Hi, I am
Rasheeq Rayhan
from Dhaka, Bangladesh. This lesson is for week 2 of 
Introduction To Music Production
. I will be teaching
how to preparea project in DAW (Logic Pro) using the project checklist
. The gears I will be using for this demonstration are:
A MacBook Pro computer
Logic Pro software There are a wide variety of technical specifications that need to be configuredbefore you start working in your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). Here is apreproduction checklist of the things:1.
Proper Project Name and Location2.
Digital Audio Preferencesa.
Sample Rateb.
Bit depth3.
Recording File Type4.
Hardware Settingsa.
Configure Audio Interfaceb.
System Preferences5.
Buffer SizeWhen you open Logic Pro you will see a menufrom where you can choose a template. For thepurpose of this demonstration let’s choose “EmptyProject”.After this you will be asked to create a new track.Select “Audio” and hit “create”.
Proper Project Name and Location:
After creating a project it is very important to name your file well. Have a fixedfolder on your computer where you can store all of your projects (the default location is
Macintosh HD/User/Music/Logic 
). By this you will know where things are going and it willbe easy to back up. To save your project go toFile> Save. Name the project andsave it. I have named it as “ProjectCoursera” and saved it in thedefault location.
As you work with DAW, you are not creating a single file, but a folder that includesDAW’s proprietary files, collection of assets. So, inside the folder there will be theproject file and next to that will be a folder structure that holds all of the assets.Remember that the project is not just an individual file, but the whole project folder. So,you need to keep the whole file structure together.One of the worst things you can do is save a project folder inside a project folder. The DAW will have a hard time knowing which audio files are associated with theproject file. Be very careful while creating a new project folder, put it in a new location,and name it well because you can face severe file management issue if you are not.
Digital Audio Preferences:
 The digital audio preferences include setting up the sample-rate and bit-depth. Itmay be done in the driver for interface or in the DAW.We know sound is pressure variations in the air that is continually variable. It is notdiscrete steps, but constant. Computer cannot understand that kind of information. It
