Arpeggiators are a good way to create intricate sounding lead patches and melody patterns. They can also be paired with some software synthesizers and if done correctly you will be able to create and program some memorable basslines and lead sounds. Understanding the process and basics is the key and once that has been established the sonic possibilities are endless. Familiarising the tools that are available as an add-on in your software and using that to create any sound of your choice must be a practice everyone should get used to. Let's look at Logic Pro X's inbuilt ES2 and create some good sounding patches and we will also pair these patches with some delays and reverbs.
In this lesson you will learn to:
Take a simple chord progression and create an intricate sounding patch with effects
Use ES2 and the very basic steps you can take to immediately get a good sound
Use Logic Pro X's in-built arpeggiator and set the parameters as per your taste and style
Use LFO's to modulate different parameters and give your patch that movement and dynamic fluidity.
