Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Performing and sculpting sounds with Alchemy, part of Logic Pro X New Features.
- In this movie, we'll explore the Performance section.…It's the lower part of the Alchemy interface…and the place where you can store and move…between snapshots of different states of the synth.…The Performance section is also shown by itself,…if you click the Simple tab.…Now when you call up an already established preset,…like Pulse Width Fifths, the one we're in now,…you usually get descriptions of the snapshots…that are provided for you, like we see here.…Full, Full Delay, Thin, Thin Room and so forth.…
But this isn't always the case as we'll see.…The knob controls in the middle of the Performance area…are named control one through eight.…You can see their names if you right-click on the knob…and you go under, for example, Swap With.…You can see Control1 through 8.…They're basically auto assigned,…though there is some logic to the order…in the way that they are assigned.…The first two knobs that we see,…in this case delay and reverb,…which are control knobs 1 and 5,…are usually assigned to time-based effects…
