“Logic Pro X – The Details” – The 10.1 Edition


After the first book “Logic Pro X – How it Works” that was available as the revised 10.1 Edition, now “Logic Pro X – The Details” is also updated with the changes and the new features of Logic Pro X version 10.1. The manual has 50 more pages, which bring it to a total of 711 pages in full letter size.

Why buy an outdated Logic Pro book that doesn’t match the current version, or doesn’t explain the new features and functionality, when there are current ones available from the “Graphically Enhanced Manuals” series?


Logic Pro X – The Details (10.1 Revision)

Customers who bought the PDF file have already received an email with the free download link. This is part of my unique free update policy, which is extremely important with the rapid development cycle of software applications nowadays. The printed book, available on Amazon, is also the current 10.1 revised edition. With the print-on-demand advantage, there is no need to sell outdated book copies that are still sitting in a warehouse. The iBooks version will be available sometimes in April.


The Automation chapter in this book is completely rewritten due to the substantial changes and additions in Logic Pro X 10.1 regarding Automation. If you haven’t noticed yet, Logic Pro X turned it up a notch when it comes to Automation. I will explain those new features like Track Automation vs. Region Automation vs. MIDI Draw, or the new Trim, Relative, and Absolute features. My unique graphics will help to understand the functionality of those sometimes complex workflows.

Here are just three of the many new diagrams that I use to demonstrate the new features and functionality in Automation. And there is much, much more, with detailed explanations of the new VCA Groups and the new workflows when scoring to picture.




The Perfect Combo

Both manuals “Logic Pro X – How it Works” and “Logic Pro X – The Details” are the perfect combo to learn and master Logic Pro X. On a total of 1,100 pages you will learn virtually everything there is to know about Logic Pro X 10.1, based on the latest version of Logic Pro. Not just a list of features and functions or an example of one Project. You will finally learn and understand how things work with the help of unique diagrams and illustrations that give you the needed aha effect, no matter if you are a beginner, intermediate or, even an advanced Logic user.


The Visual Approach

My unique concept of explaining features and concepts with easy to understand diagrams makes it possible for Logic Pro X users of all levels to learn its features – no matter how easy or advanced.


The GEM Advantage


Graphics, Graphics, Graphics
Every feature and concept is explained with rich graphics and illustrations that are not found in any other book or documentation. These are not just a few screenshots with arrows in it. I take the time to create unique diagrams to illustrate the concepts and workflows.

Knowledge and Understanding
The purpose of my manuals is to provide the reader with the knowledge and understanding of an app that is much more valuable than just listing and explaining a set of features.

For any given feature, I list every available command so you can decide which one to use in your workflow. Some of the information is not even found in the app’s documentation.

For Beginners and Advanced Users
The graphical approach makes my manuals easy to understand for beginners, but still, the wealth of information and details provide plenty of material, even for the most advanced user.

Three formats
No other manual is available in all three formats: PDF (from my website), interactive multi-touch iBooks (on Apple’s iBooks Store), and printed book (on Amazon).

Interactive iBooks
No other manual is available in the enhanced iBook format. I include an extensive glossary, also with additional graphics. Every term throughout the content of the iBook is linked to the glossary term that lets you popup a window with the explanations without leaving the page you are currently reading. Every term lists all the entries in the book where it is used and links to other related terms.

No other manual stays up to date with the current version of the app. Due to the rapid update cycles of applications nowadays, most books by major publishers are already outdated by the time they are released. I constantly update my books to stay current with the latest version of an app.

Free Updates (PDF, iBook only)
No other manual provides free updates, I do. Whenever I update a book, I email a free download link of the PDF file to current customers. iBooks customers will receive an automatic update notification and 24 hours after a new update, the printed book will be available on Amazon. They are print-on-demand books, which means, whenever you order a book on Amazon, you get the most recent version and not an outdated one sitting in a publisher’s warehouse.
