Overview

Logic Pro X 10.6 Update: Although there has been a 10.6 release since the time that this book was published, the content is still applicable. The changes in 10.6 do not affect the book content.


Record, arrange, mix, produce, and polish your music with this best-selling, Apple-certified guide to Logic Pro X 10.5. Veteran producer and composer David Nahmani uses step-by-step, project-based instructions and straightforward explanations to teach everything from basic music creation to sophisticated production techniques.

 

Learn to populate, trigger, and record Live Loops into cells, record audio and MIDI data, create and edit sequences, and edit regions in the Tracks view to build an arrangement. You’ll create both acoustic and electronic virtual drum performances using Drummer tracks with Drum Kit Designer and Drum Machine Designer. You’ll use Quick Sampler to create an instrument from a single sample to create stutter effects and vocal chop, and explore ear candy production techniques, such as parallel processing and turntable start and stop effects. You’ll use Logic Pro X MIDI FX and Smart Controls to control software synthesizers from a MIDI controller or an iPad. You’ll harness the power of Smart Tempo to make all audio files play in time. You’ll stretch vocal notes and correct timing of recordings with Flex Time, and you’ll explore Flex Pitch to tune a vocal recording. Finally, you’ll mix, automate and master the song, processing your tracks with EQ, compression, delay, reverb and other effect plug-ins to achieve a professional sound.


  • Downloadable lesson and media _ les take you step by step through real-world, hands-on exercises.
  • Accessible writing style puts an expert instructor at your side.
  • Ample illustrations help you master techniques fast.
  • Lesson goals and time estimates help you plan your time.
  • Key Command lists summarize keyboard shortcuts used in each lesson to speed up your workflow.

 

The Apple Pro Training Series is a self-paced learning tool and Apple’s official guide for Logic Pro X. Books in this series also include downloadable lesson files and an online version of the book.

When you choose a plan, you're signing up for a 4-month 'term'. You can opt to make a one-time payment for the initial 4-month term or pay monthly. If you opt for monthly payments, we will charge your payment method each month until your 4-month term has ended. You can turn on auto-renew in My account at any time to continue your subscription before your 4-month term has ended.

When you purchase a Pearson+ subscription, it will last 4 months. Before your initial 4-month term ends, you can extend your subscription by turning auto-renew on in My account.

If you turn auto-renew on, we’ll automatically renew your subscription and charge you every month until you turn off auto-renew. If you made a one-time payment for your initial 4-month term, you’ll now pay monthly.

To avoid the next payment charge, make sure you turn auto renewal off 1 day before the auto renewal date. You can subscribe again after auto-renew has been turned off by purchasing another Pearson+ subscription. We use your credit card to renew your subscription automatically. To make sure your learning is uninterrupted, please check your card details before your first monthly payment.

With a Multi Pearson+ subscription plan, you can download up to 10 titles on the Pearson+ app from My list on each of your authorized devices every month.

When you're using your Multi Pearson+ subscription plan in a browser, you can select and read from as many titles as you like.
