Teaser: Bitwig Studio – Demo Song for the upcoming Beta

June 22, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Bitwig Studio. The new music production and performance system. Below are a list of key features as they were mentioned when we posted about this product back in January.

Here are the features for this new live performance and production DAW:

  • Multitrack recording – Record and produce your music in an intuitive workflow. Bitwig Studio’s arranger is a mix of editing power, ease of use and flexibility.
  • Arranger clip launcher – A non-linear environment that lets you trigger clips in real-time.
  • Mixer clip launcher – An alternative view of the clip launcher aligned with the mixer, optimized for live performance and DJing
  • Generic tracks – Tracks accept any kind of material. Audio and notes can live on the same track. You can bounce note clips to audio in place.
  • Clip automation – In addition to traditional track automation, automation can also be recorded and packaged inside clips, both on the clip launcher and the arranger.
  • Per-note automation – Pitch variations can be applied to individual notes directly in the piano roll. You can also edit a note’s panning, timbre and volume curves.
  • Simultaneous multitrack editing – Edit contents of multiple tracks together. You can see them all juxtaposed and isolate only the ones you want to edit
  • Multiple audio events per clip – An audio clip can contain multiple audio events. You can chop and edit audio files inside a clip non-destructively and loop it all as a package.
  • Real-time time stretching – Bitwig Studio’s proprietary technology lets you match any audio material to the document tempo and get everything in sync.
  • ‘World-class’ sound devices
  • Device nesting – Devices can contain other devices, and the whole package can be saved as a preset. Many of preset instruments and effects use nesting in new and powerful ways.
  • 32/64 bit VST support – Use your VST plug-ins. In case of a plug-in crash, a protective mechanism prevents the application from crashing and you from losing your work.
  • Metadata-based browser – Find your musical material quickly. Add tags and search by content type.
  • Open multiple documents – Exchange musical material between documents. Drag and drop, copy and paste back and forth.
  • Multi-monitor support – Bitwig Studio offers flexible screensets to take full advantage of your monitor configuration
  • ‘Slick’ user interface – Bitwig Studio’s user interface has been designed with the goal of making your music creation experience ‘fun and intuitive’.

These are the key features for Bitwig 1.0.

Bitwig has several more interesting features under development. These are planned for a later release:

  • LAN multi-user jamming – Multiple users can jam on the same document, and everything can be captured in the document’s arrangement
  • Multi-user music production over the internet – Multiple users can compose music on the same document from different locations. Bitwig Studio keeps everything in sync.
  • Native modular system – Create your own instruments and effects or modify existing ones. Design their appearance and share them with the world.

Nice live looping improvisation jam

June 13, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Rheyne in a nice session featuring lots of nice controllers, synths and pads, enjoy

Live looping improv jam using analog keyboards, USB controllers, and iOS devices. iPads are running Animoog, Lemur, and SoundPrism Pro. SP Pro is triggering NI’s Massive through an iConnectMIDI. A DJ TechTools MIDI Fighter 3D is controlling loopers, drums, and a monophonic synth. Its rotation is mapped to filters and vibrato. Normally my drums are played on an Akai MPD26, but wanted to get used to the MF3D for a portable live rig. An Akai APC20 and Novation Launchpad are controlling the recording and playback of loops in Ableton Live. The DSI MoPho, Fender Rhodes, and Moog Prodigy are all running through a PreSonus 1818VSL connected to a Macbook Pro. All loops are recorded live.

This is a live controllerism routine. No loops, no pre-recorded patterns, just buttons, samples and a little practice.
The track is called “Waking Up” and it’s the first of my productions to be sampled and chopped into little bits and one shots for the purpose of live performance.

Buchla Boys heavy beats live patching

March 11, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Part of the first set of the last concert at the 2012 Sirén Festival. This is a festival arranged by the students at the composition and individual programs at the Academy of Music and Drama, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Buchla Boys are David Sabel and Niklas Sjösvärd, and they’re performing on a 1980′s 5-panel Serge and a 18-size Buchla 200e, both belonging to the Lindblad Studios at the Academy. The patching is improvised, and there’s a crowd dancing behind them (too dark to film). This is part of a longer set, and there’s more photage coming, of higher quality.

This was filmed with a mobile camera.
