SFZ to Multisample converter - version 1.0.2

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-06-26T06:44:00+00:00

Version 1.0.2 of my sfz2multisample converter is out!

This version supports the default path attribute and uses a string tokenizer for parsing which improves the stability a lot.

Huge thanks for qptain-Nemo for all the testing-/debugging-/analyzing-sessions

bitwig quick trick - creating a multichorus only using bitwig plugins

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-03-17T05:51:28+00:00

Bitwig-Studio comes with a bunch of very cool synth- and fx-plugins and one of them is a chorus effect. This chorus effect plugin only uses one delay line and therefore sounds a bit thin when you want to create a wide pad sound for example. Most of these synth sounds use multiple delays with slightly different delay times to create a more dramatic effect.

Fortunately bitwig-studio allows you to create quite complex multieffect setups and even store them as presents for later use. So add a fx-layer plugin to your instrument- or audio-track

Multichorus - Step 1

Now add 3 instances of the chorus plugin

Multichorus - Step 2

Set the mix value of each of these to 100% and change the LFO Rate a bit. To change the intensity of the effect use the Mix-Value of the FX-Layer-plugin. To intensify the stereo effect you can adjust the Pan-Knob on each of the chorus effects.

Now save the multichorus as a present by activating the Present/Macro manager of the FX-Layer (the icon with the two triangles in the lower left corner of the plugin)

bitwig quick trick - how to create an adjustable keysplit

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-02-23T05:06:03+00:00

In Bitwig-Studio you can create quite complex filter-, routing-, and layering-setups that come quite handy when playing live or controlling several plugins/synths using only one masterkeyboard. In this quick-tip I show you how to create a key-split function where the split point can be adjusted while playing using a macro knob.

Start with a new Instrument channel and add an Instrument layer plugin from the Conainers-Section

Adjustable Keysplit - Step 1

Now add an Notefilter to the Instrument-Layer and add the Instrument plugin you want to play with your left hand after the Notefilter

This track evolved from a recorded volca bass jam session. Except for the bass line all synths are softsynths from bitwig-studio
