Join Todd Howard for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Songwriting in Logic Pro.
There are exercise files associated with this course, and I encourage you to use them to see what techniques I've used in Logic for songwriting. However, I encourage you even more strongly to experiment with your own song ideas instead, to really assist in digesting these techniques. If you're a premium member of lynda.com, the exercise files are available by downloading the ZIP file from this course's page on the website. Simply double click the ZIP file to uncompress it. You'll get this folder, called exercise files. Inside, there'll be a folder or a project file for each video in the course, containing the Logic Pro X project files themselves as well as any associated audio files and samples you'll need to open them.
Again, your own song projects are of far more use to you as my files just pertain to the song I'm building. Where yours, of course, will likely be extremely different in genre, instrumentation and spirit. As long as you don't move the exercise files from their original locations all files should link up properly. However, if you do run into file linking problems when you open any project file Logic should be able to automatically relink the files for you. If not, then you'll need click the Search button or Locate button and navigate to the appropriate audio files for that project manually to relink them.
You'll notice I've have also included final balances of the song, as well as the two project template files that are used in movie two and movie three in chapter one.
