Prompt

30 edits in 30 seconds. Using the material you recorded for HW02T, compose an original sound piece that is 30 seconds long and contains at least 30 edits. This exercise is meant to facilitate you becoming more familiar with the functions of the arrange window learned on Jan 27. Be creative and be sure to develop a logical, complete composition (beginning, middle, end). When you are done, bounce it to an MP3 file for inclusion in your portfolio.

Write a 100 word reaction to completing the project. What differences did you notice between logic and other DAWs you have used? How did this affect your work process? How do you feel about the finished project?

Response

Visually, Logic is very appealing. However, Logic relies far to much on the presumption that the user has memorized all of the program's short-cut keys. It is nearly impossible to function within the software otherwise. Otherwise it is very similar to other DAWs. At first it reminded me of Garage Band in how limited the software appeared to be. Nevertheless, once I understood how to make it work, it worked very well. This affected my work progress by slowing me down when I first began to learn the software. After I had learned the software, it helped me to speed up. I feel very content with my project, though I do not like how rushed it had to be.
