Logic, Theory Books by Rusty Cutchin

NewBooks-Feat5-sqrUpdate: Both books now available online.
Flame Tree Publishing will release two books by Rusty Cutchin for their Everyday Guides Made Easy series this spring. The first, Apple Logic Pro Basics, is due in April. The second book, Music Theory for Computer Musicians, will be published in May. Cutchin brings his history as musician, recording engineer, and producer to these guides. He has been an author, contributor, or editor of over 35 books in the music performance, production, and history fields as well as an editor with three national music-tech magazines.

ALPB-RCApple Logic Pro Basics provides an overview of the most important features in Apple’s flagship music-software production suite. “Logic Pro X has evolved over the years to become the most professionally capable yet easy to use software suite for composers and producers,” said Cutchin. “It’s fully integrated and stylistically compatible with Apple’s other pro-level applications for creative people. It comes with a giant library of sounds and multiple composing, editing and sound-shaping tools.” The overview provided in Apple Logic Pro Basics can be a valuable aide in getting up and running quickly with this powerful, feature-rich program.

MTCM-RCMusic Theory for Computer Musicians takes musicians and producers who have already begun creating productions “in the box” back to basics, exposing creators to the fundamentals of melody, harmony, and rhythm.  “And Logic is actually a great program for helping you expand your understanding of music theory,” Cutchin continued. “It includes a sophisticated score editor, which can help those wishing to learn more about how music is traditionally structured and built—using all those basic elements that are examined in the music theory book.”

Both books, like others in the series, are full of attractive and helpful illustrations that help make the learning process appealing. Whether you’re a beginner, novice, or pro, you’ll find something to learn or review about music production and theory in these two titles.
