The new Modulators in Bitwig Studio 2 make it one of the most powerful and flexible DAWs anywhere. In this exclusive 26-tutorial course, Bitwig Certified Trainer Thavius Beck gives a detailed tour of these amazing new devices!
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.
Imagine being able to automatically control any parameters of any devices, with an unlimited number of modulators ... Well, now you can with Bitwig Studio 2! Instead of being stuck with the predefined LFOs and envelopes built into a synth or effect, Bitwig allows you to add automated movement to any parameters using any number of modulators. It's like having an all-you-can-eat modulation buffet built right into your DAW! And in this 2-hour + course, Bitwig Certified Trainer Thavius Beck takes you through all 25 new modulator devices introduced in Bitwig Studio 2.
Thavius starts with a detailed look at the Expression and Keytrack modulator devices. Using the Polysynth, he shows how to bring a simple sound alive by modulating its parameters with velocity, timbre, pressure, and more. He continues by explaining everything about envelopes, from the regular ADSR to the more intricate Envelope Follower.
After learning about all the different types of LFOs available, you discover how to add chaos in your music with the Random, Vector, Button, and Math modulator devices. And with Bitwig Studio 2, it's even possible to modulate third-party plugins and MIDI devices-or if you want to go completely nuts, modulate modulators with other modulators-and Thavius shows you all that, too!
So join Bitwig Certified Trainer Thavius Beck in this incredible modulation journey, and get ready for some serious modulation madness!
Thx, Thavius for the nice course. It's amazing how all the modulators are working in Bitwig.
As small addition, I would like to know why we are doing "this & that". In general I understood, we are going to have some nice sound, but it will be cool to have some background info, for example: we are doing this, because such thing will give us more freedom for drums (sorry, very newbie example).

Thavius once again did a great job explaining how to make something that seems complicated and intimidating really quite fun and musically inspiring. The short piece he makes in the process was totally cool.

Another fantastic course by Thavius Beck. He goes through every modulator, but more importantly he shows creative uses for them that are not immediately obvious. There's also some useful Bitwig "tips and tricks" sprinkled throughout (using and modulating the arpeggiator to create ever evolving hi-hat patterns for instance). Well worth the time.
