Learn the power of Alchemy in Logic Pro 10.6
We give you a brief introduction to the deep, immense synthesizer so you can hit the ground running.
Alchemy is an incredibly powerful synthesizer that comes pre-installed with Logic Pro. It can be easy to get lost in such a deep engine with so many presets, parameters and effects. We’re going to ease you into it, so that you can become a master of Alchemy without fear of getting lost along the way.
In this tutorial, Jono Buchanan teaches you Alchemy. You’ll learn the basic workflow of Logic Pro’s deep synthesizer and understand some of the different features that are immediately on-hand for experimentation. You’ll get familiar with the interface, morphing between patches, the arpeggiator section and the effects. Jono also shows you how to explore the vast number of presets available.
