Let's Build a… Synthesizer [BITWIG STUDIO 3] & Modular Concepts

Published on Jul 10, 2019 bitwig

"This tutorial constructs a basic synthesizer. Taking a classic approach of three mixed sound sources, we explore oscillator detuning, amplitude vs. filter envelopes, waveshaping, modulation, and even injecting audio samples. A good example of turning an idea into a new instrument in Bitwig Studio and The Grid.

0:30 - Just one oscillator to start
1:11 - Source 2: another oscillator and mixer
1:51 - Two sources with pitch & frequency offsets
3:09 - Adding a filter…
3:42 - …and a filter envelope
5:13 - Source 3: noise generator
5:41 - Separate noise envelope (local vs global control)
7:01 - Source 1 gets a waveshaper (local vs global control) and modulation
8:27 - Crossfading source 1 & 2
9:37 - Source 4 is… a Sampler!"

Modular Concepts: Basic Modulations [BITWIG STUDIO 3]

Published on Jul 10, 2019 bitwi

"This tutorial explores basic control signals, a core building block of patching. Starting from the default Poly Grid patch, we explore using envelopes and LFOs to manipulate pitch, both individually and together. With an understanding of how these generators work, you could apply them successfully to any type of parameter. As in any modular environment, modulations are what make any patch in The Grid dynamic and alive.

0:13 - Default patch at a glance
1:10 - Two basic modulation signals
2:27 - Using a pitch envelope
4:09 - "Attenuator test" when using notes
5:06 - Pitch LFO for trill
6:05 - Pitch LFO for vibrato (and glissando)
8:00 - Joining streams: vibrato that fades in

Modular Concepts is an ongoing tutorial series, with a new episode dropping every few weeks. Please use the comment section to share episode requests. Thanks for tuning in~"
