    My Logic Express arrived today with no manual. I searched online but couldn't find one. Where can I find the manual?

    I guess there is no real user manual that takes you through how to use it. Shame on Apple.

    Do you just want one that has "operation manual" in the title? :confused: The "reference manual" is a pretty typical manual -- it starts from "What is Logic?" and goes through the interface, the features, how to use them, etc. Did you actually open it and look at it?

    Yes I did thank you. I spent 4 hours looking at the quick start guide and the reference manual and the quicktime movies. There is nothing I have seen that takes you through it step by step like a user manual does. I cannot even get it to make a sound using my (qwerty) keyboard, let alone using a controller or heaven forbid record something! I think the quick start guide is for Logic and not Logic Express because it says to locate a folder on my disk that isn't there (tutorial f). The documentation is awful. I'd be on the phone screaming at Apple if I didn't have the procare appointment today. Again I say shame on Apple.

    sounds like the first time i fired up Logic 4 and tried to record some vocals. a complete "wtf?" moment. rather, many "wtf" moments all strung together, wondering why it was so difficult to do something so basic. then i fired up PTLE for the first time and, w/in about 2 minutes, was getting good audio from the mic.

    there have been some occasional glances over the shoulder, but for the most part i haven't looked back.
