Headphone mixes can be reasonably straight forward, or they can involve complex routing. In large tracking sessions, you might need eight or more separate headphone mixes for multiple performers all playing together. Here is a way to create up to twelve individual headphone mixes (hardware permitting) while still leaving up to eleven of your Channel Strip Send slots available for effects sends.
Getting to where you want to go is an art form in Logic. There are so many ways to navigate the timeline, that the options can be paralyzing. Here I’ll look at some of my favourite ways of moving the playhead around Logic, without touching the mouse.
Follow along in this video as I capture the feel of an apple loop and then apply it to a MIDI bass part. And then vice versa. I’ll show you how to take the timing and feel of the MIDI performance, and apply that to the Apple Loop.
Every DAW has built in EQ plug-ins, and Logic offers many. The Channel EQ is a workhorse, capable of considerable flexibility with regards to how frequencies are boosted or attenuated. Logic’s single band EQ is a competent purpose designed multi-function single band variation for the times when multi-band EQ isn’t necessary. However, what about vintage analog style EQs? Read on to learn about what Logic has to offer.
Deciding how long a reverb tail to use in your mixes encompasses a lot of variables. What is the tempo of the song? How busy are the parts? Are there a lot of open spaces between phrases, or are they densely packed together? Do you want to convey a sense of an intimate closer space, or a larger distant space? These are just some of the considerations that play an important role in communicating the intended emotion of the music. In this video I use Logic’s ChromaVerb with tempo synced decay and pre-delay values, to create a lush enveloping reverb on a lead vocal focused pop ballad.
Creating compelling chord charts is not something limited to the select few Logic gurus blessed with score editor chops. You don’t need to be a notation expert to put together nice looking lead sheets.
In this video, I’m going to show you a fun little workflow that allows you to create interesting and original bass sounds quickly and simply, with minimal fuss.
A While back I did a Logic Abecedarian here on logic pro expert. Twenty-six posts on Logic, each focusing on a topic relating to a letter of the alphabet. A few years have gone by, and many of the posts did not survive the transition to the revamped site format. Plus, Logic has come a long way in the ensuing years! It’s time for a fresh up to date set of Logic Pro X From A to Z posts. With a new team in place; it’s time for new subject matter and perspectives.
