Small Modulations - key to interesting and living sounds


Today I would like to deepen the argument that small modulations in the effect chain can do a lot for the liveliness of a sound. Bitwig in particular makes it possible to make small changes to parameters at any point using the flexible modulation system.

Where you used to have to be satisfied with 3 modulators built into the VST plugin, you can take full advantage of it here.

In this video I show how you can bring the sound to life with small modulations to pitch, cutoff, pan, delay times, offsets and fm. Even the "blur" device can be "slowly" modulated to produce a interesting stereo image. In nature nothing is as static as a software synth with the init preset.

So don't be afraid of modulators and random changes to the sound. No free device today, sorry :D
