Record Audio with Stellar Quality Logic Pro 7 turns the Macintosh into a professional digital audio workstation that meets the highest demands for audio quality. It supports audio at 16- and 24-bit resolution and sample rates of up to 192kHz for both audio recording and playback of internal software instruments. Internal signal processing is based on 32-bit floating-point mathematics. This provides enormous headroom for internal processing, making it nearly impossible to overload the signal. The high level of sonic quality persists throughout the project ? even during mixdown to 16-bit audio for CD release ? thanks to the integrated POW-r dithering algorithm.
Fine-tune Audio Samples Logic Pro 7 incorporates a powerful sample editor, allowing precise editing of your audio data. Beyond simple operations such as cut, copy, and paste, an extensive suite of DSP tools is also available.These tools include time stretching, pitch shifting and formant correction. Within the sample editor, you can quantize your audio recordings, translate pitched monophonic audio recordings into notation or extract the rhythm of an audio drum loop for use as a quantization template on MIDI performances. Premiere and Audiosuite format plug-in compatibility provides additional processing possibilities.
Professional Mixing Capacity The virtual mixer in Logic Pro 7 controls a maximum of 255 audio tracks, 128 audio instrument tracks and a nearly unlimited number of MIDI tracks. Each audio and audio instrument track can display and use up to 15 insert plug-ins and 8 effect bus sends. Logic Pro offers dozens of effect plug-ins and supports additional Audio Unit (AU) format plug-ins.
World-class MIDI Sequencing MIDI processing provides control over external sound devices as well as software instruments and effects, such as internal instruments and plug-ins or Audio Unit plug-ins. Thanks to the native MIDI functions in Mac OS X Core Audio, you can also record MIDI keyboard performances in Logic Pro 7. The Mac OS X Audio MIDI Setup utility controls most MIDI tasks, such as adding new devices, routing and so on. All MIDI information automatically transfers to Logic Pro 7, providing you with immediate access to your MIDI devices. Additionally, the deep integration of OS-native MIDI with Logic Pro 7 provides reliable MIDI data transmission at minimal latencies, enhanceing the playability of software instruments and accelerating workflow.
Automate Every Parameter The parameters of software instruments and effects, as well as those of the mixing desk, integrate into the comprehensive automation system, thereby allowing full, total-recall mixes. The mixer supports a range of hardware controllers, from simple home studio models to high-end professional control surfaces that are deeply integrated into the Logic system. Generic control surfaces can be easily customized in a convenient MIDI Learn dialog.
Elegant Notation The Score editor perfectly transforms MIDI performances into notation ? in real time ? as you?re playing. Elaborate layout functions and professional notation printout functions allow you to quickly deliver anything from a lead sheet to a complete orchestral score. Logic Pro 7 supports automatic transposition of different instruments, as well as guitar tablature, drum notation and rapid entry of song lyrics or performance notes.
Ample Output Options You can write your final mixes to disk using industry-standard formats such as SDII, WAV, AIFF, AAC and MP3, including ID 3 tags. Logic Pro 7 also supports 12 surround formats, making it ideal for those involved in the creation of film and TV soundtracks. You can even bounce your song to a stereo audio file and immediately burn it to CD or create a CD master.
Distributed Audio Processing The conventional approach to increasing the processing power of native systems requires you to invest in costly, dedicated processors built onto expansion cards or into external hardware. Now, with Logic Pro 7, you can work with up to 128 stereo audio streams simply by using Macs over Ethernet. Logic distributed audio processing scales from single composition to full-blown audio post-production needs.
There?s no need to open your computer, as you don?t need to add an expansion card, and by it?s very nature, this feature provides immediate access to the latest processor technology. Simply add one or more Macintosh systems via Ethernet (or FireWire) connections to your Logic Pro 7 system. The result is an audio and music production system with processing power that was previously unimaginable for native-based systems.
Project Studio Distributed audio processing delivers the perfect link between a PowerBook and a Power Mac G5 in project studios. While the PowerBook makes for a reliable production and recording partner on the road, the Power Mac G5 is the ideal studio workhorse. Making them work together seamlessly optimizes workflow and maximizes productivity.
Swapping projects between the mobile computer and the stationary system in the studio normally requires fairly involved file management procedures to ensure that you've loaded both systems with the same samples, instrument and plug-in settings and audio files. Working with different audio hardware also means allocating the new Audio I/O to the Audio tracks and Audio Instrument tracks.
Using distributed audio processing in your project studio allows all files to remain on the local storage media of the Master system ? the hard drive of your PowerBook, for example. Starting work in the studio after collecting ideas while touring simply involves connecting your PowerBook to your studio?s Power Mac G5 via Ethernet. You can continue to work as per usual, but with a phenomenal boost in processing power.
Distributed Audio Processing enables you to make full use of external studios instantly, and use expensive studio time more effectively. You can install the simple Node application ? if it isn?t already on the studio Macintosh ? and connect a standard Ethernet cable to the studio?s computer in a few seconds. This allows you to make full use of the studio without leaving the setup you?re familiar with.
Networked Facility In bigger studio facilities, distributed audio processing lets you flexibly serve any processing demands ? whether for mixing, producing, post production or sound design ? in a highly cost effective way. Logic Pro 7 eliminates the need to equip each studio with an array of computers or dedicated DSP hardware because you can pool the Node computers in a central spot in the studio complex. Access the required horsepower, whenever it is needed, from every computer connected to the network.
Distributed audio processing in Logic Pro 7 will benefit from future developments in network technology. The protocol is independent of the network hardware, thanks to the use of the standard TCP. Furthermore, maintenance is simplified. One Node replaces another without problems, so repairing a Node doesn?t mean that production has to stop. The Nodes can be centrally placed outside the actual studio rooms, creating room for additional equipment and reducing noise and heat levels inside the control room. Organic Growth
Optimized for all current Apple Macintosh computers, Logic Pro 7 makes highly efficient use of the CPU processing power in both G4 and G5 single and dual processor systems. This allows more complex musical arrangements, featuring more software instruments and effects, than ever. The new distributed audio processing feature offers a plug-and-play solution that provides the ability to tap networked computers for even more DSP processing power. Using standard network technology makes it simple to set up a new installation, or add to an existing one. Should your demands grow, you can easily expand your network and benefit from the latest processor technology available.
Apple Loops -- add another voice to the mix Stretch and pitch shift audio files in real time. Take advantage of a library of audio and software instrument loops. Compose a first draft in GarageBand, then refine your piece with professional software. Logic Pro 7 now supports the Apple Loops file format that lets you work more efficiently and provide a better workflow than conventional file formats.
Pro Loops First introduced in Soundtrack and later in GarageBand, Apple Loops have quickly gained popularity, with the huge range of professional sound libraries available. The inclusion of Apple Loops support in Logic Pro 7 brings the file format to a professional audio and MIDI production application for the first time.
Loops Browsing Logic Pro 7 offers the Loop Browser for convenient searching. Based on the GarageBand browser, the Loop Browser lets you find Apple Loops by instrument, genre or mood. Logic displays search results as a listing that lets you easily preview the sound. When you add Apple Loops to your arrangement, Logic automatically transposes them to the right key and stretches them to the song tempo.
Software Instrument Advantage If you choose Apple Loops in software instrument format, Logic inserts the corresponding instrument, effect and input settings. This whole channel facility saves far more data than a standard audio file and makes the swapping of loops from one song to another or sharing ideas with other musicians simpler and faster. Of course you can edit settings in the channel strip.
Apple Loops Utility The Apple Loops Utility allows you to create your own Apple Loops from a simple audio file. You can add data to specify the attributes of the file, which will make it easy to find in the Loop Browser. The Apple Loops Utility also allows the addition of tags that describe the rhythmic elements of the audio file. This is achieved through analysis and transient detection of the audio file, resulting in a set of markers. You can also manually add markers or move existing markers to new locations. These markers provide a reference for Logic Pro 7, allowing realtime stretching of audio data.
Sculpture -- imagine the sweetest sounds Sculpture offers an inexhaustible variety of naturalistic sounds, based on component modeling technology, seamlessly integrated into the Logic Pro 7 software. It includes many sounds sought-after by composers, such as string, flute and pad sounds. Sharp percussive sounds, such as xylophones for example, are easily created. Given this broad scope for sound creation, Sculpture proves itself a worthwhile resource for unconventional sound design as well.
String Theory Although other Logic Pro 7 instruments are partially based on component modeling technology as well, Sculpture provides a comprehensive model of a vibrating string or bar without the need for samples of a real instrument. As a result, its sounds retain the natural character and expressiveness of a real instrument, even if the sound's created virtually.
More Variables, More Variety You can achieve further tweaks to the sound with two additional objects that can disturb the vibration. For these objects, the position and strength of the disturbance remain variable. In contrast to classical synthesizer parameters, changes in Sculpture result in sounds that have far more complex sonic details. A change to a single object parameter may result in a new timbre, dynamics and harmonics.
Familiar Interface Beyond specific Component Modeling parameters, Sculpture offers the classic ADSR envelope of traditional analog synthesizers as well. This tool provides instant access to conventional parameters that most users know well. You can create the classic fine tuning of sounds with Sculpture?s 3 band EQ.
Sculpture's envelope editor Another part of the modulation section offers two control envelopes for use as standard envelopes, where any envelope shape can be drawn. You can also assign external controller hardware to the envelope?s controllers allowing recording, playback and modification of incoming MIDI events interpreted as an envelope. You can even loop the envelopes you?ve recorded or drawn.
Morph pad Used for over 20 morphable parameters, users find Morph Pad as the most powerful way of creating complex modulation effects. Users can find the values of these parameters indicated in orange on the user interface and assign five parameters to the Morph Pad at one time. Move the morph point in the Morph Pad and you change the values of multiple parameters simultaneously. Likewise, users can further modify or loop these movements.
Ultrabeat -- your 21st Century beatbox Feature-rich drum synthesizer UltraBeat provides everything you need to create totally new beats or manipulate samples of natural sounds, making it the instrument of choice for all producers and remixers searching for an intuitive, flexible and sonically exciting way to create drum loops. A natural progression from the drum machines of the early eighties, sonically, this software instrument will become an indespensible tool whether you're working in Techno, House, Hip-Hop or derivative genres.
Analog And Then Some UltraBeat?s step sequencer captures the feel of analog, with the same intuitive interface popularized in the early 80s. Ultrabeat expands on the concept by providing deep control of instrument parameters. Seamlessly integrated into Logic Pro 7, the step sequencer of Ultrabeat always syncs to the clock. UltraBeat offers 24 drum voices and one voice that you can play chromatically, making it ideal for bass lines. This approach ensures that UltraBeat loops always remain diverse, lively and interesting, so you ?and your fans ? will never become bored.
Enough To Go All Night Beyond the sheer variety offered by the tone generation system, the sequencing facilities are outstanding for an electronic percussion instrument ? whether software or hardware. Each sequence can hold up to 32 steps plus further information on trigger events and parameter changes. The swing parameter adjusts shuffle intensity. Accent increases the output volume of all drum voices for a particular step. The sequencer can save 24 patterns, comprised of the sequencer and tone generation data of all 25 voice modules, allowing you to record different loops in the same instrument.
UltraBeat's Filter and EQ modules A rich palette of effects, filters and EQs lets you edit voices with extreme precision, from slight corrections of the tonal character to radical changes. The overdrive section features a distortion and bit crusher. Generally, these types of effects make the sound more aggressive and maximize the tension of the mix. UltraBeat?s overdrive provides the best results when processing percussive sounds. The multimode filter offers four different 12 or 24 dB cutoff modes, providing effective, full-bodied tweaking of lower frequencies. Modulation of filter parameters results in a stylish effect that makes the sound more lively. Ring modulation adds dissonances and overtones to the signals of both oscillators. Depending on settings, the effect is somewhat reminiscent of bell sounds, but it may add noisy characteristics as well. The refined two band parametric EQ precisely sculpts the sonic details of each drum sound.
Spread It Around The Pan/Spread section positions each drum sound in the stereo field. The Stereo Spread option distributes the sound to the left or right channel, depending on frequency. Pan Modulation lets you vary the stereo position of the voice. You can link this modulation to one of UltraBeat?s multiple modulation sources. Both effects add sonic life and enhance the impression of the stereo mix.
New Effects -- your cutting-edge sonic palette With the introduction of multiple new plug-ins, Logic Pro 7 once again validates its commitment to be the most comprehensive audio and music production software on the market. The new effect plug-ins bring together emulations of analog music equipment and the latest outcome of digital sound manipulation. The range of new plug-ins also feature valuable mastering tools that let you add the final polish to your productions without the need of acquiring additional Third Party plug-ins.
Guitar Amp Pro The Guitar Amp Pro plug-in enables guitarists to play their instrument through faithful recreations of guitar amplifiers and speakers ? directly in Logic Pro 7. You can connect a guitar to your Mac via a cable plugged directly into the audio input on the computer or via an additional USB-, FireWire- or PCI-based audio hardware interface.
Guitar Amp Pro offers a wide range of legendary guitar amplifier sounds and a variety of different speakers, which you can freely combined. Additional modulation effects ? Vibrato and Tremolo ? and a Reverb section further increase the flexibility of Guitar Amp Pro.
Whether you are touring or rehearsing, Guitar Amp Pro signifies the end of lugging heavy amplifiers around. Just take your iBook or PowerBook with you. Instantly switch between different amplifiers and speakers without patching cables. Build your ideal amp and speaker combos and save them as plug-in presets. Never before have Logic-based guitarists had this level of sonic excellence and ease of use right out of the box.
Many guitarists will also benefit from Guitar Amp Pro for re-amping duties. This method involves sending a sound through an amplifier and picking up the amplified signal with a microphone. Enjoy the tonal colors of Guitar Amp Pro re-amping, which makes it easy to virtually send a sound through an amp and pick up the resulting signal with a microphone. Guitar Amp Pro provides virtual re-amping with a mouse click.
As with all other Logic Pro 7 plug-ins, Guitar Amp Pro can be inserted in any Audio or Audio Instrument channel for sound processing. This makes it a worthwhile distortion effect not only for guitar, but also for any other type of sound.
Ringshifter The Ringshifter is a powerful combination of two modulation effects especially popular in the 1970s ? ring modulator and frequency shifter. At that time, the frequency shifter remained an expensive piece of hardware due to the complexity of its analog circuits. But now you can harness the frequency shifter?s special effects, ranging between spacious phasing to strange robotic timbres, right from your Mac.
The ring modulator mode of the Ringshifter plug-in modulates the amplitude of the source signal with a second signal or with an internal oscillator. This results in the addition of a metallic or clangorous character being added to the input audio signal.
Vocal Transformer The Vocal Transformer allows you to manipulate vocal lines, percussive signals or any other monophonic material in a number of interesting ways. For example, you can change vocals to a robot-like voice or increase the pitch of a vocal track until it resembles a ?Mickey Mouse? voice. The Vocal Transformer?s effect processes pitch change without disturbing the transients of the input signal.
Pitch Correction The Pitch Correction plug-in corrects improper intonation of vocal recordings. It applies the desired pitch to a vocal track without losing the natural articulation of the performance. While this use of Pitch Correction is a valuable tool for precise vocal work, the plug-in can also be used for expressive effects: The use of large transposition intervals allows you to create interesting sonic artifacts that add to the voice signal, sometimes referred to as the ?Cher effect?.
Linear Phase EQ The Linear Phase EQ manipulates the EQ curves of your audio signal without corrupting its phase. The interface provides the same eight-band layout and method of operation as the popular Channel EQ. You can even copy settings between the two EQs. The Linear Phase EQ is specially tailored for mixdown and mastering situations and features integrated plug-in delay compensation.
Match EQ The Match EQ acoustically matches two audio signals. In other words, this special EQ transfers the frequency spectrum from one signal to another. This way, you can acoustically match various songs for an album or impart the ?sound? of any reference source to your own recordings.
Additionally, the Match EQ analyzes the signal of the track that it is inserted in and saves settings as a Match EQ template. You can change the sound of another Audio or Audio Instrument track by inserting the Match EQ and recalling the template.
Multimeter A powerful analysis and measurement tool for audio material, the Multimeter houses three functions in one plug-in window. These precise visual instruments aid the process of enhancing the mix during the mastering stage of a project. The Third Octave Spectrum Analyzer is an industry-standard tool that analyzes 31 independent frequency bands. It complies with the specifications of the worldwide IEC 1260 standard. Two display modes show the effective signal average, providing a good representative overview of the perceived volume levels. The Goniometer visualizes the signal?s stereo phase. This helps in finding a balanced stereo image for the mix. The Correlation Meter gauges the phase relationship of a stereo signal at a glance. The Level Meter shows the current signal level on a logarithmic scale. Both the Correlation and Level Meter are available as separate plug-ins as well.
Workflow -- simply powerful Logic Pro 7 makes it even easier to work with audio efficiently and productively. Incorporating the Apple professional software interface as well as requests from Logic users, Logic Pro 7 lets you create and edit tracks more easily, adjust channels directly and make global changes. What?s more, you?ll also be able to save such settings for use in future projects. Perfect for composing while travelling, you can use your Mac keyboard to drive software instruments.
Make Arrangements Quickly Used to move and edit MIDI or audio regions in order to arrange your song, the main working window in Logic Pro 7 provides the best overview of a project. Now an integrated channel strip lets you directly access mixing parameters. You?ll also enjoy new editing modes that keep regions from overlapping and automatically crossfade between regions. Or try out the track solo, available for both MIDI and audio tracks and folders. Logic Pro 7 now lets you reverse multiple audio sample edits, so there?s no need to make backup audio files before editing.
Caps Lock Keyboard Perfect for mobile musicians, the Caps Lock Keyboard feature takes advantage of your Mac keyboard so you can input note data ? even velocity ? without a MIDI keyboard. Simply pound out the melodies and chords with just your Mac.
Improved Project File Management Managing all project-dependent files has never been so easy. You can easily consolidate all audio files, MIDI data, song files, plug-in and instrument settings, and movie data into a project folder. You can also create this folder at the start of a project, and let Logic copy or move media into the folder in the background as you work and import audio.
Templates Templates take the Autoload concept to the next level for customizing your environment. Now you can also start a new Logic Pro 7 song by choosing one of multiple templates. Select from preset templates or create customized templates for each type of job that you perform or different studio environments with varying equipment (perfect for PowerBooks).
Audio Window You can access the Finder menu directly from the Audio window, which lets you quickly locate audio files on any storage device. And with Audio Window Groups, you can bundle audio files, making handling easier and faster. For example, you could create groups for Vocals, Synths, Bass, or other genres to help you structure your audio files.
External Instruments Use your external instruments as easily as internal instruments with the External Instruments I/O plug-in. It automatically monitors the correct audio inputs when a particular external MIDI device is selected. You can conveniently bounce audio file versions of tracks generated from external synthesizers.
Track Mixer Improvements The Track Mixer now offers save and load functions that make it easy to transfer Channel Strip settings. You can select multiple objects, and edit them as a group, making routing faster than ever before. The rename tool also lets you edit to Mixer Object colors amongst other things.
Virtual Synthesis -- make waves Logic Pro 7 software instruments offer pristine sound quality achieved through the use of 32-bit internal processing, which renders instruments with brilliant responsiveness. Logic sonically reflects the smallest nuances in your playing style. You can quickly add instruments and effects in the channel strip, then record and automate instrument parameters using real knobs and faders.
ES2 The ES2 combines the full-bodied warmth of subtractive synthesis with the unbelievable possibilities of digital tone generation systems such as vector synthesis and frequency modulation (FM). Musicians and sound designers can draw from a whole host of sounds and an exclusive range of synthesis techniques to create radical sounds or the most subtle of sound changes. The same level of flexibility also extends to the huge number of modulation options. The enormously feature rich ES2 is rounded out with an intelligent feature that allows the random generation of sounds, a unison-mode and the innovative ConstantBeatDetune function, which allows floating frequencies over the complete key range.
ES1 The ES1 software synthesizer has the heart of many classic analog favorites, and includes all of the details and facilities that fans of this type of sound generation know and love. It is rich with character, and elegantly combines 30 years of synthesizer history. Offering up to 16 voice polyphony, every ES1 voice features a main and sub-oscillator delivering the raw sonic material shaped by the analog ES1 filter. The ES1 lets you create earth-shaking basses, rich pads, textures, screaming leads, ultra-sharp percussion or exotic effects.
EFM1 Based on FM synthesis, the EFM1 lets you recreate the classic synthesizer sounds of the 1980s. Whether you desire expressive lead sounds, booming bass, soft strings or crystal-clear bells, the richness of FM synthesis delivers dreamy lushness. A simple interface provides accessible controls that make tweaking sounds a pleasure. Or let the EFM1 create its own sounds randomly.
ESM The monophonic synthesizer ESM lets you design powerful basses and expressive lead sounds, with variable selection between sawtooth and rectangular waves. Despite of his inconspicious appearance, the ESM is able to sound like an old analog beast. So be sure to try out the resonance-capable dynamic low-pass filter, with a biting slope characterisic of 24 dB.
ESP One of the strengths of the eight-voice polyphonic ESP are the brass sounds characteristic of 80s pop music. In addition to the oscillator, sub-oscillator and filter, the ESP offers an LFO for creating wah-wah effects and an ADSR envelope generator for precise level control.
ESE You?ll love playing with the pad-sounds of the eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer ESE. You can mix its sawtooth or rectangular waves in a near-infinite variety of base tones, modulate the sawtooth wave in frequency and the rectangular wave in impulse width.
Vintage instruments -- evoke the funk Logic Pro 7 vintage instruments offer painstakingly real simulations of the Hammond B3, various Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer pianos and the Hohner Clavinet D6. All these instruments combine pristine sound quality with joyful playability, as a result of the excellence of its applied algorithms. And with rock-solid stability, you may rely upon the vintage instruments of Logic not only in the studio but on stage as well.
EVB3 One of the most influential keyboard instruments of the 20th century, the Hammond B3 organ's characteristic sound has been, and continues to be heard, in a wide range of musical styles such as Motown, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Funk, Reggae, Dance, Country, Blues, Soul and Gospel. For anyone working in a computer-based environment with a Logic system, this unmistakably warm sound is an essential. The EVB3 flawlessly recreates the sound of the B3 in software (and weighs much less than 500 pounds).
EVD6 The Hohner Clavinet D6 is one of the classic keyboard sounds of the 20th century. Although the D6 has always been closely linked to funk, the sound is used in countless pop, reggae and dance productions. The EVD6 mathematically recreates every subtle nuance of the original without using any samples.
EVP88 Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Hohner ? the sounds of these vintage electric pianos have been legendary for decades. The EVP88 precisely mimics these sweet sounds in every detail, reproduced authentically, without the use of samples. This modelling technique results in a software instrument that not only sounds great, but responds to every subtle playing nuance with incredible dynamism.
ESX24 -- sample freedom The EXS24 software sampler lets you easily and quickly incorporate sample-based sounds into your productions with uncompromised sound quality. The EXS24 features sample accurate timing, total recall and intuitive control, as well as outstanding support for a wide range of sample library formats. And of course, you can process these sounds further using the built-in multi-mode filter and the extensive range of effect plug-ins on up to 16 individual outputs.
Create Complex Routes The modulation matrix, borrowed from the ES2 synthesizer, provides comprehensive routing possibilities, for countless creative sound processing options. Try out the three LFOs, the two snappy envelopes, or any MIDI controller. Additionally, you can route the level of the sidechain input to sample select, sample start, pitch, glide, volume, pan, envelope times, parameters of LFOs, or filters.
Filter Out the Train Wrecks An excellent-sounding multimode filter completes the feature set, providing adjustable slopes, variable filter overdrive amount, and a fatness circuit that ensures excellent low-frequency response, even at high resonance settings.
Add Hardware Processing In addition, the Logic Pro ESB TDM lets you insert up to 32 instances into the Aux channels of the Logic TDM mixer. You can treat the stereo output signals of each EXS24 instance with any of the processing options of the TDM DSP environment, such as TDM plug-ins. Your Mac calculates each EXS24 TDM process and places no overhead on the TDM DSPs. Logic records the MIDI performances of each EXS24 TDM instance on TDM Auxiliary tracks controlled directly in Logic, which provides sample-accurate playback for all instances of the EXS24 TDM.
Delay effects -- beauty in repetition One of the most classic effects developed in the audio industry, delay inspires creativity ? not only in Dub, but in all genres of today?s pop music. Logic Pro 7 offers a faithful emulation of the tape echo for vintage fans but also boasts a most feature-rich Stereo Delay.
Tape Delay Within Logic Pro 7, Tape Delay recognizes the tempo. Just click on the sync button and delay repeats will fit to the beat. The Groove slider offers smooth switching between triplet and dotted notes ? this corresponds to the Logic Pro 7 Swing parameter. You can also modulate delay time with an LFO as well. Once you?ve experienced the sounds created by fading the feedback slider to create virtual tape loop saturation, or hear the desired frequency range more clearly with each repetition, you?ll know it?s time to get rid of your analog tape echo.
Stereo Delay The Stereo Delay offers similar controller features to Tape Delay, minus the tape saturation, making it even more processor efficient. You can control the feedback level for each stereo channel separately, as well as the cross feedback level. Using Stereo Delay, you can effo
