Record, arrange, produce, mix, and master music with this bestselling, Apple-certified guide to Logic Pro. Veteran producer and composer David Nahmani uses real-world professional Logic Pro projects to guide you through step-by-step instructions and straightforward explanations, ranging from basic music creation to sophisticated production techniques.
You'll trigger Live Loops in real time, record audio and software instruments, create and edit sequences, and build arrangements. You'll create both acoustic and electronic virtual drum performances. You'll use Quick Sampler to create stutter effects and vocal chop, and explore ear candy production techniques, such as parallel processing and turntable start and stop effects. You'll use Smart Controls to map knobs, buttons, and drum pads on a MIDI controller or an iPad. You'll harness the power of Smart Tempo to sync up all your audio and MIDI. You'll use Flex Time to stretch audio and correct the timing of recordings, and you'll tune vocals with Flex Pitch. You'll mix, automate, and master the song with EQ, compression, delay, reverb, limiters, and other plug-ins to achieve a professional sound. Finally, you'll create a 3D spatial audio mix with Logic Pro's new Dolby Atmos plug-ins, using binaural rendering to experience that immersive sonic experience on your headphones.
