Integrated in Logic Pro X, Flex Time allows you to expand or compress the length of any audio recordings. This is extremely useful for tightening up a musical performance, aligning audio tracks (like vocal harmonies or rhythm guitars), and even for sound design purposes. In this music-driven course, musician, engineer and educator Joshua Carney covers everything you need to master this "flexible" audio editing feature.
Joshua starts by showing you the basics of Flex Time. You learn about the different Flex Time algorithms, and you discover which one to choose for best result, depending on your audio material. Using lots of varied musical examples, from rock guitars to electronic loops, to keyboards, Joshua shows you all the best ways to quantize, slice and align audio without losing the feel of the original performance. You learn the difficult art of quantizing live multitrack drums, you discover how to align vocal tracks, and you even learn how to use Flex Time for sound design effects.
So join Joshua Carney in this course, and get ready to flex you Logic's muscles! This course is a must view for every Logic users!
Josh strikes again! Another fabulous series by Joshua Carney. He has a real talent for making any and all material Logic-related easy to understand and engaging to follow. No convoluted explanations, no unnecessary information, plenty of examples: Logic-learning gold.

Dude, you are awesome! You used great examples for each instrument, kept the videos concise and not too detailed but enough to learn how to use it. I love you're teaching style too. Thanks a bunch for a time well spent.

Clear, concise and packed with terrific insights. Possibly the best tutorial Iâ€™ve seen.

Great course overall. Very detailed explanations.
Having an additional video focusing on Q reference problems with drum editing would have been interesting too. But this is not a drum editing lesson.

I believe this is Joshuaâ€™s first course on this site but I recognised the voice as one of the best and most informative Logic Pro youtuberâ€™s out there.
This is a thorough and entertaining course on this subject. Flextime isnâ€™t something I use very often so I tend to struggle when when I need it because of that. So I searched macprovideo for a course and this one popped up that I hadnâ€™t seen and it gave me all the info I needed and more.
There are a lot of creative ideas here too that I know I will find useful and that I hadnâ€™t realised this tool could be used for. A great course.
