How to use this book and CD xii · Project 10 is concerned with the business of producing a readable score and parts from the Score and Layout section of Logic. Here, we use a previous project, number 6, as a basis for the work. · Projects 11 ­ 17 are solely concerned with the business of creative audio editing. These include such tasks as time stretching, pitch shifting and quantizing. All the projects follow a similar pattern and begin with a list of Musical objectives and Logic skills. This is followed by a list of instructions headed Preparation. The first two instructions are always the same. In Project 5, for example: 1. 2. 3. 4. From the CD, copy the folder named project5 to your computer. (This folder contains all the files you will need for the project.) On your computer, create a folder called mywork5 or something similar in which to save your work. (This is the folder in which any work you create will be saved in Logic song file format.) From the project5 folder, open template ­ templt5. (This is a specially prepared template con- taining the Tracks, Objects, and Logic Environment ready to work on.) In your new mywork5 folder, save the template as myproj5 or something similar. (Everything you do in this project, from now on, will be saved here.) Next comes the assignment that contains an imaginary commission and scenario for the project. For example, the assignment for Project 5 begins like this: `OK, here's the scenario. A computer game company has commissioned you to compose the music for a scene in their latest historical title set in Elizabethan times. The piece must run for a minimum of three minutes.' Each project contains a series of `takes.' This is usually an instruction to record something in Logic. At the beginning of each take is a list of settings for the Arrange window. For example, Project 5, Take 1 looks like this.
