During this course you will learn the essential elements of using Logic Pro to produce and create music and sound design projects. This course covers all the basic elements of Logic from project set up, to plug-in’s and how to use them. You will learn how to approach production projects from two essential elements – music and sound design. The first project will cover the creation of sound effects and the manipulation of audio to create a finished movie project. The second will cover the musical elements of creating for a TV advert. This will include a brief introduction to the construction of chords and how to use them but will focus more on the use of the tools within Logic to create a polished musical piece. This course is perfect for those with no or very limited knowledge of Logic Pro and music production.
