Envelope Followers on Drums in Bitwig

Feb 21, 2024 Tutorial
In this video, I explore using envelope followers in Bitwig Studio to add dynamic modulation to a bass sound based on the amplitude of drums. I demonstrate various techniques such as using audio side chain modulators, working with audio rate modulators, and utilizing the FX grid for more precise control. These methods allow for creative sound design and can bring life and movement to otherwise static loops.

Crazy Bitwig EQ Modulations

Feb 12, 2024 Tutorial
In this video, I demonstrate creative ideas for using the EQ inside Bitwig Studio. By utilizing the FX grid and voice stacking, I show how to apply polyphonic modulations to the EQ Plus. This technique allows for unique waveforms, modulation offsets, and the ability to sequence and morph between EQ settings.

Modulation above One in Bitwig Studio

Jan 31, 2024 Tutorial
In this video, I discuss modulation amounts and signals in Bitwig Studio. I explain how modulation typically operates between zero and plus or minus one, but you can exceed this range using certain modulators. I also demonstrate how adjusting a constant value can define the endpoint of modulation without needing to enter the modulation mode.

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.

Creating Micro Arrangements with Bitwig Studio's Global Modulators

Apr 27, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I recap my previous videos on replacing VST plugins and efficient clip launcher workflows. I also share my tips on using the clip launcher and global modulators for micro-arrangement. By extending the life cycle of clips with operators and modulators, I demonstrate how to create interesting arrangements without having to draw everything in the arranger. I recommend creating a template with pre-set global modulators for easy use in future projects. The core idea is to make more out of one bar loops and to use modulation to do the heavy lifting in arrangement.

Creating an Experimental Reverb from Alpas Stages

Dec 05, 2020 Tutorial
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.

Creating Rhythms with Oscillators in Bitwig Studio 3.0 Beta 2

May 17, 2019 Tutorial
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.
