Scott demonstrates two new FX generators—Phat FX and Step FX. He shows how to attach parameters to the X/Y matrix, as well as how to use LFOs and the step sequencer to mangle sound.
- [Narrator] Beat mangler and audio tweakers unite!…There are two new fun plugins in Logic 10.4…with your name on them.…They're called Phat FX, yes, that's spelled with the PH,…I know it's a little cheesy, but we'll take it, and Step FX.…Let's open Phat FX on our drum track.…I'm going to select the drum track, go over here, and these…are located under multi effects, so we have the two new…plugins, Phat FX and Step FX.…We'll choose Phat FX first.…
You can see, it's a big panel, and it actually contains…six different effects, all in one place,…and then a bunch of ways to control them or modulate them.…Let's talk about the effects first.…They consist of a bandpass filter, a bass enhancer,…down here, a compressor, modulation effects,…a traditional filter, and distortion panel.…So, the cool thing about Phat FX is that you can turn on…or off any of these effects, and whichever ones you decide…you want on, you can actually assign to this awesome…XY matrix and control them with this little dot.…
So let me show you how that works.…
