Steve H and Igor are at it again: Flex Editing! Logic Pro’s new Flex Editing capabilities bring the world of “elastic audio” to the world’s most powerful DAW. In this entertaining and informative tutorial Steve H and his faithful assistant take you on a flex editing adventure.
Steve shows you the flex tools, defines the parameters and then, with tracks provided by some of his musician friends, he unleashes the power and creativity of flexible audio as he demonstrates the astounding capabilities of Flex Editing in Logic Pro.
You’ll learn how to non-destructively time-stretch and compress audio. You’ll master one-click quantizing of multi-track drums. You’ll see the new snap-to-transient features where audio transients on one track get aligned to transients on another.
And that’s not all: true to Steve H’s adventurous self, he’ll show you how to create beautifully lush, 10-minute soundscapes from a cute little 10-second Apple Loop. Oh, and by the way, be sure not to miss his assistant Igor going “flex-wild” on an awesome piano track performed by the great Jordan Rudess, keyboardist extraordinaire of the band Dream Theater!
So if you like Steve H’s tutorials, and if you’re ready to “stretch” your imagination this tutorial is for you.
Big fan of Steve H's videos. Always friendly, informative, and with a little humor. Makes learning easy. Thanks!

Great course on Flex Time editing by Steve H, he covers all the typical applications and a couple of more esoteric ones of this powerful tool.
Apart from a few aesthetically differences, Flex Time works exactly the same in Logic Pro X as it did in Logic Pro 9.

Awesome in every way possible. I feel like I am in tune with flex editing as well as creating with flex editing

Amazing course. There's a lot more to flex control than I first realised and although this tutorial will appeal more to live music lovers I found many of the tricks work just as well with any material

While I'm still old school cut and fade type editing...flex editing is something I am will to practice thanks to the examples and the videos in this course.

The Flex Time Editing course is great in explaining the ins and outs of each flex time feature. Such a powerful tool in Logic with a powerful course to follow it!

Another great Logic 9 tutorial! Had a lot of favorites in this one! It definitely shows how Logic's flex mode can compete against Pro Tools Beat Detective and in some applications is even more useful.

A complex tool made clear and simple in a step-by-step process and really well structured to allow me to take it in. Thanks! Some of the jokes are way too cheesy though!

Flex editing really sets Logic Pro apart from the other DAWs out there. It's simply amazing to stretch or compress an audio sample in so many ways and still have it sound so natural. Steve H rocks!
