Logic X: Sound Design and Moving Image for Music and Media (Advanced)

Course Description

On this course you will explore techniques that will help you to improve your music production and provide insight into how audio software is used in the media industries e.g. film and game. The course will explore synthesis, sampling and the use of SFX. It will provide a comprehensive introduction to working with moving image in Logic X and help you understand how music and sound work in media. Learners should have some familiarity with Logic X.

Course Content

This is a more detailed and challenging approach to music technology and Logic Audio. You will learn:

? Synthesis and how to program software instruments
? Sampling and how to create original sample patches
? Advanced MIDI, audio editing and manipulation techniques (e.g. Flex Time and Pitch / sidechain compression etc)
? Logic X Sound to Moving Image Toolbox e.g. how to synchronise music and SFX to moving image
? Understanding the difference between music and sound for media e.g. the seven properties of sound
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.
