You'll also learn how to accurately trim and loop samples, how to simulate vibrato and use the EXS24's filter section to add realism, and how to import many popular sample libraries including Akai sample CDs and Giga Sampler libraries.

Great course and work by David Dvorin! David goes through each part of the EXS 24 with precision and visual examples of what each part of it does. The EXS 24 is a workhorse for Logic and this course takes you through it completely! Besides working with the interface, David also takes the viewer through the editor section of the EXS 24 where one can program specifics to any sample or voice they wish to drag and drop. All in all, an excellent course! Bravo!

Very good overview of Logic Pro's EXS24 Sampler. I forgot how versatile this little sampler is after all these years of using Contact.

David Dvorin taught me things about the ESX24 that have sat under my nose for a minute. Well with this tutorial that is no longer the case baby!!!!

I don't mean to grumble, and I won't deny that a lot was learned from watching this course- but I have to say, David's explanations are incredibly cryptic. It sounds a lot more like he's just reading from the manual, rather than trying to rephrase complicated terminology in ways that most consumers will understand. On the whole, my advice is to do some background research on the EXS PRIOR to watching these videos (if you ARE going to bother with them, that is), as I really don't feel they cover all the bases for a complete beginner such as I.

I won't say it isn't for beginners, but there's a lot here to be learnt, so try to watch it when you have more than just a couple hours free on your day.

An excellent overview of the EXS24 instrument. It addresses all the aspects of the instrument. I would've loved a bit more on the modulation matrix, but I can get that from the ES range courses....

I'm really digging this Logic 9 tutorial series! I love how this one delved deep into every little button and menu option of the EXS24. I've been wondering what how to do some of this stuff for years!

Without taking the time to learn and "Explore" the EXS24, one would think that this Logic Pro Sampler Instrument is difficult to use, and probably think that the sounds are weaker than the competition. Watching this tutorial, definitely hands you the tools needed to make great sounding synths, and also this tutorial gives you a number of options for creative sampling, and building kits for your own projects. 5 star video.

This course is very short n sweet! If you want to get up and running on the ESX24, this course is more than adequate! If you are looking for the intricate workings, you may find this a tad bit lacking

This course is quite informative. Its style is a little 'technical' but certainly gets the job done!
