Logic Pro’s ES2 is a powerful subtractive synth with seemingly endless possibilities. A plethora of modulation options means that we can transform a bland synth patch into an evolving, exciting pad or lead. ES2’s Router, found at the bottom panel, allows us to use LFOs and envelopes to bring movement to our pathces.

In this video, Jono Buchanan dives into  ES2, to show you how to route parameters to modulators to create new musical ideas. You’ll learn how to use the LFOs and envelopes to alter properties such as pitch, filter cutoff, and more. Jono also demystifies the various parameters within the LFO and envelopes, and explores randomisation and tempo sync.
