NAMM 2024 - Bitwig GmbH - Bitwig Studio Updates

video upload by sonicstate

"Bitwig Studio has unveiled its latest update, Bitwig Studio 5.1, at NAMM 2024. The update focuses on sound design tools and introduces 10 new characters to enhance users' creative processes. Fredrik introduced one of the key highlights: the modular sound design environment, Grid, which now includes three new character filters—Fizz, Rasp, and Ripple. These filters have undergone extensive development and offer a wide range of sonic possibilities. Additionally, Bitwig Studio 5.1 introduces the Byte oscillator, a digital dual oscillator with various sync and XFM options.

The update also includes six new wave shapers and two new audio effects devices: Filter Plus and Sweep. Filter Plus is a simplified version of Grid, providing easy access to filters and wave shapers in an audio effects environment. Sweep, on the other hand, offers more routing and modulation possibilities with its two filter slots and wave shaper. Bitwig Studio 5.1 also brings improvements to audio editing, such as audio quantizing, making it easier to align audio clips to the grid. GUI updates have been implemented, particularly in the mixer mode, allowing tracks to be displayed in a more customizable manner.

Bitwig Studio Essentials Price: 99 USD/Euros
Bitwig Studio Producer Price: 199 USD/Euros
Bitwig Studio Price: 399 USD/Euros"

Kyma - Bitwig: Making Wobbles and Beats

video upload by Frequency Manipulator

"Starting with my new Kyma sound, 'One Wave', it takes one wavetable, which drives the Oscillator shape, Amplitude Envelope Shape, Filter LFO Shape, and is also waveshaping the resonance loop. The results are varied. Despite the random shapes of the waves, all the modulation stretches to tempo.
Drop a comment if you want the sound."

Live Quadraphonic Mixing in Bitwig Studio

video upload by nbor

"Download the Grid device here!

Recently, I've been lucky to perform live sets in Quadraphonic audio. I developed some tools in Bitwig Studio to create animated soundscapes for four speakers. Using modulators and the FX Grid, I can create a huge variety of spatial audio patterns. However, Bitwig isn't really designed for this, so there's a few things you need to do to work around its stereo "bias." Despite the few hacks, it works really well, and sounds amazing. This video gives an overview of how to make everything work."

Thanks Radio

video upload by nbor

"Precipitous placement of a glass of pinot notwithstanding, I've been working with loopers and the @buchlausa Easel command. After struggling with some less desirable results, I listened to the magic of KFJC radio and it gave me some new direction. Drum sounds created on the Buchla, sampled into the @bitwig drum machine, sequenced with the Hawtin script for the Fire. I'm controlling four instances of @AudioDamageInc Enso with a Livid Minim (off screen)."

Thin Ice

video upload by nbor

"Affected by the stormy end of year, I made this track late on a cold night. 'Thin Ice' is a simple composition with complex sounds. The sounds of breaking ice are played with MPE in @AudioDamageInc Quanta 2 granular synth. @ArturiaOfficial SEM V2 synth provides a dark background, played on the LEM218. A simple generative melody from Bitwig haunts the @buchlausa Easel Command. All treated with a liberal dose of effects. Really, though, you should hear this in quad!"

SUPERBOOTH 2022 Bitwig 4.3

video upload by sonicstate

"Dave Linnenbank takes Nick through some of the exciting new updates for Bitwig 4.3.

Convolution, can take any sound anywhere — even places that don't exist. All convolutions imprint your sound with an “impulse,” and ours comes ready-made with 270 of them, ranging from 12th-century cathedrals and legendary studio effects to more abstract “environments.” Using the impulse of a room or hall creates a realistic reverb, but Bitwig's Convolution and content offers so much more.

You can easily adjust color and tone, or draw your own envelope to reshape the impulse itself. Plus, since we support “true stereo” (four-channel) files as well as loading any audio as an impulse, you can drag and drop anything onto Convolution and see what impossible space you land in.

With the help of Bitwig Impulse Responses, the companion package for our Convolution device, your sounds are going places. There are 270 options, so you can take your sounds to locations around the world with reverbs professionally recorded in ancient train stations, French cathedrals, monk meditation halls and private attics. You could also use Convolution and these Impulse Responses to imbue your tracks with the tones of iconic hardware studio gear like vintage spring reverbs, pedals and digital FX units, or for more experimental purposes.

Delay+ is Bitwig's latest boutique audio effect. By balancing familiar controls along with a few thoughtful new ones, Delay+ can either add a little character or fully transform your sound as it ping-pongs along.

Set the delay in seconds or beats, then nudge each channel a few milliseconds for instant stereo. Pick from five Blur options to go from a lightly animated feedback to a full, blown-out reverb. A Ducking control keeps things under control by quieting your delay cloud when strong signals arrive.

Bitwig's nested structure allows you to drop our Pitch Shifter, or Flanger+, or any VST plug-in into the feedback loop. So whether you just need a little slapback or a colorful wash of sound, Delay+ has you covered.

Polymer and The Grid use the same modules, so when something new comes along, everybody wins. For Bitwig 4.3, some analog-inspired goodies have arrived.

Two modules are new. Union is an oscillator that plays it straight, blending three waveshapes into one pleasant, drifting output. And for filtering, Low-pass MG honors Mister Moog by imitating both his classic filter and mix buss.

But plenty of other features have also arrived. Low-pass SK filter is now Sallen-Key, with 16 modes on tap. Our Comb filter gained a Damping control for a touch of finesse. ADSR and two other envelopes now have added modes for Digital precision, or Analog simplicity and feel. Plus all filters get a Q Limit to rein in their resonance, and all oscillators have more phase mod range for more brittle, digital sounds. So whether starting a sound in Polymer or growing a world in The Grid, new sounds are at hand.

As always, a few more new features came along for the ride. For example, FX tracks now have sends of their own. And yes, direct feedback routings are available — and clearly labeled (Achtung!). And the ADSR module gets a lot of use, so why not add a “bias” out port for a bipolar signal that centers around sustain? Good for pitch or anything that might want a little drift.

Whether it is recording settings, lyrics, or performance notes, comments can be freely added to tracks, layers, Arranger cue markers, and Launcher scenes — just start writing in your language. And by switching our Linux build over to Flatpak and supporting PipeWire, many distros will have a smoother experience with Bitwig, including Ubuntu users. And maybe even Steam Decks?

Bitwig Studio 4.3 is now in beta and can be tested by anyone with a Bitwig Studio license and an active Upgrade Plan. You'll find the installers in your user profile here. We expect to release 4.3 in Q2 this year. As always, this is a free update for all license holders with an active Upgrade Plan."

"I've been slowing making a sampler instrument using a chromatically sampled acoustic guitar, activated with an ebow. After some major editing work, I loaded the notes into a sampler and did a bit of sweetening. I use MPE in the Bitwig sampler to tame the sounds and mix them in stereo. Sweetened with a bit of Newfangled Elevate."
