Sends. Busses. Auxes. For some of us these 3 words are no biggie. Part of daily life even!
For some of us though, the concept of Sends, Busses and Auxes can feel a little hazy. What do these words actually mean? And when should we even bother using a bus?
It’s a fair question. The words sends, busses, and auxes don’t really make it any easier to understand either.
And with the most recent Logic updates, the concept of Sending audio becomes even murkier with Sends on Faders and Independent Pan.
So let’s peel it back a bit.
Today I wanted to update the WLPR books on all things related to Sends, Busses and Auxes. A step-by-step walkthrough of:
- What a Send, Bus, and Auxiliary Channel actually is
- When and why we use these tools in our Logic Projects
- What the difference is between Post Pan, Post Fader, and Pre Fader
And once you’re comfortable in the fundamentals for Bussing, how to kick it up a notch with Sends on Faders and Independent Pan.
Ready to dig in? Then let’s make like Super Mario and pipe our audio around our Logic Projects.
