As one of the most popular DAWs for macOS, there is abundant Logic Pro X information.
While the software may seem complicated at first glance, thousands of people out there are willing to help you navigate your first recording sessions (and beyond).
But what is the best way to learn Logic Pro X?
Anything from playing with the software to YouTube tutorials and paid online classes can help you learn the software.
While learning every feature and function built into Logic Pro X may take a while, you will pick everything up quickly if you actively learn (while using the software).
Let’s explore some of the best ways to learn Logic Pro X.
Honestly, experience is the best teacher.
One of the best ways to navigate the complicated world of Logic Pro X is to dive into it.
You will need help understanding half the features of the software.
That’s OK—just experiment.
Read any tooltips.
Find out the impact of certain features on your recordings, etc.
Most of your Logic Pro X experience, even with help, will be spent tinkering about with settings, so you may as well get that experience in early.
If you need help with what a particular feature does (or are looking for how to do something), then YouTube is a fantastic place to start.
Thousands upon thousands of videos answer every question you could have about Logic Pro X.
These videos are all free.
There aren’t any specific YouTubers that focus exclusively on Logic Pro X.
However, if you focus on the most-viewed videos, then you should be fine.
The only downside to using YouTube is it isn’t a ‘guided’ course.
You are just looking up information as and when you need it.
You may not even know certain features exist if you exclusively use YouTube.
They can be tough to find unless you live in one of the big cities, but those larger cities will almost certainly have somewhere that offers Logic Pro X courses.
You can hunt around the various locations:
- Adult Education Centers
- Community Colleges
- Community Colleges
- Recognizing and responding to human emotions

Sometimes, you may not find a complete class for Logic Pro X. This is fine.
You can opt for one-on-one tuition instead.
It will cost a little bit more, but it is probably worth it for that personal touch.
Local classes are one of the top ways to learn Logic Pro X as you will have a real tutor watching everything you do.
They are there to answer questions.
They will help to guide you through a project.
You can join countless online classes if you don’t have local classes nearby or are looking for something a little bit cheaper.
The major benefit of online classes (as well as local classes, for that matter) is that the learning is going to be much more structured.
Somebody will guide you through Logic Pro X from a beginner’s perspective.
You will learn how each function works and how to put them to practical use.
The downside of online classes is that you only sometimes interact with the tutor, which means that the cost is a little bit lower, but it also means that the questions you have may not get answered quickly (if at all).
