can you develop more about advantages of this software vs ableton or studio 1 ?
i am interested also.
So in bitwig you can modulate any knob. So, you could create an LFO, and attach it to a parameter on any VST. you could then create an audio follower using your kick drum as the source, and attach that to the LFO speed, so that every time the kick drum happens, the LFO speed increases on the VST knob you assigned the LFO to.
It had a note mode too, so you can get it to follow some MIDI data, like a melody, then use the note trigger as another signal to attach to anything else you like, this has an envelope so you can change the ADSR of the modulation. I made a MIDI gater with this which surpasses any VST MIDI gater I have ever used
Bitwig encourages you to make your own instruments. It doesn't even come with a phaser, it gives you a comb filter, and you can attach that to a LFO to turn it into a phaser. This kind of control and customisation on everything is very powerful, you will finding yourself building your own effects and presets, I've made a complex filter that splits the audio into left and right and subtly modulates the cuttoff on both chanells differently so it gently undulates also as you sweep up and down, you can then attach the LFO amount and speed to macro controls, which could then be linked to another LFO or audio follower etc, the possibilities are endless.
Another great feature is how you can easily copy and paste stuff between different projects, that you can both have open at the same time
Say I have built a massive drum kit that uses 10 instances of kontact and loads of effects and uses as lot of memory and CPU, I can just bounce the audio, then cut and paste the channels intoa separate track and save it. I can then, if I want to change it further down the line you can just copy and paste it back into your original track.. this whole thing allows you to cannibalise stuff from failed tracks or easily grab things you want to resuse.
