If you’re into creating sound samples, composing music, and building complex tracks, we have a soon-to-be-released course that you’ll want to check out! Authored by Joe Godfrey, who also taught our three Pro Tools training courses, our new Logic Pro X tutorial covers beginner concepts and multiple aspects of the popular music creation suite. Its users range from hobbyists who create beats, sound designers working in the game and film industries, and musicians who create music to sell on online platforms such as iTunes and Amazon (and from traditional sites like the trunks of their cars).
What can you create?
When creating music with Logic Pro X, there are four types of tracks to work with:
- Audio files you record within Logic – such as vocals or guitar
- Audio loops from Logic’s library
- Audio that is extracted from a movie or other source – this is audio that wasn’t recorded in Logic, but that you’re working with
- Sounds that are created using Logic’s large collection of virtual instruments
With Logic, you are able to compose songs and build tracks at the same time. Whether you’re new to Logic, or upgrading from a previous version, you will notice an abundance of new features that are sure to enhance your music creation experience. Among these new features is the noticeable redesign of the user interface. The new look makes it easy to navigate and find the controls you’re looking for, ultimately helping you achieve results quickly and more efficiently.
Another notable feature is the Drummer – which has 15 drummers from various genres, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs. There is also a bass player and bass amp simulator.
If you’re interested in learning Logic Pro X, or want to brush up on your skills, stay tuned for the complete course that will be released in the coming weeks. Joe explores new features as well as all of the basics you’ll need to get started.
