Questions & Answers #
Maybe you dont watch the video, here are some important takeaways:
What are Mudpie tools? #
Mudpie tools are 35 small Bitwig Studio presets that can be used to create random results on tracks or sound sources. These results can then be re-sampled and reused in the sampler to create new sounds.
How do I download Mudpie tools? #
Mudpie tools can be downloaded by subscribing to Polarity Squad on Patreon or YouTube. If you're not a subscriber, you can subscribe now and then download the presets afterwards.
How can I use Mudpie tools to create interesting sounds? #
Mudpie tools can be used to mess up sounds and create interesting random results. You can twist and turn knobs to offset bits of a drum loop, repeat sounds, add mid-range distortion, create melodies in a certain scale, add zap to a kick drum, create harmonic series, add stereo filters, make sounds louder, use delay and reverb boxes, create flutter effects, and use random beat filters.

[00:00.000] So in today's video, it's about my so-called Mudpie tools.
[00:04.760] These tools are basically 35 super small Bitwig Studio presets.
[00:11.240] And you can use these presets on tracks
[00:14.280] or on different sound sources to create some kind of messy random results.
[00:20.920] And these results you can basically re-sample and reuse it inside of the sampler
[00:26.280] and create some kind of other sounds from it.
[00:29.760] So it's more meant for messing sounds up, okay?
[00:34.600] And you can download these presets as a polarity squat subscriber on Patreon
[00:40.640] or here on YouTube.
[00:42.120] If you're not a subscriber, then you can subscribe now, of course.
[00:46.360] And you can download then afterwards.
[00:48.720] And I want to show you how they look like, what you can do with it.
[00:52.160] And yeah, let's dive in.
[01:00.480] If you want to save some money on Bitwig Studio and the upgrade plans
[01:04.640] and you want to support my channel and my content,
[01:07.560] then go to my web page, use the link to the Bitwig store,
[01:10.680] use my code and save 10% on the regular price.
[01:16.080] So I actually have to move my camera for the stream.
[01:19.200] As you can see on the right side, there are a lot of these small presets here
[01:27.160] with some random names on it.
[01:28.800] Now I also have all them here in the device chain loaded and disabled.
[01:34.640] And on the track itself, I have just some random drum loop.
[01:39.880] So nothing special.
[01:41.600] Just to show you examples of what you can do with it.
[01:45.200] So for example, here the first one is called Super Break 2,
[01:49.880] which gives you actually a low cut.
[01:52.320] And yeah, some offset where I can just turn the snob
[01:57.080] and offset some of the bits of the drums itself.
[02:02.320] So actually some of these presets are actually made
[02:05.360] from some of the tutorials I already uploaded on YouTube.
[02:08.600] So some of you may notice some similarities to some of my tutorials.
[02:15.200] So yeah, let's actually try this one here.
[02:28.800] So you can basically twist and turn the snob
[02:31.560] here in every direction or speed you want.
[02:35.480] The chain itself basically, or the grid patch here itself,
[02:40.200] makes sure that everything happens in sync.
[02:44.320] So you can't do anything wrong.
[02:47.200] Everything, every switchup, every offset change is basically made
[02:52.080] exactly on the grid with the BBM in mind.
[02:56.080] So nothing is in between the grid basically.
[02:59.920] So it's, you can just modulate this knob here
[03:04.560] and have some random drum loops occurring.
[03:08.360] So this one alone basically is enough to give you
[03:29.880] a lot of different breaks basically out of this just normal drum loop here.
[03:37.200] So for instance, you go in here and activate this and yeah,
[03:41.800] maybe just draw in here to offset just randomly like this.
[03:51.520] And then you can click this and hit bounce.
[03:56.360] Then you have a completely different drum loop here
[03:58.760] from your original drum loop.
[04:07.760] So you can mess up your original drum loop
[04:10.680] and create interesting random results for it.
[04:15.320] So that's the main reason behind all these presets, right,
[04:19.320] to create random results.
[04:20.800] So now we have your second one here.
[04:23.000] It's called repeater.
[04:24.680] It does exactly that.
[04:27.880] You press repeat and it repeats.
[04:32.120] Okay, then we have a half time plug
[04:42.200] in which makes exactly that, it's also a tutorial reason tutorial made.
[04:58.960] We have reverse.
[05:09.280] We have super break, the first one was super break too
[05:13.440] and there's a super break where we have also here.
[05:17.600] You can choose the steps, but it's it's differently wired
[05:21.000] so you can change basically here the gate triggering with the steps.
[05:26.800] So it sounds like this.
[05:42.280] So it gives you also a nice interesting drum loops out of it.
[05:46.000] Then we have here warmer.
[05:48.160] It adds a lot of mid-range sound or distortion.
[05:54.840] And you can mix it in with a dry signal.
[06:06.720] So nothing complicated, but it actually gives you a quick way of just warming up the sound
[06:12.680] by just dragging in your one of these or just give you an opportunity to treat your sounds
[06:20.400] quickly by just using these small presets basically and just track them in when you need
[06:27.240] We have here C3HS melody.
[06:41.360] So you have a threshold here which you need to tweak and then it tries to create some kind
[06:46.720] of melody in the scale of C.
[06:57.440] So again you can use this and bounce basically something out of it here.
[07:02.200] For instance just select this bounce.
[07:06.120] Then we have here, we know we have now a melody in C3 and you can use a sampler.
[07:15.160] Just put this into the sampler and because we know this is C3 we just hit here the key
[07:20.400] tracking on and then we can use the keyboard and just play around with it or activate your
[07:32.240] texture mode.
[07:41.960] So that's basically the reason behind all these tools to mess up the sound.
[07:46.620] Create something interesting in a random way and create new sounds.
[07:55.880] P5, TH, Faser, Plus 7.
[07:59.020] I think there are some pitch shifters here inside exactly 7 cemetones which is the dominant
[08:05.360] of your current root and you can create nice effects with it.
[08:11.640] So it sounds like a phaser, and when you drag it all the way down then it sounds like
[08:24.000] a granular effect, but it's always pitch 2 plus 7.
[08:30.080] Also differently I think on the left and the right channel.
[08:36.040] So interesting effect, that's the same just with the plus 5 semitones then we have a delay
[08:47.520] box one which has a threshold here inside or a threshold parameter and this means that
[08:55.120] it tries to recognize the transients and then switch up to different delay channels here
[09:06.000] with different settings and this can be interesting so you can see how the threshold
[09:17.000] decides how the transients are recognized and then we are triggering different channels
[09:23.560] on the FX selector and get different delays.
[09:41.600] Okay then we have a kick zapper which basically adds some kind of zapp or sign to your kick drum
[09:49.800] or to other sounds if you want so the sounds like this and then you just mix in the dry
[10:00.160] signal so it can add some artificial sub to your sounds then we have c3 harmonic series
[10:25.840] and that's exactly what it says so you can use the strum loop now and we have then c3
[10:46.880] and other harmonics of the harmonic series above it created just with this preset then we
[11:02.200] shift down we have chop chop
[11:30.840] something like stereo filter and you can change it basically a low pass filter on the left
[11:39.720] and the right channel and you can change by using your diff knobs to change basically
[11:47.840] the speed on the left and the right channel differently or change the rate differently
[12:00.000] on the left and right channel or change the curve of the LFO on the left on the right channel
[12:06.320] so you can create some kind of stereo information out of mono signals plant in the dry signal
[12:17.720] so something super simple but it's actually wired up for you so you don't need to create
[12:37.200] us I try to keep all these presets pretty simple and easy but just a step above the abstraction
[12:50.200] of the devices itself so we have here louder which makes everything louder just to trash
[13:04.720] the signal delay box 2 all over the threshold
[13:23.200] can be interesting warm hole also the reverb box works exactly like the delay box just
[13:48.280] with the reverbs so we have different layers of reverbs with different settings and we
[13:52.400] have a threshold here and every time and peak or transient is recognized we change here
[14:01.040] the layer to a different reverb so nice for creating weird sounds reverb on yeah some kind
[14:20.320] of reverb then we have c3 resonance where you can basically create a peak or an yeah
[14:28.920] and feedback exactly at c3 so nice for creating tonal sounds out of noise and we have some kind
[14:46.920] of flutter makes exactly that what it says we have a built beat filter with no options
[15:09.600] and we have random beat filter multi so a lot of random small presets you can use either
[15:27.520] just one by one or you can combine them also you just put them on a track here and activate
[15:36.240] some of them or just track them in and mess the sound up then you bounce down and you're
[15:43.240] good to go maybe that's something you can use as an that's actually not working this way
[16:11.240] but get some sounds out of it here at the end maybe use this as a sweep in or sweep out
[16:19.560] or impact or something like this just to get some sounds from your current sounds
[16:42.120] or maybe use reverse here let's try this only reverse bounce so I feel
[17:12.000] that the reverb sounds can just use a bit of that
[17:41.680] so maybe we can also create some kind of yeah maybe let's try the melody and use the
[17:53.880] laybox maybe use something like this bounce this out we know it's C3 so we can use it
[18:20.120] in the sample cantilitas and activate key tracking maybe go to texture mode here and
[18:35.600] on the speed
[18:52.680] And... we have a pet now.
[19:52.680] Okay, so you can create stuff this way, just use some of the presets, put it on your tracks,
[20:05.320] and create some random results, re-sample it, use it in the sampler, or just put it on audio
[20:11.080] tracks and reverse it, and you know, just fuck around with all the possibilities.
[20:17.000] So that's it for the demonstration of these plugins or presets.
[20:21.560] So as I said earlier, you can download this as a polarity squad subscriber,
