This three-day course teaches invaluable real-world techniques for music production and editing, mixing, notation, and scoring to picture with Logic. Throughout the class, students learn numerous professional secrets for streamlining production workflows and constructing a mix to meet the most exacting standards. Experienced Logic users and newcomers alike will find invaluable methods for manipulating tempo and pitch, fine-tuning audio and MIDI tracks, processing MIDI data, managing signal flow, assigning physical controllers, and getting the most out of Logic’s revolutionary software instruments.

Who should Attend:

This class is designed for those who already have a working knowledge of Logic Pro. Beginning Logic users should take the Logic 101 or Logic 102 course. The course is best suited for those who prefer hands-on, interactive instruction to explore the full functionality of Logic Pro. Please note that this course does not cover all lessons in the book, but it does completely prepare students to pass the Logic Pro 9 Level Two exam. Students are free to complete the lessons not covered in the course on their own.
