Let internationally recognized music producer and Logic Pro presenter Dot Bustelo guide you through the process of creating professional beats for hip-hop, electronic dance, or other commercial music genres in Logic Pro. It all starts with choosing the right drum kit for your song, after which Dot covers recording, quantizing, and arranging your tracks of drums, bass, and synth lines. She then introduces the built-in drum machine Ultrabeat, showing how to step sequence, design your own custom sounds, and create glitchy effects. Next, discover some creative uses for Apple Loops, to adapt completely to the pitch and feel of your song. Then dive deeper into the unique tools for making beats and learn how to time-stretch, quantize, and regroove with Flex Audio, as well as add the most advanced, subtle swing to your beats and broaden your sounds with drum replacement. The final chapter focuses on techniques specific to electronic music, including warping a beat with Space Designer, side-chaining, and making DJ and turntable speed fades.
(music playing) Hi! I am Dot Bustelo and welcome to Logic Production Techniques: Making Beats. I'll start off with the basics of choosing a drum kit and making it your own, with channel strip settings. Then, I'll show you how to rehearse, record, and quantize a basic beat and how to avoid losing your spontaneous creative ideas using capture recording. Then I get into how to create stutter effects using Ultrabeat's Step Sequencer and side chain. (music playing) From there, I'll show you how to customize Apple Loops so they're locked to your groove in both feel and pitch. (music playing) Next are the tools to manipulate timing and tempo by time stretching, slicing, and mapping to an EXS24 instrument.
Then I break down how to use Flex Audio to quantize, regroove, and change feel and song tempo with the different flex modes. And finally, I'll show you how to side chain Logic's compressor and Vocoder plugins. So if you're ready, I'm ready to get started with Logic Production Techniques: Making Beats.
