Lesson 1. Exploring the Workspace > Using Audio Instruments

Using Audio Instruments

Logic 7 has become a virtual production studio, complete with many software instruments (called Audio Instruments) that generate nothing short of awesome sounds. Indeed, with 32-bit floating-point internal processing and support for sampling rates of up to 192 kHz (hardware permitting), Logic's internal instruments sound as good as, or better than, most of the hardware synthesizers on the market. These days you need little more than a laptop, a MIDI controller keyboard, and Logic to create songs of the highest caliber.

Logic's Audio Instruments are assigned as inputs to a special type of track, called an Audio Instrument track. A hybrid between MIDI and audio tracks, Audio Instrument tracks use MIDI to trigger sounds from the inserted instrument. If you take a quick look at the Arrange window, you'll notice that two of the song's tracks use MIDI Regions instead of Audio Regions. These are Audio Instrument tracks.
