    Though I own Logic Pro X and just by owing a mac, I own Garageband, I have never been able to get my head around how to use them. Watching this tutorial has really gotten me going in the right direction. If you’ve always wanted to be able to add that “little extra” to your FCP X projects, I highly recommend getting this tutorial. Mary Plummer does an excellent job of teaching the concepts of Garageband to you while keeping it simple. She uses a project based method. And rest assured, all of these techniques carry over to Logic Pro X.
