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 today's video, I show you how to create a music track in Bitwig Studio. I start off by using various modules and sequencers to generate a melodic sequence. Then, I add convolution and delay effects to create depth and ambiance. Finally, I layer in drums and bass, apply sidechain and modulation, and add some additional melodies to complete the track.

In this video, I demonstrate how to create a quick generative patch using Bitwig. Starting with a simple setup, I gradually make it more complex over time, showing easy steps for everyone to follow. By utilizing modules like the polygrid and counter, you can create unique melodies and rhythms, and further modulate them to add variation and interest to your patches.

In yesterday's video, I showed how to connect TouchDesigner and Bitwig Studio using TD Bitwig, but many viewers were more interested in creating visuals in Bitwig. So in today's video, I demonstrate how to create generative visuals in TouchDesigner and synchronize them with music in Bitwig using TD Bitwig. I explain the steps to create a noise texture, mix layers, map audio envelopes to visuals, and use macros and remotes to modulate parameters for an interactive and visually appealing experience.

In this video, I discuss the topic of using the transit plugin in Bitwig Studio and whether it is worth it. While some may find the presets of the plugin useful, I personally find that I can easily replicate the effects and transitions using Bitwig Studio's modulation capabilities. I explain how to create similar effects within Bitwig Studio, showcasing the flexibility and potential of the software.

In today's video, I show how to create a multi-band delay effect using the polymer synthesizer as input. I demonstrate how to use the FXgrid, filters, and a mod delay to create the effect. I also implement macros for resonance, feedback, and filter cutoff. To make changing the delay timings easier, I use a step mode interface. I explain the logic behind it and how to map it to each delay. I discuss the limitations of the grid for creating interface controls and the need for better interfaces. I give examples of how the effect sounds and suggest adding a convolution reverb. I also mention the possibility of using pitch quantization and panning for more control. Overall, it's a creative way to achieve a multi-band delay effect with a flexible interface.

I tried to create a reverb by using an all-pass stage as the foundation. I used a stereo split and placed one all-pass on the left channel and the other on the right. I used a long delay and a blend knob to fit the original signal back into the patch, and then I added a modulation amount to the delay to give the reverb a more metallic feel. I then added a low pass and high pass filter to remove any low end frequencies and experimented with adding multiple all-pass devices to create a more complex reverb.

In this video, I showed how to make a patch that I created in the last video more fancy. I demonstrated how to use modulators, audio effects, and sequencing techniques in Bitwig Grid. I discussed how to use the DC offset device in the NoteFX channel and how to create a reverb and phaser inside the grid. Lastly, I showed how to use an LFO to create sequences that go beyond the 32 bar limit.

I'm showing how to create a sampler instrument from a kalimba using bitvic studio. I have sampled all the plugs on the kalimba and added effects like grain, reverb and delay. I demonstrate how these effects can be used to create a rich sound. I also show a texture mode which can create a pad sound or an eerie drone sound. If you want to download the preset, you can support my channel by going to my Patreon page and subscribing with at least one dollar.

In this video, I show various ways to utilize the pitch shifter device in Bitwig Studio. I demonstrate how adjusting the pitch knob and grain size can create pitch effects, delay effects, and even a phaser effect. 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.
