Adapting Logic’s preferences to work efficiently for audio post
- [Instructor] Because Logic's primary role is a sequencer…its default setup will have a metronome, and count-off,…and a bar beat grid, and other things that are useful…in a musical context, but not in the world of audio post.…So let's adapt Logic to fit our work flow.…There are two sets of preferences in Logic,…global and project.…So lets take them one at a time.…In the Logic Pro X menu, preferences, you see general,…audio, MIDI, and so we'll start with general.…
And there's the menu across the top,…but you can choose them each separately too.…So in general, project handling is kind of how Logic…responds when you close the project or open a new project.…Editing, there's some interesting choices here.…I don't really have any recommendations…for adapting Logic audio post here.…
In the audio tab, devices, you're going to want to set…this for your particular studio.…General, there are a couple of interesting things…that you can choose here.…You know the dim level is important.…Maybe, depending on what computer…you're operating on, you want to tweak the latency.…
Award-winning sound designer Joe Godfrey has developed a system for handing off the dialog, music, and effects mix from a Final Cut Pro timeline to Logic Pro. Why Logic? Many of the tools the Final Cut editor is using began there, and Logic has great tools that can be applied to dialog, music, and effects, as well the final mix. There are some things you want to do—in the right order—and some common mistakes you want to avoid. This course covers them all. Learn how to import audio from Final Cut Pro X in Logic Pro X, fix any syncing issues, edit dialog to perfection, add special effects such as pitch shifting and automated EQ, enhance music, and bounce out the final mix, either as a composite track or stems that can be mastered separately.
