In this third Bitwig Studio introduction video, Dubspot LA instructor James Bernard explores some of the powerful editing features that are available when working with audio clips.
Bitwig Studio Tutorial: Editing Audio Clips
Bitwig gives you access to common audio editing features like pitch, gain, pan, reverse and time stretch. You can access these features directly inside of the audio clip or by using quick key commands. Because Bitwig borrows some workflow ideas from other popular DAWs, editing audio clips in Bitwig feels very familiar but offers some exciting new twists.
One of the unique editing features in Bitwig Studio is the idea of “events” in audio clips. Events can edited using any of the available features individually and can contain audio from multiple sources, which opens up many creative possibilities. For example, you could change the pitch and pan of each different drum hit in a loop, copy and repeat event sections and even reverse individual hits – all within the same audio clip.
Stay tuned for more videos in the series as we continue to explore all the features of Bitwig Studio. If you you missed the previous tutorials within this series, check out what’s on offer within parts one and two.
