In this video, I discuss the problem of using delays in situations where there is a shuffle or groove setting. When a straight melody is overlaid with a shuffled delay, it can sound off and disrupt the groove. To address this, I demonstrate how to create a shuffled delay using the FX grid and a feedback loop, allowing the delay to align with the groove setting. I provide a patch for download and encourage viewers to try it out and provide feedback.

In this video, I show you a simple way to synchronize melodies or bass lines to a sloppy drum groove using Bitwig. By using a note grid and the audio signal from the drum channel, I demonstrate how to use an audio follower and delay to detect the transients in the drum loop and use them as a clock signal to synchronize the arpeggiator. This technique allows you to apply a custom groove to your melodies while maintaining the swing feel of the drums.

In this video, I share my experience with replacing VST plugins and discuss how companies don't actually hate me for it because of the advantages offered by certain plugins. I demonstrate how to replicate the features of a reverb shaper using a chain device, tool device, and convolution reverb in Bitwig Studio. Additionally, I explore the unique effects that can be created using the fade mode in the Delay Plus device.
