Project 5: Self Reflection

Today we recorded some sounds and imported them into logic. We used ESX 24 sampler.

Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 15.19.50We recorded the sounds using the “zoom” recorder. We recorded a student holding some sustained notes in different keys and pitches. We also recorded another student beat-boxing different parts of a drum kit (samples). We then imported these sounds of the server and converted them. We saved them onto our user profile and then put them into the sampler.Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 15.24.22To get to this part we had to click on the edit button on the tope right of the sampler. Although many of the computers did not have this option (Such as mine) so we had to update/change the settings within logic. We did this by going onto the logic menu and hovering over “preferences” and going down and selecting “advanced tools.”Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 15.27.27once having opened the advanced tools, we had to update the settings. To do this we had to click the “enable all” button.Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 15.30.58

Tuesday 2nd February.

today we learned how to use a compressor in different ways. we learned how to make vocals overtrick a piece of music (Like on the radio) We used the compressor first to compress the piece of music.Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 15.14.30.pngScreen Shot 2016-02-02 at 15.14.48.pngWe used the “Side chain” feature to do this, this made the piece of music we used quiet when the audio would play over the piece.Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 15.15.00.pngI personally think this is a very important feature to know throughout this course. It will be used in future projects and it will show my understanding of logic in the future.

Tuesday 9th Febuary.

Today we used the EVOC 20 (Vocoder) Screen Shot 2016-02-09 at 09.30.41.png

We inserted vocals on an audio track and the used the Vocoder on a software instrument track. When the vocoder was loaded up we had to change the “Side chain” located in the top left corner of the vocoder to Voc, in order to make it work.

We then proceeded to choose which setting we would like to use on the vocoder. We settled with using teh “Vintage Vocoder”Screen Shot 2016-02-09 at 09.35.45.png
