Going Beyond the Loop

As you'll learn in this course, Note FX are amazing tools for creating variations and adding controlled chaos to your music. The course begins with Thavius experimenting with the Randomize, Dribble and Quantize Note FX, turning a simple one-bar drum loop into a much more interesting pattern.The new Note FX in Bitwig Studio 4.1

Expressive Chords

Moving on from the drums, you learn to make your chords more expressive, by fragmenting the notes, somewhat like a guitarist would. Strumming is a guitar playing technique whereby the strings in a chord are heard quickly after one another instead of at the same time. Thavius reveals how to simulate this using the Strum note effect.

Unlimited Possibilities

Next is the new Ricochet device, which treats notes as balls that bounce and collide in a polygon, affecting panning and timbre. This Note FX is as much fun to hear than to watch!

So let a Bitwig Certified Trainer show you how to get the most out of Note FX. Join Thavius Beck in this course, and bring some controlled chaos into your music!
