Creating Trumpet Sounds with Subtractive Synthesis in Bitwig Grid

Jul 24, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I demonstrate how to create a trumpet or saxophone sound in Bitwig's grid using subtractive synthesis. I avoid using samples, wavetables, or physical modeling. The sound is shaped using pinch and bend modules, as well as a phaser, before going through a filter and an amplitude modulation module. I also add filtered noise to simulate the air going through the horn. To simulate the characteristics of different instruments, I use fixed frequencies in an EQ module. An impulse response and delay are used to simulate room and add space to the sound. The main trick of the preset is shaping the phase signal with pinch and bend modules, which creates trumpet-like harmonics from a sine wave. I use Bitwig's expression modulator to map timbre, pitch bend, and pressure to add expression to the sound. I show how to do this in a separate polygrid. It took some time to find the right modulation amounts and timings, but the result is a cool and realistic trumpet sound. The preset is available for Patreon and YouTube subscribers, while others can try out the techniques I demonstrated.

Explaining my Favorite EQ Plus Init Settings for Pitch Tracking in Bitwig Studio 3.2

Jun 08, 2020 Tutorial
In this video, I explain my favorite init settings for the EQ Plus in Bitwig Studio 3.2. I start with a completely empty project and add a fully grid, saw wave, ADSR, and an audio art. With the EQ Plus, I remove all the init settings to start fresh. I explain the harmonic series, which produces harmonic overtones when using a saw wave. To set up bands for these harmonics, I add a band for the fundamental frequency of C3. I save the EQ Plus as an init preset to remember that changing the gain for the first band changes the fundamental frequency. I add bands for the different harmonics and use the key track to keep track of the pitch or notes played. The key track also keeps track of any pitch band girfs applied. I saved this as an init preset for pitch tracking or note tracking, which works well for monophonic sounds such as bass sounds. I also demonstrate how the EQ Plus follows pitch tracking custom pitch tracking and works alongside the kick drum. Overall, this is a useful trick in a toolbox to apply to EQs and other instruments.

I also explore using the pitch shifter device in combination with other devices, such as the stereo splitter and mid-side split, to create unique stereo effects. Additionally, I discuss using the pitch shifter device for reverb and the possibility of layering multiple pitch shifters for interesting results. Overall, I hope this video provides inspiration for incorporating the pitch shifter device into your own music production.

Using Your Voice as a Phase Input Signal to Create Unique Sounds

Jun 28, 2019 Tutorial
In this video, I demonstrated how to use your voice as a phase input signal to an oscillator. I showed how you can use the pulley grid and the hardware input module to phase distort a triangle oscillator using your voice or microphone as an input. I also discussed how you can shape your voice using distortion, high-pass, and low-pass filters before applying it to the phase input. Additionally, I showed how you can use the zero crossing module to create a pitch signal from a sine wave, allowing you to sing and have the oscillator follow your pitch. Overall, using your voice as a phase input signal can lead to interesting and unique sounds in bass lines or lead sounds.

How to Create a Tape Stop Device and Wave Tables in Bitwig

Jun 14, 2019 Tutorial
In this video, I show you how to create a tape stop effect using Bitwig's FXgrid device. I use delays, ADSR, and gain volume to create the effect. By adjusting the delay buffer size, you can achieve the slow down and speed up effect of a tape stop. I also demonstrate how to create flutter effects using tape emulation plugins. Additionally, I explain how to create wave tables in Bitwig by using wave files and the sampler instrument. By using the cycles mode and wave table position knob, you can scan through the wave tables and create unique sounds.

Updates to My GitHub Repository, Bitwig Community Presets, and Preset Party App

Jun 05, 2019 Tutorial
In the video, the person gives an update on their GitHub repository and its content. They inform that they have made some changes to reduce the size of the repository by removing certain folders. Now, it only contains Bitwig presets and can be easily cloned into the Bitwig library. They also mention potential plans to split the repository into different versions for Bitwig 1, 2, and 3 in the future. The person then talks about renaming their Bitwig presets repository to Bitwig community presets to clarify that the presets are from the community, not their own. They mention that the monthly Bitwig competition is currently not very active but plan to add a bot to a Discord chat where users can upload presets and discuss them. These presets will be automatically added to the repository.Lastly, they discuss changes made to the preset party app, which is a standalone application for managing the repositories. They show how to change the path of the Bitwig library and how to download and update the repositories. They mention that the initial download may take longer but subsequent updates will be faster as only the changes are downloaded.

Creating Unique and Immersive Presets for Bitwig Studio 3.0 Sneak Peek at the Physical Piano

Jun 02, 2019 Tutorial
In this update video, I talk about how I have been busy with my daily job and preparing presets for the release of Bitwig Studio 3.0. I explain that my goal is to have a collection of good sounding presets ready for new users who want to explore what's possible with the grid. I showcase a piano emulation I created using filters and physical modeling synthesis, along with mechanical sounds from a friend's piano. I also introduce a new reverb called Kitchverb and discuss using random modulation to create an organic feel. I share a work-in-progress version of the piano preset on my GitHub repository and provide a link in the description. I also mention that my friend, Skyance, has released a sample pack on a new website called Intimate Noise and I encourage viewers to check it out. Lastly, I ask for feedback on the piano preset and mention that I will be discussing other patches in upcoming videos.

Introducing: Drum and Bass Project Loops for Music Creation and Learning

May 26, 2019 Tutorial
In this short video, I wanted to share a project with you that contains five different scenes for creating drum and bass tunes. Each scene has different loops and tracks, separated into categories like kicks, snares, bass, and atmospherics. I've added some compressors to glue the sounds together, but there's not much processing going on. I use a main kick on every draft, sometimes layered with different top kicks for texture. The bass sounds are created with the Phase Four synth, which I find works well for drum and bass. I've also included step sounds, a piano, and a pad sound. This project is a starting point for creating your own drum and bass tracks, and I'll continue adding more to it in the future. I would love any feedback or suggestions for additions or changes. You can download the project from my GitHub repository and have fun experimenting with it. Thank you for watching!
