Logic Articulate Tools
for Articulate Presets

Full integration of the VSL into Logic

Taking advantage of Logic Pro’s powerful ways to extend its functionality (Environment, Scripter, …), the Articulate Tools for Logic provide a seamless and completely unprecedented integration of the VSL into Logic. They are free for all users of Articulate Presets and offer you the best possible user experience for orchestral composition in Logic. A next generation key-switching solution allows you to access all articulations included in the VSL by convenient key switches. At any time you get a full directory of the entire VSL directly in Logic’s main window and see the effect of the different continuous controllers supported by Articulate Presets (3D-control) for the selected instrument! While recording, articulations are automatically encoded in Logic’s Articulation IDs which are attributes of the notes themselves so that the articulation of a note is clearly displayed in Logic's editors. Last but not least the Logic integration implements the novel concept of an articulation sequencer. By performing all the articulation switching automatically, it allows you to play musical lines with complicated articulation changes in real time so you can concentrate on the crucial timing, phrasing and dynamics when recording them into Logic’s sequencer—thereby bringing your music to life.

  • even the most often used versions (e.g. a 3s medium decrescendo) are directly accessible via further dedicated Articulation IDs

FULL CONTROL

Articulate Presets's signature 3D-control gives you full control over the playback of various musical aspects 
like attack, vibrato, muting, or even the amazing auto-divisi section control for Dimension Libraries. All is 
clearly displayed in the Articulate 

Monitor and Logic offers convenient ways to record and edit the resulting continuous controller data.

ARTICULATE PATCHES & TEMPLATES

Articulate Patches allow you to add instruments conveniently via Logic's patch browser and all components are automatically set up. Articulate Templates available for standard configurations give you a full plug&play experience - just load the template and everything works out of the box.

ARTICULATE SEQUENCER

The Articulate Sequencer implements the novel concept of an articulation sequencer. By performing all the articulation switching automatically, it allows you to play a musical line with complicated articulation changes in real time, so you can concentrate on the crucial timing, phrasing and dynamics when recording.

ABOUT US

At Symphonic Riot we love VSL libraries and created Articulate Presets because we were looking for a better way to use them ourselves. We were so happy with the result that we want to share them.
