Embracing Action: Don't Overthink, Just Do

Aug 21, 2023 Tutorial
The video advises against overthinking and encourages taking action instead. It suggests that starting something and not worrying about the outcome is important. If I don't like what I've started, I can simply start fresh and try something new. The process of doing, practicing, and gaining new information can lead to improvement over time. Eventually, I may even realize that what I had initially thought was not so bad after all. The key takeaway is to take action and avoid overthinking.

Bitwig Studio: Unison and Modulation Intensity Control

Jul 05, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I share two tricks for Bitwig Studio that can be used in certain situations. The first trick is about creating unison in devices or synthesizers that don't have a built-in unison feature. By duplicating the input notes and assigning them to different MIDI channels with slightly different pitches, you can create the effect of unison. I demonstrate how to do this using the note grid and show how to adjust the pitch and panning for each duplicated note. By using this trick, you can achieve a chorus-like effect and stack multiple voices. The second trick is useful for performing with generative patches or creating evolving sounds over time in Bitwig Studio. I show how to modulate the intensity of modulation parameters using the intensity output of a macro. By selecting the modulation target in the synthesizer and clicking on the modulator handle, you can access a second amount slider that allows you to control the modulation amount. This can be helpful for adding dynamics and variation to your performances or arrangements. Overall, these tricks can expand your creative possibilities in Bitwig Studio and I hope you find them helpful.

Producing a Drum and Bass Track in Under One Hour

Jun 27, 2022 Tutorial
I created a drum and bass track from scratch in this video. I started by adding a snare to a sampler and then adding a kick drum and some hi-hats. Then I created a bass line by modulating the oscillator and adding a beat limiter and a step mod. After that I added a pad sound with some modulation and a delay. I then added some more drums and a crash. I then added a clap and used a filter to make the kick and bass stand out more in the intro. Finally, I added a micro pitched synth and faded out the pad for the outro.

In this video, I show how to create a Glitch-Hop track using a drum machine, bass lines, and multiple layers of instruments. I explain how to use a ramp mod and how to switch between layers with instrument selectors and step mods. I also explain how to use note repeats, quantizers, and effect zones. Finally, I show how to use a click filter to get the kick drum out of the drum machine.

Creating Drum and Bass: An Intro to Making Music

Apr 07, 2022 Tutorial
I am creating a drum and bass track and I am starting with the bass. I am using FM8 and mixing in two oscillators and adding a bit of noise and distortion. I'm then moving on to the drums, using a kick and snare, and then a shaker and ride. I'm using the transient shaper and hard clip to level out the sounds and then I'm creating a sidechain with the kick, so that it removes the bass when the kick plays. Lastly I'm creating a step sound with a Polysynth and adding in a crash sound.

Creating a Self-Running Grid Patch in Bitwig Studio

Apr 06, 2022 Tutorial
In this video, I showed how to build a self-running grid patch in Bitwig Studio. I started by selecting the grid and setting it to monophonic mode. I then connected a trigger to a phaser and an XP filter, and then used a face in to create notes. I added a sample and hold, a dice module, and a reverb to the patch. I also added a pitch signal to switch between an octave higher or lower. Finally, I used a global shuffle to change the pattern.

Creating a Hocket Machine with Audio Receivers in Bitwig Studio

Mar 27, 2020 Tutorial
In this video, I show how to create a hocket machine in Bitvic Studio using audio receivers and modulation. I use a track called "hocket" with a classic 8 modulator and multiple audio receivers that receive audio from different tracks. To prevent unwanted noise, I adjust the smoothing value when switching between audio sources. I also demonstrate how changing the playback speed, time base, phase modulation, and direction can create different grooves and patterns. I use unusual rhythms on all the tracks to create a more drastic effect. The limitation of this system is that it only has eight steps in the classic 8 modulator. Overall, this effect is easy to setup and can create some interesting outcomes in a track.

Creating Music with a Sound Design Approach in Bitwig Studio

Mar 18, 2020 Tutorial
In this video, I show viewers how to use a sound design approach to create music in Bitwig Studio. We start with a generative patch to create random patterns of notes and sounds. Then, we bounce this out as an audio file and use it as a sample source. We add a simple kick drum pattern and use an audio sidechain to modulate the amplitude of the music group. Next, we create a bassline using the Phase-4 device and add a Classic LFO and FX2 device for added effects. We bounce out the created sounds and create collages of these sounds to keep the track interesting. This approach doesn't focus on harmony or chords but rather heavily relies on the sound itself. You can create more sounds and variations to make the song even more interesting. Overall, this is a sound design-based approach to music creation in Bitwig Studio.

Creating a Deep House Track from Intimate Noise Free Samples

Jul 20, 2019 Tutorial
In this video, I take samples from the Intimate Noise page and try to create a track. I download the free sample pack and explore the different folders, including pads and drones, one shots, and sequences. I start by using the kick samples and creating a drum loop. Then, I incorporate some of the pad samples to add texture to the track. I manipulate the sounds using different effects and plugins, such as the Hornet plugin and the Sonable smart compressor. I also create a baseline using the notes provided by the pad sample. I continue to build the track by adding more elements, including chords, FX sounds, and melodies. I use a pitch shifter and random modulators to add character and variation to the sounds. I group the different elements together and apply sidechain compression using the kick drum to create a pumping effect. Finally, I do a quick mastering using the Allzone Elements tool to ensure the track reaches the desired loudness. Overall, the goal is to create a deep house track using the samples from the Intimate Noise sample pack.

Recreating the Stranger Things Theme in Bitwig Studio: Prolavity Things

Jul 13, 2019 Tutorial
In this video, I recreated the Stranger Things theme using Bitwig Studio. I also collaborated with a friend to recreate the intro, resulting in Prolavity Things'. All the tracks in the project were created using Bitwig only, including an E-kick, polyscent, and a sampler with my voice. I also showcased the Bitwig 3.0 tape machine preset that I made for the master track. The project does not use any dynamic processors, only a peak limiter at the end. I recorded my voice for some portions of the track. I provided the project download link in the description. Additionally, I mentioned the Bitwig Outrun Challenge for creating and sharing Retro Wave or Synthwave presets. The challenge is for fun and there are no prizes involved. Thanks for watching and see you in the next video.
