Creative Techniques in Logic Pro: Producer Insights

  • Slice a loop up by transients to give you separate usable sounds in the EXS24. 
  • Use sidechain compression to add dynamics to your percussion and fill the gaps between kicks. 
  • Bonus Tip: Use two Channel EQ’s to look at your kick and bass frequencies at the same time. From here you can make cut’s so that each has room to breathe, depending on which aspect you want to be the focus in the track.
