Logic Videos on YouTube And Elsewhere  [ Edit ] 

I just found out about the Logic tutorial videos of SFLogicNinja (aka David Earl), found on YouTube. I just watched one on creating a custom EXS24 sampler instrument in Logic 8, and it was a succinct and helpful overview.

I’ve also been checking out some of the tutorial videos at MacProVideo, trying to decide if I want to invest in them. The videos look really good, and would probably be inspiring, but then I look at the massive manual and think “I’d probably learn a lot just by reading this manual I already own”. We’ll see. If I do buy a set of videos, it will probably be the TNT series, which is on sale through a special link that includes an amusing “preview” of the as-yet-unannounced Logic 8.2.

I've been eyeing the MPV videos too, and probably will try one at some point. The trouble with the manuals is that they tell you what all the different buttons and sliders do, but not why you should do something rather than something else, or best practices, or way cool inventive ways to do stuff that manual writers didn't know or think of. You can read through the whole chapter for UltraBeat and when you're done you find yourself thinking: "Amazing! Now what? Where do I start?"

But thanks so much for those YouTube videos -- I've been wondering where to find good free tutorials and tips for Logic.

Yeah, I guess it's a question of where I want to throw my open-ended learning time. The plugins manual seems fairly good for getting some basic understanding of topics like compression and synthesis, but the manual is not necessarily particular good with workflow. Hence Apple's Pro Training series of books.

I'm sure there's more on YouTube related to Logic, in fact, I know there's more, I just don't know if any of it is good. :)

Hey there!

The MacProVideo stuff is very, very good.

The manual is more reference material, in my opinion. I would also check out the Peach Pit Press Logic stuff, 'cause it's project based and very goo at taking you from the beginning to the end of a project....

Anyway, thanks for checking me out.
