Berkleemusic.com, the online continuing education division of Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music, announces a new online course called “Producing Music With Logic.” Berklee professors Jeff Baust and David Doms (pictured) have created a course to help students of all levels of ability to better navigate Apple's Logic Pro and learn the best of Berklee's production techniques.

In “Producing Music With Logic,” online students record and edit both MIDI and audio data; use Logic Pro's software instruments; work with sound design plug-ins; mix a music project; and produce two substantial music productions.

“We start with the basics,” says Baust, “so that the beginner can immediately get up and running. Then we go deep into all of the instruments, the editing environments, and the capabilities of Logic, including the power user shortcuts, so that even the intermediate and advanced users learn new things and everyone can get a lot out of this class.”

Students learn the elements of production design, such as creative considerations in composition and song form, and the arrangement tools in Logic. Also covered are Logic’s mixing tools and advanced mixing techniques, such as setting up software instruments with multiple outputs, sidechaining, and mix automation. The course provides many critical listening examples, interactive activities, and “power user” tips and tricks for using Logic Pro.

Doms explains: “Logic is a very powerful interface, as far as MIDI and audio editing goes, but in particular, it has a collection of soft synths and samplers that are second to none. Logic has a distinctive ability to generate the sounds you want and need.”

Baust adds: “This course is all about musical creativity — how to get a good recording, why to use certain tools and how to use them in combinations to get outstanding sound in your productions.”
