Logic Pro Tutorial – Secondary Modulation with EXS 24

Secondary Modulation with EXS 24 03 Fixed LFO 2 value

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.

Using the Touch Bar in Logic Pro X 10.3 without Having a Touch Bar


The good news is that the brand new Logic Pro X 10.3 update provides super cool implementations for the Touch Bar. The bad news is that you need one of those brand new MacBook Pros that come with a Touch Bar … or do you? In this article, I show how you can still enjoy the loveliness of Touch Bar functionality in Logic Pro X 10.3, even if you don’t have a real Touch Bar (yet).

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. It is the culmination of “clean” and “character” reverbs rolled into one easy to use reverb plug-in that does everything you need and didn’t know you needed from reverb. Let’s take a look at what makes R4 unique.

Review – Eventide Fission

Every once in a while a new plug-in comes out that really does something, well, new! And Eventide Fission is one of them. I have had the great pleasure of being able to give it a spin, and it is fantastic. The only thing that comes even a little bit close to doing what it does within Logic Pro X’s suite of built-in plug-ins is the Enveloper.

And only just barely.
