Part of Logic Pro X For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Productive creators will tell you that a big part of their success depends on their creative mindset. Here are some tips to develop a productive and creative mindset:

  • Work in these five phases: composing, recording, arranging, editing, and mixing. It’s best to keep these phases in order because they build on each other. For example, mixing before you’ve recorded everything is like putting the roof on a house before the frame is complete.

  • Finish your projects. You’ll get a confidence boost by finishing projects that you start. Set yourself up to win by starting projects that you can complete quickly.

  • Start projects with specific purposes. Here are some examples of projects you can start:

    • Learn a tool or editor.

    • Create a short loop, groove, or riff.

    • Compose a full song, composition, or remix an existing song.

    • Build a project template, preset, or patch.

    • Collaborate with a partner or client.
