Your original audio file will be permanently modified. You can study sound to picture on their Music Production Diploma courses, with pro industry tutors. Logic conveniently creates a new take folder with our untuned region located at the bottom and our tuned region above. Tweak it until it sounds right to your ears. As well as creative tasks, selection-based processing is also good for more rudimentary tasks such as cleaning up the bottom end of a vocal, de-essing any offending words and tuning any wayward phrases screen 3.
Try using a drum loop at the same tempo as the original track. If you have any questions or comments about reversing audio in Logic Pro X, leave them in the comments section below! Start by loading a project that contains a lead vocal track. Hit play and tweak your placement of the reverb so it lines up perfectly with the word. To listen to the processing, simply click the region to which you want to apply the effect, then, within the Selection-based Processing window, click the speaker icon underneath the Pre-listen label. Expectations of time constraints for help are unreasonable. You now have your own reverse reverb to lead into your song. But combined with the guitar, which I isolated similarly, but in a different range; it was a great blend! On the left-hand side on the slider, the reflections are more transient, whereas moving the slider to the right creates a more rounded set of reflections.
In most situations, this tends to be a short, percussive sound like a hi-hat. Also be sure to reference Speilberg's Poltergeist! Go to the Selection-based Processing floating window and this time use column B so that we can still have easy access to our telephone effect. Selection-based Processing is a long-overdue feature that Pro Tools and Digital Performer users have enjoyed for many years, and its addition to Logic X opens up a world of experimental processing techniques. Note: If you are serious about learning real-world culinary skills the way we teach it, answer the following questions to expedite your admissions process. I settled for 8dB of Drive and a Tone setting of 6600Hz. The file opens in Logic and plays correctly.
Go back to the Selection-based Processing window and tick the Add Effect Tail option, this will ensure that Logic bounces not only the Region with the effect but also the reverb tail. Now hover the mouse pointer over the start of the region and drag the region out to the left to reveal the reverb tail. Probably somewhere between 2-5 seconds. I hope this short tutorial was helpful. Whether creating backwards crash cymbal samples in dance music production, adding secret Beatles-esque messages to your rock song, or just fooling around, you may find you want to reverse audio in Apple's Logic recording software. Symmetry and Smoothing extend the range of shapes for the pulsing effect.
Sometimes I don't mention the key combination of a command because the one I use may not be the same you use Logic's key commands can be user-defined. Plus, by rolling off the low-end on both, more sonic headroom was left of the bass and kick drum. Now that you have experienced using Selection-based Processing to create take folders, you can apply the same procedure to more off-the-wall treatments of other program material. Select the bottom take and identify the areas where the vocal tuning needs attention and simply select those areas in the tuned take. For example, you could take a synth bass line, run it through some extreme modulation effects and then comp the two takes so that the bass part alternates between the original and the effected version at quarter-note intervals. An alternative to Tremolo is to use Key Gating, if you want a sense of rhythmic interest. That should save the reverb sound as its own audio file.
It removes all the mud and dull part of the mid range, and makes the hi and low-end sound crisper and feel tighter. Logic automatically crossfades between takes to give you a relatively seamless transition between the tuned and untuned material. Screen 4: Ticking the Create New Take option in the Selection-based Processing feature will create a take folder containing the unprocessed and processed audio regions. I usually , and sub group them out to an Aux Track. Luckily, this is a non-destructive edit. The default setting is a soft auto-pan Tremolo from left to right, using a tempo-synced time division defined by Rate. Note: If you are serious about learning real-world radio production the way we teach it, answer the following questions to expedite your admissions process.
What is your area of interest? The window is divided into two halves — plug-in column A and plug-in column B — of which only one can be active. Doing so will earn you an indefinite ban. For example, the reverb tail at the end of a file can be reversed, copied, and pasted to the beginning of the file. Hit Apply, and with the new region selected return back to the Region area of the Inspector and once again tick Reverse, this time to correct the direction. Musical Space Recently I was working on a mix that had a funky busy rhythm guitar part, as well as a Rhodes with a wah-wah sound playing chordal rhythms. Another treatment that Selection-based Processing makes a breeze is adding reverse reverb to a vocal screen 2. This tutorial is endorsed by Point Blank.
With that in mind I often prefer to tune a vocal by running it through a pitch-correction plug-in with a medium response time and comping the tuned version with the untuned in a take folder, and all of this becomes faster with Selection-based Processing. Is there a way in logic to reverse the entire sustain performance in one pass? If so, then we can use Selection-based Processing to remove this. Both professionals and amateurs are encouraged to post on this subreddit. Finally, go back to the vocal channel and bypass the reverb plugin and the send. Set the Initial level to define the overall darkness, and then modify the curve characteristic to change the amount of high frequency damping. Now we have to record the reverb to its own channel so that we can manipulate it. Now use the Pre-listen function to tweak the Threshold parameter in band 4 of the Multipressor to give the required amount of high-frequency attenuation.
