Logic Pro X 10.6 Update: Although there has been a 10.6 release since the time that this book was published, the content is still applicable. The changes in 10.6 do not affect the book content.
Record, arrange, mix, produce, and polish your music with this best-selling, Apple-certified guide to Logic Pro X 10.5. Veteran producer and composer David Nahmani uses step-by-step, project-based instructions and straightforward explanations to teach everything from basic music creation to sophisticated production techniques.
Learn to populate, trigger, and record Live Loops into cells, record audio and MIDI data, create and edit sequences, and edit regions in the Tracks view to build an arrangement. Youll create both acoustic and electronic virtual drum performances using Drummer tracks with Drum Kit Designer and Drum Machine Designer. Youll use Quick Sampler to create an instrument from a single sample to create stutter effects and vocal chop, and explore ear candy production techniques, such as parallel processing and turntable start and stop effects. Youll use Logic Pro X MIDI FX and Smart Controls to control software synthesizers from a MIDI controller or an iPad. Youll harness the power of Smart Tempo to make all audio files play in time. Youll stretch vocal notes and correct timing of recordings with Flex Time, and youll explore Flex Pitch to tune a vocal recording. Finally, youll mix, automate and master the song, processing your tracks with EQ, compression, delay, reverb and other effect plug-ins to achieve a professional sound.
The Apple Pro Training Series is a self-paced learning tool and Apples official guide for Logic Pro X. Books in this series also include downloadable lesson files and an online version of the book.
