Excellent training series. Book goes through everything in detail. Unfortunately this software is now outdated. But most of the concepts prepare you well for any level of this software.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easier than the Manual! May 25 2008
By Eddie Wannabee - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I received Logic Pro 8 I knew I was in trouble. The literature included with the program was simply put, a little overwhelming. Being a beginner in all sense of the word, barely new to Garage Band as well, I knew I would require outside assistance and I found it in Apple Pro Training Series: Logic Pro 8 and Logic Express 8 (Apple Pro Training). Even though it says it also applies to Logic Express is just what the doctor ordered for a dummy of my category. The manual is an expanded and difficult reading while this book simplifies the approach to where there is hope for my learning style. I have been able to progress dramatically and that in a nutshell is why I write this review. With a much more understandable approach to the subject is money well spent. And what a program it is! Needless to say I Love my Apple computer and the possibilities it has offer me creatively specially musically. I give it a 4 Star for I am still in an upward learning curve and still on the lookout for any additional material that might make a music producer out of me yet. It probably deserves a 4.5 which in my opinion is a more precise way to rate a product. From 4 to 5 it's just too much of a leap and 5, of course, being perfection is only awarded to the rare and few. Thank you for reading and great luck with all the wonderful music this book will certainly allow users to make in their moments of inspiration. Long Live America and it's awesome citizens!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough dissection of Logic Pro for beginners April 3 2009
By CBA713 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Detailed, concise, and fun, Nahmani takes you through the basics of Logic Pro in 10 basic chapters. The pre-constructed projects included with the tutorial disc are built intelligently, highlighting the major points of each lesson. This book makes you feel like a pro, even if it does not cover some of the more advanced techniques (those are covered in the book's sequel). The only minor issue I had was that some of the keyboard shortcuts must be customized so they fit those suggested in the book (this is a quick fix with Option-K, bringing up the shortcut customization window)... However, I do not fault the author for this issue, as there are different layouts for desktops and notebooks. I am working with Logic 8.0.2, so some of the features referenced during the lessons in the book have changed slightly, but not in a way that will interrupt the flow of your education. If you have a basic knowledge of non-computer based recording and want to make the step towards it, buy this book without hesitation. For further info, go to [...] where you can discuss Logic with David Nahmani.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for New Logic Users Feb. 21 2008
By David Lormor - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a music composition student who has just started to enter the world of recording and editing, although I had some previous experience with DP5. I just made the transition to Mac and got an amazing deal on Logic Studio ($149!!) through my school, so I decided to give it a shot. As soon as I opened it up though, I was totally lost and overwhelmed. I got this book because it was certified by Apple, and figured David must know what he's talking about. Well, he definitely does, and on top of that he does a great job of breaking things down into easy sessions that introduce a single concept at a time. I would recommend doing each lesson and then experimenting with the new techniques you learn for a while to make them "stick" before moving on to the next lesson. In short, if you've opened up Logic and feel totally intimidated by its wealth of features, GET THIS BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good - You need this book to use Logic fully Sept. 27 2008
By D. Cliff - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been messing with computer recording for a few years now and just got a Mac and Logic. I used Cakewalk programs and FL Studio prior to getting Logic, but when I tried to use Logic without the book I was pretty lost. The book takes you through the steps to use all the main features of Logic and also explains basic recording techniques that I was not familiar with, but are the difference between an amatuer recording and a pro version. The section on mixing was very helpful and especially useful with songs on the DVD. I learned a lot. I only wish that along with the DVD came video showing you how to use the program. Reading each step and following along with the program takes a while, but really its the only way to learn since you have to push the buttons to hear what happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of all worlds! Jan. 15 2008
By B. J. Shulman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not only the best book on the subject, it should also be used as an example for "How to Write a How-to Book." What is so valuable about Mr. Nahmani's approach is that it's not JUST a "how-to" book; it provides concrete musical examples of when & why to use certain features, putting Logic's immense capabilities in context. You think you're just going to learn a computer application & you end up learning music production. The author gives the keyboard shortcuts for every process, greatly helping to streamline your workflow. It's a real hands-on experience, not just a manual.
