Synthesist Reloaded - Masterclass

Come visit us at the Abbey Road Studio booth and see and learn how Synthesist Reloaded, Harald Grosskopf together with Andreas Kolinski and Michael Wirtz, perform live and how they create sound patterns using drums, modular synths, and how they integrate with Bitwig Studio.

 Falko Brocksieper, Certified Bitwig Professional, will further present how to make use of Bitwig Studios advanced Modulation System and how to create generative music.

 The concert and Masterclass are hosted by Abbey Road Institute and organised by Keyboards and Bitwig.
