If you want to go beyond the basics of creating and producing music with Logic Pro, this Apple-certified guide is for you. Whether you’re a composer, producer, songwriter, engineer, studio programmer, or simply a music-lover who wants to create or produce professional-quality music in your Logic-based studio, you’ll find the self-paced, step-by-step instruction you need to begin creating your audio master works immediately.

As a professional musician, educator, and a former employee of both Emagic and Apple, author David Dvorin knows Logic like no one else. Here, he uses project-based tutorials to guide you through real-world production tasks, revealing Logic’s secrets along the way. In short order you’ll be scoring and composing, creating your own sounds with Logic’s software instruments, and employing advanced mixing, editing, and production techniques. A companion DVD includes the lesson and media files needed to complete the book’s exercises, plus free trial Logic plug-ins from leading manufacturers.

Note to customer: Logic Pro 9 runs on Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later.

This book cleared up a lot of what I didn't know about Logic Pro 9. I would definitely recommend it to anyone starting out with this program. Easy to follow and the exercises are a great way to actually have a hands on experience with Logic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book Dec 15 2011
By Joe
I am a musician/songwriter and knew absolutely zip about recording. I found this book to be thorough in it's explanations and easy to follow. In just a couple of hours with this book I was ready to tackle the daunting task of recording myself. I found that every minute spent with this book yielded great returns as far as productivity and creativity go. My only regret is that I don't have more time to spend with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word: Wow! March 31 2010
By J. Lockridge - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As I've written here before, I'll qualify my review by saying I've used Logic in various forms all the way back to the C-Lab days in the early 90's in some form or the other. Since Apple has purchased Logic from Emagic, it has become a lesson in efficiency and design. Never the simple program, Logic has layers and layers of functionality that require years to master.

Until now.

With this one book, the author fills the void that has heretofore been missing for us Logic users wanting to go "the extra mile" with our productions and knowledge.

I purchase and evaluate every single book on Logic, as I teach several courses on recording, mixing, mastering, and production, using various methods. My main program is Logic, even though I had gone through a brief Pro Tools phase (because everyone else was doing it---not a "mistake", but I feel the name "Pro Tools" misleads too many into thinking that it is the "best"---their marketing certainly is).

Succinctly, just let me say if you're a Logic user, you need this book. No matter how advanced: you need this book. If you're a beginner, go through the first volume, then get this book.

Kudos to the authors, and Kudos to Apple for evolving and maintaining such a fantastic and downright magical piece of software. This book helps to unlock "the next layer".

5.0 out of 5 stars Caution - NO DVD content link with Kindle version Jan. 2 2011
By Terry R Bacon - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I want to warn users of Logic 9 who want to purchase the Kindle version of this book that does not provide a link to download the extra materials/projects/media that is supposed to accompany this book.

Other online vendors, i.e., do provide a link that is provided by the author/publisher so that the DVD content can be downloaded to your computer. Without this extra content - you're only getting part of what you pay for.

I have personally been trying to get this remedied... but so far has not provided me with a link to this material.

I would say that from browsing the Kindle version of the book content that this would be an excellent book... but at this time it should be purchased as an electronic book from other vendors.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book should be a requirement of any advanced course teaching Logic Jan. 11 2013
By TonyB - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I simply love this book. I went through its predecessor first and as a long time user of Logic, went through it quickly. This book however goes into areas that I haven't used before. I was particularly impressed with the chapter devoted to session management and backup procedures as this is something never mentioned. The chapters are easy to follow, the instructions are at the perfect level for the reader, the techniques covered are broad and the examples are well thought out. This book should be required reading for anyone genuinely interested in improving their skills in Logic to a pro level. I can only hope they would release a book for a possible version 10 of Logic.

Note: I bought the kindle version of the book, it is possible to get the example files as listed. You don't need the physical book and the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great info Feb. 15 2011
By Baltofloridad - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is so informative that it makes me realize that I ALWAYS need to read a manual first. Actually if all manuals were laid out as good as this one, I'd probably be a smarter person by now!!! But seriously I can't say enough about the progress I've made since purchasing this book. I already use Logic Pro 9 to record but this really puts me in the game. Thanks a million for helping us all.
