Hi! I'm Brian Trifon. Welcome to Virtual Instruments in Logic Pro. In this chapter, we'll be exploring the ES E synthesizer in Logic. ES E is an eight-voice, polyphonic, subtractive synthesizer, which is ideal for creating rich pads, lush chorusing melodies, and nostalgic analog textures. In this chapter we'll explore selecting a waveform for the oscillator, and then I'll show you how to use the Vibrato and Pulse Width Modulation controls. We'll follow that by exploring the lowpass filter and how to shape the sound with the Attack and Release envelope.
We'll wrap things up by thickening the sound with the built-in chorus effects. So let's hear ES E in action. This is a little musical example that has five instances of ES E creating all of the synth parts, and the drum an Apple Loop, and let's check it out. (music playing)
