#2 – Logic´s RTA

No acustic treatment in your room ? Sitting in a other logic based project studio with different monitor speakers and you don´t know how your mix will translate?

Get visual help from a Real Time Analyzer (RTA)!

It measures and displays the frequency spectrum of your work.

You will find a factory RTA in the  “MultiMeter” (insert -> utility -> multimeter) but not as fast and easy to understand like the RTA of Logic´s “Channel EQ”


Set Up

1. 2 Bus (Output) -> last insert -> Channel EQ

2. Turn on the Analyzer Button

3. Change the resolution to high (4096 Points)

– Hidden Menu (Bottom) –

4. Set Analyzer Mode to peak

5. Set Analyzer Decay to your taste


Create a new logic session just for your own reference tracks and get used to the RTA.
