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.

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.

HASH(0xa4a4415c) out of 5 stars One word: Wow! March 31 2010
By J. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
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".

HASH(0xa4a443a8) out of 5 stars Caution - NO DVD content link with Kindle version Jan. 2 2011
By Terry R Bacon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I want to warn users of Logic 9 who want to purchase the Kindle version of this book that Amazon.com does not provide a link to download the extra materials/projects/media that is supposed to accompany this book.

Other online vendors, i.e. Peachpit.com, 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 Amazon.com 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.

HASH(0xa4a4436c) out of 5 stars Great info Feb. 15 2011
By Baltofloridad - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa4a44660) out of 5 stars This book should be a requirement of any advanced course teaching Logic Jan. 11 2013
By TonyB - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa4a446c0) out of 5 stars excellent advanced course... Oct. 15 2011
By Philanthropic Pundit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you have Logic Pro 9 and want to improve on the way you do things, or just make it work the way you want it to, this book is for you. As a new user to Logic Pro 9, I found that I had more questions left unanswered after the initial course. This book fills the gap.

Comprehensive, easy to follow, colour pictures and screen shots abound. This really takes you deeper into how the Logic Pro 9 interface works and shows you how to get the very best out of it.

The DVD tutorials are also informative.
