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.
That brings us to the end of Virtual Instruments in Logic Pro, and I want to thank you for joining me as we explored the many musical possibilities of Logic's instruments. You're probably wondering where you should go next, and I have a couple recommendations for you. Take a look at some of the other audio courses in the lynda.com Online Training Library, such as Logic Pro 9 Essential Training, Remixing a Song in Logic Pro, and Foundations of Audio: EQ and Filters. Also, don't forget about the Logic Pro help document in the Help menu. You can resolve most common questions and problems about Logic's instruments with the help features. The Logic Pro help documents are a comprehensive guide and are especially useful for the charts and historical background they provide about the instruments. Finally, I suggest setting time aside to experiment. One thing I like to do is to explore the presets and methodically reverse-engineer and reconstruct the settings I like. Doing this allows you to start building a repertoire of synthesis knowledge and common practices for creating various types of sounds. These skills and techniques will translate to most other synthesizers and virtual instruments, and you'll be able to learn them even faster.
Lastly, have fun making sounds and music with Logic's virtual instruments.
