Eli starts off by familiarizing you with the plugin’s installation process and basic layout. You’ll learn how to work with the Theme Browser, using the Basic, Melodic, Chromatic, and Arpeggio Themes, to sample the various styles possible within the plugin as well as save, edit, and import customized Themes. The Phrase Browser is covered next, enabling you to combine various phrases within a Theme’s high and low ensembles. Eli then demonstrates the Module Browser, which allows you to freely combine several recorded modules and articulations to create complete phrases.
Next, explore the Editing Module and follow along as Eli builds a theme from the ground up by editing various modules to generate fresh high and low ensemble phrases. Discover the power of the Arpeggiator and its various playback modes, hearing how it interacts with different modules.
For the remainder of the course, Eli demonstrates several other helpful features, including a quick drag-and-drop function that allows you to quickly export MIDI phrases for further processing in your DAW. Learn about the Mixer, which allows for precise control over the sound with multiple mic options, flexible output routing, EQ treatment of the high and low ensembles separately, FX send/return for reverb, and more! You’ll finish out the course by following Eli as he builds a short orchestral piece from scratch, tying together all the previously covered features with an effective musical demonstration!
