Bitwig has announced the release of the previously announced Bitwig Studio 2.2, a major update to the music production software for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Bitwig Studio offers a number of ways to integrate with other technology: MIDI, MIDI Clock Master/Slave, MTC, CV & Gate and hardware audio clock; Ableton Link is the latest addition to this versatile feature set.

Bitwig Studio 2.2 out now

Link enables musicians to play in sync together across various software applications, platforms and mobile devices.

Bitwig Studio 2.2 supports Ableton’s Link technology out of the box, allowing users to connect multiple instances of Bitwig Studio via network connection (Wi-Fi and Ethernet), and to a vast range of music software such as Ableton Live, Reason, NI Traktor, NI Maschine and Serato DJ, as well as a growing number of iOS and Android apps.

Other additions include the new Time Shift device which allows for fine-grained time adjustments anywhere in the device chain, four new modulators, an on-screen keyboard panel, a new dual display profile Studio/Touch, and new sound content.

With Bitwig Studio 2.2 we’re expanding our sound content collection further, with some really classic sounds. Rare Organs and Keys is a brand new package in our extended collection, featuring three beautifully sampled vintage organs and keyboards: Philips Philicorda, Farfisa Syntorcestra and VOX Continental Baroque. This package is available from the package manager now.

Bitwig Studio 2.2 is available as a free update for all Bitwig Studio 2 license holders. A demo version is available.

New users can purchase Bitwig Studio 2 for 379 EUR/$399 USD.
