Introduction to Logic Pro X Professional Music Production

Duration: 3 Days

Course Information

Logic Pro X is the complete professional recording studio for the Mac that gives musicians everything they need to go from first note to final master. This three-day hands-on course introduces students to Logic Pro’s primary features and basic user interface. Students learn how to generate a customised audio and MIDI configuration that will seamlessly integrate with their own personal production studio. Students also create their own song using Logic Pro’s comprehensive array of software instruments, Apple Loops, and DSP effects. In-depth lessons cover MIDI and audio recording, streamlined editing and arrangement techniques, user-defined key commands, automation, using external MIDI controllers, mixing, and creating final output. For Students Enrolled in a Virtual Class: Each student will need to setup two (2) computers in order to take the class virtually. The first can be a PC, tablet or Mac. The second computer must be a Mac and you will need the software (and version) being taught in the course already installed on your computer. This setup will allow virtual students to view the presentation on one computer and do support exercises on the other one.


Upon completion of the Logic Pro X course, students will be able to:; Understanding Workflow Techniques; Recording and Editing Audio and MIDI Using Software Instruments; Working with Audio Effects; Mixing and Automation; Manipulating Pitch and Time


This class is designed for students who want to learn music production and composition using Logic Pro and who prefer hands-on and interactive instruction to best explore its functionality.


A basic knowledge of Mac OS X and a basic knowledge of audio terminology is recommended

A comprehensive set of reference notes covering course topics, follow-up telephone support and, for training on Transmedia premises, lunch and refreshments.
