"It seems everything about the application is covered somewhere in the book, from file-saving structures and organisation, to in-depth exploration of the EXS24 sampler; from synthesis and the built-in synthesisers, to working with movie files. And more…here is no better system on offer to musicians wanting to take their song from scratch demo to finished recording than Logic Pro, and this book will help those musicians as well as producers and mixers alike become true Logic ninjas, putting the stress of trying to understand the software behind them." -- Ben Trigg, Musicians' Republic
