I love the clock quantizer in Bitwig Studio, as it allows me to quantize signals to a steady trigger so that I can create interesting rhythms. I demonstrated how it can be used to delay manual triggers, to quantize two triggers, to create vinyl crackle, and to extract grooves from drum loops. I highly recommend using the clock quantizer to create interesting rhythms in your music.

In this video, I show how to get repeating patterns out of the sample and hold LFO in Bitwig Studio. I explain that when you input a signal above one, you can access static values that repeat. I demonstrate how to patch this up using a trigger, quantizer, transpose, sample and hold, clock, oscillator, and attenuate. I also show a quicker approach using a volume knob and bias module. Finally, I thank X iso for giving me the hint about this trick.

In this video, I showed how to use the Note Grid in Bitwig to make sure that multiple small notes close together are recognized as one note. I demonstrated the problem of re-triggering the sampler when a clip is looped, and then showed how the Note Grid can be used to solve this. I also showed how the Note Grid can be used to continuously hold the gate signal even when the pitch of the sample is changed.

In this video, I show how to use the Circle of Fifths in Bitwig Studio's Note Grid to create interesting and complex chord progressions. I demonstrate how to set up the Note Grid, activate trigger buttons to send out the chords, and adjust the settings such as adding a seventh or ninth to get different chord variations. I also show how to record the chord progressions in an instrument track. Finally, I explain why this device is useful for those who don't know how to play the piano and how it can be used to jam with a rhythm to create interesting chord progressions.

In this video, I showed a trick for synchronizing a drum loop and using it as a groove source for drum tracks. I demonstrated how to use the Note Grid, Clock Quantizer, Sidechain, Envelope Follower, Amplifier, and Gate Length to extract the groove from a drum loop and use it to control a drum sampler. This can be a helpful trick when you want to convert drum loops to other drum loops or use a different drum loop as a guide for your groove.

In this video, I show how to create non-diatonic chord progressions that rotate around the circle of fifths with the help of the note grid in Bitwig Studio. I also explain how to follow this workflow to create bass lines and melody lines. I demonstrate how to use the pitch signal and multiply it with seven to get nice patterns. I also explain how to use the note wrap tool to keep the notes within a certain octave range. Finally, I demonstrate how to use a polysend and note quantizer to make sure the notes fit the chords.
Mar 10, 2022 Tutorial
In this video, I explain how I built my note wrapping tool and why it is so useful. I use the wrap module by Bitwig to wrap values to the phase range. I then visualize this using an oscilloscope, showing that different values in the oscilloscope mean different notes. I then explain how to rescale the range so that when higher notes are input, they are wrapped within the octave range of C3 to C4. I finish by showing how multiplication and division can be used to offset the axis of the wrap module.

I'm here to show you how to use the new Note Grid and NoteFX tools in Bitwig Studio 4.2 to create a melody maker. I demonstrate how to set up a repeater, step mod, sample and hold, and a quantizer to create a random melody generator. I also show you a chord generator I created called the Circle of Fifths, and how to use it with the pitch quantize to create melodies that stay in scale. I provide a preset in the description below so you can follow along and have some fun creating your own melodies.

In this video, I showed how to create generative music in Bitwig Studio without using the grid. I showed how to use the Grid Node Out preset, which can be used to get node information out of the grid into the Bitwig world. I also showed how to use a Polymer synth and a small delay, as well as how to use the steps mode, the LFO, and the Key Filter to modulate the pitch and gate. Finally, I showed how to use a Node Clip and an ABit Creator to generate random nodes.

In this video, I showed some ways to create court versions with the NoteFX devices of Bitwig Studio. I demonstrated how to use the diatonic transpose to bring chords to a certain scale, and how to use the octave wrapper to move notes within an octave range. I also showed how to use the multi note to create chords with different amounts of modulation and how to mix major and minor chords together. Finally, I showed how to use a macro knob to create inversions with one knob.

In this video, I share some tips and tricks for using the diatronic transposer in Bitwig Studio to create jazzy chord progressions. I show how to use a multi note device in combination with a key filter and transposer to create a chord brush. I also demonstrate how to use a pitch 12 to modulate multi notes between major and minor chords. Lastly, I show how to create chord gradients by stacking notes in seven semitone steps.

In this video, I shared some tips on how to use the new Bitwig 4.1 FX Note-FX devices. I showed how to use the note-repeater device to create an interesting sound, how to use the arpeggiator to get different rhythms and timing settings, how to use the ricochet device to modulate panning and tremolo, and how to use the multi note device to get different triplet rhythms using velocity.
Nov 05, 2021 Tutorial
In this video, I explored the new Bitwig Studio 4.1 Note-FX devices, including Ripple, Ricochet, Quantize, Randomize, Band, Note Repeat, and Sampler Release. I showed how to use them to create interesting rhythms, textures and soundscapes, as well as to constrain notes to a specific scale. I demonstrated how to use the devices to transform simple note clips into complex and expressive rhythms and melodies.

I created a new preset called "Groove Machine" which adds a groove to note clips. The main feature of this preset is the step sequencer, which allows you to dial in delays of up to 90 milliseconds to push and pull notes. Additionally, you can dial in randomization and different step patterns to create unique grooves. I showed how to use it on a drum loop and a bass line to demonstrate how it works. You can download this preset and experiment with it to create your own unique grooves.

In this video, I demonstrate how to implement a threshold using the audio grid in Bitwig Studio. I use a random drum loop as an example and show how to analyze the signal using a follower and a constant. I then subtract the constant from the follower to get the threshold line, which is then used to trigger a gate signal. I finish by showing how to adjust the threshold value and make sure the audio is in mono.

In this video, I explain my favorite init settings for the EQ Plus in Bitwig Studio 3.2. I start with a completely empty project and add a fully grid, saw wave, ADSR, and an audio art. With the EQ Plus, I remove all the init settings to start fresh. I explain the harmonic series, which produces harmonic overtones when using a saw wave. To set up bands for these harmonics, I add a band for the fundamental frequency of C3. I save the EQ Plus as an init preset to remember that changing the gain for the first band changes the fundamental frequency. I add bands for the different harmonics and use the key track to keep track of the pitch or notes played. The key track also keeps track of any pitch band girfs applied. I saved this as an init preset for pitch tracking or note tracking, which works well for monophonic sounds such as bass sounds. I also demonstrate how the EQ Plus follows pitch tracking custom pitch tracking and works alongside the kick drum. Overall, this is a useful trick in a toolbox to apply to EQs and other instruments.
