Apple's GarageBand is an amazing tool for beginners, but sooner or later, serious music makers will think of making the jump to Logic Pro. If that’s your case, this course is specifically made for you!
Preinstalled on every Mac, GarageBand is one of the most popular music creation apps in the world. Maybe you’ve been using it for a while now, and you’re starting to run up against its limitations. Or you may be wondering if jumping over to its bigger brother, Logic Pro, would be worth the price of admission. Or maybe you just switched over to Logic, but you find the learning curving a bit too steep. No matter where you're coming from, this course by Logic Certified Trainer Booker Edwards, is here to show you what benefits you get by upgrading to Logic, and how you can make a smooth transition from the entry-level GarageBand to the pro-level Logic Pro!
Booker starts the course by explaining how to easily import your GarageBand projects into Logic Pro, and how Logic’s interface is both different and similar to GarageBand’s. Next, he dives into the powerful pro features Logic has to offer. He explores the advantages you get from using Logic’s synths and effects, the flexible ways you can edit your drum performances, the fully-featured mixer, MIDI FX, and more.
You also discover how Logic’s Flexible Time and Pitch gives you the ability to quantize and repitch your audio in ways impossible in GarageBand, and how much editing power you get with Logic’s arsenal of flexible tools. You even learn how to use Logic’s advanced Automation features, and how Logic gives you everything you need to create a professional mix.
As a bonus, the course closes by switching everything in reverse gear by explaining how to take a Logic Pro project back to GarageBand for iOS, and why you would want to do such a thing. So watch this course by Certified Logic Pro trainer, Booker Edwards, and learn how to make a smooth transition out of the garage into the pro universe of Logic!
I have actually never used GarageBand but I will soon have to port a composition into Logic. It was good to see how easy the process is. If you use GarageBand moving to Logic is not a big deal as they work in a similar way & you can learn the new features as you need them or as you go.
