Scott shows how to use samples and Apple Loops, and conform their time and pitch to better fit a song. Next, learn about editing and arranging techniques for both audio and MIDI data. Moving deeper into the program, Scott explains how to work with music notation and score to video. He wraps up the course with extensive information on mixing, exporting, and sharing your final tracks.

(SOUND). More than ever before, a studio is as much a part of music making as the musician. Logic Pro 10 is the complete manifestation of the studio and musician working as one. It's my goal in Logic Pro 10 Essential Training to push you over that initially steep learning curve and into a space where you can be creative. (MUSIC) It's not my desire here to exhaustively cover each and every operation available in Logic, but rather to expose you to a range of the possibilities and situations where you can use Logic to create the music inside your head.

(MUSIC) So through this course, I want to give you the power and freedom to effortlessly navigate the complex windows, multifaceted tools, and feature-rich environment that is Logic Pro X, so you can take full advantage of this incredible sounding music, composition, recording, editing and mixing application. (SOUND). So let's get started with Logic Pro X Essential Training.
