Nektar announces Panorama workflow integration with BitWig Studio

Nektar Panorama integration with Bitwig Studio

Nektar has announced the deep integration with the Bitwig Studio DAW and the Nektar Panorama range of controllers featuring the unique and musician friendly direct DAW integration Nektar P series Keyboards are famous for.

From day one, Bitwig Studio will benefit from the extensive and transparent Panorama workflow integration that allows for controlling the Bitwig Studio mixer, instruments, effects, transport plus clip and scene launching right from Panorama P1, P4 or P6.

Building on Panorama’s workflow concept developed first for Reason and Cubase, additional functionality has been added to take full advantage of the Bitwig Studio controller API. This includes the ability to browse the instrument and effects device libraries of patches by category or creator, right from Panorama.

A step sequencer has also been included using the 8 LED buttons to program any of the up to 32 steps in a sequence. Panorama creates the events directly in Bitwig Studio so they are instantly part of a song and ready for further manipulation.
Taking advantage of the pads on the Panorama P4 and P6, it’s possible to trigger, create and record clips and scenes in absolute real-time. The Panorama display provides constant updates to show which clips are currently active, including the name of the clips available on the current track.

All things considered and also taking into account the compatibility of BitWig Studio with VST plug-ins, full navigation of all devices and their parameters, complete mixer control including motorized fader – the Panorama/Bitwig Studio combination may well be the most advanced hardware/software combination to date.

Registered owners of Panorama will be able to download the Panorama Bitwig Studio installer on March 26th, 2014.

The latest beta video highlights several of Bitwig Studio’s features for working with instrument clips.

Switch between clip- or track-based note editing, bring more life into your composition using note expressions and and per-note micro-pitch control, or use the histogram-based inspector function on several notes at once to randomize or spread parameter variances, changing the feel of your instrument clips.

Bitwig has posted another video of the Bitwig Studio beta, demonstrating the unified modulation system in Bitwig Studio.

Whether you’re working with macro controls, setting up modulation devices (such as LFOs or envelope followers controlling plug-ins), or just assigning velocity to the filter in our virtual analog synth—assignments are all made using the same powerful but easy-to-use concept.

Livid Instruments sneaks Bitwig Studio integration for its controllers

Livid Instruments has posted a video showing integration of its Base controller with the upcoming Bitwig Studio digital audio workstation software.

We’ve been working hard integrating the Base (and our other controllers) into the upcoming Bitwig Studio.

We’re pretty excited that with the latest beta, we were able to get an easy-to-use step sequencer up and running with their JavaScript API. This will ship natively in future Bitwig releases.

This video shows how some of this stuff works along with some of the other bells and whistles that you’ve come to expect!

Bitwig Studio Beta

Bitwig has announced that it has started its beta testing of the Bitwig Studio multi-platform music production and performance system.

We just sent out beta invites to our first group of testers and will be rolling out more invites gradually based on the amount of feedback and bug reports we get.

This staged rollout process gives us the time we need to address the most urgent issues and will help us avoid receiving too many duplicate bug reports.

Along with the beta, we are releasing a series of videos that will take you on a ride through some of the features of Bitwig Studio. We hope we can satisfy the curiosity of those of you who can’t take part in the beta testing yet. Sit back and enjoy!


Introduction to Bitwig Studio Beta by Dom Wilms.

Based on the feedback, ideas, and questions received during the last few months, Bitwig has also introduced a FAQ section to its website.
