Product Description


"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

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!! The answer to my prayers! 5 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent for anyone either wanting the basics of using Logic Pro, or for the more advanced user. There is a wealth of advice, tips and images to make the process of using Logic (which can be daunting) MUCH clearer and easier, as well as taking you right up to the point of mastering to a professional standard. I feel I will be dipping into this book for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only limitation is your imagination 12 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was fed up with Cubase and windows crashing that I migrated to a Mac and wanted the right software that someone who is not 'in the music business' could use easily without fear of yet more crashes and freezes. After using Garageband I realised that perhaps Logic Pro was the way to go. About the time I made up my mind to buy Logic Pro, Apple in their wisdom, decided to reduce the price for the download. Was this a sign, I asked myself?

Logic pro is not difficult to use, but some elements can be a bit more complex than I would like. Along comes Logic Pro 9 : Audio & Music Production to show the way. What a marvellous book this is. Starting at the beginning and taking your time, it takes you through the setting up process and takes you step by step into the recording and mixing procedures in such a way as to make you proficient in a very short time. Don't get me wrong, Logic pro isn't some neat little music production package for beginners, it is HUGE. In fact the best compliment I could give to this software is to simply say, the only restrictions come from your own imagination. The book leads you into how to use the software, but it is your imagination that makes your music a masterpiece.

The book itself is easy to read, takes you through all the 'logical' steps in order to record, mix, edit and master your music.

Logic Pro 9: Audio and Music Production, A Comprehensive Guide. A Critical Review.

LOGIC PRO 9: AUDIO AND MUSIC PRODUCTION, A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE, is a just that: an exhaustive, 400-page, subject-based explanation of one of the leading audio and music production softwares available. This is an upgrade from a guide produced by the same authors for Logic Pro 8.

** What are your needs? Audio (voice recording)? Music production? Both?
*** To buy or not to buy?
**** Conclusion

* The book is broken down into 11 chapters and multiple subchapters that revolve around basically a few chapters that focus on:

+ The history of the program (from eMagic to Apple);
+ An overview of the program, tools, add on's & extensions;
+ Hardware (computer and peripherals)--creating a DAW or Digital Audio Workstation;
+ Recording voice ("audio");
+ Recording music.

+ Plus there's a reference to a dedicated website, an addendum to the written material.

** I've worked in the music industry for several years in my late teens and early 20's, this was long before audio production went digital and have only kept an incremental interest in it as my production company demands that I have significantly more than a fundamental understanding of how to use audio (more specifically) than actual music production.

Having said that, one of my first stops in considering what software should be at the top of my list, I sent audio engineer par excellent, Jay Rose Producing Great Sound for Film and Video (DV Expert Series), and
