    Here we take a look at how to instantly become a keyboard master by using the Chord Trigger MIDI effect.

    Learn how to generate FX that people have never made, using the wonder and magic of randomization and the Logic ES2 synthesizer.

    After a brief overview of the FX generated in the last video, discover cool tricks on how to re-use them.

    Automation & Arrangement Pt. 1

    We begin by automating some fills and roughing out an arrangement.
