This classic title is, perhaps, the best course on the physics of sound ever created! From detailed descriptions of sound synthesis, to intriguing discussions of audio perception ... this program is guaranteed to bring that 'A-Ha!' moment to anyone interested in sound!
What makes sound, sound?
This tutorial program is a master-stroke of video training. It is just as entertaining as it is informative. Through a careful blend of humor and pointed discussion, Steve introduces the theory behind how sound is made.
Topics such as frequency, amplitude, and how they combine to make sound are explored through an expert's ear as Steve shows you how to build sound waves through synthesis.
Next, Steve strips those waves down while demonstrating how filters shape frequencies. You'll hear the difference between cut and pass filtering, how to EQ, and when to phase vs. flange.
This is a deep trip into the fundamentals of sound, and it's required viewing for anyone looking to utilize Logic ... or any other audio program!

Really good overview of the physics of sound presented in typical Steve H style. There was some really interesting tutorials within this course, that were explained well. The only downside to this course is that it is not long enough!
Excellent! I really enjoy every course by Steve Horelick, he really knows how to present material in an easy to understand way without "dumbing it down".
This was awesome. This course drove home some of the facts that were swimming in my mind from other courses and allowed me to put a couple of things into practice. The light manner in which the instructor teaches keeps the student not only engaged but also encourages the student to open up Logic and play along with him. I was able to dust off some of my plugins and while twisting and turning knobs like a small child, I was able to grasp understanding of what those knobs were called and what their purpose was. I would call this course, FUN!!! I am using Logic Pro X, and I was able to follow along with everything. thank You Mac Pro Video and Steve Horelick. -Rachelle Lang
Heard so much about this course, and although it's quite old now, what I've learnt is timeless. I have in some way manipulated all that was talked about, but I have so much more understanding now.
Such an amazing course! It's a real shame that it isn't in a better location in the library. It should definitely have more exposure. It's so hard to find tutorials that can go so deep into basics.
Incredibly valuable information, very easy to understand presentation. Outstanding tutorial for anybody involved with all aspect of sound, music and recording.
A solid introduction to the subject. It not only explains the basics in a clear, concise manner, but by using Logic and its tools helps introduce you to aspects of Logic you might not have known.
I ordered 9 different tutorials, covering various aspects of Logic. Though my music is primarily acoustic based, I found something in each one that opened up a whole new world . I'm a first time user of Logic, and was at first overwhelmed by the sheer content of the program. But after my first tutorial, (Logic 101) I was soon on my way too recording my first track. The tutorials move quickly, but you're able too review (recommened) as many times as needed. I found the tutorials got me out of the "fear stage" of Logic, inspiring me, and my music. Highly recommended!!!
A very entertaining and infomative video! All the things you wondered about but were afraid to ask...
Very good tutorial, that contains a lot of info as a prerequisite to using soft synths. It could use a little updating, but still informative nonetheless.
Sound (and why it sounds that way) is a good starting point for me in learning how to record and producing
Excellent (as usual). Sound engineering suddenly seems accessible to a non-techie musician. I learned a lot and was entertained at the same time. Fabulous - thank you.
Best of the best
Nice this. I like Steve H. Hes got a nice calm voice, and his videos are entertaining. This one is a great introduction to soundtermenology for beginners. All this stuf is nice to know for someone beginning soundproduction. I recomend it...
Again very pleased with this video. I have read many books on sound, but to see things visual in the context of logic and also a bit of soundtrack pro. Very useful. Thanks. Am marking 4 just to be a bit greedy and hope there is room for improvement. Thing is, there is so much info in these videos, need to see them a few times for it to really sink in. Great!
great guys all in all but love more comprehensive on pro tools plugins and mixing [ie basic rules of thumb about recording a band thanks guys
This is a good tutorial, but I have to be honest - I wish more had been covered. There is a lot of information in relation to how pink (and white) noise are affected, and this is very good information presented in Steve's inimitable way making things clear to see and easy to understand, but it would have been much better had it also contained examples of practical applications of the same concepts. Some practical applications are given later in the tutorial - I wish it had been so from the beginning. I give this one a 3.5.
This tutorial is a great fundamental lesson on sound and how it works. It is not too technical for people like me, but still does an excellent job in gaining an understand and getting it! Thank you, Steve Horelick for making this tutorial fun and easy to understand for boneheads like me. Could you perhaps do a tutorial on song arrangement and mixing or mastering with electronic music like drum and bass. If you present it like SOUND, then there no stopping me. HAHA!
This is highly recommended for everyone involved in music production. I have been playing & recording for decades and found the training interesting, refreshing & entertaining.
Really good overview of sound and using some of the plug ins. I would like Steve to show it's applications in a musical context. Barb
i have been watching this video everyday and now i believe i have got a good understanding of sound, which will make my music producing much easier and better. thanks a lot for this supter tutorial. consice and touches the point!! i look forward to your next topic on logic's plugins: hard look at soft syths. i really can't wait to ssee it.
Very good, and helps understand the bones of music. I enjoyed this thoroughly and it is a good companion to the plug in video.
A great and logical progression of sound explanation
A blessing from heaven. These tutorials needs to be owned by everyone in the business including those of us with college degrees in the business. I WOULD PAY 5 TIMES MORE FOR THE SAME PRODUCT IF ASKED. On point and to the point. Simple language down to the finest detail. Just awesome. Now Logic will for ever be part of my life after quite a few successful years with Protools, cubase, DP etc... keep it up. Rating: 5 X x
Found the "Sound and how its made" video package very interesting and educational. There were a lot of things that I knew but never really knew why(if you know what I mean) the video confirmed a lot of these things to me in a different way. I liked the quick easy to understand and take in tutorials and look forward to the Plugins vids.
Learning about the theoretical aspects of sound can be quite overwhelming; what with all the jargon that tends to go with it. These tutorials put an end to all that by approaching the subject from a practical point of view. A gentle learning curve ensures that the videos are easy to follow. Real world examples of how the various techniques are employed mean that the knowledge gained can be put to practical use. Another bonus is that these tutorials are allot of fun. Steve's sense of humor really adds that extra something to the proceedings. Basically, this is a great introduction to sound which provides a solid platform to build upon. Thanks guys! I simply can't wait for the next module!
Steve, You Rock Man!! Great Tut!!!!!!!! Recomended. John Boswell
Highly useful and entertaining! Useful for Logic users, Musicians, Teachers and people who are interested in the phenomenon of Sound in General! Steve Horelick manages to include a wealth of information in an easy to follow way, and yet it isn't dry or theoretical/technical. Highly recommended.
