Introducing Piano Delays Preset Package - Create Unique Atmospheres with Bitwig Studio!

Tutorial | Apr 12, 2021

In this video, I showcase my new piano delays preset package, which is available on my Patreon for the five bucks tier. I demonstrate how it works by using the new electric keys package from bitwig studio. I explain how the seven presets work, such as creating fragments, slowing down and pitching up the delay signal, and creating a nice evolving atmosphere. I also mention how it can be used to sample for a sampler. I invite viewers to subscribe to my Patreon for the five bucks tier to download this package and have some fun.

[00:00.000] Hey guys, welcome back to another video today. It's about my new preset package called
[00:04.880] piano delays. It's available on my Patreon for the five bucks cheer
[00:09.760] When you subscribe, you can download this if you're already subscribed. You can just go to Patreon download it and have some fun
[00:16.400] Um, and yeah, it's it's a package consisting of seven presets that you can put on some key instruments or
[00:24.560] My piano was and it creates some kind of atmosphere or delay or rework around it
[00:31.200] It's a bit more than that. It's it's you know, it creates some kind of sequence
[00:35.920] evolving over time and
[00:38.560] I wasn't inspired by this um
[00:40.960] drip plug-in where you can see the ad on Instagram all the time and it's like you have this random
[00:48.160] um preset thing vst effect device and you put it on some simple sounds and then you get magic out of it or something new that inspires you or
[01:00.880] Is at least a bit more fancy than the um sound you
[01:06.160] Input, okay, so I want to showcase some of the presets in this video. I show you how it works
[01:12.400] and
[01:13.200] Yeah, let's start
[01:14.720] Um, so here we are in bitwig studio. I don't know the version exactly
[01:19.280] um
[01:20.480] 3.3.5
[01:22.720] So this is what you need at least to run these plugins or presets and to showcase these I want to use the new electric keys package by bitwig
[01:33.680] um
[01:35.360] electric key
[01:38.720] S
[01:39.520] Let's go here for a road because I like it
[01:45.200] So let's try this out
[01:52.720] Maybe we make the release a bit longer here
[02:01.120] Nice
[02:02.320] Okay, so now we have a
[02:04.640] kind of random
[02:07.040] simple sound and we now need my piano delays and you can go here to the preset browser
[02:14.160] And just a tropiano delays just one word and then you get here
[02:19.040] one two three four five six seven presets
[02:24.640] And yeah, let's drag them on so the first one is fragments here and it's called fragments because it creates fragments
[02:31.760] This is uh
[02:36.960] Um, yeah, and when you play now the sound here
[02:45.200] Get little noise bursts
[02:47.200] You can also change the diffusion of these sounds
[03:01.600] I put a mixer to 100% so you can hear all need the fragment
[03:11.120] Oh my god, completely dry
[03:13.120] You
[03:16.320] Maybe change the grain
[03:27.440] So this this uh preset is more meant to be combined with all the other reverb's right you can
[03:35.440] Of course, you're using just a regular bitric delay
[03:49.280] And the ear is more like these small little particles or noise bursts um and have some you know create some ear candy
[03:59.520] So maybe delete this here and go for gismund
[04:03.120] And
[04:05.600] And I also put here the mix all the way up to 50% and there's also a limit knob here on all these presets
[04:12.400] And this basically limiter at the end of the chain where you can drive in the wet signal only
[04:18.400] Into the limiter so you can increase the loudness of the
[04:22.480] of the wet signal a bit
[04:24.560] Um, because I designed all these delays a bit more subtle so you have a just you know in the background as an
[04:32.000] As a backdrop
[04:42.480] What if you want to do some ambient
[04:46.080] Songs or you know ambient bits then you maybe want to have this louder and more prominent in your in your songs
[04:53.600] We can just amp up the wet signal here a bit
[05:08.960] But I I really prefer to have to see more like in the background um, so I have it all the time mostly at 30%
[05:16.160] Um, there are some others things you can change for instance the shimmer which brings in some high pitched sounds
[05:46.640] You
[05:56.880] Uh with tapes here. I think I just meant to I have some
[06:01.840] Some half-time presets in there. I created for the mud by tools package
[06:07.680] Also some double-time
[06:10.160] presets to speed up and slow down the
[06:12.720] Delay signal and you can blend this in here with these with this with this knob right so you can completely remove all the
[06:21.360] Uh
[06:22.560] Half-time and double-time presets
[06:36.880] I'll change some feedback on some of these delay
[06:39.360] Um, the late devices also on the reverb here can completely remove the reverb in the chain
[06:45.840] So a lot of options here. I have where I can influence the sound
[06:50.240] So the next one is magical
[06:52.720] You can see I'm pretty creative for the names here
[06:55.040] So let's try this one out
[07:17.760] It's just fun to play around with this
[07:19.520] Because it's kind of a second player or you play with yourself in the in the past
[07:26.560] So you play some kind of pattern and then it repeats just two bars after that
[07:31.120] And then you play something different so you play back and forth with yourself all the time
[08:01.600] So yeah, it's pretty fun
[08:10.880] Then we have your questions
[08:14.000] So it's it's basically a nice delay package when you're a board of your current delays
[08:20.160] They don't too much than just delaying and uh, yeah, reverbing the sound
[08:25.680] Um, here's basically more in it. There's a lot of um
[08:28.560] Um, slowing down pitching up and adding some fragments and um, yeah, cutting up the the amplitude here and there so
[08:59.520] You
[09:10.880] Can also go with the limiter in in the negative range if you think the wet signals too loud
[09:17.280] So this is also possible
[09:47.920] Okay, this is called question questions in your school here
[09:52.000] You
[10:12.560] Then we have this one here. I also previewed this on my instagram account, I think
[10:17.520] Oh, let's get that limiter up
[10:27.520] It's pretty subtle
[10:58.000] You
[11:12.480] Can also bring up the mid gain here, but because I cut out the mid the mid the mid part
[11:18.080] Which can bring this back here with the mid gain
[11:20.640] It's just in djq basically where I remove the mid
[11:23.680] And also you can change the bandwidth of the mid of this djq with this one here
[11:31.440] You can completely amp up the mid or remove the mid
[11:59.440] That's great. It's a nice
[12:03.440] Evolving atmosphere. You can also maybe sample for the sampler
[12:08.480] Use it as a nice sampling source
[12:10.480] Yeah, last year we have taped which tries to emulate a bit of a tape recorder with some um some chorus
[12:30.800] Yeah, there's also a heavy EQ in there
[12:45.360] Get this typical typical EQ curve of a cassette tape
[12:49.360] Also distortion and noise
[12:56.720] So this is without
[13:26.800] Maybe also nice to combine this with the other presets here, right?
[13:35.520] Yeah, so this is basically the whole package you get on my Patreon page
[13:40.880] And like I said, I plan to do more stuff like this also for other
[13:45.760] Instruments like bass sounds where we have put in like I don't know a sine wave and then you put on a preset
[13:51.600] And it's instantly a nice
[13:52.960] Fat mid-range dubstep bass, I don't know, software like this
[13:57.600] It's a lot of fun to actually create presets like this for bitwix studio
[14:03.120] Because I can completely dive into the modulation system go go completely wild with it and
[14:11.840] Yeah, also create nice content for you guys
[14:15.520] So yeah, that's it for this video. I think I tried to showcase everything
[14:20.640] If you have some questions then please let me know in the comments of course and
[14:28.400] Yeah, like I said, it's available on my Patreon for the five bucks tier
