Berlin Explorer - Exploring the Sounds of Berlin with SNM Modular Presets

Oct 29, 2020 Tutorial
In this video, I showcase my three new presets - Berlin City, Berlin Verb and Berlin Tape - that I created for my five bug subscribers on YouTube and Patreon. I sampled noises from the streets of Berlin to analyze certain things, and I used a special method to create random multiple values in the grid with chapicef modules. I also mapped some MPE sensors to some knobs so you can use your MPE devices for this preset. With the remote controls and the snob, you can change the noise texture, the timing, the envelope, the stereo width, the pitch drift and the reverb. Berlin Tape is a tape emulation that you can bring in a lot of dirt and change the speed of the noise sample. I hope this video was helpful and I look forward to hearing your feedback.

After this introduction, there will be a preview of all the presets so viewers can decide if they want to subscribe or not. If viewers have any questions, they can ask me in the comments or join my discord. Thanks for watching and have fun playing around with the sounds.

How to Synchronize Loop Length with Song Tempo in Bitwig Studio

Apr 27, 2021 Tutorial
In this video, I demonstrated an easy workflow to define the loop length inside a sample in Bitwig Studio. This can be helpful when you want to synchronize the loop length with your song tempo. I showed how to copy the length of a region to the loop length, as well as how to subdivide the loop length using the quantizer. Finally, I mentioned that it is important to change the loop length on the beat grid in order to avoid any timing issues.

Combining Sub-Patterns for Generative Music in Bitwig

May 04, 2021 Tutorial
In this video, I show how I combine sub-patterns to create a larger generative pattern. I demonstrate how to use the probability module in Bitwig Studio, and how to combine different sequences in a meaningful way. I also show how to use a sample and hold module, a transport playing module, and a compare function to create a trigger signal to reset the chance module. This technique can be used to create generative drum patterns, and it is a great way to exclude what you don't want and focus on what you do want in your track.

Exploring the Bitwig Modulation System with Harmonic Filtering

May 13, 2021 Tutorial
In this video, I experimented with Bitwig's modulation system and the HZF filter to create interesting sounds. I used the filter to analyze the input signal and amplify or suppress certain harmonics to get the desired sound. I also experimented with adding white noise and creating drone sounds by setting the filter to freeze and hold. I demonstrated how this could be used on a piano, vocals, and other instruments, and how presets can be saved with the current sound settings.

Creating Looping Presets with Little Looper in Bitwig

Sep 27, 2021 Tutorial
In this video, I created two new presets for my Patreons called Little Looper Synced and Little Looper raw. I explained how they work and what you can do with them. Syncd is quantized to the project tempo, while Raw lets you start and stop recording anytime. I showed how you can use them with a synth line and how you can customize the settings, such as loop length, pan, start offset, and restart. I also showed how you can use them with a radio and for sound design, and how you can replace the steps with a random or dice module. I hope this video was helpful, so if you're interested, don't forget to subscribe to my Patreon or YouTube Membership to download these presets and let me know what you think in the comments.

Comparing Sample Managers: XO, Atlas, Sononym and Cosmos

Feb 18, 2022 Tutorial
In this video, I shared my thoughts on the new sample manager Cosmos by Waves, comparing it to my other sample managers like XO, Atlas, and Sononym. I found that Cosmos offers a lot of additional attributes for samples, which makes it easier to filter down to what you need. I also liked the Galaxy/Cosmos space where you can drag samples directly out. I found Sononym to be more suited for research, as it has a similarity search feature which takes a lot of attributes into consideration. I found Atlas to have better integration of its space, and XO to have the advantage of being able to export multiple samples simultaneously. In conclusion, I found all the sample managers to have different benefits and I use them all for different tasks.

Using Loops From Others: Is It Cheating or Inspiration?
