Join author Brian Trifon as he shows how to improve music and audio productions using virtual instruments in Logic Pro. This course tours the program's virtual instruments, including the ES2 hybrid synthesizer, Sculpture physical modeling synthesizer, EFM1 FM synthesizer, the EVOC 20 vocoder, the Ultrabeat drum synthesizer, and the EXS24 sampler, and shows how to achieve various effects with each instrument's parameters. The course also covers working with oscillators and filters, understanding signal flow, creating custom synthesizer patches, adding effects, synthesizing speech, creating a library of custom sound samples, and much more.
Virtual Instruments with Logic Pro will be updating on a monthly basis, eventually covering all the virtual instruments in the application. Look for the latest movies here and on the lynda.com blog.
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)
