Comprehensive online video course site Lynda.com has expanded their series on Apple's flagship DAW Logic Pro X (read our full review here), created and hosted by veteran producer and sound designer Dot Bustelo.
 
In this series, Dot Bustelo walks through every facet of basic drum programming and beat making in Logic Pro, including choosing the right drum kit for the beat, recording, arranging, and quantizing. She shows off Drummer, the intelligent drum feature, for creating beats automatically. She then moves into Ultrabeat, Logic's built-in drum machine, and shows how to step sequence, design your own sounds, use your own samples, and create glitchy effects with the instrument. Then Dot dives deeper into making beats. She demonstrates how to make your own Apple Loops, time-stretch, quantize, and regroove audio as well as how to best add swing to your beats, fatten your sounds with drum replacement, and slice your samples. She then focuses on techniques specific to electronic music, including warping a beat with Space Designer and making DJ turntable effects with speed fades, and some retro groove tricks, including creating a human drummer feel with the Transform Editor and editing gate time. Dot wraps up the course by looking at a few more of the new beat making features in Logic Pro X, including the Arpeggiator and other MIDI plug-ins.
