Logic Pro offers an amazing array of tools to create and sculpt sound. In these 21 video tutorials trainer Joshua Carney explores some unusual sound design concepts guaranteed to bring a new world of sonic heaven to you productions.
Apple's Logic Pro is an amazing DAW for sound designers, as you're about to find out in these tutorials. Like a sculptor carves a statue from a block of clay, the sound designer creates unique sounds and soundscapes by completely transforming a sample or an oscillator beyond recognition. And contrary to what many people think, the art of sound design is not just for film work... it's everywhere these days: music production, video games, and live performances.
Joshua starts by explaining and demonstrating the differences between the different synthesis method, from subtractive, additive and wavetable oscillator-based synthesis to sampling and granular synthesis. He then explains synthesis modulation, before diving deep into the fun stuff: sound creation! You discover various ways to create unique ambient sounds, morphing soundscapes and rhythms. You learn unusual sidechaining techniques, how to create epic action drums and lo-fi beats, how to stack multi-textured instruments and a lot more...
So join Joshua Carney in this course as he shares his secret sound design techniques. Get ready to enhance your audio and music productions, and take your art of sound design to a new level!

I really appreciate Josh's work with MPV. The first introduction I had to Logic was on his YouTube channel. I spent hours going through his videos, I think one series had something like 127 of them. Sadly, I don't do this for a living so I keep going through courses to refresh my memory about things that would be old hat if I had to do it everyday.
This course in particular was really fun. I always knew there were a lot of really good tools included in Logic, but if you go through and replicate the examples and then take it further creating your own, you'll be surprising yourself in no time at the soundscapes and effects you are capable of making. I just finished it and I have a whole folder of example projects and ideas for things I want to try. Cudos Josh!! Thanks!

When I saw that Joshua Carney had a new Logic Pro X course out I couldn't click fast enough.
Carney is a Logic pro (excuse the pun) and an experienced teacher, and consequently is extremely knowledgeable and nuanced in his approach to teaching. And as someone who's been looking for a proper sound design course on recent versions of Logic, I certainly wasn't disappointed.
Even when you think you know the underlying concept well enough that you could probably skip it or the course in its entirety, Carney brings enough know-how and experience that you end up learning something new anyway.
Note: this course was perfect for me but probably a bit too advanced for someone who is just starting out in music production, is not familiar with Logic Pro X, or has little knowledge of basic synthesis. The course also potentially may be a bit too high level on the 3 main instruments covered, Sampler, Quick Sampler, and Alchemy. While Carney does cover the basics, I would say that absolute beginners would still be better off doing a more basic course on all of those things first. If you do have the basics down-pat then this course is highly recommended.
