Join Dot Bustelo for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Logic Production Techniques: Making Beats.
If you are a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The exercise files have been provided as a DNG file so the audio files that Logic needs to access for each project will link up properly. Simply download the Exercise Files DNG and double-click it to mount the disk image on your desktop.
You'll see a folder for each chapter inside the Exercise Files volume, and inside each chapter folder will be a subfolder for each movie. Inside there, you'll find the Logic project file for the movie. Launch it, and you can follow along with me as we work through the course. Occasionally, I'll be using one of my full sessions for the demonstration, and I've provided you with only a portion of the project. They should still be enough for you to work along with me and practice the technique.
If you are a monthly member or an annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can still follow along from scratch with your own assets.
