Steve H. is at it again with this power-house tutorial showing you how to use Ultrabeat.
The tutorial starts with a detailed exploration of Ultrabeat's interface. You'll learn how to trace the signal path from start to finish through the instrument - along the way you'll learn how Ultrabeat's switches and buttons (including hidden switches) function to control it's sound.
You'll move on to a detailed exploration of oscillators as you discover how to synthesis drum sounds from the ground-up in Ultrabeat. Why use presets ... make your own unique drum sounds by watching these videos!
Next you'll explore filters, envelopes & modulators as you shape your oscillators to create your sound.
The second half of the tutorial moves into the groove. In this section you'll learn how to create drum patters using Ultrabeat's built-in step sequencer. By the end of the video, you'll be ready to put your vintage 909 (and your favorite drummer) in the closet - Ultrabeat has the sounds and versatility you're after!

Excellent course by Steve Horelick demonstrating the power and versatility of Logic Pro's mighty Ultrabeat Drum Synth! This course is still relevant for Logic Pro X users as Ultrabeat does not appear to have changed much since version 8.
All I can say is try not to be put off by Ultrabeat's convoluted and arguably ugly interface, after you have watched these tutorials you will know Ultrabeat's GUI and extensive feature set like the back of your hand.

Steve Horelick is tops in this tutorial, seeing his name as trainer is my 1st indicator that it's going to be a must watch. So much info, must watch this again.

Very very good. It's true what he says; he leaves no stone unturned!
These tutorials have turned what was originally to me an intimidating soft synth, into an absolute weapon!
Ultrabeat UNLEASHED indeed!

I had some knowledge of Ultrabeat from Logic 101 tutorial, but Steve's Ultrabeat course goes through all the UB aspects and shows how to efficiently use the tool to build up interesting drum sequences

It's really easy to get confused with all the buttons/menus on the Ultrabeat. This tutorial helped me demystify all of them! I especially enjoyed the section on vias. Been wondering what those do.

The title "Ultrabeat Unleashed" could not have been better put. The course completely demystifies Ultrabeat and highlights how powerful a plug-in it is. And also, that it is master-able. 10**********s

I just started the Ultrabeat Unleashed course & it's already simplified what seemed like a very complex piece of software. Insights in the geography, signal flow and buttons has been extremely helpful

I can't say enough good things about this course!! Always a pleasure to learn from such a dynamic instructor! Steve H. tutorials along with M. Sitters should all have 6 stars!!! Premier Instruction

"...no longer contemplating buying any 3rd party drum machine software.." This line from another review here is also how I feel.
I just want UB for the step-sequencer, or drum-machine, part of it, not so interested in the Synthesizer part (which is why Ultrabeat looks so damn scary at the front door - all that Synth stuff!). Steve H. shows me how to make a new sound and/ or beat, change it around and bring it into the Logic arrange area as a region. I will have to watch it at least once more to get everything I can get from this video set. That will be easy enough as Steve is clear without being heavy, and the videos are well organized.
Another 5-star course in my opinion. Thank-you, Steve!
