LOGIC STUDIO NOTES
Logic Studio's ES2 synthesizer has a Tutorial Library which has several basic settings that can be used for amazing original synth beats.
The EX24 has basic sound waves under: Synthesizers/Synth waveforms. There you will find both Analog and Digital waveforms that you can use in mixing.
Cutoff: Determines the frequencies that are allowed thru. For ex. Knob all the way to the right allows in all high frequencies.
Random: Increases randomness of pitch
Transpose: Transpose instrument
Tune: Affect tuning plus or minus
Glide: Pitch glides parameters
Fat: increases fatness of sound
Resonance: can help create sine wave, increases specific pitch set by cutoff
Drive: overdrive parameter
