I was using PT as my main DAW software from I guess around 1999~2000, so I can relate to the initial feeling of "hmm, how do I do this?".

Though I have to say, even though I was initially confused, it's hard to understand exactly why, when I look back! I mean, the input routing is all really obvious, the mixer is a mixer. Editing was a little weird, but it's not too different. The tools are pretty much the same. I guess it's the accumulation of small differences that initially can overwhelm.

I use a system with Logic 9, and a system with Logic X near every day, and on a basics level, the two are very similar... and also "feel" not that different from PT to me.

I have a set of key commands that I've made for Logic that mirror all the most used things from PT, so my back-and-forth between the two is pretty seamless these days.

Yeah...it's pretty darn adjustable.

One thing that really surprised me was how much I like the track stack feature that they rolled out a couple years ago, when mixing, particularly the summing stack.

Logic really not that different than Pro Tools.. more like the difference between a Ford and a Chevy...

It's always best to start with a specific task at hand and learn where all the basic controls are.

As for mouse intensiveness, it's important to look at the Key Commands (option-K) and see what functions are hidden in there... everything can be assigned to a key command or controller button (or both).
When I first got in to using Logic with Audio, I would print out the Key Commands and study all the functionality, so many things are there and as George says, just start with the basics.

I often track in Pro Tools, but I find it's mixing environment too restrictive, and integrating analog hardware is dreadful, especially if you care about phase coherence, but apart from those technical limitations, I don't have much of an issue using both..

Highlight the waveform, then Control + click on it...a little menu pops up.

Choose Convert. Then look for Convert To New Audio Files.

In the "Stereo Conversion" options for that panel, you can choose "Interleaved To Split".

Wherever you write the files to, it will add an L, and an R, at the ends, respectively. Then you can drag them into the project.

I'm not sure how to convert stereo and have the file pop to new tracks automatically, if that's possible or not. Maybe someone else knows.
