Thanks for the offer David. :)
It could be Amazon UK just need a nudge from your publisher to get their act sorted. :?
I'll give them another couple of days, to save you the hassle if nothing else.
Thanks again.
Cheers

Just heard back from my publisher, unfortunately it takes Amazon UK about 2 months to receive and stock books from the US :shock: This sounds insane but apparently that's what happens.

Hi David, That does indeed sound insane.
But you must've worked some magic for me as my book turned up a couple of hours ago! Sent direct from Amazon US?
Thanks again for chasing this up for me.

ARGH! Of course you're right. How can errors like this still have slipped through after revision after revision of all the exercises.... :( Thank you for pointing it out I"ll alert my publisher.

Hi David, I'm now reading through the book, and it's a pleasure :-)

But I have a question Lesson 2, creating a drummer track. In the beginning we fiddle around a little with different drummers, presets etc. But we end up with choosing Kyle playing on Max's East Bay drum kit.

But by then I have tried different presets, so which of Kyle's presets is the lesson supposed to use?

It shouldn't matter as when you choose Kyle again, you're back to the Half-pipe preset.

In any case in the following steps you customize the entire preset again so it truly shouldn't matter?

Thanks David, I can see now that I didn't quite get the concept of preset, but I think I do now :-)

Hi David. A quick question about the new book. I'm currently working through your Logic 10.4 book, and will probably be done within the next few weeks. Does the 10.5 book offer enough new information to justify buying it if you've recently completed the 10.4 one? How many chapters are very similar in content to the 10.4 one? Thanks very much :-)

Yes, I think there's a lot of new info in the 10.5 book compared to the 10.4 book. In fact it may be the biggest change in my book since I started writing it for Logic 8 !!! I have a new part on the Live Loops grid, a new chapter dedicated to handling effect and instrument plug-ins and patches, copying, moving, ordering them, saving settings and patches etc. I have a whole new chapter on sampling. A chapter on the Step Sequencer, some new ways to create creative content, integrated workflows (DMD, Step Sequencer, Live Loops grid). That also means I had to make a little bit of room so some of the content in the 10.4 book has been reduced a bit (recording, automation).

Don't get me wrong, I did keep some of the same material, so if you just went through my 10.4 book and go through the 10.5 book you'll skip some of the chapters that are pretty much the same to reach the ones that talk about the new topics.

Hope that helps!

Hi Rui,

No, the Apple Certification program was retired for Logic Pro X. That is why I decided not to include the Lesson Review questions in this edition.


Hi, David. Any particular reasons behind this decision? They still keep on requiring this kind of certificates for some jobs here in Spain :(

Hi Juan,

I have no idea what motivated the decision. If I had to guess, I would suppose that they feel their time/budget is better spent elsewhere, but other than that I truly don't know.
