Ever wonder how different the Logic Compressor models really are? Mastering engineer Holger Lagerfeldt decided to answer that question. His findings are now available in a succinct, yet in-depth PDF.
Here’s something that is 100% transparent, uses almost 0 CPU and in certain cases, can save you hundreds of dollars in repairs, downtime and even worse, hearing damage. Cerberus Audio Ice9 Automute is instanciated on one’s master bus and acts as if one had fuses installed in one’s studio monitors.

Just imagine you can have the power of 1073 EQ’s with the SCHEP 73 emulations throughout your entire mix. Gotta love that!.
We had a Logic related question come in recently from listener George Majerus via the pro tools expert podcast. It’s a subject that I’ve seen come up over and over in various forums and discussions. Thank you, George, for asking about time stamps and bouncing in mono. Let’s explore the answers:
Most Logic users rely on the Channel EQ for basic tasks. But which third party EQ plug-ins do you reach for when you want to add something a little different or unique to the sound of your tracks? Find out which ones our logic pro experts like to use when they want to add some special sauce to their mixes.
It has only been very recently that the phase shifter has been rediscovered as the great effect it really is. There has been a resurgence with new versions and re-issues from boutique as well as the old guard pedal makers, In the past year, we have also seen a number of plug in developers offer their take on the phase shifter. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few of my favourites.
Hoo boy... my spidey senses are already tingling as Logic users the world over wince at the title of this post. But I'm standing my ground here:
I prefer Flex Pitch Over Melodyne For Pitch Editing in Logic.
I am not a keyboard player. Sure, I play a little. I have a little bit of technique. And I know what notes to play and when to play them. But I don’t have the piano technique to execute my ideas at fast tempos. Enter Logic’s tempo sets as a convenient way to switch between a slower part entry tempo, where I can play in my parts with the timing and feel that I want, and a faster playback tempo, where the parts are played back at full speed.
In the first part of this article, we looked at creating an Articulation ID set for a third party library from scratch. Creating articulations on the Articulations pane, and setting the transformation in the Output Pane of the Articulation Set Editor were the first steps, making this articulation set usable for editing articulations after notes were entered. In this article, I’ll show you how to set up create and customize key switch assignments for real-time articulation switching, how to use score symbols for articulation switching, and how to make your Articulation ID set portable between projects.
In this Expert Tutorial, contributor Chris Vandeviver walks through dicing up and creating your own electronic kits by using Flex Time to quickly break up drum loops, exporting the samples back into the Project Browser, and dragging and dropping the samples right into an Empty kit.
The elusive ingredient we all always seem to be searching for is the perfect emulation of analog circuit components and characteristics. Hear for yourself if True Iron by Kazrog fills the need.
In this post, I’ll walk you through the steps involved in creating a basic set of Articulation IDs for the Chris Hein Ensemble String Library. The same principles apply however to any third-party multi articulation based software instrument.
In this video, I’m going to take two different instances of Halls of Fame, run serially on a return bus, to create an interesting and unique vocal reverb. By trimming the start and end points, combining two different IR’s is a fun and creative way to create a unique vocal reverb space.
Plug-ins are the hot topic of the day. Andy Cherna digs deep into the psyche of Logic users, and offers some thoughts on how to get the most out of what you have.
At first glance, Channel EQ looks like a standard surgical “Frequency - gain - width” based multiple band equalizer. While it does do this and does it very well, it is also capable of a lot more. Take a look at some of these tips to brush up on your Channel EQ chops.
Two of the greatest features in Logic Pro X are Apple Loops, and the ability to easily convert them to EXS24 Instruments. Convert to New Sampler Track is one of my favourite features and a powerful way to use the software sampler in this DAW to dramatically reshape loops. In this video I'll walk you through the process using one of Logic's stock Apple Loops.
In this Expert Tutorial, contributor Chris Vandeviver shows how to make the most of Smart Tempo.
In the first part of this series I looked at how to use Drummer’s Feel knob, found on the Details page of Logic’s Drummer Editor, to establish either an ahead of the beat or behind the beat feel for Logic’s Drummer regions. But what if you want to alter the feel of only specific elements within the drum groove? Although this isn’t doable directly from the Drummer editor, fortunately, it is achieved relatively easily using Drummer’s Convert to MIDI function.
Life is too short for bad tea. I want logic pro expert to be lean and mean, with only great content on it. The first step is eliminating the least viewed types of content. The second is including more of what you want to see, hear, and watch. Less bad tea, more good tea. Let us know what that is.
By now you have most likely noticed the new format for logic-pro-expert. We’ve got big things planned for the future. Please help me welcome the new logic-pro-expert team!
The idea of “push” and “pull” with regards to pop based drum grooves refers to playing slightly ahead or behind the beat, in order to impart a slightly different feel to the music. Discover how the Feel knob on the Details page of Logic’s Drummer is used to control this aspect of the groove.
In this free tutorial, Logic Pro Expert contributor Chris Vandeviver demonstrates the many options available for exporting audio out of Logic Pro X.
