This three-day course teaches valuable real-world techniques for music production and editing, mixing, notation, and scoring to picture. Students learn numerous professional secrets for streamlining production workflows and constructing a mix to meet the most exacting standards. Learn invaluable methods for manipulating tempo and pitch, fine-tuning audio and MIDI tracks, processing MIDI data, managing signal flow, assigning physical controllers, and for getting the most out of Logic’s revolutionary software instruments.
This class is designed for those who already have a working knowledge of Logic Pro. Please note that this course does not cover all lessons in the book, but it does completely prepare students to earn Logic Pro 9 Level Two certification. Students are free to complete the lessons not covered in the course on their own.
