The Street Smart Guide™ to Logic 8 - PDF is a practical, common sense easy-to-use way to learn Apple's Logic 8. This training guide is ideal for those converting from another program to Logic (or thinking about it), moving up from Logic Express, or new to Logic altogether. It's written by Peter Alexander, the Music Technology & You columnist for the film industry's Film Music Weekly.

The Street Smart Guide™ to Logic 8 is designed for those doing film/TV/dramatic scoring, songwriting, teaching, and music publishing. Within all the subjects listed below, Peter also covers setting up external MIDI instruments (MIDI keyboard and computer), MIDI editing with EastWest PLAY and Vienna Instrument libraries, basics of applying effects including a master delay table, working with notation to produce lead sheets for publication, Bach chorales for school work and divisi writing, and other projects.

The Street Smart Guide™ to Logic 8 is written in a task/steps manner with virtually every task-step screen shot with four-color graphics. Text is in 12-point type to easily go back and forth onscreen between Logic 8 and The Street Smart Guide™ to Logic 8.

The Street Smart Guide™ to Logic 8 was pre-tested with composers converting to Logic 8 from Cubase, Sonar and Digital Performer, and upgrading from Logic Express.

  1. 1. Setup and MIDI Recording
  2. 2. MIDI Editing/Recording to Audio
