Matt Shadetek returns with another episode of Secret Knowledge, our Logic Pro video tutorial series of production tips, techniques and advice for Logic users. In this video, Shadetek shows looks at the technique of “re-micing.”


This technique is commonly used in studios where people are recording electric guitars where they want to capture the sound of the guitar coming out of the amplifier. In this case I’m using it for a slightly non-traditional application to add some texture and noise to make my piano feel more like an old sample and less like a digital instrument. I’ve used this technique with amplifiers to add interest to cheap sounding casio keyboards and other ‘fake sounding’ digital sources. The basics are that we create a sound and then play it out of something, either an amplifier or a speaker and then re-record the results. In this case I’m running it out of my speakers to add some room noise and then mixing that back in with the original clean signal. Hopefully this inspires you to create your own interesting recordings and some life and dirt to your clean digital sounds. — Matt Shadetek
