After looking at Step FX last week, Jono Buchanan now takes us through Logic Pro X‘s Phat FX, a multi-effect insert that can pack a punch. Our Logic Pro Tips video shows you how Phat FX can be used to add flair to your sounds, with insight into the different functions, algorithms and models of each effect.
