I really want to learn this DAW. I've tried digging into a random hodgepodge of Youtube videos, most of which are, uh, let's say inelegant. The other side, Bitwig's learning page:
https://www.bitwig.com/en/community/learning.html (https://www.bitwig.com/en/community/learning.html)

also does not appear conducive to actually learning Bitwig in any cohesive way (maybe I'm wrong?). I think I am just struggling to get beyond my juvenile knowledge of Bitwig. Some professional courseware would really, really help - How did you geniuses learn this thing, care to share?

:pray:

Easy: start out on FL Studio 😂 makes Bitwig seem like a breeze.

I always found it easier to start with a specific question and find a video to get my answer. It’s a more tailored approach and I don’t have to sit through hours of video that walks through what I already know or what I will mostly never use. Just my preference tho.

We’re the Brian Bollman vids not comprehensive enough?

I never figured there was a market for it but I’d always considered offering one on one screen share sessions for Bitwig users who are brand new to the DAW.

There's not much to it honestly. It's not like Logic or some other DAW with more options than you know what to do with. Learn the layout/workflow. A handful of shortcuts. Use the interactive help system, something no one had until recently. Read the User Guide. Add some tips and tricks on top, because it's often the case that there's many ways to do something, and you're pretty much good to go. You can also always ask or search here if you get stuck. A couple weeks or less and you'll be on your way.

Anyways, there's a guy called Thavius Beck that does some videos on the basics and more if you need video. Not sure how useful they are. Check it out. You can also check out Baphometrix and or Polarity Music on youtube if you haven't already. Plenty of tips, tricks and workflow ideas on their YT channels.

Hi...
I have bought all the courseware from ask.video about bitwig.
I have found It valuable.
Avoid the old 1.x stuff.
Of you are on Linux, like I am, you can follow using web browser.
I personally preferred to buy It instead of accessing via subscription because I have Also an iPad and sometimes I re-access the course from unconnected places. Personal taste.
Hope this helps,

Fabrizio

Bitwig is by far the most intuitive DAW I have used and the new built in help system is supurb. The problem is a lot of the 'learning' material is based on much older versions, BWS has been updated so frequently I guess its hard for anyone to make a video and keep it current! Probably the same reason there is now printed book on using it! I think there is a market for a realy good A- Z walkthrough of all the features from 3.2...but by then the 3.3 Beta will probably have dropped and who know what that adds!
i7 Win 10 PC+ Surface, BWS V3, StudioOne 4, Cubase 10, Live 9 suite, X32 Desk. , DM12, Odyssey, P8, Virus TI, 500hp Eurorack, Elektron A4, RYTM, Heat, Digitone, Deluge, OP-Z, Mother+DFAM, Drums, Guitars, Basses and Amps

DAWs are like languages. You learn the ins and outs of the first one without really thinking about it. Then you try that second DAW and it seems hard AF because you're fighting against concepts and workflow and "muscle memory" you've ingrained from the first DAW. But that 3rd DAW is easy peasy, because now your brain is flexible and you see the patterns that are common to ALL DAWs

If Bitwig is your 2nd DAW, my advice is to join the discord and just ask for help from the community there when you get stuck. And pay it forward to newcomers down the road when you've gotten over the learning curve ;)

There is someone offering a full Bitwig certification program on line. I'll see if I can find the links and update this post with the specifics.

Sorry it was an older post but it seems that they will be running it again if you follow the links...

Always wondered why Groove 3 offered nothing on Bitwig after v1

Haha, you *could* have just linked to two playlists that Mattias already made for such occasions. ;)

I was in email contact with noiselab.io back in January and they assured me that they would be adding some Bitwig tutorials later this year. Given that they have a lot of the Thavius Beck stuff on Ableton, maybe they will be releasing some of his Bitwig material, hopefully at a cheaper rate than via the Bitwig website 😉

Hi, Polarity (one of the Youtubers who do Bitwig tutorials and stuff) just uploaded a new beginners tutorial. I think he has a really good and clean way of teaching the program.

Have fun using Bitwig Studio. I use it for several years now and after getting the basic concepts it's really convenient to us (and got even better with the updates during the last years). For me it really has this long-term motivational factor and reusablity of my own created content is given because finding and organizing projects, sketches ('clips') and device presets is implemented really great as well.

[EDIT: exchanged video link (video was reuploaded)]
