Logic Pro is a full-featured music application with all the tools you need to create professional quality music tracks. The course will show you how to record, arrange and edit audio and MIDI regions, add effects, mix your music and export the final mix in a variety of formats. This is for everyone who wishes to use computer technology to record, create, produce and master their own music. If you have a passion for creating, writing or re-mixing all types of music, this course is for you.
For this course you will need some computing skills (either on a PC or MAC) and some musical ability, which would be useful but not essential. The course is also suitable for continuing learners in this subject. You will also be expected to complete an Individual Learning Plan to help support your progress.
This course is a fun and dynamic introduction to the process of making and recording music using an Apple Mac computer and Logic Pro. It will challenge you if you are keen to explore the more complex possibilities whilst always offering high quality instant results if you are just up for some fun and experimentation. You will be introduced to re-mixing, sequencing, recording techniques, audio sampling, live recording, beat matching, MIDI techniques and drum programming. Please note: although you will be introduced to all the above over a single term (10-weeks), the course is developmental over the whole year. If you sign up for the full three terms (courses A, B and C) at the start of the academic year e.g. August / September you will be entitled to the early bird discount.
