Re: Logic 8 101 Has Begun ...
Interesting way to start the updated tutorial, with the emphasis on sound, sampling and frequency. Since Logic 8 seems to have shipped with more accommodating "getting started" exercises, hopefully people will be coming to this opening chapter with a little more orientation.
I myself threw caution to the wind and ordered my upgrade the day it was released, something I normally won't do; obviously I was eager to dive right in. I also lost no time pre-ordering your tutorial, and while I was waiting, orchestrated a piano concerto using the new Symphony Orchestra template, just to kill time.
So I came to this tutorial with a great deal of orientation and enthusiasm, and was actually glad to see it wasn't the usual starting back at the beginning, going over stuff I already know, and more of a technical "sound theory" approach. As usual, I can always count on your tips and asides to put a little more insight into something I think I've already covered (like how much easier it is to create tracks now, see the waveforms in the regions, quicker ways to choose tools, snapping to zero crossings, setting undo levels for sample editing, etc); I'd so much rather learn from someone who actually uses the tools for their livelihood rather than from a developer or someone who merely teaches. When an artist has a teacher who is himself an artist, that connection makes for a better learning experience, which is why I keep coming back for more. Can't wait til next week!
BTW, I was wondering why your voice sounded so much lower at the beginning; thanks for explaining that, and hope you're feeling better!
