Richie Hawtin Live Performance and Rig Tour

 

The video above captures a live techno set by Richie Hawtin, aka Plastikman, with a system based around Bitwig Studio.

 

In the second video below, Hawtin discusses his setup, including his custom API scripts for the Novation Launchpad Pro, AKAI Fire and a custom Yaeltex MIDI conroller to suit his workflow:

 

Richie Hawtin uses three different controllers for three different tasks:

 

  • The Novation Launchpad Pro provides direct access to Bitwig’s per-note Operators, so he can manually program rhythms for sounds;
  • The AKAI Fire acts as a classic drum machine sequencer; and
  • His custom Yaeltex externalises his use of Bitwig’s Arpeggiator to write melodies.

 

Take a look at how Hawtin uses his custom Yaeltex controller:
