There are times in creation when somebody on the session isn’t cutting it. This can exhibit a tight spot.
The circumstances may shift as do the alternatives for an answer, however how about we take a gander at a few conceivable situations.
A Bit of an Awkward Situation
A lyricist comes to you to deliver a few melodies. They have a couple of musical artists they need to use on the recordings. I’m more often than not for this. It’s not my default to quickly need to get just my kin. I like working with new individuals with diverse thoughts and viewpoints.
Now and again however, there is a player that doesn’t have enough studio experience.
Generally, the musician doesn’t know already.
When the sound is off the beaten path the most imperative occupation is carried out.
Be that as it may now we get to view blending as an imaginative medium.
While a voice recording studio will never have the force and effect of a live execution, the genuine sound execution can do things that can’t happen in nature. Furthermore that is a phenomenal thing.
Records, in the same way as film, have developed into their craft due to the control that can happen. We can make a sound that is “overwhelming”.
This comes in numerous structures: giving the sound a more noteworthy space, components that are more vivid than we would hear them even in the best of sound frameworks, forming sounds to have a stronger saw sway than they typically would, and so forth.
Bitwig Studio has introduced some interesting and functional effects, such as container devices. These can really help streamline some of your workflow production techniques. The XY Instrument is a great tool to build up complex instruments. The beauty of this container is that you can combine 4 instruments together plus morph between the 4 with the XY interface of the device. Let’s take a look at how to build up a multi-instrument with this container and how to morph between them to create interesting soundscapes.
Using the XY Instrument
Bitwig Studio’s devices are broken into 3 categories: Audio FX, Instruments, and Containers. On the Browser panel on the right you can see these three types of devices. Expand the Container folder, and then drag the XY Instrument onto a blank area on the tracks panel. This will create an Instrument with the XY Instrument container loaded into it. Double-click this instrument to open up the XY Instrument. You’ll see on the interface that it has four quadrants: A, B, C, D. An instrument can be loaded into each of these.
Select the A quadrant by clicking on it. Now click on the plus sign column that appears once the A quadrant is selected. I’m going to add a PolySynth instrument. You could also drag and drop the instrument directly on the A box, as Bitwig supports drag and drop functionality throughout the application.
How about choosing a preset for the Polysynth? To do this select the Polysynth under the Browser – Devices and Presets tab on the right and then underneath it, it’ll show the presets. Select the Astropad preset and drag it onto either the Polysynth instrument or the A quadrant. Now load up another instrument into the B quadrant. This time let’s use the FM4. Do the same by dragging an FM4 preset to the B quadrant. I’m going to use the Airhorn preset. Go through and add an extra two instruments of your choice to the C and D quadrants. You can even use your third-party instruments in these quadrants, as it doesn’t only have to be Bitwig instruments. Maybe you want to build up a complex instrument to include Bitwig Studio synths, plus Sylenth, and Massive. Your third-party instruments will be shown in the VST Plug-ins Folder.
If you want to edit a particular quadrant just click on it, and its respective instrument will be shown on the right of the device panel. You can also add extra effects to each instrument. So for example, let’s say you wanted to add a distortion effect to the Polysynth, and then some delay on the FM4. Simply select an audio effect under the Audio FX folder in the Browser Devices – Presets tab, and then drag it onto the B quadrant. Bitwig will add the effect after the instrument. If you have added a few effects, you can drag the header of the effect to change its location in the effects chain. Maybe you want your distortion to be placed after a chorus effect. So adding effects to each individual instrument in the XY Instrument container gives you even more control on designing a complex sound for your multi-instrument.
