Modular Concepts: Musical Maths [BITWIG STUDIO 3]

Published on Sep 11, 2019 bitwig

"While math is everywhere in sound synthesis, it doesn't always ask for attention. This tutorial looks at three examples: making a patch velocity-sensitive, seeing how low-pass filters relate to amplitude, and using comparators to make a looping envelope. By lifting the veil on a few simple ideas, take The Grid (and any modular environment) to a new level.

NOTE: Project file with snapshots and bonus content available here -

0:08 - Math: it's all around us
1:10 - Logical functions too
2:05 - Task 1: Velocity as an amplitude control
3:24 - Level Scaler for range
4:03 - Using decibels is nicer
4:32 - Task 2: What is a low-pass filter?
5:45 - LPF makes things slow…
6:22 - …now we can slow other signals
7:20 - Lag is a filter set in time
7:55 - Task 3: building a looping envelope
8:43 - Talk thru how this should work
9:13 - When the envelope reaches zero…
9:48 - …AND the note is still held, retriever
10:39 - Details, like routing feedback…
11:10 - …merge the triggers with OR…
11:57 - …and short logic signals help OR work
12:50 - It loops! Go crazy!"
