Bitwig has introduced Bitwig Studio, a new and powerful multi-platform music-creation-system for composing, performing and DJing.
We are very proud to announce our first upcoming product: Bitwig Studio, the next-generation music-creation software, developed and built by passionate musicians wanting a more natural way to create music and sound.
Bitwig Studio features
- Multitrack recording – Record and produce your music in a super-fast, intuitive workflow. Bitwig Studio’s arranger is a perfect mix of editing power, ease of use and flexibility.
- Arranger clip launcher – A non-linear environment that lets you trigger clips in real-time. Perfect for sketching your songs more spontaneously.
- Mixer clip launcher – An alternative view of the clip launcher aligned with the mixer, optimized for live performance and DJing.
- Generic tracks – Tracks accept any kind of material. Audio and notes can live on the same track. You can bounce note clips to audio in place.
- Clip automation – In addition to traditional track automation, automation can also be recorded and packaged inside clips, both on the clip launcher and the arranger.
- Per-note automation – Pitch variations can be applied to individual notes directly in the piano roll. You can also edit a note’s panning, timbre and volume curves.
- Simultaneous multitrack editing – Edit contents of multiple tracks together. You can see them all juxtaposed and isolate only the ones you want to edit.
- Multiple audio events per clip – An audio clip can contain multiple audio events. You can chop and edit audio files inside a clip non-destructively and loop it all as a package.
- Real-time time stretching – Bitwig Studio’s proprietary technology lets you match any audio material to the document tempo and get everything in sync.
- World-class sound devices – Let’s put it this way: You’re gonna love these instruments and effects. Get great sounds in a matter of seconds.
- Device nesting – Devices can contain other devices, and the whole package can be saved as a preset. Many of our instruments and effects use nesting in new and powerful ways.
- 32/64 bit VST support – Use your beloved VST plug-ins. In case of a plug-in crash, a protective mechanism prevents the application from crashing and you from losing your work.
- Metadata-based browser – Find your musical material quickly. Add tags and search by content type.
- Open multiple documents – Exchange musical material between documents. Drag and drop, copy and paste back and forth.
- Multi-monitor support – Bitwig Studio offers flexible screensets to take full advantage of your monitor configuration.
- Slick user interface – Bitwig Studio’s user interface has been meticulously crafted to make your music creation experience fun and intuitive.
Features coming after the 1.0 release:
- LAN multi-user jamming – Multiple users can jam on the same document, and everything can be captured in the document’s arrangement.
- Multi-user music production over the internet – Multiple users can compose music on the same document from different locations. Bitwig Studio keeps everything in sync.
- Native modular system – Create your own instruments and effects or modify existing ones. Design their appearance and share them with the world.
A beta testing period for Bitwig Studio will start soon. Pricing and release date will be announced at a later date.
