Funny to see someone post Beato's Apple hatchet job which has not aged well. He should stick to music. As for the OP, $200 is an extremely great value for Logic Pro X. Free updates, tweaked to work efficiently with your Mac with far more features than necessary for casual home recording but with limitless potential as you advance in your recording journey. Personally I have given up on amp sim plug-ins. I much prefer a mic'd amp even at bedroom volumes.
