Computer forensics is used to find legal evidence in computers or storage devices. Although this course won't teach you how to become a digital forensics detective, it will cover the basics of this growing (and exciting) technical field. Author Jungwoo Ryoo reviews the basics: the goals of computer forensics, the types of investigations it's used for, a forensic investigator's typical toolset, and the legal implications of this type of work. Then he'll show how to prepare for an investigation; acquire data "live" while the system is running, statically from a hard drive, or from a remote machine; make sure data is kept in its original state with software and hardware write blockers; analyze the data; and create a report of your findings. Jungwoo uses a combination of open-source and commercial software, so you'll be able to uncover the information you need with the tools that are in your budget.

Songwriting in Logic Pro [Lynda]

Songwriting in Logic Pro is an in-depth course geared toward musicians and songwriters who are starting to use Logic Pro to write, record, and mix their songs. There are two groups of techniques: one to get your demo ideas down quickly, and another to polish rough ideas into songs worth presenting to your band mates, producer, publisher, or label.
Author Todd Howard takes you through his creative process in real time, starting with an empty project based on one of Logic's prebuilt templates. Then he records the initial song idea and creates a groove with Drummer. He works on the lyric and then lays down additional tracks—a driving bassline, acoustic guitar, and some scratch vocals—and builds out the arrangement with layered keyboard parts. After using improvisation to create a bridge section, he adds effects for a layered and nuanced song. Next he shows techniques for editing and mixing the track, using EQ, compression, reverb, and delay. Finally, Todd shows how to bounce down the track and share it with the world.
