Learn how to recreate the Benny Benassi "Cinema" chord stab synth using Logic's ES2. Richard Lainhart gives in-depth explanations for the settings and sceenshots to help you follow along.


(实际上有三个不同版本的功能在跟踪这声音,我们将是音响短,哽咽和弦刺的声音,在0:29出现在视频,之前歌声,但没有低音线,这听起来像一个不同的轨道。)我们将使用这个逻辑的ES 2。让我们开始吧。

第1步 - 设置逻辑项目


Create a Software Instrument Track


Insert an ES2 on the track

Default ES2 interface

第2步 - 分析声音


Piano Roll with pattern of Cinema stabs


第3步 - 创建声音

OK,这里的我的ES 2版本的补丁:

ES2 Settings for Benassi's Cinema


  • First, note that we have all three oscillators enabled. 1 & 3 are set to sawtooth waves, which gives us our basic buzzy sound. Osc 2 is set to rectangular sync. Oscillator 1 is set +6c Oscillators 2 to 12s -2c, and Oscillator 3 is detuned 12s and 10c to add a little more fullness to the patch. 
  • From there, the mixed oscillators go through a low-pass filter, with the Cut almost all the way down and the Res (resonance) a little over quarter way. The other filter is mixed out, as set in the Blend slider.
  • After that, in the Effects stage, I've left the settings at heir default values.
  • Next, in the Router, the first Router slot's Target is set to Cutoff 1 (the Cut frequency of the first filter), with the Source set to Env2 (Envelope 2). The Control Amount slider (the green arrowhead) is set to the top of the positive value range, so the filter cutoff sweeps over a fairly wide range. (The other Router slots are disabled, as we don't need them for this patch.)
  • Below the Router, Envelope 3, which is controlling the amplitude of the patch, is set to a short attack (A) and decay (D), with a medium release (R), to create the short stabbing envelope for the chords. Envelope 2, which is controlling the cutoff frequency of the first filter (as set in the Router), has similar settings, but with a somewhat longer Decay and Release, so the filter closes down just a bit faster than the amplitude.

一旦你设置您的ES 2设置,以配合煤矿,你应该听到一个非常喜欢(我已经添加了一个简单的4 / 4大鼓)声音:

    Thanks, Richard. I really enjoy these sound design articles. I'm glad the change was made from the first notated transcription and audio sample. This is much more accurate. It sounds to me like the whole synth track in the recording is one patch, with envelopes and delays being automated. Nice work!

    Thanks, Adam - I appreciate it. The notation and performance is definitely more accurate now, and I think you're correct that it's one patch with automation. Sorry that I didn't get it right the first time around, but thanks for hanging in until we did. ^_^
