"One thing that set's this book aside from the many others on offer is the layout. Cousins and Hepworth-Sawyer have taken a process-driven approach with each section loosely following the structure and order of the writing, production and mastering of a track.. Its in the closing chapters that things get especially interesting, with useful details on how to set up Logic's Environment. As a bonus there's an accompanying website with useful links and nearly 190MB of free loops. Well laid-out and packing plenty of tips and tricks for beginner and intermediate Logic users. 8 of 10 stars."--MusicTech Magazine
"Logic Pro 9 Audio and Music Production is a complete tutorial that will update existing users of the man new features, additional content (samples) and instruments now integrated into this program.. Essentially a guided tour with many full-color screen shots that (if you want) hold your hand through learning Logic or teach you new tricks if you're an old hand."--Music Connection
