Introduction

Introduction

Apple Computer’s digital audio sequencer, Logic, has a long and storied history. From its humble beginnings as a MIDI-only application called Notator Logic, to its ascendance to the heights of professional respect as Logic Audio on the Macintosh and Windows platform, to its current incarnation as Logic Express and Logic Pro, Logic has been one of the most dynamic and exciting programs in the rise of computer music. Countless songs, albums, and film soundtracks have been written and/or recorded using Logic, and the program just keeps getting better!

In many ways, Logic 7 is the most profound update to Logic in many years. It’s the first version developed entirely since Apple Computer bought Emagic, Logic’s producers, and it has much of the cutting edge look and feel of Apple Computer’s Professional Application Suite. In a way, you can think of Logic 7 as the first version of the “new, improved Logic.” Same amazing power and flexibility, but now with more “Apple Computer” style elegance. By the time you finish this book, you will hopefully agree!

Who Should Read This Book?

This book is for anyone who wants to learn how to use Logic. If you are upgrading from GarageBand to Logic Express, upgrading from Logic Express to Logic Pro, or are completely new to digital audio sequencing, this book will help you understand how Logic works. This book doesn’t presuppose you have any knowledge of music theory or digital audio conventions. But if you do have knowledge of music theory or digital audio software, you will find it even easier to follow the exercises in this book. Logic has a reputation for being very complicated, but, as you will discover as you read this book, once you understand how Logic does things, it’s simple...and you’ll never look back!
