Logic Pro X 10.2.1 includes far more changes than its humble number increase implies, and Eli Krantzberg returns to take you through all of its enhancements and changes as well as creative ways to use them!

Eli begins with a video showing how to access one of the major enhancements of this update, the new multithreading functionality for live tracks. This allows you to distribute the CPU load of Logic tracks more efficiently than ever before,

After that, Eli demonstrates the new bounce and export features, and the new tool enhancements, followed by how to access the full Flex Pitch feature set right in the tracks area.

Eli then reveals how to use the new Metronome and Click settings along with the new beat mapping algorithm, and how to use the Automatic Lane Set in the Step Editor, which will generate unique note and controller lanes on the fly as they are used in a region making MIDI editing faster than ever.

After that, Eli moves onto the tweaks to the Piano Roll editor and Catch behavior, then demonstrates the new Drum Machine Designer behavior. Next, he delves into enhancements to the Plug-In Manager and the various little tweaks to make using the Score Editor a more pleasant experience, thanks to new display settings and entry methods.

The next three videos all focus on plug-in updates. The new GUI and controls for many of the delay and distortion plug-ins are covered, and in the following video, the new GUI and controls for the metering, dynamics, and filter plug-ins. Finally, the changes to Alchemy get their own video. The series ends with a grab bag of minor changes to the GUI in general.

Extremely Helpful

Although I have been a Logic user since the Emagic days, I've toyed with the idea of switching to another DAW especially since that DAW's recent updates improved ease of process and workflow execution. However, the recent Logic Pro X updates have provided many, and in some cases, more of the same process and workflow execution improvements. Eli's tutorials have been extremely helpful in deep diving how best to integrate those improvements into my workflow, otherwise, I may have overlooked them in favor of continuing with old work habits. Please Keep Them Coming!!!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing drums in high school at age fourteen. Like most kids my age around then, I was into progressive rock. Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. They rocked my world. A few short years later though, my musical life changed. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Milt Jackson spoke to me in such a profound way that it left me no choice but to take up vibraphone.

These great players, along with  drummers like Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones changed not only the way I thought about drumming, but also music - and by extension, life - as a whole. I realized life was meant to be a creative endeavor. The idea of improvising based on a loose set of guidelines and rules permeated into my psyche even when I wasn't holding a pair of drumsticks or mallets. But if I am going to be perfectly truthful, I have to hold Henry Miller and Woody Allen equally responsible for shaping the way I view and experience the world around me. 

2. What training have you had?

I am currently an Apple certified Logic Pro. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and  began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. This went on for many years until I decided it was time to complete my degree - which I ultimately did with a major in Political Science and a minor in music. 

It was at this point that I formed my current band Nightshift. We are going in to our twenty third year now - playing commercial one nighters like weddings, corporate events, etc. Don't turn your nose up at it though - it has allowed me a wonderful quality of life. It gave me the freedom to go back to school and complete a post graduate degree in Communications Studies - all the while supporting myself by playing weddings.

3. When did you get into recording?

It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing. Based on nothing more than the recommendation of one of my band mates who had an old Atari, I jumped in head first and bought a Mac LC ll, along with a version 1.1 of what was then Notator Logic. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. 

I opened up my own commercial home studio in 1998 and began doing a variety of projects, working on radio jingles, artist CD projects, and whatever came my way. A couple of years later a colleague called me up - desperate. He was working at a post production house and one of the editors had just quit. They were doing audio post for a weekly TV series and needed a Pro Tools editor - and fast! And so, once again, I jumped in head first into what would ultimately open up my world even more - the world of Pro Tools. 

4. People you have worked with/for?

Focusing on Logic, I built up a small but loyal client base and my phone kept ringing for Logic tech support and instruction. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. Even the music stores were giving out my phone number at this point! This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The more of it you do, the more calls you get to keep doing it. At least that's the way it should be!

As my Logic chops kept growing, I was hired by an old buddy of mine, Len Sasso, who was then an associate editor at Electronic Musician magazine, and began writing some columns for them. I had a blast doing them - and really learned to focus and express my thoughts in a concise and clear manner. This lead to a collaboration with LA based composer Terry Michael Huud on the 2006 film called Civic Duty - which was certainly one of the highlights of my professional life as a composer. 

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I wake up every day excited to boot up, and create. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Enriched by the stimulation and creative freedom this modern music making software brings to my life. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. My years of experience both using and teaching these programs has taught me the best way to make the user comfortable with these complex programs.
