(must625) logic pro x intro posts

Working with Logic Pro X requires some attention to program setup (preferences) and how to use audio within tracks. Knowing some keyboard shortcuts also helps.

The very first thing you should do after launching Logic Pro X is to turn on Show Advanced Tools (Logic Pro X > Preferences > Advanced Tools…) and turn on Show Advanced Tools. Make sure all the options are checked. If you run Logic Pro without Advanced Tools on it looks and works like Garage Band.

I’m linking to three posts to help you get started with the Logic Pro portion of the musique concrete project.

When you save your project for the first time (and you should save fairly soon after opening your project), pay attention to the options in the lower portion of the save dialog box. You want to organize your project as a folder and copy audio files into your project.
