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.
Let's take at the global electric piano modeling parameters in EVP88. So I'm going to open up the hood. Then up here I can choose what our electric piano model is. EVP88 models ten Fender Rhodes pianos, four different Wurlitzer, and one Hohner electric piano. So I can scroll through those models here. So I can listen to them. Each one reacts a little bit differently. (music playing) So hear some of the Wurlitzers. That one's nice. (music playing) We've got this soft Wurlitzer here, and there is a couple more, and here is the Hohner model. (music playing) It's one of my favorites. And then there are a few others in here.
So in addition to selecting the model, you can also adjust the polyphony of the entire instrument. So right now it's set to 16 voices, but I can set this all the way to 88 voices. Here I have a fine-tuning adjustment, so I can tune the entire instrument plus or minus 50 cents. So now that we've looked through the piano models, in the next video let's explore customizing our electric piano using the model parameters.
