Welcome to this Logic Pro X tutorial for beginners!

In this video, you’ll learn the basics of the software at a beginner level. I’m going to lay this all out and make this as easy as possible so you have no problem getting started.

So, if you want to feel more confident with Logic Pro X, watch now.

This is a great piece of software. You can do SO MUCH with just the stock plugins that come with Logic. Even if you’re an absolute beginner, getting started is easy.

When it comes to home recording, setting up channels is easy. In the video, I show you how to create audio channels to start recording in seconds.

Or maybe you want to use MIDI and virtual instruments. Logic Pro is known for being super easy to work with when it comes to MIDI. Again, I show you every step in the video. We dive deep into the piano roll editor too.

Then, once you have finish writing and recording your track, its time to edit. Editing is also easy – once you know how to use the tools that come with Logic.

Next is mixing. Thanks to the stock plugins, you can produce studio-level mixes without buying any additional software or plugins. Sure, getting premium plugins helps, but only AFTER you’re already making music that sounds great.

Last but not least, mastering is also easy inside the software. You have all the plugins you need, like EQ, compression and a limiter. I don’t dive deep into plugins in this tutorial, but I show you how to get started.

Once you’ve watched this beginner tutorial, leave a comment and let me know what you want to learn about next. I wanted to just give an overview in this video, so I’m happy to dive deeper in future videos.

I really enjoy your video tutorials. I would like to know you YouTube camera setup: what camera and software do you use to film your tutorials and record your screen?

djperryboy says:

Been using FL Studio for many years and whatever DAW I am watching, there seems to be lacking alot of functions in comparison to FL. So simple and ugly. Like this one. Looks like a basic gray picture as background and where is all the buttons and functions? This looks simplier than like.. FL Studio 3 or something.. This may be better than FL Studio Mobile but cannot see alot more functions honestly…

SAS Productions says:

hi i have a problem if anyone can help me please.
when i first open my track in the morning on logic pro x, i click play and the melody and start play fine but when the first kick plays it sounds funny/ different and the other kicks play fine.
i try and play it again to see if it does it again and it doesn’t. its just when i first open up logic.
i think it might be down to ram as i only got 4gb memory.
any suggestions? ive had this before on another track with organ bass melody.

nounix 3 says:

Great video! Thanks for this! Can you please tell me how I stop this really annoying & time-consuming “Scanning Audio Units” process EVERY TIME I open the app? It’s crazy that every time I open the app it spends 10-15 minutes re-scanning the audio units!! 🙁 🙁 I’m sure that this is not supposed to be happening every time I open the app…

Peter Salmon says:

Hi – I am new to Logic Pro X and am interested in knowing why I always get this message when I try to use one of the loops in my project: “Audio file “60s Shuffle Drumset 01.caf” does not have sufficient access privileges. An overview can not be saved!”. It seems to happen to me whenever I open a project that has previously included instrument tracks or loops. My machine is a second hand iMac and the software was pre-loaded so I am worried about infringing copyright laws. Any thoughts?

데니쇼 says:

WilliMel says:
