How to modulate Midi-CC values in Bitwig Studio
to make a synth line played on a hardware synth more interesting you can modulate some parameters like filter cutoff, decay time, etc using a midi cc value. This can be done using bitwig studio by either using a automation lane sending the cc value or by using the cc device.
To use an automation lane simply click on the "Show automation lane" icon and select the controller value you want to send in the "midi" section
then draw the cc values in the lane you just created. I used this technique in my latest song to create the filter cutoff of the highpass filter on my moog mother32 for example
The second version uses the "Midi CC" device. With this device you can use bitwig's brilliant modulation sources to create the cc you want do send. You could combine several modulation sources like lfos step sequencers etc to influence your sounds.
To use the device simply drag the "Midi CC" device in front of your "HW Instrument" device or add it in the "Note FX" section.
then you can add modulators to the cc device - for example a beat-synced lfo - and use it to modulate the cc value you want to control.
