Today’s release of Logic Pro X may have take me by surprise, but not the fine people at MacProVideo or at Lynda. They both released same-day courses for Apple’s new DAW. Both are likely worth the price of admission when it comes to a program of this depth, but here are links to the free stuff:
What’s New In Logic X Pro
MacProVideo video offers up about 45-minutes of free video covering the new features. Steve Horelick does a fine job demoing and explaining some of the more impressive features such as the new iPad-based Logic Remote, Flex Pitch, MIDI FX, Drum Kit Designer, Track Stacks, Retro Synth, and more.
Logic Pro X New Features
No doubt that there will soon me a plethora of user-created tutorials all over YouTube. Found some you like? Let me know about them and I will add them to this article.
David Earl, composer/producer and Logic Studio guru, presents a rapid fire 20 minutes on cool new not-to-be-missed features in LPX. Also look for David’s in-depth work on several MacProVideo tutorials.
Jim (The Loop) has been following Apple and its products for the last 17 years. He has been a guitar player for 20 years and records music using GarageBand, Logic, Pro Tools, Cubase, Line 6, Native Instruments, IK Multimedia, ToonTrack, FXPansion and a host of other applications. Here is his walkthrough of the impressive new Logic Drummer.
Not every tutorial needs to be an extensive all-inclusive video. The Logic Cafe offers bite-size info blasts on details that are easy to miss. Their pieces are well illustrated in a thoughtful step-by-step manner. Check out this tip at www.logic-cafe.com and “never hit a wrong note again.”
Chris Agnelli of Sonic Academy is on the spot. Only a few hours after release they have several first look videos up, including this one exploring MIDI Effects and the Arpeggiator.
Dan is a filmmaker in the UK. In this video he walks us through a Final Cut Pro X workflow for mixing and editing video soundtracks utilizing the new XML import/export features of Logic Pro X. Dan usually focuses on Final Cut tutorials, but promises a more in-depth look at FCPX/LPX integration soon, and more LPX tutorials if requested. Yes, please.
UPDATE – Aug 6, 2013
The crew at Groove3 is passionate about music technology. Apple Certified Pro Eli Krantzberg has created a 5-hour comprehensive Logic Pro X course. There is about 20-minutes of preview lessons explaining FlexPitch, using Apple Loops, and exploring various inspectors. Or, just pay the $15 bucks for a month of access to over 600 hours of their training videos. Looks like a good deal to me.
