Watch Brian Lee White and Alex Case perform advanced audio adjustments inside Logic Pro, while they guide you through their reasoning in the built-in video window.
- Hi, and welcome to Get in the Mix with Logic Pro. I'm Brian Lee White. In this course, Lynda author Alex Case and I will help you take deep dives into techniques for improving your mixes, using compressors and dynamics processors, EQ and filters, delay and modulation effects. Specifically, we'll demonstrate techniques including: How to use compression to add punch and sustain to drums. How to utilize bus and parallel compression.
How to create complementary EQ curves between several instruments. How to effectively use long delays on key lyrics. How to utilize modulation parameters, such as rate, depth and shape. How to creatively use chorus, phaser and flange effects. To explain the techniques, we'll be using innovative hands-on learning exercises called Get In The Mix files, where we literally show you the techniques, right inside your Logic project file, using the built-in video window.
If you're not at your Logic rig, then you can simply watch the video about the techniques in the Lynda dot com player. So let's get started with Get in the Mix with Logic Pro.
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.
