Yahshua Yahudah Ben Yisrael: Bitwig Studio 4.3.3 New Features & Fixes

Yahshua is a relatively new creator in the Bitwig universe, so his perspective will be especially helpful to users who are coming to Bitwig from other DAWs. In his overviews of 4.3, he touches on some of the features that are unique to Bitwig while breaking down the more obscure updates in the latest version. It's nice to go over these more obscure features, such as FLAC support and the send/return toggle for individual tracks, as they can get lost in the hype around the new Audio FX.

Krinstar: Space/Generative/Chaotic/Ambience using Bitwig's 4.3's NoteGrid, Union, and a few other devices

Rather than a standard walkthrough of new features and devices, here you can see The Grid's new oscillators and filters in action. Krinstar explains a generative patch he made using Union oscillators and Comb filters, and it also triggers plug-ins on other tracks to create an atmospheric "anti-loop"-type soundscape. This one's short and sweet, so you'll have time to follow it up with Krinstar's video about the plug-in standard we launched, CLAP.
