In this video, I start off by creating a synthwave-style drum pattern using traditional 707 sounds. I then create chords using a synth plugin, layering them to create a retro 80s sound. Next, I add a bassline and a simple top line melody to complete the arrangement. Finally, I add vocals, strings, and additional piano elements to enhance the track, creating a full synthwave composition.

In this video, I take the opportunity to create a new tune with a Finnish vibe. Starting with a kick drum and bass, I add in a simple saw melody and some chords for depth. I also incorporate hi-hats, claps, vocals, and percussion to enhance the composition, resulting in a complete track that captures the essence of Finnish music.

In this video, I showcase an interesting technique in Bitwig where I create a musical composition using only a node grid instead of traditional note creation methods. By manipulating pitch ratios, step mods, and triggers, I generate unique polyrhythmic patterns and head sounds. I demonstrate how to use the node grid to control multiple instruments, apply effects like reverb and convolution, and create complex chord progressions using subtract and quantize modules.

In my video, I explore creating ambient-infused music using Bitwig 5 for absolute beginners who have a small MIDI keyboard. I start with a demo version of the M1 synth and sample its sounds to create a wave table oscillator. I then demonstrate how to manipulate the wave table position, polyphony, panning, and random modulation to shape the ambient sound. Finally, I add effects such as reverb, delay, and a convolution reverb to enhance the overall atmosphere of the track.

In this video, I explore creating a jazzy loop in Bitwig Studio, despite having no knowledge of jazz. I demonstrate various techniques, such as using chords, the Wurlitzer instrument, and manipulating drum patterns. I also highlight a new feature I discovered in Bitwig Studio relating to note snapping and share other tricks like using the note grid and synchronizing clocks with side chain signals.

In this video, I start creating a drum and bass track from scratch using only stock devices in Bitwig Studio. I demonstrate how to create a kick drum, hi-hats, and a snare drum, and then layer them together to create a cohesive drum pattern. I also add a bassline and a background drone to add depth to the track.

In this video, I create a generative ambient patch from scratch using Bitwig Studio. I start by creating a drone sound using polygrid and adding pitch modulation to create different pitches on the left and right sides. I then add effects like chorus and filters to add depth and modulation to the sound.
