Screen real estate is valuable, especially when you’re working with lots of plugins or mixing on a laptop! Enter Logic Remote, the FREE app designed by Apple to work exclusively with Logic Pro X.
In this course, you learn everything from setup to mixing and even some performance techniques, to unleash the power of Logic Pro X and control it directly from your iPad.
This app is amazing. When you're mixing, Logic’s mixer appears on the iPad’s multi-touch screen. Working on a cool synth track? Simultaneously tweak that track’s Smart Controls right in Logic Remote – switch tracks, and Logic Remote follows right along. Even play awesome leads using Logic Remote’s scale constrained, custom keyboards. Need to look up something quick in the manual?

This tutorial is applicable to both Logic Pro and Logic Express. Through the course of this tutorial you will go through the process of building an actual song! You can even download the finished song files and deconstruct, analyze, or remix the final song for yourself.
Chapter 1 begins the exploration of Logic while examining how audio works, starting with the most basic waveform, a sine wave! Through the chapter, you will look closely at how amplitude and frequency combine to make sound. We even jump into Soundtrack Pro for a bit to do some deep analysis of frequency (hey, it's Logic Studio now, so why not?!).
In Chapter 2, you will explore song construction and phrasing by using Apple Loops to begin laying out your song. This chapter will demonstrate how to work with tempo and pitch while time-stretching audio files and apple loops to keep pace with your song. You'll also learn some interesting techniques for changing the look of your arrange window, including using custom colors for Tracks and Regions, as well as creating your own custom Track icons.
Chapters 3 and 4 get into the nitty-gritty of editing MIDI and Audio regions. While these chapters are designed to provide basic information you'll build upon later in the program, so advanced features (including Step Recording MIDI data and creating Folders to group regions) are covered in these chapters.
Chapter 5 takes a close look at the process of bouncing, creating MP3 files, and using key commands. Along the way, you'll learn how to choose bit depths for compressed files, and attach metadata such as band and track names that will show up when the listener opens your songs in iTunes.
In Chapter 6, you'll look closely at the process of recording in Logic. You'll learn how to set record levels, how to do basic, punch, and replace recordings, and even how to cycle record. I also cover multi-take recording and Logic's "Quick Swipe comping" ... some really great features of Logic! I had a lot of fun recording this section, particularly as I used my two star vocalists for certain parts of the tutorial (it's amazing how much vocals can add to a track!)??
Chapter 7 goes over using screensets, and layering instruments to make big, lush sounds for your mixes. In this section you'll take a good look at the Environment and explore how to manage layers and objects in the Environment, as well as how to cable objects together to route signal through different Environment objects. This "first look" at the Environment that is meant to provide a solid foundation you can use for further exploration into the Environment in tutorials such as the Logic 303: Logic TNT.
Chapter 8 begins our exploration of Mixing and DSP effects. This chapter includes tips for using Noise Gates and Logic's Strip Silence feature, and also discusses how to effectively use folders and aliases in your arrangements. You'll also be introduced to the Mixer window, and see how Mix groups and multiple output instruments like Ultrabeat can be used to full advantage in your projects. But that's not all ... the final half of this chapter concentrates on one of Logic's best features - automation! You'll learn how to use realtime and static automation, including automation curves, to create evolving ambiences in your music.
Chapter 9 is a bonus section covering mix tips. You'll see how EQs, compressors, and limiters combine to make your finished mix sparkle, every time.
David Earl is a Logic Guru. Even Apple calls on him for his incredible Logic expertise. When we need a course for something as complex as Flex Pitch & Vocals, we know exactly who to turn to…
One of the hottest features of Logic Pro X, Flex Pitch, lets you correct pitch and level issues in your recordings. Focusing on how to use Flex Pitch with vocals, this course starts with a history of pitch correction in Logic. Next, you'll learn how to identify problem areas with your vocals, and correct the singer's pitch, gain, and formant control.
