This course is designed for both GarageBand and Logic Pro users. That's because, when writing a song, it's important to get your inspirations recorded fast! GarageBand is the perfect creative workspace to create a song. Its intuitive design lets you easily get your song ideas down with just a few taps on the iPad or clicks on your MacBook. In fact, many big-time producers start their songwriting process right in GarageBand for iPad, move it up to GarageBand for Mac to add more ideas and complete the production in GarageBand's big brother: Logic Pro X!

This course explains every part of the musical journey as you see expert trainer Matt Vanacoro build a tune right before your eyes. He tracks his initial inspirations on the iPad. It's here that you learn how GB for iPad works and how you can use its intuitive interface and Smart Instruments to turn your ideas into tracks.

Next, you see how to bump-up your tune to GarageBand for Mac. This is where you can expand on your original ideas by rearranging sections, adding even more tracks and using tools like Drummer to build a solid foundation for your production.

The final section in this course reveals the power of finishing your project in Apple's Logic Pro. Logic Pro X is designed with GarageBand users in mind. Matt explains how to make the transition easy, comfortable and productive. He explains the power of Logic Pro's amazing features and processing power to bring your tune to a completely different level!
