Lesson 4 – Mixing EDM – The Keyboards & Synths
Now we can start on the keyboards and synths. There is some real-time control needed to add movement to the various parts, and we do this with a combination of MIDI data automation and Logics own automation system.
This lesson will cover,

|Step 1 – The Main Riff. Adjust the release time of the ADSR envelope using automation.|
|Step 2 – The Bellsphere (Pad). Using MIDI modulation to add pitch vibrato to the pad sound.|
|Step 3 – The B3 Organ. The Organ has lots of its own effects such as reverb. Insert a phaser effect to add some movement. Make use of micro-panning.|
|Step 4 – The Arp lead line. Use automation to record the cut-off point and resonance. Insert some echo delay|
What effect does increasing the release time have on the main riff?
It makes the individual notes last longer.
What type of MIDI information is recorded by the modulation wheel?
Continuous controller data.
What type of effect is a phaser?
A modulation effect
What type of filter is used for the Arp lead line?
Low pass filter
