Though it is now infinitely easier to record music than it was pre-computer, that doesn't mean the process itself is a simple one. Learning about the software and the parameters of the different programs requires a very long
period of trial and error and experimentation. Here Dot Bustelo explains Logic--a music-making software--and how professional recording engineers
(in particular Pro Tools engineers) might make use of this program.
If you're not making records on a professional level, you're probably not even using Logic and won't need to use this book. But many bands are now mixing in Logic, and engineers need to know how to use it.
That's where this book becomes a useful tool.
The author breaks down this guidebook into three sections: recording, editing and mixing. The chapters are laid out in linear fashion, but the information provided in each section is self-contained and can be extracted separately from other sections.
You can learn all the tricks and hip moves that masters of Logic use and add that to your arsenal. Everyone from the Killers to Maroon 5 use Logic.
If you do apply it to your own music--whether you're an engineer or a producer--you're not going to sound like those bands. But it is a start.
