Martin Sitter
Apple's original courseware author for Logic Studio, Soundtrack Pro, & DVD Studio Pro, Martin Sitter is a best-selling technical writer, and the founder of macProVideo.com!


Most people know me from the Apple Pro Training Series.

I started teaching in 2001, at the Vancouver Film School. There, I taught DVD-Video design and Audio Mastering.

During that period, I also began designing and authoring Apple's official courseware for Logic and DVD Studio Pro, in the Apple Pro Training Series.

In 2003 I left the Vancouver Film School to become Apple's Lead Trainer for Logic. In that capacity, I traveled to many of the world's premier universities and multimedia schools, training Professors and Instructors in the official "Apple Method" of teaching their applications (a method I designed, through my work creating Apple's courseware).

During that period, I started macProVideo.com and released our first DVD Studio Pro and Logic video-tutorials.

In 2005 I stopped teaching for Apple, and turned my focus entirely to macProVideo.com. While I continue to write courseware books for Apple, these days my focus is on video-based education.

I live by the principle that efficiently commanding your computer can create dramatic shifts in your life. Here's some examples ...

Software now gives everybody the ability to create, mix, and master music that sounds as good as songs on the radio. Video editors use Macs to make box-office hits. And happily, Apple users have been given a front row ticket to the show:

With an Apple computer, anyone can tell their story!

I created macProVideo.com to make the story-telling easier. Our tutorial videos show you how to use software through moving pictures, and sound. Learn quickly and then spend your time creating stories, instead of dreaming about them.
