    ES2
    I'm trying to copy what I've seen and heard in the ES2 tutorials in an actual ES2 in Logic. I am finding this difficult because: Steve H is showing us on an 'unset' synth so everything he does produces that sound alone. When I go to an ES2 in Logic, every patch is already very complex and full of commands so if I try to manipulate something, there are loads of existing commands (that I know nothing about) manipulating it too. In fact some of those commands even countermand what I am trying to achieve. How can I open an ES2 which is at the same starting point as the one Steve H begins with in the tutorial? Best regards, Tim

    Hi Tim, The ES2 is quite a complex softsynth. I would recommend starting form the following ES2 preset: 12 Tutorial settings > Analog Saw Init. This gives you a basic Saw synth without all the other added vector, and LFO modulators. From here you can start adding oscillators and fiddling with the settings. Thats the best way I learnt to get around the ES2. Or I can send you a Complete Reset preset of the ES2, which I edited and saved.

    Here is a link to my ES2 Complete Reset preset. http://www.mediafire.com/?4smi3vmg44m8t4a Place this in the following folder. Then start up Logic and navigate to this preset in the ES2. Macintosh HD > Users > [i]yourusername[/i] > Library > Application Support > Logic . Plug-In Settings > ES2

    Link works fine here... Good tip when posting links is to copy the URL and then click the "Add Link" words below the Reply box and paste the link in there. [url]http://www.mediafire.com/?4smi3vmg44m8t4a[/url] The link will now behave as a hyperlink. Does this work better for you Tim?

    Re: ES2
    Sorry, Guys, It's some help, but not enough! I clicked on the link which led me to a page which offered a download called Complete Reset.pst. I clicked on it and and it appeared in my downloads window. I clicked on that and it generated a new song for me in Logic. I accepted that (and closed my current song) but then, I got a new window which said: 'The document "Complete Reset.pst" could not be opened'. Duuh! I guess there's a step missing somewhere? Best regards, Tim

    Hi Tim, Did your place the Complete Reste.pst file in your ES2 Preset folder? (Macintosh HD > Users > [i]yourusername[/i] > Library > Application Support > Logic > Plug-In Settings > ES2) Then when you open a Logic Project, insert the ES2 on an instrument channel. The Complete Reset will be in your ES2 presets. Or alternatively you can get to ii in the Media > Library tab.
