Following a short beta phase, Bitwig has announced the release of Bitwig Studio 4 is out now and available to the world.

With Bitwig Studio version 4 new musical timelines have arrived.

This means comping for audio clips, both in the Clip Launcher and the Arranger. A new set of Operators for changing the chance, recurrence and more of any note or audio event. Random Spread for any expression point (like per-note pitch or audio panning) with perfect control. Bitwig Studio 4 has native Apple Silicon support on Mac and even allows Intel and ARM plug-ins to work side-by-side.

Bitwig Studio 4 for Windows, Mac and Linux is out now and it is a free upgrade to everyone with an active Upgrade Plan for Bitwig Studio. All new features except comping are also part of Bitwig Studio 16-Track and 8-Track.

The new Anti-Loops sound package uses Bitwig Studio 4’s new features to push the idea of what a loop is to the breaking point. Because after all, maybe the best loops don’t.

Get lost in the ever-changing landscape of somewhat-unpredictable, sometimes-irregular and always-interesting “Anti-Loops.”

The Anti-Loops package consists of 100+ clips with sequenced notes and audio that utilize comping and Operators in creative ways. Operators for notes and audio events allow for boundless musical diversity and change, and the specially prepared comping clips hold hidden variations for you to discover. Expert sound designers like Cristian Vogel, Polarity and Pat Cupo crafted these sounds to be added into any track or used as a first element to get your project started. When something arhythmic becomes rhythmic, or when a looping element feels a little variable and almost broken — that’s something worth building a track on.

So much more than flat WAVs, the Anti-Loops clips are ready to be edited and reworked as much or as little as you like. Use the Anti-Loops clips to learn, as inspiration, or as starting points for your own musical journeys.

Anti-Loops is available for all Bitwig Studio customers with an active Upgrade Plan.
