Summamutikka resurrected!

After nearly 20 years, I found I started making music as Summamutikka again. Here is the first release, a few no-nonsense 90s style goa trance tracks. 100% of the profts go to support Survival International and their work towards indigenous communities around the world.

Harmonic effects for Bitwig 2.x

In this tutorial, we will learn how to calculate semitone values for the individual partials in the harmonic series, and create a filter effect based on this, as well as modify this effect so that we can remove partials at will from sounds.

The tutorial assumes knowledge of Bitwig’s basic functionality.

Poly modal impulse resonator synth for Bitwig 2.5

Originally this was just an experiment that got a bit out of hand, but eventually I found the instrument to be so useful to me that I went through the considerable trouble of cleaning it up for release.

Hippie Tipi & Puzzle Effect 7.-8.-12.

I have some new music I wrote as Summamutikka that I tried out already at Kosmos and Lost in Summertime earlier this year, cool to see how they work out this time :) I haven’t been terribly active writing trance, as I’ve been writing an album of more slow, organic music under a new project name. Anyway, I have all the classics coming up, and possibly a few small new bits.

Oh, and 8.12. is “The day of Finnish music” officially in Finland. So, what could be a more suitable day?-)

Aavepyörä Audio Crafting #4 – Building a wavetable oscillator in Bitwig

I saw many people requesting that Bitwig would get a native wavetable synth.

So here’s just how to do one yourself, and also load wavetables from Komplexer, Serum and other wavetable synths.

(Notice that this was written before the new Sampler with the cycles mode, which pretty much does this internally, so you’ll probably just want to use that! I’ll leave this here since Audio-Term is useful on it’s own right and great for generating wavetables!)
