For many of us writing music isn’t all that hard. You and I have been doing it so long that it’s kinda second nature.
But how about writing a hit song? In your bedroom? A song so captivating it captures the attention of the world overnight?
Well, it turns out that’s exactly what happened for Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell. A song they posted on Soundcloud with no intent or ambition other than to share with a teacher. Yet this song caught like wildfire online, and paved the way to a very successful musical career!
And what’s even more amazing, is that this hit song is now available to all Logic users with the 10.5 update.
“Ocean Eyes” is the song responsible for altering the trajectory of Billie and Finneas’s lives. And you can find it in the Demo Projects section of the Templates Window:
“Ocean Eyes” is a wonderful exposé of a great song and mix. A song that doesn’t need 100+ tracks to make its point.
But my gosh is there’s some extreme EQ going on! Yet, the full mix works together wonderfully 🙂
I freaking love that Apple includes these demo Projects in Logic Pro. And I think it only proves that Logic Pro X has everything we need to deliver great music.
So today I’d like to do a deep, deep dive into the included “Ocean Eyes” demo Project.
