Songwriting in Logic Pro – Video Tutorials
Our friends at Lynda recently released a series of video tutorials geared toward musicians and songwriters who are starting to use Logic Pro to write, record, and mix their songs. 2 of these video tutorials are free to watch.
Lynda.com Author Todd Howard takes you through the songwriting creative process in real time, starting with an empty project based on one of Logic Pro’s prebuilt templates. He then records the initial song idea and creates a groove with Drummer. He works on the lyric and then lays down a driving bassline, an acoustic guitar, and some scratch vocals, and builds out the arrangement with layered keyboard parts. After using improvisation to create a bridge section, he adds effects for a layered and nuanced song. Next he shows techniques for editing and mixing the track, using EQ, compression, reverb, and delay. Finally, Todd shows how to bounce down the track and share it with the world.
