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 also receive one-on-one support from a Soundfly Mentor who will help guide your learning and give you feedback so you can accomplish exactly what you're hoping to with Logic. 

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 sign up 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. The reason that the second week of the course is a cut-off for our guarantee is simply because if we go past that deadline, our mentors will have likely put in a lot of time, energy, and effort already. 

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! 

What do I get as a Mainstage student? 

The Mainstage experience is built on our science-backed active learning model, which helps you learn more efficiently and effectively than typical online courses. The key difference is our mentorship approach — one-on-one coaching with a trained Soundfly Mentor who has extensive experience in the subject. When you sign up, we'll pair you with an expert who will tailor the course to your experience level, offer detailed weekly feedback on your work, answer any questions you have, help you blow past obstacles, and keep you on track to accomplish your musical goals.

You'll also get unlimited, lifetime access to all the course content — including in-depth lessons, activities, quizzes, video tutorials, and downloadable resources — so you can review anytime and keep your skills sharp.

As an extra perk, you'll get lifetime access to our tight-knit musician community group on Slack, where you'll find peer-to-peer feedback and support, lots of inspiration, and fun, musical conversations with fellow Soundfly students, mentors, and staff.

What does it mean that the course starts on a specific date?

As soon as you purchase a course, you can begin exploring the course material immediately. On the start date, the session begins, which means you'll begin a guided experience that includes weekly activities, feedback from a Soundfly Mentor, and much more. This is intended to help you stay accountable and get the feedback you need to succeed. 

Can I take this course without a Soundfly Mentor?

We believe strongly that accountability, feedback, and support are critical to active learning — where you learn by putting your knowledge into practice and engaging thoughtfully with what you're learning. And we think that active learning is a more effective path to learning a new skill than passive learning — where you're simply watching videos and reading text.

However, if you don't need the mentorship component of our course, whether it's because you're working with a private instructor, or don't have the time, or maybe you are a private instructor and want to use the course content with a student, you can buy unlimited access to the course content for $129.80. Please email [email protected] for a code to purchase the course content at the discounted rate.

Will there be future sessions of the course?

Yes! Check back shortly for firm dates, or sign up for a Soundfly account to receive email updates about course dates and new course launches.
