In this video I discussed how to mimic the behavior of the DSEQ3 with Bitwig Studio's native Loud Split device. I demonstrated how to set the Loud Split device to a 3 dB per octave tilt setting and how to adjust the loudness level, knee setting, and rise and fall settings. I showed how to identify resonances and over amplified frequencies in a mixdown and how to use the Loud Split device to reduce these frequencies. I also suggested using the Loud Split device for mastering.

In this video, I demonstrated how to create a simple auto-leveling patch in the grid. I used an oscilloscope, a divide or division operation, and a follow-off to average out the audio signal. I also implemented a threshold algorithm to make sure that the auto-leveler doesn't amplify noise annoyingly. This technique works in any modular environment and can be useful for maintaining the same loudness level for a generative grid patch or audio clip.

In this video, I show how to recreate the magic effect section of an Roland SP404 sampler hardware device in Bitwig Studio. I explain how to make a chain device to contain all of the effects, and then I go through each effect step-by-step. I demonstrate how to create a beat repeater, a bit crusher, an EQ, a delay, a filter, a pitch wobble, and a low fire effect. I also show how to use remote controls to trigger the effects and how to synchronize them to the beat grid. Finally, I provide a free preset to download in the description.
