Producertech has launched Essential Guide to Logic Pro Instruments, a video tutorial course on Logic Pro’s virtual instruments.
Logic Pro is one of the most popular Digital Audio Workstations on the market. Used at every level of audio production, it is well known for being both powerful and flexible, but particularly for the incredible range of instruments it is bundled with. In this course from Producertech Course Director Rob Jones, you will be guided through the methods underpinning synthesis and sampling by means of detailed lessons on each of the instruments packaged with this popular piece of audio software.
From programming drums in Ultrabeat or Drummer, creating exciting sampled sounds in EXS24 to complete explanations of Subtractive, Wavetable, FM and Modelling synthesis in the full range of Logic’s plugins – by the end of this course you will be fully equipped to utilise all of these powerful instruments and techniques to great effect.
The course is available for purchase for £59.95 GBP.

3R Audio has announced VSL Performance Tools, a collection of tools for using EXS24 Vienna Symphonic Libraries in Apple’s Logic Pro X.
VSL Performance Tools for Logic Pro X – Articulation Tool.
The VSL Performance Tools let you use all your EXS24 Vienna Symphonic Libraries again directly in Logic Pro X. The bundle includes four scripter midifx plugin tools : Legato, Repetition, Articulation and Multi Instrument Tool.
VSL Performance Tools features
- Legato Tool — To use with the Perfect Legato Instruments. The script has all options of the original Legato Tool. You can switch between the different mappings of Standard, Horizon and Guitar Instruments and even have repeating notes alternation optionally.
- Repetition Tool — Use this tool with the Perfect Repetition Instruments. This new version makes repetitions easy and convenient to play as it substitutes the old pattern scheme with a clever random round robin algorithm. Additionally two cycle repetition modes are included.
- Articulation Tool — This Tool lets you switch between the different articulations of VSL all-instruments. You can switch via keyswitch, controller and programchange messages. The articulations changes can be automated.
- Multi Instrument Tool — A tool extending the possibilities of the legacy performance tool. A scripted trackstack patch makes it possible to use all kinds of different single vsl instruments in one multi-instrument and switch between them. Besides the normal keyswitch mode there is the new articulation-id mode, letting you even further program or play a different articulation for every single note.
The VSL Performance Tools are available for purchase for 29 EUR.

Drumdrops has announced that it has updated all the Multi-Velocity packs of its drum sample libraries.
We have been busy updating our Multi-Velocity packs and now all of these packs have been updated on our site to the latest versions. First up we have updated the EXS24 patches. There is now a new Logic X patch for EXS24 which utilises some of the Logic X features.
Secondly we have added over 500 MIDI Loops to the packs covering a variety of genres (it is the same loops in each pack and from time to time we will update them).
Finally we have just added patches for the excellent free TX16Wx sampler. These patches have been built by Suleiman Ali. This sampler is a free piece of software that the developer has been building for a while. It is an excellent alternative to the many paid samplers out there. The developer is extremely responsive and worked with Suleiman to make sure our patches work well.
For everyone who has already purchased a Multi-Velocity pack from us just head over to your account and download the latest version which will have all the latest updates. The All Samples Packs have also been updated with the latest version.
If you have not purchased a Multi-Velocity pack from us before or want to try out another kit then there is no better time than now. The packs come with up to 16 velocities of each articulation and include 11 different patches for most of the main samplers out there. Now they also come with over 500 MIDI loops. At £ 15.00 a pack you can’t get better than that. Although today for a limited period, we are offering a 20% discount on any of the Multi-Velocity kits. Just use the voucher code MV20 at checkout.
