One of Logic’s many lovely features is its wealth of presets and patches you can use. Simply paw through the Library for a sound or setting that inspires you!
But the Library isn’t only an all-you-can-eat buffet of pre-made sounds. You can also save your own settings and patches that are fully recallable in the future.
Logic’s Library is made up of 3 different types of “presets:”
- Plugin Settings – which are presets specific to each plugin
- Channel Strip Settings – which are an entire channel strip’s worth of plugins and their settings (including MIDI FX)
- Patches – which include all settings, plugins, routing, and Track Stacks
But what’s even cooler is you can mix and swap different parts of a patch for other patch parts.
For example, if you want to keep your reverb and delay Sends but would like to switch the instrument, you can! This is all made possible thanks to Patch Merging.
In today’s video, we’ll examine the different patches and settings. Plus, I’ll show you the beauty of Patch Merging. And then we’ll figure out how to locate Patches and Settings on your Mac.
