Emmy-nominated composer, educator, author, and performer, David Dvorin has composed music for film, CD-ROM, and television, as well as numerous concert works. He has produced several CDs and DVDs of his own work and collaborated extensively with such musicals luminaries as composer Terry Riley and the Kronos Quartet. In addition to his musical activities, David helped develop the education market for both Emagic (the original maker of Logic) and Apple. He is currently a professor of music composition and electronic music at California State University, Chico.
If you want to go beyond the basics of creating and producing music with Logic Pro, this Apple-certified guide is for you. Whether you’re a composer, producer, songwriter, engineer, studio programmer, or simply a music-lover who wants to create or produce professional-quality music in your Logic-based studio, you’ll find the self-paced, step-by-step instruction you need to begin creating your audio master works immediately.
As a professional musician, educator, and a former employee of both Emagic and Apple, author David Dvorin knows Logic like no one else. Here, he uses project-based tutorials to guide you through real-world production tasks, revealing Logic’s secrets along the way. In short order you’ll be scoring and composing, creating your own sounds with Logic’s software instruments, and employing advanced mixing, editing, and production techniques. A companion DVD includes the lesson and media files needed to complete the book’s exercises, plus free trial Logic plug-ins from leading manufacturers.
Note to customer: Logic Pro 9 runs on Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later.

One word: Wow!,
This review is from: Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro 9 Advanced Music Production (Paperback)As I've written here before, I'll qualify my review by saying I've used Logic in various forms all the way back to the C-Lab days in the early 90's in some form or the other. Since Apple has purchased Logic from Emagic, it has become a lesson in efficiency and design. Never the simple program, Logic has layers and layers of functionality that require years to master.
With this one book, the author fills the void that has heretofore been missing for us Logic users wanting to go "the extra mile" with our productions and knowledge.
I purchase and evaluate every single book on Logic, as I teach several courses on recording, mixing, mastering, and production, using various methods. My main program is Logic, even though I had gone through a brief Pro Tools phase (because everyone else was doing it---not a "mistake", but I feel the name "Pro Tools" misleads too many into thinking that it is the "best"---their marketing certainly is)...

Caution - NO DVD content link with Kindle version,
This review is from: Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro 9 Advanced Music Production (Paperback)I want to warn users of Logic 9 who want to purchase the Kindle version of this book that Amazon.com does not provide a link to download the extra materials/projects/media that is supposed to accompany this book.
Other online vendors, i.e. Peachpit.com, do provide a link that is provided by the author/publisher so that the DVD content can be downloaded to your computer. Without this extra content - you're only getting part of what you pay for.
I have personally been trying to get this remedied... but so far Amazon.com has not provided me with a link to this material.
I would say that from browsing the Kindle version of the book content that this would be an excellent book... but at this time it should be purchased as an electronic book from other vendors.

This review is from: Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro 9 Advanced Music Production (Paperback)This book is so informative that it makes me realize that I ALWAYS need to read a manual first. Actually if all manuals were laid out as good as this one, I'd probably be a smarter person by now!!! But seriously I can't say enough about the progress I've made since purchasing this book. I already use Logic Pro 9 to record but this really puts me in the game. Thanks a million for helping us all.
