Join Evan Sutton for an in-depth discussion in this video ES E: Basic sound sculpting with FX, part of Logic Pro X: Virtual Instruments.
- [Instructor] Alright, this is another one…of Logic's very simple, straightforward synthesizers,…but it packs a real punch.…This is ESE, and it stands for: the ensemble synth.…And this is a polyphonic synthesizer.…(synth music)…So, if you wanted to think about the ESM…as sort of a moage type sound,…you could think of ESE as almost like a Juno type sound.…And it's really very simple.…It's quite similar to the ESE in that we have…a single oscillator, (synth music)…and we have two different waves, essentially.…
We have a sawtooth. (synth music)…If we open up the filter, we hear a lot more of it.…And then we have a square wave that we can change…the pulse-width of, which changes the harmonic content.…Let's take a listen as I move this knob.…(discordant synth music)…It's quite a loud synthesizer. (synth music)…Especially when you're playing multiple notes.…Anyway, as I turn this down, (synth music)…you'll hear that things get a little bit more balanced.…
And we can also do some pulse-width modulation…so that's essentially going to be, like,…
