How to get weird and experimental with Flex Time editing in Logic Pro X
Our Logic Tips video tutorial shows you how to get sonically creative with Logic Pro X’s Flex Time feature.
Last week’s Logic Tips video dived into Flex Time, a highly useful tool in Logic Pro X to alter the timing of your audio. In this week’s tutorial, MusicTech Expert Jono Buchanan shows us how to get creative with Flex Time using Logic Pro’s built-in library of samples, Apple Loops. Although some may be reluctant to use this library, due to it being accessible to every other Logic user, Jono shows how to make these sounds your own using interesting time-warping effects. “This is a sound designers dream”, he says in the video above.
