With a new plug-in that re-creates the sounds of 11 of the world's best-known guitar amps, distributed audio processing (which lets you tap into a virtually unlimited number of Macs), new software instruments (including a killer drum machine), and a slew of workflow enhancements, it's no wonder you're chomping at the bit to start using Logic Pro 7 and its streamlined sibling Logic Express 7. This Apple-certified guide ensures that you do-effectively, efficiently, and in as little time as possible! Veteran audio producer Martin Sitter uses step-by-step, project-based instruction and straightforward, jargon-free prose to detail the countless creative options Logic affords for audio production. After showing you how to set up Logic and begin recording audio with it, Martin details editing sequences, mixing techniques, and using Logic's software synthesizers, sampler and digital signal processors to put the perfect aural polish on their audio creations. The accompanying CD includes all the lesson files and media you'll need to complete the book's lessons.

Updates & Corrections

Page 304: Changing a selected note's Num setting. With the Logic 7.1 update, Apple changed the Logic application so that when you change the selected Note's Num setting by entering "C4," the note value is reset to an erroneous value. This appears to be a bug in the software. Until Apple releases a fix, use the following workaround: Drag the value to move the note, or enter the note's number (1 through 128). If you are using Logic Pro 7.0, the exercise works correctly.

Page 379-383: Using the Audio Crossfade Tool with Apple Loops. With the Logic 7.1 update, Apple changed the Logic application so that fades no longer work on Apple Loops. Until Apple releases another dot revision to correct this problem, four pages of this book, pp 379-383, are affected. If you are using Logic Pro version 7.1 or later, the exercises on these pages will not work correctly. If you are using Logic Pro 7.0, the exercises work correctly.
