In this video, I discuss the new update for the Fog Convolver 2 plugin by Audio Thing. The update includes a space simulator created by Lese, which allows users to adjust various room parameters, generate impulse responses, and export them as wave files for use in convolution devices like Bitwig Studio. I also mention that if viewers don't own Fog Convolver 2, they can check out Lese's plugin called Eigen, which offers similar features as a standalone space simulator.

In this video, I share my process of capturing impulse responses inside Bitwig Studio. I demonstrate how to use a test-tone device to generate the desired impulses, export and edit them in an audio editor, and then use a sampler and convolution device in Bitwig Studio to create unique reverbs. I also explain the importance of combining convolution reverbs with algorithmic reverbs for a more dynamic and realistic sound.

In this video, I share some tips and tricks for sound design in Bitwig Studio. I start by showing how to use the System Audio Bridge and Rolling Sampler tools to record audio from the browser into Bitwig. Then, I demonstrate how to use a sample to shape a sign oscillator in order to create a richer kick drum sound. Next, I show how to use a convolution device to add tonality to a hi-hat and how to apply this technique to synth sounds as well. Finally, I demonstrate how to use convolution for clap and percussion sounds and how to shape these sounds using various modules in Bitwig. Overall, the key to getting the most out of these techniques is to pay attention to the input sound and shape it appropriately to achieve the desired results.

In this video, I showed some tricks and inspirations for using convolution reverb. I explained that it can be seen as an Instagram filter for your sounds and can be used to replicate hardware devices, effect chains, and even create interesting rhythmic effects. I also showed how to use impulse responses from external hardware devices and VST plug-ins, as well as using a noise burst and an ADSR to create a fake diffusion network. All of this can be done in a CPU-efficient way, making convolution reverb a very versatile effect.

In this video, I explore the concept of convolution and whether it's possible to do inside the grid of Bitwig Studio. I showcase a preset I created that allows users to alter an input signal with a convolution signal. I explain the basic concept of convolution, which involves multiplying an input signal with an impulse response and adding it to the output signal. I share a website that helped me understand convolution better and demonstrate how I tried to make the preset work within the limitations of the grid in Bitwig Studio. I acknowledge that this preset has its flaws and limitations, but I still offer it for those who want to experiment and learn more. Overall, this video is a documentation of my learning process and I invite viewers to share their ideas and insights in the comments.
