Intro to Making Music in Logic Pro X

Learn how to create and record music using the powerful production capabilities of the digital audio workstation Logic Pro X.

Are you a musician, songwriter, or beginner producer hoping to capture and publish your music in a more professional way? Logic Pro X is one of the most versatile and affordable digital audio workstations (DAWs) for making and recording music available on the market. It's used by pro-level producers, songwriters, engineers, and composers of all types to achieve the sound they want. 

This course will teach you how to compose, record, edit, mix, and add effects to music in Logic Pro X. We will help you get comfortable navigating your way around the environment and using Logic's many features to express yourself creatively in the ways you want. No previous knowledge required. We'll get you up and running creating and editing complete tracks before you know it. 

Follow along as Martin D. Fowler (Composer for Limetown, This American Life, and more) demonstrates how to compose, create, and produce with Logic.

Who is this course for?

This course is for instrumentalists, songwriters, aspiring producers, or people with no prior musical knowledge who want to learn how to make music using Logic Pro X. Perhaps you've explored GarageBand a couple of times, or perhaps you've never played music with a computer in your life. Either way, we'll get you comfortable navigating this sophisticated software and using it to create music.

What will I learn?

You'll learn the essential tools for working with audio and MIDI in Logic and some basic compositional concepts. You'll work with tons of Logic's built-in features, synthesizers, samplers, and loops. You'll also engage in deep critical listening and analysis activities to help your workflow in Logic Pro X.

Are there any pre-reqs?

You'll need to own or purchase Logic Pro X on the App Store. Some additional gear is recommended to get the most out of the course, but if all you have is a laptop and Logic, you'll still be able to follow along. Recommended additional gear: headphones, speakers, MIDI controller, audio interface, and microphone.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

Yes, if you enroll with mentorship. If you enroll with mentorship and the course isn't what you expected, we will give you a full refund as long as you tell us before the start of the second week, in order to honor the valuable time of our mentors.

We're also happy to move you to a subsequent session, if you end up not having as much time as you expected. Once again, let us know as soon as possible!

How long does this course last?

Our courses were designed to be taken in six weeks. If you enroll with a mentor, you will go through that six week curriculum. If you enroll with a subscription on the other hand, you can choose to use the six week structure, or you can ignore it and jump around as much as you want.
