In this video, I demonstrated how to use the Voxango Shine Chilla, a distortion overdrive or saturation effect. I showed how to use the threshold and harmonic pages to generate overtones and how to use the saturation page to create rich overtones in the top end. I also went through the other features of the plug-in, such as the question mark, the naming field, the undo/redo, the A/B comparison, the channel routing settings, the group soloing, and the settings page. If you are interested in the plug-in, there is a link to the Voxango page in the description where you can download the demo version and try it out for yourself.

I created a preset card hardclip for Bitwig Studio to clip the peaks of audio signals without going into the red or having intersample issues. The preset consists of Bit8, initial settings and two tool devices. I explained how to use it and how it can help to make a track sound louder and more percussive. I shared the preset in the description of the video, in my GitHub repository, on bitwig.community/presets and on the Bitwig Discord. I encourage viewers to save money and support my channel by using the link to the Bitwig Store with my code.

I created some presets for 3.3, which I think will be released in a few weeks. I included 9 mid-range sounds, some pads and some plugs, with 4 knobs for remote controls. I also included some modulations and ADSRs with different repeating and timing, so you can get different tonalities and movements out of it. I also included some bass lines for drum bass and dub7, so that you can have more fun playing around with them.

In this tutorial, I explained my thought process for producing drum and bass inside the studio from start to finish. I started with the bass first, and explained how I use smooth ball synths to create the bass groove, which then influences the pattern of the drums. I also shared some tips on how to create interesting patterns, such as using automation and steps mode to modulate the pitch, LFO and ADSR. Finally, I explained how to use reverb, distortion, chorus, and EQ to add effects to the bass and create a unique sound.

In this video, I showed two examples of how I use the transient shape tool on a daily basis. I showed how I use it to glue together multiple drum loops, and how I use it in conjunction with an FX2 or FX3 device to make drum sounds more punchy and aggressive. I also discussed how it can be used to bring out the attack of a kick drum, or to remove the sustain of a snare sound. I hope this video gave you some ideas on how to use the transient shape tool in your own productions.
