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? Point to it with your mouse and read all about it on the Logic Remote Smart Help screen.

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.
How much would you pay to take a Master Class with a Logic pro like Steve H? It typically costs a few hundred dollars for this type of education - but you can have it now for $9.99 ... and there's no need to travel to a university, because you can watch this Master Class on your very own computer!
In this advanced Logic Pro Master Class by Steve H you'll learn some incredible skills for working with beats and other recorded audio files, including Beat Mapping, Fixing & Quantizing recorded audio, Automatic Beat Replacement, adding Swing and Groove to audio recordings, Using Markers, and (best of all?) how to use the Transform Window!
This is an incredibly detailed and in-depth tutorial on some seriously under-utilized features of Logic. But once you see this tutorial, you'll be using these features all the time to speed-up and enhance your music production workflow.

Learn the art of Drum & Bass production, using Logic! This tutorial is produced by D&B pioneer, Nigel Broad.
In this new tutorial by veteran Drum & Bass producer Nigel Broad, you'll learn how a top selling composer/producer makes extraordinary dance music using Logic. Nigel is well known as one of the original innovators in the D&B scene. Having grown up in England and as executive producer and head of A&R for legendary D&B label Contagious Records, Nigel pioneered many of the techniques that give this pulsating music its legendary sound. And speaking of Contagious, this tutorial is sooo contagious that I not only watched it several times in a row I had to run to my studio to try out some of Nigel’s awesome Logic tricks!
Drum and bass music has evolved into many different sub-genres over the years and Nigel's personal style has evolved too. In this tutorial, Confessions of a Drum and Bass Producer, he showcases a much more contemporary D&B sound; It’s more sophisticated, yet still contains essential elements of his early British dance chart hits.
However there’s more to this tutorial besides its amazing content and that’s the utterly enjoyable experience of listening to Nigel who, like a friend, humorously reveals his treasure trove of production secrets.
So welcome Nigel Broad to our NonLinear Educating family of trainers and experience this awesome 3-Hour tutorial showing the unique process of creating a Drum & Bass production in Logic.

The app's functions include a delay calculator, a chord reference, an equalization guide, a frequency-to-note translator, and a harmonic mixing wheel. All of Producer Tools' features are optimized for working in digital audio workstations like Ableton Live, FL Studio, and Logic: all the notes in the chord reference are MIDI-friendly sharps, for example, and the delay calculator gives you both milliseconds and Hertz -- perfect for synchronizing LFOs.
Producer Tools is designed to help speed up the production process, whether you're an experienced electronic music producer or you're just starting out. Download it and boost your workflow to the next level.
