The covers is beautiful, and accelerate my workflow and makes it easier to write, record, edit and mix my music. My projects are edited faster because i don't program keys... The colors of the skin are beautiful... it was a really excellent purchase. Thanks logic cafe for doing this wonderful cover...
"Im actually in love with my new controlskin, I don't know how I lived without it. Before I used to write down all of the Logic shortcuts and try to memorise them, but with the ControlSkin I just need to look down and everything is laid out beautifully.
Easily one of the most important additions to my studio."

"The Logic control skin is a small but great tool and a must for all Logic Pro users, at first you might think it's not that big a deal, how can it improve me in Logic (i thought that)
Then when i decided to buy it, at such a small cost i thought there's nothing to loose AND believe me it has helped, not only the key commands that come with the skin but what was most impressive was how it has speeded up my workflow in logic. When you get used to the key commands (and it doesn't take long) it's great, there were key commands i never used before and key commands i never even knew were there in Logic and i like to think i know my way around Logic very well. GREAT BUY!
so all in all a brilliant little addition to my Macbook and studio
Also would like to say that any questions you have (like i did) you just tweet Logic-Cafe and they more or less get straight back to you with a answer
All's thats left to say is IT'S A GREAT BUY AND A SMALL PRICE, a 10 out of 10 for me and would recommend to anyone using Logic"
"I have been a logic user for as long as I can remember and would consider myself an expert user (Depending on how you might define that)
I have always used Logics key commands, but to be honest I'd always forget what I'd programmed.
It ended up being easier doing it the long way going through the menus to achieve what I wanted to do.
What I like about controlskin at it's most fundamental level is it's saved me the hassle of being "Really" organised!
In my opinion too many options means you have no options!
Controlskin is really well thought out and once you learn where the commands are your speed around Logic will be faster than you would have ever thought possible.
The feel of the control skin cover may be a little weird at first, but that's a small price to pay for increased productivity.
As you can see from my photo I did add a few of my own commands to the function buttons. I use folders all the time and these commands added to the controlskin commands make for a very fast logic experience indeed!
