As Peter Griffin, the impulsive and brash dad from the TV show Family Guy once said –
“You know what really grinds my gears?”
For me, it’s the humongous innovations and bonus content that comes with Logic that few seem to ever talk about.
Even Apple itself barely mentions the gifts they deliver with each Logic update!
(If anyone from Apple is reading this: for the love of God, put some marketing money behind your pro apps. These treasures deserve the love of its parent company to show the world why they rule!)
So what exactly am I talking about today?
Oh, I don’t know. Maybe the fact that we have a major label production living on our hard drives! A production we can solo, sample, pick apart, and learn from!
Ever since the release of 10.4, Apple includes a full-on production by the major label artist Beck.
Produced by longtime Logic Pro user (and major music producer) Greg Kurstin. We have access to a huge Project file of Beck’s single Colors.
135 tracks of awesome production and arrangement to glean and learn from. Using only the plugins and instruments included in Logic.
Even if you were aware that this Project existed, perhaps you haven’t taken the time to truly pick it apart. Maybe you yourself don’t produce crazy, 100+ track count, pop tracks? Or even like Beck?
But like any great producer, artist or engineer will tell you – listening to all sorts of music is the key to creating great music.
And it just boggles my mind to think we have a major label production at our fingertips. Not in some digitally protected format that we can’t solo and sample.
Every single instrument and plugin is right there for us to learn and have fun with.
So in today’s video let’s take a moment to celebrate and poke through the Project file for Colors.
