A few weeks after the announcement of a beta release, Bitwig has announced the availability of Bitwig Studio 4.3, the latest update to the music production software for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Bitwig Studio 4.3 is out now. The new version introduces some new devices (Convolution and Delay+), improvements to our flagship synthesizers, a load of fresh sound content in the form of an impulse response library plus an additional, massive sound package of analog-inspired presets, and support for the cutting-edge plug-in technology CLAP.

Additionally, Bitwig has launched the new Perfect Drift sound package, available as part of the Essentials Collection in Bitwig Studio.

Perfection is one of humanity’s greatest myths. Nature doesn’t draw straight lines, nor does it make static noises. Instead, lines curve and sounds shift, creating beauty out of imperfections. That’s the idea behind the synth patches and presets in this sound package, Perfect Drift, which approximate analog drift in a digital ecosystem.

This sound package contains over 100 presets and clips of familiar patches and classic-sounding synths, some of which were modeled on the work of analog pioneers. Most of the presets were made for The Grid and Polymer and make use of the Union oscillator and Moog-inspired Low-Pass MG filter to create organic sounds that meander, evolve, and come alive.

Bitwig Studio 4.3 is out now for anyone with a Bitwig Studio license and an active Upgrade Plan. The updates to Polymer are also available for Bitwig Studio 16-Track customers, as well as the workflow updates and CLAP.

The software is currently available at a discounted price as part of a Summer Special until July 31st, 2022:

  • Bitwig Studio: 299 USD/EUR instead of 399 USD/EUR
  • Bitwig 16-Track: 79 USD/EUR instead of 99 USD/EUR

The offer is available at the Bitwig store and from distributor Plugin Boutique.
