I've been playing around with Logic Pro now for almost a year. And with the Arturia Experience 32 keyboard for about twice as long. I recently received the Analog labs Factor 5000 sound bank, and wanted all those sounds recordable into Logic pro for my various compositions, here is a quick howto (mostly as a reminder to myself, but hopefully helpful for others) to make it all come together...
Just released another new piece, "Irish Jiggity". This is a mixture of standard Irish folk with electronic, synths, and beats.
Just a little something I whipped up tonight between 1:00 am and 5:00 am. Turkish, Techno, a smidge Irish thrown in for good measure...
Here is a piece I composed that I have found very helpful for relaxing and staying asleep. Feedback welcomed. Enjoy!
7 new songs on the site now available for your listening pleasure. Would very much appreciate feedback from folks, how did you like the different pieces? Any requests? All available on http://www.syntheticzen.com
Both Synthetic Zen Show radio streams back online...

G minor (harmonic) for Bass guitar, Native American Wood Flute (6 hole, tuned to G minor), and Mandolin. Though only 60 seconds long, a LOT of rules and man hours went into this.

Just finished presentation for EWU Composition class, about Touch the Sound by Evelyn Glennie. It was a hit.
Just a quick note, planning when get some time, to create visualization videos of "Explore" and other works to post on Youtube. Will use tools such as Vovoid's VSXU to dynamically create music-driven visualizations. Should be fun.
Thursday we began Three voice counterpoint, beginning again with First species, but there are significantly complex differences compared to two voice.
New composition released, funky trance groove. First time using Logic Pro.
Last week finished reviewing third species counterpoint, this week we begin fourth species counterpoint at last! just 2 voices for now.
