Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use the exercise files, part of Logic Pro X New Features.
- If you are a premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. The exercise files have been compressed to a zip file called exercise files, which you can download from this course's page on the website. Once uncompressed, you will have a folder called exercise files on your desktop. Inside, you'll see the .logic x files associated with the videos of the same name. As long as you copy these files and folders to your work hard drive and don't go moving folders around, all files will link up.
The first time you open it or if something gets moved, Logic might ask you to re-link the files. In that case, just click search and Logic automatically re-links the files as long as the files are present on your hard drive. If you're a monthly or annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along with your own projects.
Join Scott Hirsch as he dives into Logic X's powerful new synth workstation, Alchemy. From there, you'll be guided through all the key features available in the newest feature set (10.2.1), including enhancements to Drum Machine Designer, new arrangement marker techniques, and techniques to back up and share your Logic projects with the outside world using the groundbreaking new integration with Gobbler and Apple Connect. Your workflow will be improved creatively as well, with a look at new overlapping recording modes for both cycle and non-cycle modes. Scott also explores to the ten new drummer personalities and Drum Machine Designer, as well as the improved Retro Synth and the brand-new Mellotron software instrument, powerful MIDI editing and sequencer features in the revamped Piano Roll Editor, and the enhanced Mixer (now with VCA faders and easy viewing of your Track Stack components). You'll see these and many more enhancements that make Logic Pro 10.1, 10.2, and 10.2.1 instant, must-have upgrades.
