Apple's Logic Pro comes bundled with a full suite of powerful EQ and filter plugins, including emulations of vintage hardware units like Neve, API, Pultec and more. Take this advanced course by Joe Albano and learn all about them!
EQ and filters are two of the most often-used audio effects. Logic Pro includes a whole variety of EQ and filter plugins, and there's a reason for that: each has its own specific uses, distinctive character and feature set. In this course, audio expert Joe Albano takes an in-depth look at all of them!
After covering some important EQ basics, Joe demonstrates the versatility of Logic's "bread and butter" EQ, the Channel EQ, and its "twin brother", the Linear Phase EQ. He talks about their differences and similarities, and covers their specific applications. The Single Band and AudioUnit EQs are next... sometimes a simple plugin is just what you need for a quick EQ fix!
Next, Joe dives into the vintage EQs. He gives an overview of the original analog gear on which they are based (Neve 1073, API 560, Pultec EQP-1A and MEQ-5), and he takes an in-depth look at their plugin counterparts (the Console, Graphic and Tube models). Other plugins, like the Match EQ, AutoFilter, Spectral Gate, Fuzz-Wah, Exciter and SubBass and more are also covered in detail.
So sit back, and learn all about Logic Pro EQ and filter plugins with our in-house Logic expert, Joe Albano!
Another great course by Joe Albano, this time bringing light to the darkness of Logic's EQ plug-ins.
As with every other course I've completed by Joe, this one has clearly been lovingly prepared and is filled with so much useful information that a second watch is advised.
Personally, I think the Filter section could be updated; while AutoFilter is undoubtedly a go-to plug-in, Spectral Gate and Sub-Bass don't strike me as of general enough application to be worth the attention they get. Now that Logic has introduced Phat FX, I'd suggest that could be included instead (even though it has some modules not strictly connected to this course). But what do I know?!
Thanks for another really useful course, Joe :-)
