The next tutorials are devoted to the Mixer, where you'll likely spend the majority of your time when using the Logic Remote. Doug then digs deep into the Contextual Features of the Library, along with Selecting Patches and Settings.

Moving on, Doug explores one of the most unique features of Logic Remote, the Touch Instruments, which help you not just control Logic Pro Software Instruments, but make music more intuitively. Doug finishes up with two more extremely helpful elements of Logic Remote, Key Commands and Smart Help.

Logic Remote Explained now includes a new video on the Logic Remote 1.2.2 update, which features extensive support for Alchemy 2, the powerful new synthesizer included in Logic Pro X 10.2... See all about it!

The Logic Remote 1.3 update added a bunch of useful features, such as the ability to use Logic Remote on your iPhone and iPad Pro, the ability to connect multiple devices at the same time, and the ability to re-arrange keyboard shortcut tiles. Doug Zangar has produced four new videos to cover these features and more!

Excellently well explained.

I'm an old geezer and it all made sense to me. I enjoyed it and learned much about what was needed.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing a bit of guitar and piano in the mid-60’s as a small child. Nothing really stuck until my first electric guitar and ensuing garage band in high school. By my last year of high school I was studying jazz guitar and the music bug had bitten.

2. What training have you had?

I went on to get a BFA in music (magna cum laude) from Cornish College of the Arts, emphasizing jazz guitar. Faculty at that time included Gary Peacock, Art Lande and Marius Nordal. I also completed the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program, where I studied with Hummie Mann. Additionally, I have become a certified trainer for Apple’s Logic Pro software on versions 6, 7, and 8.

3. When did you get into recording?

My first home recording gear was purchased in the mid ‘80s. It consisted of a Tascam Porta One and a Roland 505 drum machine. By the late 80’s the Atari 1040 ST and Logic’s predecessor, Notator 2.0 were purchased. Digital audio didn’t arrive at the home studio until the early ‘90’s, with Digidesign’s Session 8.

4. People you have worked with/for?

My professional career has included working with Pavarotti, Vic Damone and Diahann Carroll. I have written music for commercials on television and radio and scored independent films. Studio work includes performing on as well as arranging and producing many CD projects. I have also helped many Seattle area musicians work with Logic.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I draw from my formal education, 4 years of running the Seattle Logic User Group, over 20 years of teaching music at the community college level and 30 years real-world experience working in the music business to give you a lot of insights and tips and tricks on how to use Logic to help create and refine your work.
