Creative sound mixing can improve even the dullest recording. You're probably familiar with Space Designer's built-in impulse responses, but did you know you can create your own? David Dvorin, author of Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro X Advanced Audio Production: Composing and Producing Professional Audio, shows how to add custom IRs that you can apply anytime, for any sort of sound design you have in mind.

In this chapter from Apple Pro Training Series: Final Cut Pro X 10.2: Professional Post-Production, Brendan Boykin walks you through the first edit, or rough cut, of a project.

In this lesson from Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro X 10.1: Professional Music Production, you will produce virtual indie-rock, hip-hop, and electro-house drum tracks. After selecting a genre and choosing the best drummer for your project, you will adjust the drummer’s performance, making her play busier patterns or simpler ones, louder or softer, and changing the feel, almost like a producer would communicate with a real drummer in a recording session.

Learn how to import media from Final Cut Pro X 10.1, including importing from a camera, importing from a volume, and media import options, in this excerpt from Apple Pro Training Series: Final Cut Pro X 10.1 Quick-Reference Guide.
