Curriculum

Section 1: Welcome to "Logic Pro X Tutorial: Tips & Tricks for Music Producers
03:35

This is the introduction. In this lecture I just wanted to reintroduce myself and what you will learn after completing this course. Excited to have you aboard, let's go!

Section 2: Logic X Tutorial: Important Key Commands
03:02

You will be able to use several "key commands" to help you navigate in Logic Pro X. Some of the things we will cover consist of moving the playhead left or right, several ways to zoom in or out, how to use your trackpad and or apple mouse to quickly move anywhere in the project window, and a few other great short cuts, that if practiced will help increase your overall productivity in the software. Practicing and getting use to using these "key commands" is truly the key! Anyone can learn something, but you have to apply it to your craft to actually benefit from the knowledge.

05:44

You will learn several "key commands" in Logic Pro X that will help you edit your music. Some of the commands we will cover will help you copy, paste, and split both audio and midi software tracks. You will also learn some tips on quickly saving your work, creating new audio midi tracks, opening main creation and editing windows, and several other "key commands" that will help you create a more efficient workflow while creating music.

Section 3: Logic X Tutorial: How to make your beats KNOCK!
06:21

You will learn how to download and use the Kontack 5 Sampler for Logic Pro X for FREE! This sampler is by far way easier to use and create music with than the EXS24 in my opinion and by the end of this lecture I am sure you will feel the same.

03:47

You will know how to load and sequence drums with your new Kontack 5 Sampler. We will cover my quick creation method (3 step process) using this sampler in Logic Pro X.

06:15

You will know how to instantly, with the click of a few buttons, layout a fire 808 drum pattern in Logic Pro X. We will be using the Piano Roll feature to do this and cover a few creation tips as well.

03:12

You will be able to instantly make your 808 drums stand out with one effect in Logic Pro X. We will also cover why most producers 808s and Kicks don't work together and how to fix this problem.

06:01

You will be able to record your own unique high hat drum patterns using Logic Pro X's Piano Roll Feature. 

05:00

In this second lecture on trap high hat tricks you will learn several different ways to record your own unique high hat drum patterns using Logic Pro X's Piano Roll Feature. 

06:30

You will be able to use the Piano Roll Feature to record amazing melodies in Logic Pro X. We will also cover several editing tips using the piano roll to speed up the process.

02:53

You will learn how to apply the proper delay effects to different instruments in your instrumentals to take your beats to another dimension. With this technique and your creativity you will really be able to create a unique sound when applied in moderation.

07:07

This very important lecture will demonstrate the importance of going back through your tracks after the basic ideas are in place and switching out sounds to make sure everything works perfectly together. This process is very important and can be the one thing that will separate your beats and music from those that don't implement this technique into their daily practice during the creation process in Logic Pro X.

03:55

You will learn a quick way to change the velocity of the notes in any pattern or sequence. This will help create a more polished and consistent sound and can also give your tracks more life if you take the time to properly make these adjustments.

Section 4: Logic X Tutorial: Modern Production Tips & Tricks For Beat Makers and Producers
02:20

You will learn how to unlock all of Logic Pro X's editing functions. This will help you avoid getting frustrated during the creation process (you don't want to get into the groove of creating and want to edit something real quick, later to find out the quick editing technique you are trying to use in the software is not available. Trust me this sucks and this lecture will help you to avoid that)

03:05

Project organization is one of the most important tips when it comes to producing music. You will learn how to use my organization tip to help save time while working in Logic Pro X.

07:48

You will know how to export your midi instrument files in Logic Pro several ways. This is very important because certain production tricks can only be done to an audio file.

06:01

This is part two where we will continue in building on several exporting techniques.

02:19

You will learn how to use the fade tool to create a really cool effect on any audio track called the "Tape Stop Effect" in Logic Pro X. This effect will make your tracks sound like they have a personal dj chopping up the mix. 

02:11

You will learn how to use the fade tool to create a really cool effect on any audio track called the "Speed Up Tape Effect" in Logic Pro X. This effect will make your tracks sound like they have a personal dj chopping up the mix. 

07:57

You will learn how to apply a side chain effect in Logic Pro X. The side chain effect is used to create more room for the low end frequencies of a kick drum to shine over the low end frequencies of a bass. Use this effect to make your kick drum stand out in a muddy or bass heavy mix.

10:50

You will learn how to use the vocoder to create a machine like vox effect used by the internationally know futuristic band Daft Punk in Logic Pro X. 

03:49

You will learn how to use the Forced Legato feature in Logic Pro X to polish up any sequence, pattern, melody that isn't quite playing right because the notes are different lengths. The Forced Legato feature automatically extends all the notes in your sequence to the next note, which creates a more even sound throughout your tracks.

04:46

You will learn how to hide unwanted tracks during the creative process. This helps you to create as much as you like to get the initial idea out and then cut what doesn't work with the direction of the track, while still keeping the original in tack. 

06:05

You will learn how to freeze your tracks. This technique is used for times when you have way to many effects and tracks and your computer gets a "system overload" message in Logic Pro X. Freezing the tracks temporarily converts your files into a form that make it easier for Logic Pro X to process all of the effects, instruments, etc. It's best you use this technique during the editing and mixing steps of the creation process because there are several limitations to freezing your tracks.

Section 5: Logic Pro X Tutorial: Tips & Tricks for formatting your beat into a song
02:05

You will learn how to use the muting hot key in Logic Pro X to arrange your beats into song format while still giving you flexibility to make adjustments in the future if needed.

04:45

You will learn to convert Instrument Tracks from the EXS24 Sampler into audio in Logic Pro X. This will help you to create certain cool effects to the mix.
