Logic Pro Tip - Plan Ahead Header Image

I had a colleague here at my studio last week. He asked me to help him put the finishing touches on a couple of mixes that he started in Logic Pro on his own. They were due for delivery the next day, and he just wanted me to make a few quick tweaks and add some sub group processing with a few plug-ins he doesn’t’ have. He assured me he didn’t want to spend more than an hour or two on it.

Review – Exponential Audio R4

Exponential Audio R4 Review Title Image

Exponential Audio offer three fantastic sounding reverb plug-ins. Phoenixverb, R2, and Nimbus. R4 ups the ante with unprecedented features to shape the early reflections and tail portions of the reverb signal independently.

Let’s take a look at what makes R4 unique.

Secondary Modulation with EXS 24 03 Fixed LFO 2 value

I just completed a series of videos on the new Analog Strings instrument from Output and was blown away with the incredible sounding modulations created with their Flux feature. This type of function is often referred to as secondary modulation: modulating the modulator. The rhythmically complex patterns that result are very compelling. How can we emulate this sort of vibe with Logic Pro’s plug-ins?

Poll – Which Mac Do You Use to Run Logic Pro ?

logic pro x macbook

Apple’s Logic Pro developers have been hard at work. The recent 10.3 (and 10.3.1) updates are fantastic. However, as with their other “single dot” releases, the minimum OS requirements were updated. Apple’s (unofficial) policy seems to be to support one Mac OS version previous to the current one, but nothing earlier. So, with Sierra being the current Mac OS, El Capitan became the minimum OS required for Logic Pro X 10.3, just as Yosemite became the minimum OS required to run Logic Pro X 10.2.
