Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Modulation rate and depth, part of Get in the Mix with Logic Pro.
…Delay effects based on a changing delay introduce…a whole new layer of interest to your mix.…A changing delay is an ear-grabbing alternative to the…fixed delay and it has an intriguing side effect.…Changing a delay also changes the pitch.…The slow modulation of delay time that is common in…so many effects introduces a slight detuning of the track.…A moving delay leads to a wobbling pitch.…We have to be careful here because an out…of tune track can sour any production.…But if the delay modulation is slow, the pitch bending might be a subtle positive.…
It can sound human and expressive.…On the other hand, if you want an aggressively altered pitch pattern as part…of a special effect Don't hold back, and let a modulating delay do the job.…So let's listen to what the modulation section can do.…We'll start here with the modulation rate and depth, and cover modulation…shape in the next video.…Rate controls how quickly the delay time…parameter within the effects device is changed.…You'll find mix situations when you want to sweep the delay time…
This course covers 23 techniques for improving your mixes with compressors, processors, EQ and filters, delay, and modulation. The first chapter covers compression and dynamics processing, including how to even out vocal performances and add punch to drum tracks. The second chapter goes into EQ and filtering techniques, such as creating complimentary EQ curves and EQ-ing FX returns. Last, the authors explore delay and modulation techniques, including using long delay on key lyrics and creating flanger and phaser effects.
