Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding movement and texture with Alchemy's advanced modulation and filters, part of Logic Pro X New Features.
- Whatever your sound source combination is…on the top section of Alchemy,…you'll always want to give your sound…some motion to be musically interesting.…We're talking about how a note starts and stops…and how it might change volume or timbre over time…and even move repetitively.…In synthesis terms, we call this modulation.…The middle section of Alchemy…is where we can deal with the modulation…aspects of our synthesis.…From simple note triggered envelopes…to multi-stage envelope generators…to LFOs and sequencing.…
Let's see how we can attach some parameters…to these types of modulation.…The way to tell immediately if a parameter…is being modulated is when you see…an orange ring around the parameter.…In this case, the only knob with an orange ring…around it is the master volume.…When we click on the knob to turn it blue,…we can see down here what's being targeted by the knob.…In this case, we see AHDSR1.…Which is our AHDSR envelope.…
If you've used envelopes before,…you might be familiar with ADSR envelopes.…That stands for Attack Decay Sustain and Release.…
Join Scott Hirsch as he dives into Logic X's powerful new synth workstation, Alchemy. From there, you'll be guided through all the key features available in the newest feature set (10.2.1), including enhancements to Drum Machine Designer, new arrangement marker techniques, and techniques to back up and share your Logic projects with the outside world using the groundbreaking new integration with Gobbler and Apple Connect. Your workflow will be improved creatively as well, with a look at new overlapping recording modes for both cycle and non-cycle modes. Scott also explores to the ten new drummer personalities and Drum Machine Designer, as well as the improved Retro Synth and the brand-new Mellotron software instrument, powerful MIDI editing and sequencer features in the revamped Piano Roll Editor, and the enhanced Mixer (now with VCA faders and easy viewing of your Track Stack components). You'll see these and many more enhancements that make Logic Pro 10.1, 10.2, and 10.2.1 instant, must-have upgrades.
