Video Tutorial – Using Waves Enigma
In a new series of Waves video tutorials, Eli Krantzberg takes a look at the Waves Enigma modulation plugin and uses it on drums, background vocals and lead guitar.
Part One – Introduction To Waves Enigma
Logic Pro X has plenty of great sounding and intuitive modulation effects plug-ins. Chorus, delay, flanger, phaser, et cetera, they’re all there.
So what makes the Waves Enigma multi-dimensional modulation plugin so special?
Waves Enigma creates notches in the signal, somewhat as flangers and phasers do, but with some added twists. There is a reverb-type processor, a feedback loop, an LFO, filters in various places, and some hard-to-describe interactive controls. It’s like having a very complex phaser/flanger with a reverb/feedback network with sophisticated filtering plus some modulation. All of these are optional, and of course, this is what gives you so much flexibility. Use the plugin in modest amounts – either by inserting it directly on a track in Logic Pro X or by using an Aux Send – and you’ll get interesting and complex, yet subtle modulation-style effects.
Hear how the notch and filter sections of this multi purpose modulation design plug-in are used to generate everything from wild to subtle modulation style effects:
