Audio Normalizer for Bitwig

Jun 12, 2024 Tutorial
In this video, I demonstrate a workaround in Bitwig Studio 5.2 to achieve volume normalization for instrument tracks and live audio. By misusing the wet gain learn feature on a chain device and using a tool device to measure the input volume, I create a preset that matches the output volume to a desired reference value. This allows for easy normalization without manual adjustments and can be applied to multiple tracks for consistency.

Auto Leveler, Multi-Band Compressor, and Frequency Split in Bitwig

Feb 13, 2024 Tutorial
In this video, I cover three different topics related to EQ techniques. The first is an auto leveler method using bandpass filters and an amplifier to maintain a consistent volume. The second is a multi-band EQ compressor, created by combining an EQ with a grid compressor, allowing for individual frequency control. Lastly, I demonstrate the use of the Loud Split device to selectively affect different frequency ranges in a sound, helpful for removing noise or enhancing specific elements.

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.

I will post codes in the comments, YouTube community page, Discord server, and Patreon page. Lastly, I thank all my followers and supporters for allowing me to do what I love.

Creating Cosmic Drift - Generative-2023-04-03 Bitwig Grid Preset

Apr 03, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I demonstrate how to create a generative music patch in Bitwig using the Polygrid module. I start by generating a melody using a step module and modulating the pitch with the dice module. I also use a quantizer to ensure the melody is played in a specific scale. To create percussion, I use a noise module and trigger it with a step module as well, using a filter and distortion to shape the sound. I then combine the melody and percussion patches together and also add a bassline using a filter and octaver. Finally, I show how to export the MIDI data from the patch and use it in another plugin like Polycent. The patch is available for download in the video description.

Exploring Modular Synthesis with Bitwig Studio

Jan 20, 2021 Tutorial
I tried out the sign mod in Bitwig, which is a modular approach to making music. It is possible to use the grid for traditional music production, but the grid is where most of the modular magic happens. I experimented with the sign mod to create a melody, and I used the modulation capabilities to add some variations. I also experimented with using a wave table to shape the sound, as well as using an AD loop and random modulators.

Creating natural melody lines with complex LFO waveforms in modular synthesis

Feb 27, 2020 Tutorial
In this video, I share a patch that uses multiple LFO modules to create a more natural melody line. I blend different LFOs together to create a complex waveform for the pitch information, which is then narrowed down to a pitch scale and goes into a sample and hold module. The rhythm is also generated randomly using an LFO and the gates module. The whole patch is controlled by an overall volume LFO, but the only downside is that it's completely quiet after 32 bars. However, this can be easily fixed by offsetting the LFO in the second patch. Overall, this patch provides a more procedural approach to generating notes and rhythm, and experimentation is limitless.

Exploring the Evolving Paths preset in Bitwig Studio

Feb 23, 2020 Tutorial
In this video, I introduce the Evolving Paths preset and demonstrate how it works in Bitwig Studio.

I explain how to use the mod wheel to change the position in the sample and how to select different samples for each of the boxes. The preset is available for purchase on Gumroad or for free for supporters on my Patreon page. Overall, it's a fun and affordable tool to experiment with and create unique sounds.

Creating Tracks with Pre-Made Sounds and Presets in Bitwig Studio

Aug 12, 2019 Tutorial
In this video, I wanted to share my approach to creating music in Bitwig.
