Thavius Beck is an electronic musician/producer/programmer as well as an electronic music educator who has worked with various artists ranging from Nine Inch Nails to Saul Williams to singer/songwriter Skylar Grey.
First launched in 2014, Bitwig Studio has grown into a very mature DAW. Version 4 introduces new powerful features that can help you reach new creative heights... as long as you know how to use them! This course, created by the amazing and always entertaining Thavius Beck, is designed to show exactly how to make the most out of these features in a musical context. Join him in this course now, and learn some advanced Bitwig production workflows...
First, you learn about the powerful new Operators. Similar to features available on Elektron hardware, Operators are very cool and a lot of fun! Thavius shows you how you can use them to bring to life repetitive loops. The Operators include four modes (Chance, Repeats, Occurrence and Recurrence) that can completely transform a basic idea into something great and complex. Couple that with the Fill Mode, and you'll see why the best loops actually don't loop!
Next, you learn to add randomness and controlled-chaos to your music using the Spread feature by modulating various synth parameters. The course also cover Comping, another great new features introduced in Bitwig Studio 4. The traditional use of comping would be to combine the best parts of many takes to create a perfect one, but Thavius goes further than that and reveals how to use it to generate interesting textures and unique sonic material. You also learn how to import data from your FL Studio and Ableton Live projects, and more...
It's time to get creative! Join Certified Trainer Thavius Beck in this creative journey, and discover new Bitwig techniques and workflows.
As a follow-up to the beginner's course, this one takes a look at the added features in the Bitwig update. Very useful, and to be honest I didn't even know where to find these, so it was an eye-opener for me. Looking forward to the next one, since at the time I am writing this the Bitwig beta 5 is already rolled out which I am testing myself, so looking forward to see what Thavius is coming up with next.
