- [Voiceover] Welcome to Logic 8, Essential Training. I'm Joe Godfrey, and I'll be your guide through these exercises. I've worked with digital audio as a musician, composer, producer, and sound designer for advertising, TV, film, and new media. If you're a beginner, and you've never dealt with digital audio before, or if you're already working in another program, and you're switching to Logic, I hope you find these exercises to be a stimulating way to learn the program. I've been using Logic since version four. I started with digital audio in the 80's with a Synclavier, then moved to Opcode's Vision, and when that went away, I had to choose a new best friend, and I went with Logic.
Logic has always had a reputation for having a very steep learning curve, and with Logic 8, Apple has pretty much made that go away, and now it has the intuitive feel of a lot of the other programs in the Apple Pro Suite. Logic 8 is probably best known as a music production software, kind of a recording studio on your computer, but lots of other creative artists need the tools that Logic offers. Animators, web designers, game designers, film editors, radio engineers, musicians, everybody that works with audio. Audio projects revolve around good dialog and narration, good sound effects, and good music, and we'll be examining options inside of Logic for those audio elements.
Logic lets you accurately capture a performance, but that's just the beginning. The beauty of editing digital audio is that you can perfect the performance, and modify the performance in a thousand ways. So, in this training, we'll learn how to do that. We'll cover how to record, how to edit, how to use the loops and sense inside Logic to create your own compositions, how to combine sounds so they work together, and how to export. So, let's get started, so you can start creating better audio for your projects.
