18. Un­der­stand­ing Con­tain­ers

Computer Music - - Make Music Now / Bitwig Studio 2 8-Track -

1 Con­tain­ers are a means by which mul­ti­ple in­ter­con­nected plu­g­ins may be cre­ated, edited and stored for fu­ture use. You can use them to wrap up your favourite vo­cal chain ef­fects or mas­ter­ing tools, or cre­ate bizarre mul­ti­ef­fects. Here, we’ve soloed our FM bass clip and looped it for play­back. 2 Look­ing to the Bitwig De­vices cat­e­gory in the Browser, we see that some of the De­vices are de­noted by folder icons. These are Con­tain­ers, de­signed to fa­cil­i­tate the cre­ation of ef­fects chains. Find the Chain con­tainer and drag it onto our FM-4 track. It doesn’t do any­thing yet, as there are no ef­fects as­so­ci­ated with it. 3 Note the blue ‘bracket’ over the top of our Chain con­tainer. Now, we’ll drag a Comb De­vice into the Chainer’s Chain bin. The bracket ex­pands in or­der to en­com­pass the Comb ef­fect, too, which, in turn, has its own green bracket. We can now tweak the Comb De­vice’s set­tings to taste. Cool! 4 We drag a De­lay-1 ef­fects De­vice into the Chain. The blue bracket now en­com­passes this de­vice, too. Note that you can drag ef­fects into the in­di­vid­ual De­vices, as we’ve done with a fil­ter on our De­lay’s Feed­back. All our Con­tainer con­tents can be saved for later use – but we’ve got one last thing to show you first!
