For this session I used the novation launchpad step sequencer for bitwig to create sequences for my volca synths (hence the name)

Bitwig Controller-Script for M-Audio iControl

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-10-05T16:05:31+00:00

In bitwig-studio you controller mappings can be scripted using a javascript api. Fortunately most of the midi controllers I own (Launchpad, nanoKontrol, nanoPad, ...) are already mapped and all I had to do was to connect them. This weekend I found my very first hardware usb controller I bought back in the days when iMacs looked like candy and macos X was released. The M-Audio iControl for GarageBand. As the name suggests it was designed to work with GarageBand a very striped down version of Logic that came for free with MacOS X.

Since I wanted to play with the bitwig controler api for some time now I took the challange and wrote a midi mapping for the controller.

Sax Loop

This is a recording of a bitwig/launchpad/volca jam session that evolved around a saxophone sample that comes with bitwig. I also intended to record a video of the session but unfortunately I forgot to check the batteries of my camera so I only recorded the first 2 seconds :-/


sverchok experiment 2 - bmesh animation

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-13T09:00:54+00:00

This is my second sverchok experiment. For this animation I used a bmesh creation tool and modified the transformation matrix using a node setup that's depending on the current frame number. The flapping sound was created using bitwig-studio

My first Track in Bitwig-Studio

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-05T10:42:51+00:00

I got BitWig-Studio this week and this is the first complete track I´ve recorded. I used my volca beats and keys, my mininova and some of the internal instruments of bitwig. I really like the FM4-synth and the sampler in BitWig.
