Jono Buchanan is back with another Logic Tips video, this time teaching you all about the AutoFilter in Logic Pro X. Filtering works the same way as EQ, removing frequencies in a sound that are perhaps unwanted.  By using modulation options, like the LFO, built into AutoFilter, you can add movement to the frequency attenuation and create rhythmic sequences of sound shaping. The Cutoff and Resonance parameters are the main controls for achieving this technique; Jono breaks it all down in the video above.
