What if notes did more than trigger your sounds? As musical signals that dance and curve, notes just do more in Bitwig Studio, both on the timeline and in performance. Version 4.1 is here, adding eight new note effects. So with 20+ FX now included, we say… LET THERE BE NOTES!by Bitwig
Ricochet treats notes as bouncing balls in a room, which retrigger on collision and can use their position to animate panning and timbre.
Humanize randomizes chance, timing, or velocity.
And Quantize holds notes until the next beat, with optional "Forgiveness".
Dribble bounces each note, until gravity wins.
Randomize adds chaos to any note expression, including pitch.
And Strum fragments your chords, playing them one (or more) note at a time.
Bend slides to each note's pitch.
Note Repeats retriggers each note, with additional "Burst" and "Euclid" pattern modes.
.A handful of other enhancements are worth noting. Color palettes are now available for tracks, clips, and layers. So if you want to turn an image into a palette, just drop a JPG or PNG into the Bitwig Studio window. Track MIDI output is now directly available (and or via the HW Instrument device when you need delay compensation). Our Sampler now has a Release chain, where each note release triggers an instrument of your choice. So you can now import an SFZ file with both press and release samples, or try out a synth or VST to make any sound newly responsive. And a few other note FX got some love as well.by Bitwig
