The Navigating and Editing chapter provides extensive coverage of the amazing Marquee tool. Mastering this powerful tool will in and of itself dramatically improve editing efficiency and creativity! Zooming, navigating by markers, track importing, editing preferences, and edit grid settings are also presented in a way to help the reader put them to use right away.
Software Instruments are introduced with useful tips on navigating through the library; backing up channel strip settings for the mobile musician; creating instruments; LFO tricks, and programming Ultrabeat,
The Apple Loops chapter addresses removing unwanted elements from drum loops; changing the SI that plays the green loop (as a means of generating fresh sounds); and making your own loops.
Content presentation intensifies in the Remixing and Making Beats chapter. Detailed information is provided on: Adjusting Logic's tempo to the beat; time-stretching audio to Logic's tempo; track import and export; Flex Audio; drum replacement; groove templates; speed fades; making a sampler instrument from a drum loop; and humanizing drum beats.
Good Housekeeping addresses managing projects; bouncing, project templates; patch names for analog hardware; backing up presets and settings; and Notes.
Trouble shooting covers how to trash preferences; setting I/O buffer size; dealing with 3rd party plug-in issues and file corruption.
Having consumed much in the way of print and video tutorials on Logic, I've learned many new useful tips and revisited previously learned information from a fresh perspective in this book. It is not as comprehensive as the Apple Pro books, but is perfectly narrow in focus for the intended audience in the book's subtitle.
This book not only has motivated me to try Logic again, but I've actually created two full songs this month with it....some based on what I've learned over the years, but others coming from this book. I actually found the book after watching a Lynda.com online training title just available featuring the author. The videos were so good, and her reputation on point, that I was hoping that she has other resources available.
Quite a few of the topics in that video course are also part of this book, albeit with more depth and insight. And in addition, there are tons of useful info here that helped increased my confidence in making music with Logic. I just started reading her other book title, "Logic Pro for Recording Engineers & Producers," right about now.
Again, I can't recommend this book enough. Even experienced Logic users can find tidbits to help improve their efficiency and work flow.
Do check it!
I will also soon be purchasing her other guides on Logic Pro with great anticipation. Thank you very much, Dot Bustelo. I can't wait to see what's next.
Would definitely recommend as a good tool for someone trying to get a good grip on Logic.
