Posts Tagged ‘Channel Strip’ on Logic Pro Expert

In Logic Pro and other Digital Audio Workstations, each track has its own Channel Strip. With a Channel Strip’s controls, you can alter the sound of the audio a track plays, and how the track is audibly represented in the mix as a whole. You can alter the volume, mute, solo and pan the audio of tracks, add (both stock and Audio Unit) effects plugins, change channel strip settings, and change the signal flow of the audio. By control-clicking on a Channel Strip in Logic Pro, you can choose its visible components.

I tried to create 2 pre-fade sends to separate outputs on my Universal Audio Apollo audio interface but they don’t act like I expect them to. Can you help?

A Logic Pro X Channel EQ Tutorial


As you probably know, when Logic Pro X 10.0.5 came out, both the Channel EQ and the Linear Phase EQ plug-in were updated with a new graphical user interface and new functionality.
