From the Back Cover
This brand-new Apple-certified guide, reconceived for Logic's new interface, uses all-new projects and media files to show you how to record, produce, and polish your musical creations with Apple's professional audio software. Veteran audio producer David Nahmani uses step-by-step, project-based instruction and straightforward explanations to teach everything from basic music creation to advanced production techniques.Using the book's DVD files and either Logic Pro 8 or Logic Express 8, you'll begin making music in the first lesson. From there, you'll learn to record audio and MIDI, edit sequences, master mixing techniques, and use Logic's software synthesizers, sampler, and digital signal processors to put the perfect aural polish on your audio creations. A special troubleshooting section helps you set up and optimize your studio and Logic system effectively. Whether you're looking to use your computer as a digital recording studio, create musical compositions and cutting-edge surround-sound mixes, or transfer that song in your head into living music, this comprehensive book/DVD combo will show you how.

After a months of 'playing' it was clear that the logic Pro 8 manual which comes with the package is well written, but does not offer up any projects or walkthroughs for you. This book does just that.
I thought that I was using maybe 25% of Logic's capabilities starting "raw" and self taught, but having only gone through 3 lessons so far on this book, I am surprised at what I did not know, even on basic inputs.
The DVD is structured with lessons that are logic projects and a few other artifacts to really hold your hand through every keystroke. Only on two occasions was I confused at what was being asked of me, which was partly due to my wireless keyboard not having all the keys that a full one does.
Certainly after lesson 3, you already feel you have made some significant progress and already understand editing audio, basic mixing, song construct and multi takes etc.
I will aim to update this when I am through all 12 lessons, but given this is probably about 16 hours equivalent of classroom quality training, I would not hesitate to recommend to new users like myself. The book forms part of Apple's Pro training programme and is classified 'Beginner/Intermediate'.
once finished this book, i will be moving to book two 'Logic 8 beyond the basics.
I strongly recommend this as a way into starting to learn thoroughly how to use Logic, both musically and technically.
It isn't a learning companion to a classroom, it IS your classroom. This book will teach you how to use pretty much all the tools in Logic Pro 8 (and express), but the more advanced editing stuff is in the companion book 'Beyond the Basics' but Beyond the Basics won't help you until you're already well versed in everything from this book and using it to practice on your own music, or whatever you're planning on using it for.
Don't waste time and money on very expensive so called 'Logic 101 music production courses', they teach you the same stuff.
This is apple certified; it will get you through the apple logic 101 exam if that's what you want.
The programme is so big and complicated you would be lost without this book.
A must buy for any beginner, or anyone who wants to learn how to properly use all the features in Logic Pro and Express.
