Polyrhythms and Polymeters with Clips in Bitwig

Jan 16, 2024 Tutorial
In the last couple of videos, I discussed pulley rhythms and pulley meters in the Bitwig grid. Today, I want to take a look at how these concepts apply to the Arranger window and Clip Launcher, and share a tip on combining multiple instrument tracks for one synthesizer. By utilizing polyrhythms and polymeters, you can create interesting and complex patterns by varying the subdivisions and clip lengths. This technique can be enhanced further by grouping multiple clips and having them played by a single synthesizer on a group track.

Arranging a Drum and Bass Loop into a Full Song

Jan 01, 2024 Tutorial
In this video, I demonstrate the process of arranging a drum and bass loop into a full song. I explain that while the initial creative stage of creating loops is fun, arrangement requires more work and decision-making. I add various elements such as percussion sounds, rides, crashes, and additional effects to enhance the track and create an interesting DJ-friendly arrangement.

Creating Micro Arrangements with Bitwig Studio's Global Modulators

Apr 27, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I recap my previous videos on replacing VST plugins and efficient clip launcher workflows. I also share my tips on using the clip launcher and global modulators for micro-arrangement. By extending the life cycle of clips with operators and modulators, I demonstrate how to create interesting arrangements without having to draw everything in the arranger. I recommend creating a template with pre-set global modulators for easy use in future projects. The core idea is to make more out of one bar loops and to use modulation to do the heavy lifting in arrangement.

Create Risers and Transitions with Bitwig Global Modulators

Apr 24, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I share my process of creating risers and transitioning effects using the global modulator in Bitwig Studio. I was inspired by UJAM's final boost and Data Life's Endless Smile plugins and wanted to replicate the effects in Bitwig. Instead of using manual automation, I used the curve editor to create a ramp that gradually increases the effect's intensity over time. I demonstrated how to apply this technique to individual tracks, such as chords, bass, and percussion, to create more dynamic and interesting effects with precise control. This technique is a great VST replacement and allows for more creative flexibility in creating risers and sweeps in your music.

Improving Workflow and Arranging with Bitwig Studio & Launchpad Controller

Apr 20, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I show a bad habit I've developed over the years of using Bitwig Studio. I double click on the clips to edit the nodes, which means I have to constantly switch between the chain and the clips. I explore a new workflow using shortcuts such as page up and page down, and the tab key to switch between the chain and node editor. I suggest using the clip launcher as a resource panel to progress into an arrangement. I show how to create different iterations of an initial idea by utilizing small creative differences between scenes. This way, creators already have resources to try out combinations to progress into an arrangement. Lastly, I share that I got my launchpad today, and I plan to use it to create tutorials in the future.

Using Automation to Enhance Your Music Arrangement

Feb 22, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I'm talking about how automation can be used to progress your track, how to use it as an arrangement tool, and why it's the most important thing you have in your tool belt. I explain how I use automation to draw in value changes over time and introduce a storyline to my arrangement. I also discuss how I use modulation to give my sound an organic feel and how to use automation to make more drastic changes to progress my track. Finally, I demonstrate how I use automation to introduce a groove and rhythm to the listener and give them a sense of when something is happening in the track.
