Last week, Jono Buchanan gave us an overview of basic audio recording within Logic Pro X. With that knowledge, combined with what we’ve learned about the EXS24 sampler, Jono dives a little deeper, showing us how to chop up our audio recordings and assign them to different notes on our keyboard. This allows you to turn a single sound into a fully playable instrument – the creative implications of this are endless, and with the tools available in EXS24, you can craft unique sounds to take your tracks to another level.
