I guess no Bitwig 3.4 / 4.0 announcement today, because we just got a new video as a part of "Modular concepts" series.

:phones: :party:
If you are shaping sounds, you are using synthesis techniques. And lucky for us, the Polymer instrument makes it easy on both sides of our brain. This tutorial runs thru six — SIX! — kinds of synthesis with the assistance of Bitwig's modulator devices. It is Polymer's world; we just live in it.

1:17 - An overview of Polymer
2:54 - Pulse waves are predictable!
3:51 - Stop 1: Pulse Width Modulation
4:46 - Interesting textures, that even get quiet!
6:11 - Stop 2: Phase Distortion
6:54 - Morphing shape and keeping the fundamental!
8:32 - Stop 3: Hard Sync
10:27 - Miami Vice! Hammer time!
12:02 - Stop 4: Phase Modulation
17:21 - Stop 5: Wavetable Synthesis
18:33 - Ramp modulator to read/loop each note!
19:54 - Stop 6: Unison Techniques
20:30 - Wavetable has its own unison modes!
22:51 - Every oscillator has stereo detune!
23:45 - And Swarm has eight voices of unison fire!

Cool video, I like that they are not using filters. starting from phase-4 I saw how you can get crazy living sounds without even turning the filter on.

In the future, buy an upgrade when it is on sale ($129). You can activate it any time and it only starts counting the year from when you activate.

Hey Thx, hopefully I can use that strategy in the future. The point I was making was in response to the post earlier - I hope bitwig isn't finished and they don't discontinue development after I paid for another year worth of upgrades (be it $129 or $169). That would suck and be as waste of $$, but would be spot on with my luck lol.

The no-filters-approach was eye opening, even tho it was a struggle to keep my eyes open with his relaxed style.

it's so cool on paper, but I'm still not really liking the sound of Bitwig synthesis. :/
