Logic Pro’s ES2 is a powerful subtractive synth with seemingly endless possibilities. A plethora of modulation options means that we can transform a bland synth patch into an evolving, exciting pad or lead. ES2’s Router, found at the bottom panel, allows us to use LFOs and envelopes to bring movement to our pathces.
