    Logic is a pretty heavy duty program and requires some knowledge of audio recording to use well. I recomed using GarageBand as a starting point. It's like logic junior. once you master the Ins and outs of GarageBand, I think logic will just become natural. The only thing is that you have to look for what your looking for, but at least you'll know what your looking at. Import a GarageBand song into logic and see how the effects and tracks work in logic, since garagband is hiding it's logic roots with a simplified interface. Good luck, ITs the way I figured logic out. Just somtimes I just enjoy the simplicity of GarageBand and use that instaed and do the final touches in logic.

    Thank you for your help, yeah i was thinking about getting to know GarageBand first.

    would it be easiest to just search tutorials and how toos on youtube?

    The retail version of Logic comes with about 15 tons of good reading material.

    I suggest David Nahmani's book on Logic. He also has an excellent website: www.logicprohelp.com

    The manual is always helpful as well.

    I would suggest learning analog signal flow, as well as basic synthesis.

    Duff-Man says....I suppose it is natural that one would want their help and/or tutorials for free, but when you've invested the $$ (500 is it?) into something like Logic Studio and you are going in completely cold you ought to be prepared to invest a little into learning how to use it too.

    Have you looked at some of the resources listed at Apple's site?
    http://www.apple.com/logicstudio/resources/
    Try a few of those and see if that's of any help....oh yeah!

    The site is free, it's just a forum like this one.

    The book is $50 or so.
