In my latest video, I discuss SynPlant 2, a groundbreaking synthesizer with the new GenoPatch feature that uses machine learning to create FM patches from samples. This feature allows users to generate multiple FM patches from a single sample, with options to adjust tuning, volume, and grow out different sound variations. I believe this is a game-changing innovation in the world of synthesizers and hope to see other synths incorporate similar features in the future.

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.
