In this video, I share how I created visually pleasing patterns in Bitwig Studio's piano roll. By using note grids, modules, and pitch manipulation, I was able to create interesting polyrhythms and polymeters. I also experimented with randomizing frequencies and converting them into notes, allowing for unique sounds in the piano roll.

In the last couple of videos, I discussed pulley rhythms and pulley meters in the Bitwig grid. Today, I want to take a look at how these concepts apply to the Arranger window and Clip Launcher, and share a tip on combining multiple instrument tracks for one synthesizer. By utilizing polyrhythms and polymeters, you can create interesting and complex patterns by varying the subdivisions and clip lengths. This technique can be enhanced further by grouping multiple clips and having them played by a single synthesizer on a group track.

In this video, I demonstrate different methods of creating easy polymeters in Bitwig Studio. I show how to use a node grid with a monophonic mode, a gates module, and a transport module to generate nodes. I also discuss a different setup using a counter and a trigger module, as well as the use of a clock quantizer for better precision.

In this video, I explain the difference between Polyrhythms and Polymeters. Polyrhythms involve subdividing a one-bar grid into equally spaced steps using triggers, while in Polymeters, the subdivisions stay the same but the length of the bar changes. To achieve Polymeters, I demonstrate using a reset module to reset the face signal at a certain point in time.
