Synthesizing Snare and Rimshot Sounds: Easy Setup for Drum and Bass & Dubstep | Tutorial

Sep 11, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I'm going to show you my setup for synthesizing snare and rimshot sounds using the pulley grid in my DAW. I use the pulse oscillator because it already has a lot of overtones, so I don't need to use as much post-effects distortion. I set the frequency to around 150-160 Hz for a deep snare sound. I use an AD envelope to trigger the sound and apply an EQ5 in the PostFX to analyze and shape the signal. By adjusting the sync, I can create two partials or amplify the second harmonic. I add a Moog low pass filter and use the shape output of the AD envelope for frequency modulation. This creates a nice snare sound. I also add some noise using a noise burst and a mixer. I shape the noise with segments and use a high pass filter. I then apply a hard clip and use dither and diffusion for added spice. The EQ is crucial for shaping the sound, and by cutting below 1k and boosting around 1k, I can create a rimshot sound. I can also tweak the settings to create deep snare sounds. I can detune the oscillator slightly for a wider sound. Overall, there are many possibilities for customization using these knobs and EQs. I can also add pitch modulation if desired. Finally, I can apply a convolution effect to add roominess to the sound. This setup is great for drum and bass, dubstep, and other genres, providing a clean and focused sound.

Overall, I discuss how this journey of experimenting with different techniques allowed me to create interesting and unique bass patches.

The Wishlist: Small Changes to Make Bitwig Studio Even More Awesome

Aug 24, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I talk about some small changes I would like to see in future versions of Bitwig Studio. I acknowledge that Bitwig Studio is already amazing and I have no complaints about it. However, there are some features that I think could be improved upon. One feature I feel needs some love is the recorder module in the grid. It lacks persistence, meaning that when you save and reload a preset or project, any recorded data is lost. I suggest adding a feature to persist data or introduce a module similar to the sample and hold that can save values.

How to Learn the Grid: Trial and Error, Research, and Problem Solving in Music Production

Aug 21, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I discuss how to learn and understand the grid in music production. Many people have misconceptions that taking a course will make them a professional musician, but that's not how it works. A course can provide the basics, but real learning happens through trial and error, researching and experimenting. I explain that it's important to overcome problems on your own and develop problem-solving skills. It's not about memorizing individual modules, but rather understanding how to use them in different contexts. I emphasize the importance of researching online, reading the manual, and exploring different resources to gain knowledge. I also share my own process of learning, documenting, and experimenting with patches. Learning music production is an ongoing process that involves constant learning and building experience.

The Power of Intervals: Understanding Melodies, Chords, and Scale Highlighting Features

Aug 07, 2023 Tutorial
In today's video, I want to discuss melodies, chords, and scale highlighting features. Somebody commented on my previous video about using a note grid that emits random melodies and modifying it with a key filter to accommodate those who are less familiar with music theory. However, I believe this approach is not feasible because the scale highlighting feature in Ableton Live, for example, can be misleading. When you select the scale feature in Ableton Live, it highlights certain notes in green. For C major, all the white keys are highlighted. However, it also selects other scales and modes such as D Dorian, E Phrygian, and so on.

Creating Music in Bitwig Studio: Using Global Modulators and Unique Triggering Techniques

Jul 31, 2023 Tutorial
In the video, I showed how to make music in Bitwig Studio using global modulators. I used two step modulators, one for values and one for melody. I connected them to a polymer synthesizer and routed them through a node grid. I used the values from the step modulator to modulate various parameters in the synthesizer, such as decay time, amplitude envelope, and mix levels. I also used the melody step modulator to generate notes and trigger them using clock and XOR modules. I demonstrated how changing values in the step modulators can instantly modify the sound and trigger different sequences. Overall, it was a fun and nerdy way to create music in Bitwig Studio.

Creating Trumpet Sounds with Subtractive Synthesis in Bitwig Grid

Jul 24, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I demonstrate how to create a trumpet or saxophone sound in Bitwig's grid using subtractive synthesis. I avoid using samples, wavetables, or physical modeling. The sound is shaped using pinch and bend modules, as well as a phaser, before going through a filter and an amplitude modulation module. I also add filtered noise to simulate the air going through the horn. To simulate the characteristics of different instruments, I use fixed frequencies in an EQ module. An impulse response and delay are used to simulate room and add space to the sound. The main trick of the preset is shaping the phase signal with pinch and bend modules, which creates trumpet-like harmonics from a sine wave. I use Bitwig's expression modulator to map timbre, pitch bend, and pressure to add expression to the sound. I show how to do this in a separate polygrid. It took some time to find the right modulation amounts and timings, but the result is a cool and realistic trumpet sound. The preset is available for Patreon and YouTube subscribers, while others can try out the techniques I demonstrated.

Using Global Modulators in Bitwig for Interchannel Communication

Jun 09, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I explore using global modulators in Bitwig to send signals from one channel to another.

I then used it in a polygrid and triggered it with a dice module in free mode, adding notes with a step mode and quantizer. I also added modulation, filters, and delays to the sound. I then added a bass shot and a melody using a sample note. Finally, I randomized the melody and adjusted the balance and frequency using a cool force. I created a backdrop for an ambient tune and provided a link to the patch in the description.

How to do Vector Synthesis in Bitwig Grid with the Drawable Oscillator

May 03, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I show the viewers how to do vector synthesis in Bitwig's grid using the x,y coordinate pad and multiple instances of the drawable oscillator. I explain that vector synthesis involves blending between multiple oscillator shapes using a vector, which can be done with the x,y coordinate pad and multiple instances of the scroll. I also demonstrate how to use the blend modulator to fade between two inputs and give us one output waveform. I show how the bipolar mode can be used in the x,y pad for negative values and how to set up the modulation for the blend between the left and right side. I also suggest using a mod filter for subtractive shaping of the waveform and demonstrate how to set up the polyphony mode, so we can play chords. Additionally, I show how to use a vector 8 modulator, which is similar to the x,y pad, but with eight outputs. I explain how this can be used to blend between eight oscillator shapes, and how it provides more modulation for creating complex waveforms. Lastly, I give examples of how to use segments to find sweet spots for modulation and how to use wave tables for morphing the sound.

In this video, I downloaded the new version of Bitwig Studio 3.0 Beta 2 and explored the new features, including an output clipping parameter on the audio out of the grid device. Then, I discussed pulley rhythms and chords and how to turn chords into pulley rhythms and back. I demonstrated a small setup in the Grid with multiple oscillators playing chords and how to modulate their pitch using a value parameter and an I/O output modulator. I also implemented filter devices to distinguish the sounds and used the low-pitched LFOs as timing signals to trigger other oscillators in a more audible range. I showed how this technique can be expanded and used to create different rhythm structures, using different ratios and even playing on the keyboard. Overall, it's a fun and easy way to create rhythm structures with oscillators.
