macProVideo Release Education Plugin for Logic Pro X

Video training just took a revolutionary step forward thanks to the pioneering minds at macProVideo.com! They've just released the world's first Tutorial Player Plugin for Logic Pro X.  

macProVideo.com announces the release of an educational DSP plugin designed to help audio producers learn software and music production skills, directly inside of Logic Pro X. This new plugin, called the macProVideo Player, is a 64-bit Audio Units plugin designed specifically for Logic Pro X and other 64-bit Audio DAWs.

This new plugin can be inserted into any channel strip in Logic Pro X. Once enabled, the plugin provides direct access to a full curriculum of courseware created exclusively by macProVideo to help users learn fundamental skills in audio production, including recording, mixing, mastering, and using the instruments and DSP effects in Logic Pro.

According to Founder and CEO, Martin Sitter, "More than just an education company, macProVideo is also a technology company that innovates. We don't just teach technology, we practice technology, seriously. With our new Logic Pro X plugin, we're taking audio education to the place where you make music - your DAW."

The macProVideo Player plugin for Logic Pro X provides access to the company's extensive library of audio software and workflow skills courses. Users can follow along as professional instructors demonstrate how to use Logic Pro in production studio environments. Because the plugin inserts into any track in Logic Pro X, there's no need to open a web browser to launch the company's website before finding tutorials of interest. The result is quicker learning, directly inside the Logic Pro X software itself.

In addition to their ever-expanding library of Logic Pro X courses, the new plugin also provides fast access to macProVideo's full online courseware library, including over 25,000 tutorials for Native Instruments, Moog, Maschine, Akai, iZotope, Autotune, Waves, Rob Papen, and dozens of other audio synth, plugin, and software applications.

The macProVideo.com experience looks and feels great directly inside your favorite DAW! (Logic Pro X!)

Some macProVideo software facts:

  • The N.E.D.i Tutorial Player App (RIP) was one of the first 500 apps released for iOS when the iTunes App Store was opened to developers.
  • The macProVideo Player App (N.E.D.i's big brother) was the first Universal Tutorial-Video App for iPad. 
  • macProVideo created the world's first Educational App Publishing System (AppDesigner.com), and has published over 1,500 Educational Apps to iOS, Mac Os, Android, and Windows 8.

Just used this in Logic X. So good! It totally eliminates the issue of switching between windows while trying to practically follow along.

This is a wonderful idea that has never occured to me. But I now realize how much more practical it is to have the educational material in the right place. Before I have used more than one computer, or an iPad, to be more practical. But this is way better.

Hi what are the system requirements for this plugin, regarding OS, and Logix X version. I have a mackintosh OSX 10.7.4 running Logic X with little to no issue (the plist minimum version has been altered), but this plugin fails the AU manager, says cannot Open the plugin component. The Component file resides in the correct place. Maybe I have to upgrade to 10.8 before using this.
Great idea, and great plugin spares the computer resources of a web browser when working/learning the DAW,
Rounik
Hi LargerLife,

I believe the latest version of OS X 10.8.x is required.

We'd recommend the latest version of logic too:
Logic 10.0.1 which is fully 64-bit compatible.

(the plug-in doesn't work with Logic 9 or previous versions).

Hope this helps :)
Stonzthro
This is a great idea and it works perfectly! Thanks!
Yore
Well I have some questions and I'm not totally into this yet.
1) Using it as plug in, means using CPU from my Mac when I need it to my music making plug ins.
2) If it was a stand alone, wouldn't the CPU be better balanced as it would be running outside Logic ?
3) Does this thing work with the downloaded tutorials too ? I still rather buy just what I want than have it all on monthly pass
4) When you say RIP on iOS, does that mean that I can't access my tutorials anymore on iPad ?

Thanks
Rounik
Hi Yore, I'll do my best to answer your questions:
1) It does... but rather than have Safari to watch the online videos while working in Logic, this loads only the video player into the plugin.
Also, you can bypass or remove the plugin from the channels strip anytime you wish!

2) Sure. If you want to run the web player in Safari then you can :)
In my tests I haven't noticed extra resources being used when watching videos inside Logic.

3) No, this is the online web player. However, if you've purchased a download tutorial you actually can access that course through the online web player :) - so you can still use it!

4) No. We publish as many tutorials as apps for iOS as we can. You can also download the free macProVideo or AskVideo app for iOS which gives you the ability to stream and download tutorials to your iOS device. (NEDi was the old version of the app... hence it is RIP).

Hope this helps & do download the plugin (free) and try it out :)

Best,
Rounik

Perfect for the new plugin player.

Is there any way to set it so I only see my own downloads? As is, If not, it takes up more time just trying to find my tutorials than it would if I just loaded N.E.D.

Thanks,

Suuport for all DAWS, including 32-bit and OSX 10.6.x would be awesome, too ! ! !

Yes G.F.,

You can find all your purchased tutorials under Account > Purchased Courses

Cheers! :)
