In this video, I explain why Sine-Oscillators can give back crackles when triggered with an AD, and I share a trick to solve this issue. When using a short attack time and triggering the Sine-Oscillator, we start at minus one, which causes a crackle. To solve this, we can ease out the attack time, or we can move the cycle to a zero crossing by using a constant and the phase knob. However, a long decay time can still cause crackles when re-triggering the oscillator. To solve this, we can use a comparison with the AD output and a gate input to wait until the decay phase is finished before re-triggering the oscillator. Additionally, I suggest starting at zero value to prevent crackles and explain how this applies to other sounds. Overall, following these tips can help solve crackle issues in Sine-Oscillators.

In this video, I talk about various topics and share some tips and tricks. First up, I discuss the release of Bitwig Studio 4.4.9, which comes with bug fixes and improvements. Next, I share my thoughts on WavTool, a DAW in the browser that has some interesting features, such as a chatbot that can create MIDI clips with a melody. I also mention the possibility of having a chatbot in Bitwig Studio and an interface designer to create simplified interfaces for the grid. In the next section, I discuss using the phase four as an additive synthesizer to create lush pads. I also show how to use a step modulator to add rhythms to the pads. In the final section, I talk about a plugin called Gain Aim, which can be used as a leveler, compressor, and normalizer. I also mention Microtonic, a drum machine plugin.

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 share some additional tips and tricks for using Bitwig Studio. I first show how to use the browser tab to import recent projects or specific groups within a project. Next, I demonstrate how to use the key track to modulate the frequency of an EQ or filter to correspond with MIDI inputs. I explain how to bounce audio with or without effects included and why I prefer using the bounce option over bounce in place. Finally, I share how to deactivate tracks for faster loading time and how to hide source material tracks. Overall, these tips can improve your workflow in Bitwig Studio.
