Logic Pro X is one of the premiere audio processing applications and sequencers. In this class we will learn how to get started quickly using this powerful application.
For years I've been teaching Music Production in the college classroom. These classes I'm making for Udemy use the same syllabus I've used in my college classes for years, at a fraction of the cost. I believe anyone can learn Music Production - and cost shouldn't be a barrier.
In this class we will focus on the newest Logic Pro X software. Some people like to think of this as "Garage Band Pro", and it many ways it is. But there is a lot more to it than that. Logic Pro X is a full-featured program, but it isn't without it's limitations. I'll walk you though what those are, some ways you can deal with them, and how to use the program to produce and/or record your music.
