After starting as an underground urban movement in the 70s, Hip Hop has become a well-established art form divided into different subgenres. In this course, trainer and producer Booker Edwards focuses on Boom Bap, revealing how to create a beat in the genre using Logic Pro. From drum programming and quantizing through sample slicing and sequencing, this course will show you everything you need to start making beats with Logic Pro...
Booker starts the course by looking at the origin of Boom Bap and defining its main characteristics. He shows you how to record a drum beat using Drum Machine Designer, and how to quantize it to give it a human feel. Using samples from the Reading Rainbow Theme by Steve H., Booker demonstrates how to stretch, slice up and tweak the audio with Logic's Quick Sampler. Continuing with the course, you also learn to manage the assets of your Logic project, how to create a bass line, how to work with Apple Loops, how to use Arrangement Markers and a lot more...
So join Booker Edwards in this Hip Hop Beatmaking part 1 course, and start making your own beats with Apple's Logic Pro!
Takes notes because there is a lot of good information. I would suggest watching this video first and then watching the audio editing course and then then mixing followed up by the mastering, then go to the EQ' and compressor videos then return to the mixing and mastering. Great tutorials overall.

A very enjoyable course. Easy to follow along because the explanations are so clear. It really gives you a global perspective on creating almost entirely in the Logic box, as it's pretty much just Logic tools used throughout. A lot of ground is covered in a short span of time - DMD, Quick Sampler, using the Library, saving a patch, using Apple Loops in conjunction with the Region Inspector, and the power of Arrangement Markers. And of course you get to see the process of putting a basic track together too, which includes the use of an array of powerful shortcuts for speeding up your workflow. Looking forward to Part 2 :-)
