Description
LOGIC PRO 9 POWER! provides a complete introduction and reference for Logic Pro that covers the things that you are most likely to run into while using Logic to make music, using simple, thorough, and complete explanations. The book also explores why Logic works the way it does, so you’ll not only learn the mechanics of how to do something, but you’ll really understand what you are doing so that when you’re ready to explore on your own, you’ll be fully prepared and successful. After learning how to set up Logic, you’ll learn about the Transport and the Arrange, how to record and edit audio and MIDI, how to mix down your song, and finally how to save your song and organize your files. The final chapters provide guidance on the advanced features of Logic that you’ll need as you create more complex compositions and build a more involved project studio. There’s something here for Logic users of all skill levels -- newbies will learn Logic front to back, while seasoned users will gain lots of tips and tricks as well as a handy desk reference.
