Tighten up your grooves in Logic Pro X with Flex Time
In this video, we explore Logic Pro X’s audio warping functionalities.
When you’re working with audio clips, you may often find that certain elements don’t quite glue together. A kick and bass guitar might be slightly off in a section, or in Jono Buchanan’s case in our new Logic Pro Tips video, a snare and keys part may not be sitting as tightly as you like. Logic Pro X features Flex Time, which helps you “elasticise” your audio, as Jono describes in the video. With the Flex Time feature, you can either lock grooves in to be perfectly in sync or you may want to add a bit of swing, which Flex Time will allow you to do, too.
