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.

Page 31: "Saving the Alternate Tool to Your Screenset" section, step 1:
Unlocking screenset is done by Shift-L, not Shift-Command-L.

Page 33: In the table, a couple of key command shortcuts have errors. The tenth shortcut should read:
"Control-Shift       Pointer tool       Adjusts curves in automation track".

The shortcut that follows it should read:
"Control-Shift       Pointer tool       Adjusts the crossfade curve (when automation view is not enabled)".
