In this video, I'm using a drum machine to create a beat. I'm using four hi-hats and a clap, and then I'm experimenting with quantizing and layering different sounds in order to create a more natural and chilled out beat. I'm also using a synthesizer to create a kick drum and I'm adjusting the levels and the speed to create the exact sound I'm looking for.
Feb 23, 2021 Tutorial
I downloaded a zip file with the necessary files, and copied them into my VST directory. I then opened the VCV Bridge plug-in on my instrument track in Bitwig Studio and loaded up VCV Rack. I switched on the METE-CV module to bridge, and selected the device port 1. On the audio 8 device, I switched to bridge and port 1. This allowed me to have a MIDI in from Bitwig and audio out to Bitwig. I could then use my MIDI keyboard to play VCV Rack and have some fun.

In this video, I demonstrate how to create a super simple patch for Euclidean rhythms in the grid. I show how it looks like in Hatefish, and then explain how to implement it in the grid. I explain the three most important parameters (steps, beats and shift) and demonstrate how they can be used to create interesting rhythms. I also show how to use macros to control the parameters and how to use the Grid Node Out plug-in to generate notes. Finally, I provide a preset to make it easier to use the patch.
Jul 27, 2021 Tutorial
In this video, I discussed my recent journey with hardware synthesizers and how I have been integrating them into my setup. I discussed the process of setting up my mixing desk, an ADA 8200 extension port, and an ID14 MK2 sound card in order to record multiple hardware synthesizers at once. I also discussed the shortcomings of hardware synthesizers and how I have to record every parameter movement in order to keep the same sound. Finally, I mentioned my plans for creating special content for my Patreon gold tier members and potentially creating a tier for German videos.

In this video, I show how to send signals from one channel to another to change parameters or modulations. I demonstrate this with a bit Rig tutorial, showing how to use a DC offset device to send signals from one channel to another. I also explain how to use a MIDI CC device and Note Receiver to send signals to multiple sub channels. I then demonstrate how to mix audio and MIDI information on the same channel, and how to generate notes on an audio channel with a Replacer. Lastly, I demonstrate how to use a Poly-Grid to send MIDI CC signals to another track.
Oct 26, 2021 Tutorial
In this video, I produce a melodic techno or melodic house tune inside Bitwig Studio. I start from zero with no idea what to do and end up with a track that is 7 minutes long. I use a variety of techniques such as automation, modulation, sound design, mixing, arranging, and keeping the sequence interesting. I show how to create a root drone, how to use an instrument, how to apply audio effects, and how to use a step modulator. I also demonstrate how to use an LFO, an EQ, and a reverb device.
Jan 10, 2022 Tutorial
In this video, I showed viewers how to use the XO sampler to quickly and easily create sample packs, kick drums and drum loops. I demonstrated how to layer sounds, use FX2 and frequency shifters, adjust the loudness and reverb, and use the sample combiner to create different loops. I also shared tips on how to analyze kick drums and make sure the bottom part stays the same while the top part changes. Finally, I mentioned that you can use a hard clipper to check if the samples are aligned and gave advice on how to optimize the drums.
Jan 19, 2022 Tutorial
In this video, I showed how to create various effects, such as phasers, flangers, chorus, low pass and high pass filters, reverbs, and pitch effects, in the Bitwig Grid. I demonstrated how to use FX Grids and Chain Devices, as well as how to manipulate the delay time of a signal with an LFO and the Time Shift Device. I also showed how to create a multi-tap delay with the Long Delay and a Multi-Lay, as well as how to use the gates module to record and playback audio. Finally, I discussed the use of an AD envelope to reduce clicks in the signal.
Jun 14, 2022 Tutorial
In this video, I shared how I use the e-kick in Bitwig Studio to create nice sounding kick drums. I showed how I use the pitch mod and decay setting to shape the sound, and how I use the FX2 to split the frequencies in the low and high end. I also explained how I use the EQ2 to cut the frequencies and how I use the distortion, frequency shifter and ADSR to bring out the best parts of the kick drum. Finally, I shared how I use the desk tone generator and a sampler to add flavor to the kick drum.
Jun 20, 2022 Tutorial
In this video, I discussed the E-SNARE device in Bitwig Studio. I showed how to blend between the two oscillators, mix the noise with the envelope, and shape the sound with filters and the output section. I explained how to create snare sounds with the device, such as deep snares, light snares, and rim shots. I also showed how to add room to the sound with the convolution device and how to layer the snare with a sample using the ADSR. Finally, I demonstrated how to use distortion, EQ, and saturation to shape the snare sound and how to use a peak limiter and Valhalla Supermassive to add texture.

In this video, I show how to create a poly grid to generate a tutorial for the week. I demonstrate how to use a length module and a note to get a long sustain phase with a short trigger phase that is perfect for pads. I also show how to use a Wavetable to create a melody and then layer it with random modulation, an octaver, and an external VST effect. Finally, I add a bass line and some drums to finish the patch.
Feb 13, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I showed a simple way of creating a lo-fi effect in Bitwig Studio with the FX Grid. I demonstrated how to use lag, noise, distortion, and modulation to create an interesting effect. I also showed how to add different filters and blend in noise to create a unique sound. Finally, I encouraged viewers to download the patch and have fun exploring and tweaking the settings.
Feb 17, 2023 Tutorial
I showed how to create a beat repeater with the FX grid by splitting the drum loop into four recorders and sequencing them. I explained how to use the phase input to evenly step through the split device, and how to use the phase signal to rearrange the playback order. I also showed how to use the mirror output to create a faster playback with finer grains. Finally, I demonstrated how to use a step sequence to blend in the repeater.
Feb 22, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I'm talking about how automation can be used to progress your track, how to use it as an arrangement tool, and why it's the most important thing you have in your tool belt. I explain how I use automation to draw in value changes over time and introduce a storyline to my arrangement. I also discuss how I use modulation to give my sound an organic feel and how to use automation to make more drastic changes to progress my track. Finally, I demonstrate how I use automation to introduce a groove and rhythm to the listener and give them a sense of when something is happening in the track.
Feb 24, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I show viewers a technique for creating a kick drum and bass sound out of the same oscillator in order to avoid phase issues. I explain how to use an envelope, add math module, noise, attenuate, and filter to achieve this sound. I also provide tips for tweaking the sound to fit a certain genre.
Feb 28, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I explain how to use DP Meter 5 to measure loudness levels and gain staging. I also explain the different modes, such as RMS mode, EVO mode, and dial mode. I show how to use the RMS integrated value, RMS momentary, RMS momentary max, true peak max, crest factor, and loudness range. I also explain how to use the gain setting, match button, and reference level. Lastly, I explain why you should use EVO instead of RMS, and how frequencies are factored into the numbers.
Mar 07, 2023 Tutorial
In this video, I explain why there is no sine wave in a classical subtractive synthesizer. This is because sine wave has no overtones and therefore makes no sense in terms of subtractive synthesis. I explain how the filter section can be used to target and amplify the fundamental frequency as well as other partials in the harmonic series. I also provide an overview of other synthesis methods such as additive synthesis, Wavetable synthesis, FM synthesis, phase distortion, vector synthesis, granular synthesis, and physical modeling. In each of these methods, sine waves make more sense. Finally, I explain why a saw and pulse waveforms are used in polysynth - because they give different harmonic overtones.
