Learn exactly what MIDI plug-ins are and how they are different from audio plug-ins.
Explore the Note Repeater plug-in and see how it is used to generate repeating MIDI notes; either mimicking an audio delay unit, or selectively including or excluding specific ranges of notes.
Modulator Plug-In LFO Section8:02
See how LFOs, repeating cyclical patterns, are used to modulate target parameters in the Modulator plug-in.
Modulator Plug-In Envelope Section6:39
Explore how a four point envelope can be used to modulate destination parameters over time.
Envelopes & LFOs Together0:00
Explore some of the possibilities when combining these two modulation sources, and see how they interact together.
See how this plug-in is used to transform MIDI message values into random values. Intensity, range, and weighting controls are used to limit the results of the generated values.
Watch how this plug-in is used to have incoming notes conform to a specific, or user defined, root key signature and scale type.
Create Custom Patterns5:56
Watch as the Note Repeater, Randomizer, Transposer, and Modulator plug-ins are used in series, together with some automation, to build custom arpeggiated patterns designed to fit a unique chord progression.
Explore the various modes this plug-in offers. It is used to compress, expand, limit, fix, scale, add to, or subtract from, incoming note velocities.
See how this plug-in is used to reassign a specific MIDI event type and optionally scale, add to, or subtract from the converted values.
Explore the Single and Multi modes of this this plug-in, and how they are programmed and used to trigger chords by playing a single MIDI key.
Arpeggiator: Control Parameters8:02
Learn how to control the arpeggiators various latch and playback modes.
Arpeggiator: Note Order Parameters5:06
See how speed and the order of the arpeggiated notes are set using the rate knob and field, the direction buttons, and the variation and inversion controls.
Arpeggiator: Pattern Parameters6:34
Discover how custom patterns are created, modified, and saved, in either live or grid mode.
Arpeggiator: Advanced Parameters8:43
Explore the global playback controls that affect note length, velocity, and swing; and learn to split the keyboard and remote control the arpeggiator functions either from a dedicated note range or with other MIDI messages generated from your controller.
Recording MIDI FX0:00
Learn how to use Apple's Audio MIDI Setup utility to create an IAC bus, and record all of Logic's MIDI FX to a new track through it; all without touching the Environment Window.
Parallel Processing With MIDI FX6:50
See how MIDI FX plug-ins can be used in track stacks and how the stack master is used to trigger different MIDI processes on multiple tracks simultaneously.
The new Logic Pro X introduced some new, way cool MIDI plug-ins that can really inspire, create new parts for your songs and allow you to tweak until your heart's content. Follow along with Apple Logic Certified Pro Eli Krantzberg and see just what all the excitement is about.
Eli begins with an introduction, explaining just what MIDI plug-ins are and how they're used. Eli then showcases the first plug-in, "Note Repeater" explaining how it works and how you can create cool delay type lines with it and more. The "Modulator" Plug-In is next and Eli reveals both the LFO and Envelope sections.
The "Randomizer" is then examined as well as the "Transposer", and Eli demonstrates how you can create custom arpeggiated patterns using all the plug-ins looked at so far. Next up are the "Velocity Processor", "Modifier" and "Chord Trigger" plug-ins. Eli explains them all in detail and gives you cool ideas for their use.
The all-mighty "Arpeggiator" plug-in is then gone over with a fine tooth comb, leaving no feature or function unexplained. Eli wraps up the series with some tips and tricks on recording MIDI FX as well as setting up parallel processing with MIDI FX.
If you're new to Logic Pro X and its features, or just want to get a fresh perspective on them, this series is just what the doctor ordered... Watch "Logic Pro X MIDI Plug-Ins Explained" today.

I can't come up with real negative points for this tutorial series so that means this is a good series. The explanations are clear. Furthermore, some practical examples are given which I find very important in a tutorial series. Especially in this type of series, which could otherwise be very dry. So I can recommend this product for anyone wanting to know how to work with these midi plug ins.
