From the Back Cover

If you've ever dreamed of setting up your own recording studio, Apple's newly acquired Logic high-end audio software is the perfect place to start, and this Apple-certified book provides the training you need to begin creating audio master works with it. Whether you're looking to digitize your musical compositions, create cost-effective 5.1 surround soundtracks, or transfer that song from your head on to CD, this comprehensive book will show you how.

Multimedia artist and veteran audio producer Martin Sitter, along with veteran Logic instructor and keyboardist Robert Brock, uses step-by-step instruction and straightforward, jargon-free prose to demonstrate how you can employ Logic's software synthesizers, sampler, and digital signal processors (compressors, reverbs, and so on) to put the perfect aural polish on your audio creations. You can work through the guide from cover to cover for an entire, hands-on course on Logic--complete with review questions at the end of each chapter, and lesson files and a trial version of Logic on the accompanying CD-ROM. Or you can go straight to the sections that interest you most.

Format: Paperback
I was a HUGE fan of Sitter's first edition training book for Logic 6, as indicated in my review of that book. I am a seasoned semiprofessional who uses Logic Pro 7 on a daily basis (and I have been a user going back to the C-Lab notator products which I used on my Atari ST's way back in the late 80's), but I still found little tidbits and hints, workflow ideas, and features that either I wasn't using or that I wasn't using efficiently; therefore Sitter's first book was a true blessing in disguise, even though touted for "beginners", it was truly for "everyuser". In fact, I considered it a paradigm for books of this covered almost all features of this complicated program in a very readable, fun, and staged fashion.

So it was with great anticipation that I awaited delivery of the newest version for version 7 of Logic. I have been amazed at all of the new stuff in Logic 7, much of it not only new, but trend-setting, in fact. The new book covers practically all these new features; e.g., Apple Loops, Global tracks, etc., and more, in Sitter's easy-to-follow style.

I have already gone through the book twice and picked up on tons of new stuff that I have implemented into my daily work with Logic 7. If you are a user, whether beginner, intermediate, or advanced, you would be hurting yourself (and your clients!) by not reading this book at least once! This is true especially if you want to get the most out of Logic 7's new features, as the book does an excellent job at steering you through them via GREAT tutorials. I was expecting to see the book for version 6 with a few extra chapters for version 7, but I was pleasantly surprised...THE BOOK HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REWRITTEN FOR VERSION 7!

My excitement at being the proud owner of Logic Pro 7 was quickly tempered by the sheer complexity of the software. I spent time with the included documentation and even bought another training book. But it was this book that unlocked Logic's power for me.

Each chapter is a standalone lesson on a different aspect of Logic that takes about an hour to complete. The lessons are well thought out and quickly empower the reader. The author allows the reader to experience one easy success after another which quickly built both my confidence and competence with the software. After completing the first chapter, I smiled wide and was once again excited about using Logic. I found the author's style to be encouraging, easy to read and not condescending.

Printed on high quality paper and signature bound, the book easily lays flat on a desk. The DVD included with the book has two Logic sessions for each chapter: One for use at the beginning of a lesson and one that demonstrates the end result. I recommend this book without reservation to Logic novices and expect that even seasoned pros can learn new tips and time saving techniques.

I bought this Apple manual because the Logic Platinum 6 full manual is downright bad (max 1.5 stars out of 5): language poor, layout poor, index awful, repeats itself.

So, now I've finished this Brock & Sitter tutorial; I did it straight through, as recommended; and I'd say the pluses and minuses are as follows:

1. Tutorial material (example songs) all worked and were well co-ordinated with the text.
2. Major orientation of me to Logic's layout happened (which is what I was aiming at). Now I can go ahead and do recording, editing, etc., without having those annoying 'what the hell is an Environment Object'? and such-like questions gnawing at me, which I couldn't seem to solve using the Emagic manual.
3. Writing is adequate for what it attempts, and does not waste words (well, a little...see below).
4. Good illustrations in the book that helped the flow of information and often helped me find the right place on the screen and do the right thing when I did.
1. If I knew anything at all about Logic, I'm pretty sure I'd have been disappointed. It's not a pro manual.
2. In order to get my understanding of how Logic operates, I had to line one complete chapter with handwritten notes and essentially write my own analysis of the deep abstract structure of Logic (which I may post on the web some day). While this manual gave me work with to achieve this analysis, it sure didn't do it for me. (On the other hand, the real Emagic manual didn't even give me a place to start from; it was hopeless trying to get oriented from it).

Martin Sitter's "Logic Pro 7 and Logic Express 7" is a outstanding accomplishment. While taking very little for granted and offering clear explanations and tutorials for sometimes difficult areas, the more experienced will find many tips and shortcuts that offer a wealth of useful information I doubt could be learned any other way. The DVD which comes with the book includes Lesson Files for each chapter and even a trial version of Logic Express 7 itself. This is the least expensive way I know of to try out the program and determine whether or not it suits your needs. A word of caution however, there is considerable confusion concerning differences between the two programs. While I am grateful to Apple for making such a truly remarkable and well-behaved program available at such a relatively modest price, perhaps Logic Express 7 should have been named Logic "Lite" for while it is amazing what can be accomplished with it, the Express version contains several hundred less options than the "Pro" version. Certainly if you want to do much with Scoring to Video or Surround Sound you will have to purchase Logic 7 Pro.
