• Apply Fundamentals of Logic Pro X in Music Production Course

    Industry best practices in music production requires at least basic knowledge of Digital Work Stations (DAW) in order to streamline the mechanics of modern digital music production. If musicians are not familiar working with DAWs, they lose out in collaborative opportunities.

    By learning how to apply fundamentals of Logic Pro X, musicians are able to use a commercially standard DAW platform to compose, arrange, record and produce digital content. This course aims to provide the fundamental skills on which they can build upon and contextualise for their specific production needs.

    The course also aims at enabling musicians to make appropriate audio recording choices that dovetail into the functions and capabilities of a DAW, thus integrating audio recording seamlessly into a digital music production. Such choices include selecting appropriate effect plug-ins for various instruments, turning audio recordings into editable audio tracks on a DAW, performing basic audio-engineering on the audio production.

      I like this idea and I'm interested. I'd like to participate because it seems very interesting and it is something new for me. But from my point of view, to be able to do all this it takes a good laptop, right?
