Bitwig has announced the 1 year anniversary of Bitwig Studio, celebrating the event by offering free copies of u-he plugins, gift vouchers for existing license holders, and the release of the Cristian Vogel Bitwig Lab artist collection.

On March 26th, 2014, Bitwig Studio was introduced to the world. Over the year we received incredible support from you, our press partners, and the ever-growing Bitwig Community. They watched, shared and hosted hundreds of hours of commercial and free learning videos, jumped on our Open Controller API resulting in the most sweeping control script library available online.

There’s nothing more we can say than “Thank You.” Thank you for your tremendous support, a great year, and the excitement for what’s to come…

To celebrate this moment, we’ve partnered with our Berlin friends and plug-in wizards at u-he. Anyone who purchases Bitwig Studio in the coming week will get a free license for ACE or Bazille. The bigger news: all existing license holders will get a free $50 gift voucher toward the purchase of any u-he plugin.

Who else are we a fan of? Cristian Vogel. For over 20 years, Cristian Vogel has been at the vanguard of electronic music, pushing the boundaries of production and performance. As a special gift to us and the entire Bitwig Community, Cristian Vogel created the first contribution to the Artist Collection for Bitwig Studio, the “Cristian Vogel Bitwig Lab.”
