he worked up tracks in Logic.
Jam tracks, rants, etc.

Bassment Jaxx...
I just read that in FM, they've only recently taken it up, though (Kish Kash, I think).

I really like that NIN song (All the Love...), that's interesting that it's pluggo...but it makes sense.

No specific songs, but I know that Radiohead were (are?) Logic users. There was an interview with them where they talked about avoiding Cubase because of its crashiness. Pretty sure they've been on Macs for awhile, too (i.e. not using WinLogic 5), as they used Videodelic to make parts of one of their videos.

Yeah but Trent Reznor uses *everything*! (More specifically his audio guy does...Charlie Clouser). I've seen testimonials from them on tons of different companies' sites.

It's the same with BT. That guy uses everything -- at least long enough to get a free copy of it (and probably a pile of money) for endorsing it!
MacBook Pro (15" unibody, late 2008), OS X 10.5.6, Logic 8.0.2, Reason 4.0.1

Kid 606 scared my friend with his enthusiasm for Logic a while ago, and Mike Paradinas held a Logic workshop or something similar in Sydney last year.

i'd say browse through remix magazine every month. they do a good job of providing gear lists. i'd say, from reading that for awhile, pretty much every person they talk to that isn't a hip-hop producer is using logic ;)

The Chemicals Brothers started using Logic after Surrender - I believe. Previous to that I think they were Cubase on a PC.

I also use Logic :wink:

There are many artists that use logic or dabble with logic to write songs & play on their laptops.
Most records, however, get transfered to protols for final mixing since most engineers and studios prefer using the audio/editing/mixing features in protools and don't need the virtual/midi stuff when it comes time to actually mix a record.

Some folks I know that use logic are Groove Armada, Scissor Sisters, and the Sweedish producers/hitmakers from Cherion like Max Martin & Rami, and other Sweedes Bloodshy and Avant (Britney's songwriters/producers).

Pretty much everyone I know really wants to use Logic but ends up using Digital Performer or Protools to actually do work. Eventually Apple will get Soundtrack Pro/Logic Audio or another new program combining the two (or buy MOTU and roll up SoundLogic Performer Pro 8.0??)[SPAM].. :)
