Building Custom Vocal Distortion Presets in Logic Pro X

  • by

I connected remotely with a client to help him install some new plugins on his system. He wanted to replicate the vocal distortion sound from this YouTube tutorial:

My client had already bought the plugins from the Audiority site before our session. Once we had made our remote connection via AnyDesk, I went through the process of downloading, installing and licensing the plugins on his Mac. We re-watched the YouTube video together and paused the video to copy the settings across onto his Logic system.

Once we had created the first preset, I showed my client how we could use Logic’s Aux tracks and folders to create the same doubled vocal effect as in the video but make it a little neater and display as a single track in the arrange window.

We listened to the effects chains together, discussed the results and then tweaked the parameters to best suit his voice.

Once we had a selection of presets we were happy with, we saved them as Logic Track Presets so that he could open them again in any of his other projects.

My client was happy with the results and we moved on to look at another issue he was having importing a large collection of stem files into Logic.
