Quick introduction to Logic

Postby Richard Graham » Sat Dec 22, 2012 8:24 am

Good morning all, Ive recently "gone Mac" (OSX Mountain Lion) and bought Logic Express 9 off eBay for £20. It's great... Now I can import my ipad Garagaband songs and have full DAW control over them. But I'm used to Reaper (on PC) - can anyone recommend a good "quick start" guide for me? Things like zooming in and out, applying different mix parameters to different parts of the song etc. ps I did a search for logic introduction on this forum but nothing much jumped out. Thanks!

Hey Richard

Youtube is great for this. When I moved to Logic I got some good tips and tricks from watching SFLogicninja etc on there.

PS - Just to add. Much of the tips and tricks are for LogicPro 9 on YT but I believe Logic Express 9 is much the same programme.

I've got one of the David Nahmani books, and while it's OK I never found it as useful as online vids - mainly because it's targeted at a different way of making music than I prefer. It does come with a disc of project files though, which are handy to fiddle with rather than destroying your own work-in-progress!

I also used some vids from ASK Video (who I think have changed hands now) that were pretty good. Lots of info, clear delivery, arranged neatly into short sections - nice and handy.

I started with his Logic 8 book and found it incredibly useful. I'm now on 9 and bought the 9 one too!
