Logic Pro X Tutorial – House Music Vocal Chopping Techniques w/ Matt Shadetek

In this Logic Pro X tutorial video, Dubspot Logic course designer Matt Shadetek goes over a technique to process a vocal sample through the ES1 instrument to create a rhythmic gating effect.

In this Logic Pro X tutorial video, Dubspot Logic Pro course designer Matt Shadetek shows you an interesting alternative gating technique to add some rhythmic, gated movement to a pitch-bent vocal sample. By setting the ES1 instrument’s sub oscillator to “EXT,” it allows you to use the ES1′s filter and ADSR envelope to process external sounds through the side chain input. By adding MIDI note data to that ES1 track, it tells the ES1 to only pass the external audio through when there is a “note on” message. You can also use (or automate) the ES1′s ADSR envelope to further shape the sound. The resulting sound is similar to the famous vocal lead line from “Pon De Floor” by Major Lazer. Check out Matt’s work on mattshadetek.com and follow him on Soundcloud.
