Master Every Logic Instrument - and Create Limitless Awesome Sounds.
In this course you will understand and master all of Logic Pro X’s virtual instrument plugins, synthesizers and VSTs. Starting from beginner level, you’ll learn the deep principles of synthesis and enhance your music by learning how to emulate the instrument, synth and drum sounds of your favorite artists, producers and sound effects designers - as well as a wealth of other music production skills.
Each of the many free instruments included in Logic is like it’s own piece of software. Some of these are small like the ESE, ESM and ESP - but others, like Alchemy Synthesiser & Sampler or Sculpture Modelling Synth provide so many parameters they can be overwhelming could have their own entire courses. Many people don’t even scratch the surface of what these instruments do and buy new ones without realising how powerful they are for composition and Sound Effects Design SFX for games and film
The Entire Logic Instruments Manual - In One Step-by-Step Video Course.
Many courses on Logic Pro go through the production, editing and mixing side of the program, but do not explain the instruments in depth. Understanding the concepts behind how these instruments work, let alone learning the interface can take months and it’s easy for even conscientious people to give up.
I’ve read the manual for you - literally. I’ve read every page of that that thing and condensed and rephrased that complex bible into a practical course that guides you through each instrument - backed with the concepts you need to understand each one and make it yours.
You could take this course and go through the whole thing, or use this as your production instrument encyclopedia - referring to it at will whenever you forget what a dial or knob does.
Which Logic Instruments Does the Course Cover?
Starting with a complete introduction to Synthesis mini-course, this course builds through the most simple instruments sequentially, right up to the most complex - covering everything you need to know about the following Logic Pro X instruments:
In addition, I cover core concepts behind using these virtual instruments that allow you to use them exceedingly well. Concepts and guides to the controls of things like:
An entire course on Alchemy - The Ultimate Synthesizer and Sampler Instrument.
Alchemy (originally by Camel Audio) is one of the most complex and powerful synthesisers inside of Logic. It’s parameters could warrant an entire course in itself.
The course takes you through the entire interface and every dial and knob (barring the extended spectral synthesis parameters) - allowing you to turn Alchemy into an extremely powerful workhorse.
Sound Design and Effects Creation for Games & Film
The Logic Instruments course is also particularly useful for game composers and sound designers. Mastering all the interesting and detailed parameters in these sound effect creation VSTs can give you an endless sound palette to build wonderful and weird effects for your game design projects.

Instructor is incredibly thorough, very meticulous in his descriptions and in his development of the course structure. Very very impressed, learning a great deal!
Extremely meticulous and well thought out course. Often courses on Udemy feel cobbled together, especially the larger ones. Jack clearly thought out each section and is very good at layering up knowledge without glossing over details or wasting time. Great teacher. I hope to see more courses by Jack for Logic Pro.
Very good, easy to understand, and yhe comination of showing and telling works good for me. Helped my learningcurve alot,
This class was well structured; wide introductions were followed by a proper and useful level of detail.
Muito bom, o que eu já aprendi até agora já valeu meu investimento! Apenas achei algumas instruções muito rápidas e difíceis de serem acompanhadas, precisei retornar o video para assistir outra vez.
Great Course - got back into my passion for synthesis recently after many many years as just a guitarist. As logic is my chosen DAW this seemed to be a great match for me. Loved how we go through reviewing the fundamental concepts of synthesis/sound design, as well as getting into what every little knob does for every logic synth - in my opinion (as someone who usually just desperately wants to get going with the creative process - but is also a little OCD and wants to understand as much as possible about music) this was much easier to get all the way through and complete than having to peer over a manual for each software synth.
Looked through this course -- and just from "Contents" and some videos I can say it's worth to take a look at this course, because otherwise it's hard and long to find such valuable information. Thanks a lot for this course!
Awesome content for this course! Really gets into all the different synthetic and plugin effects. Would recommend it for anyone who has only used Logic on a basic level or is just getting started. I've been using Logic for 8 months and this course is taking me to a whole new level!
A Superb course! I enjoyed it so much, I want to start from the beginning and take the whole course again!
So far the instructor is just going over some basic tips but I think as I get deeper into the course it'll be much more details and informative. I'm looking forward to it.
This course is an outstanding value… Learning logic instruments is an in valuable skill to have. Thank you so much for creating this course
The rating could have been a five. I like his concept of being able to use his information right away. But, at this point, the subjects jump around too much. The course does not seem cohesive. Perhaps, he’ll pull it all together by the end of the course.
This course is outstanding - both musically and pedagogically creative. Stands out from the crowd. Great work - many thanks. Tom Short
I never thought that I would understand Synthesizers and sound... Thank you for the simple yet very deep knowledgeable way you have explained it. I'm hooked.
This is the course I had been searching for! If you are looking to dive deep into all of Logic Pro X's full potential then I highly recommend this course!
