With a new plug-in that re-creates the sounds of 11 of the world's best-known guitar amps, distributed audio processing (which lets you tap into a virtually unlimited number of Macs), new software instruments (including a killer drum machine), and a slew of workflow enhancements, it's no wonder you're chomping at the bit to start using Logic Pro 7 and its streamlined sibling Logic Express 7. This Apple-certified guide ensures that you do-effectively, efficiently, and in as little time as possible! Veteran audio producer Martin Sitter uses step-by-step, project-based instruction and straightforward, jargon-free prose to detail the countless creative options Logic affords for audio production. After showing you how to set up Logic and begin recording audio with it, Martin details editing sequences, mixing techniques, and using Logic's software synthesizers, sampler and digital signal processors to put the perfect aural polish on their audio creations. The accompanying CD includes all the lesson files and media you'll need to complete the book's lessons.
Computerized music production has undergone a revolution in the past several years. Where once you needed a studio filled with synthesizers and rackmount systems, mixing consoles, microphones, and of course, the high-priced talent that could afford all those expensive toys, now all it takes is a laptop and Logic 7.
Logic 7 is a true studio in a box. For less than half the price of a good hardware synthesizer, Logic 7 comes with everything you need to make professional music. There's a sampler, 33 software instruments, and 70 high-quality DSP effects (in Logic Pro). Everything you need to make awesome sound comes tightly wrapped and integrated into this one package. And with its updated interface and support for Apple Loops, Logic 7 is now easier to use (and more musical) than ever before. It has truly grown into a "killer app."
Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro 7 and Logic Express 7 is based on the premise that a technical book should be more than a tour of menus, commands, and windowsit should show you how to actually use the application. In this book, you will learn how to use Logic 7 by building a complete song from the ground up. If you've never used Logic before, you can follow the lessons to see how a song is made: importing audio, arranging audio and MIDI to create a composition, mixing volume levels and pan positions, and adding DSP effects that turn a good mix into a song that really shines. If you're an experienced audio professional, you'll appreciate the many tips and suggestions that will help you streamline your workflow in Logic and get the most out of the application.
