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, and welcome to Virtual Instruments in Logic Pro. In this course, we'll look at how to create and use sounds and get the most out of the virtual instruments in Logic, so that you can take your synthesis and music- making skills to the next level. The virtual instruments we'll be covering in this course are ES M, a great monophonic synth for creating punchy base sounds and focused leads; ES E, an ensemble synthesizer that's amazing for creating chorusing lush pads; ES P, a polyphonic synth perfect for creating thick analog brass sounds; ES1, one of my favorite synths in Logic-- it's amazing for creating huge bass sounds without much hassle; EFM1, an excellent, simplified frequency-modulation synthesizer, which can recreate the popular FM sounds from the '80s, as well as a large range of bell-like and metallic textures; EVOC 20, a great vocoder and polyphonic synthesizer, perfect for creating craft work and Daft-Punk-like singing robot sounds; ES2, a full featured hybrid synth, perfect for complex and powerful leads and basses; EXS24, a full-featured sampler with an extensive library of realistic, multi-sampled instruments; EVB3, an accurate emulation of the Hammond B3 organ; EVP88, an incredible emulation of the Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and Hohner electric pianos; EVD6, a realistic emulation of the Hohner D6 clavinet; Sculpture, a physical modeling synthesizer capable of realistically emulating most string, wind, and percussion instruments, but also an incredible tool for designing unique organic textures that no real physical instrument can produce; and finally, Ultrabeat, an amazing drum machine, sampler, polyphonic synthesizer, and step sequencer-- a monster for creating drum sounds and programming beats.
I'll show you how to create and edit great sounds using all of the virtual instruments that ship with Logic Pro, and I'll play you samples of each instrument in action by way of short songs I have written for the course. Along the way, I'll be giving you tips and techniques for getting the most out of Apple's incredible suite of software instruments. Now let's get started with Virtual Instruments in Logic Pro.
