Using external instruments with Logic has always been a bit of a “MIDI”-stery! This course explains Logic’s External MIDI tracks, the Audio MIDI Setup and the basics of how MIDI & audio flow in and out of LPX.
If you’re like most of us, you’ve got a rack full of MIDI devices and keyboard synths that have been collecting dust from not getting enough use! This course, by Logic expert Booker Edwards, shows you how to awaken your sleeping hardware, hook them all up and get all their awesome audio into Logic and back into your productions.
In this first course of a two part series, you learn about MIDI signal flow, audio signal flow and how to harness the power of the AMS (Audio MIDI Setup). Then, Booker takes you through different workflow examples controlling different MIDI devices. With graphics, animation and live video Booker brings these workflows to life, showing them in action to help you both see and hear how they work.
So, unleash the power of Logic’s MIDI and audio processing to the outside world with this External MIDI Basics course by the AtlantaLogicTrainer.com guru: Booker Edwards.
Tremendous work. Thank you so much for the hard work and plenty of time you put on all the amazing tutorials. Gonna by them all from the App Store. Much support from Germany

I found this to be an excellent course. Everything is explained very clearly with plenty of graphics and videos to show exactly how to set things up. I have a nice old (mint) Roland SC-88ST Pro sound module that has been sitting on a shelf that I've wanted to put to good use and now I have the tools to do just that. Thanks, Booker, for a great course. I also bought the advanced course, #114, I believe and it is excellent as well...picks up where this course leaves off. Well done, thanks!!

I have been using Logic with external midi since the Atari days and have over the years absorbed the changes in midi modules and in logic itself. Recently I have started to integrate my old equipment back into my composing process and I found this course to be really refreshing. Some stuff I knew already, but I also found new approaches via Logic x which I will be able to use. Really well constructed course. I watched it all from start to finish. Clear,concise and accurate. Thank you.

Logic Pro X 113: External MIDI Basics has been a great supplemental tool for my current college course which involves using MIDI sample library instruments for creating cues. This is entry-level MIDI knowledge in comparison to how complex some MIDI programming can become. This course covered the foundations of MIDI in Logic Pro X, while including a section on using Maschine within Logic / DAW. I learned some things I didn't know before, and overall, the time I put into this should come back to me given the new information that I have to work with.
