Module 1 - Getting Started In Logic With A Beat

After a quick check of the settings we'll dive right in and start bringing in our first sounds. This gives us the first opportunity to explore Logic's interface which allow you to bring media into your project, arrange it and manipulate it using the various tools available to you. You're going to make a complete beat using various methods like using the powerful sampler track for triggering drums and using straight audio samples that you will chop up and edit to make your own unique beats. A bit later on you will start to use and understand basic effects like EQ, compression, delay & reverb.

 

The first 5 lessons are completely free below so you can see just how easy it's going to be.

Module 2 - Creating A Melody In Logic

So we have a basic beat but we need to add the soul of our track; the melody. The melody of the track is super important as it will spike a listener's interest, and if done right it will keep them pulled in to your music all the way through. You'll learn how to use the in-built sampler effectively to create this melody. We also explore and experiment with basic music theory to create a simple chord progression, and with a bit of guidance you learn to make this more interesting by using simple and easy to repeat techniques such as voicing.

You can see the beginning of this process below. The first 5 lessons of this course are free to watch.

Module 3 - Stock Plugins & Instruments

Logic is a complete Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and comes with many of its own powerful instruments and plugins. To develop your skills, you will use a combination of Logic's in-built sampler and some audio editing techniques to manipulate a standard drum loop and customise that beat so it fits with your track. On a similar note, you will start to learn the basics of synthesis using Logic's Retro Synth VST by making your own bass-line and pad. You will also use compression, side chain compression, EQ, filters, saturation, reverb, delay and many more plugins. More importantly you will learn how, why and when you should use these plugins in your own tracks to get maximum impact.

Module 4 - Song Structure & Automation

So you have all these great parts for your track, now it is time to arrange them into a structure that tells a great story. You're going to become familiar with what a good arrangement is and why the energy levels of each section are so important. You will be able to choose the right elements for each section and be able to make each section stand out. A great story/song has ups and downs, it has tension and release and it generates an emotional connection with the listener. You will not only learn to use the tools in Logic, but also gain knowledge on how to use the elements of your track, SFX sounds, and the automation of instrument and plugin parameters to achieve the desired effect.

Module 5 - Recording In Logic

Recording in Logic can be a fun, creative and really rewarding experience. It can also be incredibly frustrating if you don't know what to do and how to setup for it. In this module you will learn how to setup to record both direct input (DI) for guitar and microphone for the singer. Things like how far from the mic should the singer be, what sort of sound isolation you should use, is all covered. Once we have dealt with external setup we'll dive into Logic to make sure we are using the correct recording options so we are ready to record. We then take all our recorded audio (provided) and we 'comp' together one great take out of the different performances we get to make one exceptional performance, using timing and pitch correction to make it flawless.

Module 6 - Mixing & Mastering In Logic

So this is the final stage and where it all comes together. Mixing can be one of the most difficult things to get right when you are new to making music. Here you will learn how to approach it and how to avoid common mistakes that other producers make. The key to a good mix is balance, but you need to understand what that means and how to achieve it. You're going to mix and master the track you make with all the tools available in Logic. Volume mixing is the start and then using EQ and compression to clean and tighten. You'll use more advanced processes to create a balanced mix with clear separation between the elements. You'll also learn about basic mastering techniques.
