I/O Effects Recipes for Logic Pro From 9 Soundware
Channel Strip settings for performance effects 29/07/11
Interesting idea this, and not one I think I’ve seen before - a set of Logic channel strips setup as preset effects with some quite extreme patches too.
The sound set is composed of 8 categories: “Pitch Shifter”, “Wah-wah Pedal”, “Envelope Follower”, “Downsampling”, “Delay”, “Reverb”, “Fuzz”, and “Signal Generator”. Each category consists of 5 recipes, with the exception of “Pitch Shifter” and “Wah-wah Pedal”, both of which comprise of 10, for a total of 50 Channel Strip settings and corresponding controller assignments. At the heart of the sound design behind I/O is atypical signal routing, glitches, and extreme settings. Consequently, the sound set features, among others, less prominent Apple plug-ins such as AURogerBeep, AUDistortion, Test Oscillator, SilverVerb, and AVerb. True to the 9 Soundware mantra “It’s not what you use, but how you use it.”, the kit was designed to be a cost-effective tool for adventurous music composition and performance using Logic.
The 17 controller assignments for 12 Logic Pro plug-ins highlighted in the documentation are designed to work in tandem, as a portion of the sound set involves simultaneous control across multiple plug-ins. While intended to be configured with “optional” devices, I/O is theoretically built around 3 types of controls – continuous (e.g., knobs), ”non latching” on/off (e.g., keys), and center detented (e.g., pitch wheel) – which are commonly found in MIDI keyboard controllers, and therefore one can be used in substitution.
