English First of all what is logic first you must know that it's a piece of software that allows you to produce or record or write music but it's much more than that logic probe is a fully featured door which stands for digital audio workstation DAWE And this is the time for software that is designed for working with any form of audio. It's a workstation for digital audio. So whenever you hear someone refer to a door like Pro-Tools is a really popular option that's what they're referring to it just means software that is built specifically for working with audio. So within logic we can also write music. It's not just for recording audio. It's for writing music using MIDI and software instruments synthesizers you can create virtual dramas virtual drum tracks and you can produce a whole track without ever having to record anything. It's also for recording audio to the channel so you could record a four live band with multiple microphones for example. After that you can edit the audio or music move around change the arrangement fine tune it move parts around so you could say for example someone hit a Caetano early you could move that back and stretch it using the Flexo and that's all part of editing and then after that we mix that music and we balance all the instruments with each other and we apply effects like EQM compression. So all of that is done within logic. You go from the absolute beginning which could be composition and writing music all the way through to the final stereo Wyvil. MP 3 that you burn to a desk or shower your friends on soundcloud YouTube etc. so you can also do mastering and advanced features in logic and go through the whole process without ever leaving logic. So really great piece of software and then next lesson I'm going to tell you a bit more about why you should be using logic and why it's such a great piece of software.
