macProVideo.com has released the Logic 208: Exploring the EVP88 and the EVB3 video tutorial. Here's what they have to say about it...
In this exclusive, full length, "made-for-macProVideo" tutorial by David Earl, you'll uncover the inner workings of Logic's physically modeled soft synths: the EVP88 and EVB3. Learn how, with a little tweaking, these synths will rock your productions...
The EVP88 (modeled after the Fender Rhodes electric piano) and the EVB3 (modeled after the Hammond B3 organ) form the foundation of Logic's family of physically modeled software instruments. Their authentic sounds are legendary and their presets are notoriously rich. However, how often –especially in the case of the quirky and complicated EVB3– do you dive in to create your own, unique presets? Well, that's all going to change!
In this awesome two-for-one tutorial David Earl lifts the virtual veil of secrecy and explains what all the controls do and how you can use them to design your own, signature sounds. You see, all these virtual instruments' controls are designed to emulate the physical properties of the actual instruments they are emulating. So if you really want to program them, you've got to understand the workings of the Fender Rhodes and the Hammond B3 themselves.
That's exactly what David accomplishes in this tutorial. He starts off with a little rock music history as he teaches you about the inventors of the Rhodes and the B3. He explains how these classic instruments were designed and how they worked. Then he takes you on a virtual trip inside the real instruments explaining their mechanics and analog electronic circuitry. Because, to program these virtual offspring, you've got to know how the older generation worked!
From there he takes you to Logic's physically modeled versions: the EVP88 and EVB3. He explains what every knob does, how it relates to the actual instrument, and cool ways you can use these controls to tweak and create your own awesome presets.
Finally, David takes it a step further revealing some of the weirder stuff the Logic team threw in to take these virtual instruments into places the real instruments could never go!
So explore this inventive, fact-filled tutorial by David Earl and we promise that programming the EVP88 and the EVB3 will never be the same!
