Learning 'Logic'

Post by justinezzi » Thu Jan 17, 2019 2:28 pm

Taxi members, My wife bought me a Mac Book Pro and I'm trying to learn Logic. I'm in the south bay, (Los Angeles) looking for a tutor. I'm a bit of a Luddite, (on the computer), but I'm a professional musician and I can pay $. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

There is a lot of good info on YouTube, but you have to wade through a lot of rubbish too. If you have the funds I'd visit www.pointblanklondon.com - They have an LA college and you can even do the course online. Before that I suggest checking out Lynda.com (part of LinkedIn) again there is a cost but not much (Cost me £79 per year). The Point Blank course is more like $2000 (for the on-site course) but is a very quick way to get up to speed. Their tutors are all music pro producers. I think their online course is about $800 but I went to the school in London in 2014.

Hope this helps.

I hope you music tells a story.

Another resource is Groove 3. It has training videos for everything from DAWS to sound to video, to utility programs. You can dowload individual programs or sign up for a yearly membership and have access to all content. I find it very intuitive.

I've been using Logic for many years and I still learn new things almost every week. I think like with everything you want to learn you need to pace yourself. One of the most useful things to learn in Logic as soon as possible IMO are keyboard shortcuts. You will find the factory settings list online and it will make your life so much easier. Logic can be used in so many ways and when I first got it many years ago (I was not married back then and had to buy it myself... :? ) I just 'played' around with it and tried everything out, which in Logic is so much fun (e.g. the Apple Loops, the Virtual Instruments etc.). And after that I just looked up on Youtube whatever I wanted to learn next or understand better. The questions will come to you naturally (e.g. how do I bounce a Logic Drummer track to multiple files to mix them individually etc.). As mentioned before it takes time as it is a complex program but a lot of fun. I hope this is useful. Please reach out to me in case you have got questions. I am not a certified trainer but I know Logic pretty well.
Cheers,
Matt

Hey Justin

I've got a small but well equipped studio at home - in Melbourne Australia. But I guess Skype and other online technologies make the distances much shorter.

I've been thinking about offering services to people setting up home studios, so I noticed your note. I am also - like one of the other responders - always learning something new about Logic, but I'd think I was pretty across lots of Logic management, recording techniques, midi techniques, audio techniques.

I also agree with the responder that there's plenty of YouTube clips that can teach you what you want to know, but if you're new to it, there's nothing like a conversation.

In terms of cost, I'd be happy to work on a "pay if you find it useful" arrangement - that is, if you're interested in a conversation to get some things straight, and you found it valuable, you pay before the next session.

If you're interested, contact me via groom.studio@gmail.com. If you want to hear some of my stuff, check out https://soundcloud.com/five_empires
