Masmöd vs the ES2

As some of you may know, a new release of mine has been in the works since the completion of my album, Axiom. Unfortunately, the transition from Axiom to my new release hasn’t been a smooth one. I hit an unexpected snag. The snag I’m referring to is specifically Logic Pro 8. When I made Axiom, I was using Logic Express 6.4. I’m sure if you’ve ever used LE 6.4, you know its limitations. Anyway, I really pushed the capabilities of that limited software, and the one key factor that really made Axiom possible was the EXSP24. The one major factor of the EXSP24 that really made all the difference was the ADSR envelope capabilities for manipulating sine waves. From the research I’ve done, most people never used the EXSP24 for actual sound design with the stock sine wave, (that would be without loading any samples into the plugin). Through excruciating trial and error, and weeks of nonstop loops through my headphones, I was able to produce a frequency kick, using only the parameters of the EXSP24, with no samples at all. Later, I beefed it up using the stock EQ plugins provided by garage band, and LE 6.4. The end result, well, if you’ve heard Axiom, I think the work speaks for itself.
