Let’s Build a… Synthesizer [BITWIG STUDIO 3]

This tutorial constructs a basic synthesizer. Taking a classic approach of three mixed sound sources, we explore oscillator detuning, amplitude vs. filter envelopes, waveshaping, modulation, and even injecting audio samples. A good example of turning an idea into a new instrument in Bitwig Studio and The Grid.

0:30 – Just one oscillator to start
1:11 – Source 2: another oscillator and mixer
1:51 – Two sources with pitch & frequency offsets
3:09 – Adding a filter…
3:42 – …and a filter envelope
5:13 – Source 3: noise generator
5:41 – Separate noise envelope (local vs global control)
7:01 – Source 1 gets a waveshaper (local vs global control) and modulation
8:27 – Crossfading source 1 & 2
9:37 – Source 4 is… a Sampler!
