The harpsichord was widely used in Renaissance and Baroque music. During the late 18th century, it gradually disappeared from the musical scene with the rise of the piano. But in the 20th century, it made a resurgence, being used in historically informed performance of older music, in new (contemporary) compositions, and in popular culture.

Using EXS24 / EXSP24 mkII Samplers

Apple's EXSP24 mkII is a sample player plugin available for Logic Express. The plugin is a play-only version of Apple's EXS24 mkII sampler plugin.
 

How do I get the EXS MKII?

If you use Logic 5.5 or above, your EXS is automatically changed to the EXS mk II. This is because the EXS already exists inside every version of Logic.  It's "built-in".  You just need the software key to unlock it.  In Logic Pro 6 and above, its just always there, nothing you need to do.

Syntheway Virtual Musical Instruments - Apple's EXSP24 mkII is a sample player plugin available for Logic Express. The plugin is a play-only version of Apple's EXS24 mkII sampler plugin.

EXS24 mkII is a software sampler. It plays back audio files, called samples, that you load into it. These samples are combined into tuned, organized collections called sampler instruments. As sampler instruments are based on audio recordings, they are ideally suited to emulating real instruments such as guitars, pianos, and drums. Supported Sample Formats (loads or saves) include AIFF, Akai, EXS24, SDII, SF2, WAV. With robust synthesis options, support for sampled instruments of almost any size, and 16 outputs for flexible mixing and sound processing, it’s easy to bring sample-based sounds to your production.

 

Using the EXS24 mkII Sampler Instruments Pop-Up Menu

The EXS24 mkII ships with a ready-to-play sampler instrument library.

To load an instrument

About EXS24 Sample Storage Locations

In order to be visible in the EXS24 mkII Sampler Instruments pop-up menu, instruments must be stored in the Sampler Instruments sub-folder of any of the following folders:

  • ~/Library/Application Support/Logic: User-defined or edited instruments are stored here.

  • /Library/Application Support/Logic: Factory-supplied EXS instruments are installed here.

  • /Applications/Logic 6 Series: EXS instruments of the Logic Express 6 Series are stored here.

  • …/ProjectName: Logic Express also searches for EXS Instruments in the project folder.

Note: You can store your sampler instruments in any folder on any of your computer’s hard drives. Simply create an alias pointing to this folder within a Sampler Instruments sub-folder (in any of the paths listed above) and they will be shown in the Sampler Instruments pop-up menu.

To browse to the next or previous instrument in your sampler instrument library

Loading EXS24 Sampler Instruments from Other Locations

You can manually load sampler instruments that are not shown in the Sampler Instruments pop-up menu. This is done from the Instrument pop-up menu in the Instrument Editor window.

To load sampler instruments from other locations

  1. Open the Instrument Editor by clicking the Edit button in the upper-right corner of the Parameter window.

    Figure. Edit button.

  2. Choose Instrument > Open, then locate the desired instrument in the dialog.

Searching for EXS24 Sampler Instruments

To minimize the number of sampler instruments displayed in the Sampler Instruments pop-up menu, you can use the Find function. This limits the Sampler Instruments pop-up menu to displaying only sampler instrument names that contain the search term.

To search for sampler instruments

  1. Click to open the Sampler Instruments pop-up menu, then choose Find.

  2. Enter the search term in the Filter window.

    Figure. Search Filter window.

To disable the Search Filter

  • Choose Clear Find in the Sampler Instruments pop-up menu.

The full Sampler Instruments pop-up menu is displayed, but the search term you typed into the Filter window is not cleared. You can return to the limited menu by choosing Enable Find in the Sampler Instruments pop-up menu. This allows you to switch between the two views without re-typing the search term.

To perform a different search

  • Choose the Find command again and enter the desired search term.

Opening the EXS24 mkII Instrument Editor

Click the Edit button to the right of the Sampler Instruments pop-up menu to open the currently loaded sampler instrument in the EXS24 mkII Instrument Editor window. The Instrument Editor window provides precise control over each sample, or zone, in the sampler instrument.

Note: Clicking the Edit button when no sampler instrument is loaded also opens the Instrument Editor window and automatically creates a new, empty, sampler instrument.

Figure. Options button.

Using the EXS24 mkII Options Pop-Up Menu Commands

Click the Options button in the upper-right corner of the Parameter window. This opens the Options pop-up menu, which contains the following commands:

  • Recall default EXS24 settings: Recalls a neutral setting for all parameters in the Parameter window. This provides a “clean slate” when adjusting the parameters of your sampler instrument.

  • Recall settings from instrument: Recalls the original parameter settings of the loaded sampler instrument. This parameter is useful if you’ve been overzealous with your tweaking and want to return to the original sampler instrument parameter settings.

  • Save settings to instrument: Stores the current parameter values of the Parameter window in the sampler instrument file. When the instrument is reloaded, these values are recalled.

  • Delete settings from instrument: Removes the stored settings (Parameter window values) from the sampler instrument file.

  • Rename instrument: Opens a file save dialog, allowing you to rename the loaded instrument. This overwrites the existing instrument name.

  • Save instrument as: Opens a file save dialog, allowing you to enter an alternative name for the loaded instrument. This preserves the original name and sampler instrument file, and creates a new sampler instrument—a copy.

    Note: This is a good, safe option to use, as any projects or templates that use the originally named sampler instrument will work as expected.

  • Delete instrument: Deletes the loaded sampler instrument.

  • (Recall default EXS24 mkI settings): Recalls the parameter settings of sampler instruments created in the older version of the EXS24—notably, the modulation paths. This parameter is not relevant for sampler instruments created in the EXS24 mkII.

  • Extract MIDI Region(s) from ReCycle Instrument: Extracts regions contained in a ReCycle instrument. If no ReCycle instrument is selected, this option is dimmed.

  • AKAI Convert: Launches the AKAI Convert window

  • SoundFont Convert, SampleCell Convert, DLS Convert, Giga Convert: Each of these commands launches a dialog with instructions about performing these conversions.

  • Preferences: Opens the EXS24 mkII preferences

  • Virtual Memory: Opens a configuration window for the EXS24 mkII’s virtual memory functions. Virtual memory allows samples of almost unlimited length to be played back—by streaming audio directly from the hard disk in real time. The virtual memory window also allows you to enable direct access to system memory for the EXS24 mkII—in systems with 5 GB of RAM or more.

Notes: EXSP24 mkII is an update to the earlier EXSP24. In 2007 the product was discontinued and Logic Express now includes the full EXS24 sampler instead of this sample player. EXSP24 mkII (which stands for "Emagic Xtreme Sample Player 24-bit, mark II") plays samples with bit depths from 8 to 24, at sample rates from 11 kHz to 96 kHz, using sample formats including AIFF, EXS24, WAV, SDII, SoundFont2, and AKAI S1000/3000, and with up to 64-note polyphony.
