The Bitwig MasterClass contains brand new episodes with a playtime over 4 hours.
The videos are recorded in crisp 4K with 24 bit audio for best quality!
Firstly, you will become familiar with the modern user introduce of Bitwig. Secondly, we will look at the most important areas of Bitwig to get started making music. Furthermore, you will learn to work in the arrangement view.
Yes, Bitwig is extremely powerful for music production and sound design.
Of course, we will also cover more advanced areas like modulators and automation.
Note: In coming episodes we will also look at the clip launcher view and how to use arranger and clips at the same time! Furthermore we will take a closer look at the new Operators functionality.
The additional episodes will be published AFTER initial masterclass launch – sometime in November.
My belief is that a music software should always be taught from a musical perspective, rather than a technical (boring) entrypoint. If you are familiar with my Bitwig Basics and Bitwig advanced work on YouTube you know exactly what to expect and how I work when teaching Bitwig Studio.

While my old Bitwig Studio Basics series is freely available on YouTube, I felt it was time to make an updated, exclusive and more cohesive video series.
Firstly, the basics series has a few years on it’s back. Features are added and iterated in DAWs.
Secondly, the Bitwig Masterclass is several levels above in quality and content value. It’s up-to-date with the latest version of Bitwig. And I’ve learned a ton by making the previous “basics” series. With the masterclass I want to give you the best possible foundation in Bitwig!
Minimum requirement is Bitwig Studio 3.3 to get the most out of the masterclass.
I always ship manuals & install instructions in the preset packs. But I also made a video on how to install third party presets…using the Producer Essentials Pack Vol 1 as demo here:
