Hey, I'm Brian Trifon, and welcome to Virtual Instruments in Logic Pro. In this chapter, we'll take a look at ES P. ES P is an incredible-sounding eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer that emulates the classic polysynth sounds of the '80s. ES P is great for a variety of sounds, particularly thick analog brass sounds, epic leads, and fat basses. First, we'll take a look at balancing the oscillator levels, then tweaking the lowpass filter with the Key Follow function. Next, I'll show you how to use the ADSR envelope to shape the volume of the sound, as well as how to use it to modulate the filter cutoff.
Then we'll take an in-depth look on how to use the Vibrato/Wah LFO to modulate either the pitch or the filter. We'll wrap things up by adding chorus and overdrive to thicken and saturate your sound. Let's check out a musical example. This has five instances of ES P, creating all the bass and melody and sounds, and Logic's Ultrabeat for the drums. So check it out! (music playing) So let's get started with ES P.
