Here’s what I did tonight.
I watched the MacProVideo free 25 minute series of videos about Logic Pro 8. They were actually very good. You can’t go into detail in 25 minutes, but you get a nice taste of what’s new in the interface, and what you could do, so I really recommend watching those instructional video snippets. You need to register, but that’s all. I expect them to release more paid instruction videos later this year.
Then I started reading the online manuals for Logic Studio, they are available here as PDF files. The main Logic Pro 8 manual is over 1000 pages long, so I just read parts here and there, and saved the PDF file on my laptop, so next time I have spare time, I could read a line here and there.
The massive package will have all the documentation in book format, as well, but there’s something about doing a find across the manuals for let’s see checking out if the folder handling is different from Logic 7 or not. All I could say so far is that there are so, so many refinements in the UI so I’m more than positively astounding. This will be a very good UI to work with — stated even if I have not touched the application myself yet.
