Virtual instruments in Logic Pro and Pro Tools—introduction

Hi folks! David Franz here, Content Manager for the continually expanding audio channel at lynda.com. Excitement is rising here at the lynda.com HQ as we continue work on a massive rollout of audio courses that you’ll begin to see over the next several months. As part of the rollout, we’re happy to announce a new bi-weekly series about using virtual instruments.

Every two weeks for the next few months we’ll present training on how to use the virtual instruments in Logic Pro and Pro Tools. We’re starting with Virtual Instruments in Logic Pro, a multi-part course authored by gifted composer and sound designer Brian Trifon. In the introduction, Brian will cover all of the virtual instruments that are bundled with Logic Pro. It’s an impressive list of instruments and Brian will show you how to create amazing music with them, after he shows you how everything works. Check out the trailer for what’s to come in the full course, then head to theVirtual Instruments in Logic Pro table of contents to view the whole intermediate-level course.

This course will cover 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. The first instruments available now are the ES M Monophonic Synthesizer and the ES E Ensemble Synthesizer.

Check out Virtual Instruments in Logic Pro in the Online Training Library® today, and look out for new training on virtual instruments for Pro Tools and Logic Pro users coming soon!
