“Logic Pro X – The Details” – Available as iBooks
Finally, the book “Logic Pro X – The Details” (revised for Logic Pro X 10.1) is now also available as an interactive multi-touch iBooks on Apple’s iBooks Store. www.DingDingMusic.com/Manuals
What are Enhanced iBooks?
While regular eBooks are mostly just a transfer of the printed book version with some additional search and annotation capabilities, the Enhanced iBooks (only available on Apple’s iBooks Store and marked as “Made for iBooks”) go far beyond that. They provide the author with tools to create a rich user experience almost like an app. Enhanced iBooks could originally only be read on iPads, but now the iBooks app lets you read those books also on your computer.
If you haven’t experienced this unique style of reading and learning yet, please download the free sample book of this Enhanced iBook (on the same iBooks Store page) and see for yourself. It provides the best experience for an easy-visual-interactive way of learning Logic Pro X, plus crispy graphics when viewed on your iPad.
The iBooks version of “Logic Pro X – The Details” contains an additional graphically enhanced glossary with 600 terms that are linked throughout the content of the book (I will add even more terms in the following updates). Tap on a linked word in the book and a popup window displays the glossary entry with links to other sections of the book with the same term, or links to other related terms. Of course, you can make searchable notes, highlight sections, and even make flash cards with the click of a button.
The content of this iBooks is the same as the pdf or printed book version, but the additional glossary and the interactivity makes it the best reading/learning experience. Even beginners and intermediate Logic users can now dive into the more advanced features of Logic without getting lost in a typical text-based manual.
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.
Please note that both of the Logic manuals in my "Graphically Enhanced Manuals" series are still the only books (besides the official User Guide) that are based on the most recent version of Logic Pro X v10.1. All other books from other publishers are outdated at this time, based on older versions, which is problematic due to the significant changes in the most recent Logic updates.
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 Logic’s User Guide.
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.
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).
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.
