How to make a proper "init-settings" in Ultrabeat, Logic
Hi guys, so the first tutorial on PHW will feature Logics Ultrabeat, and how to set it to a “init-setting” so that every sample you import will be “normalized” and are by default soundings.
When opening up Ultrabeat, you won’t get an actual default setting, rather an “default preset” which includes pre-made timbres and has some settings that might conflict the imported sample .
Well, people like me, tend to get annoyed by that, and want everything back to it’s init settings, Logic doesn’t actually allow you to do that, so why not make it yourself? Many people thinks that this will take sooo much time and is very hard, but guess what. It’s not! its actually pretty simple.
Step 1: Open up ‘Ultrabeat‘ and you should now see an initial setting which includes a lot of timbres and a really cheesy kick.
Step 2: Now with Ultrabeat open, look at the sample at the very bottom, named “Kick “, now left click the blue bar stating “Kick” and 5 different options is now available.
Step 3: Click the ‘init‘ and then choose ‘sample‘, and you will now see it has been set back, now we’re not totally done yet.
Step 4: You now have to change the ‘Osc2 Envelope‘ (The big round knob next to sample machine) amount to ‘0‘
Step 5: Now change the ‘Voice Volume Envelope‘ (The big round knob next to the filter) amount to ‘0‘ .
Step 6: Now everything has been set to the ‘init‘ settings of an sampler, and you are now free to put in your own sample and work around!.
Tip: Take the time and do it on every channel, and then when finished click ‘Save setting as ‘, and you never have to open Ultrabeat looking at all those annoying samples again, now you can open your own and do what you want to do!
Hope this was understandable, and will hopefully help. If needed, I’ll post some screenshots, just give me a shout, and I’ll do!
Tip 2: Also when making wonderful beats with the Ultrabeat remember to make the most of your CPU power, choose ‘Multi Output‘ and then set each track to different bus channels. But that, I can explain later on if people wants it.
I do take request upon tutorials, let me know what you readers would like to get explained, and I will try to make a tutorial around it.
