Learn how to thicken your audio with modulation in Logic Pro X
In this video tutorial, Jono Buchanan demonstrates the power of Logic Pro X’s modulation effects.
How many times have you created a synth or recorded an instrument that sounds great, but just isn’t ‘thick’ enough? It lacks that width and depth that you so often hear in classic recordings – how do you fix this? Logic Pro X‘s built-in effects can work wonders for your music, it just might take a little experimentation with the right ones.
In this week’s Logic Pro Tips video, MusicTech expert Jono Buchanan shows you how Logic’s built-in modulation effects can add a new dimension to your sounds. He explores the detuning effects that you can add with Chorus, Ensemble, Flanger and Phaser plug-ins, in which you’ll hear your audio double-up and move around the stereo field.
