Logic Pro X


How would you like to grasp a strong fundamental understanding of digital creation? Logic Pro X is a popular audio-industry standard DAW (digital audio workstation). It’s a leading industry DAW for creatives interested in production, digital composition, and sound design. Logic Pro X provides learners an accessible user-friendly interface for music creation, production, and editing. This general purpose Logic course is geared more towards the singer songwriter/composer/producer who mainly works with audio along with some Midi to supplement their productions. It covers all the fundamentals from recording, editing, navigating, using Drummer, and arranging. With its ease of use, Logic Pro X is an optimal choice for visually impaired learners offering creative proficiency without sacrificing technical precision or control.

Expanding beyond memorization of 100s of short-cuts in various applications (OS, VO, and DAW), we train learners in resourcefulness empowering them to effectively work side-by-side with their sighted peers. Screen reader navigation of the UI (user-interface) enables learners to achieve fully independent participation in course work at educational institutions.



A comprehensive understanding of Mac OS.
 90% accuracy with Qwerty keyboard familiarity (all Mac courses). 
A comprehensive understanding of voice over screen reader navigation. 
Basic working knowledge of all necessary hardware (specific to each individual configuration)
