Bitwig Studio

Bitwig Studio – Release im März 2014

Das lange warten hat für viele endlich ein Ende und Bitwig Studio erscheint am 26. März 2014 für Windows, Mac OS X sowie Linux. Hinter der mit Spannung erwarteten DAW steckt unter anderem ein Team aus ehemaligen Ableton-Entwicklern un soll euch 299 Euro in der Download Version kosten, oder 329 Euro in der Boxed Version. Das Programm ermöglicht euch Mehrspuraufnahmen sowie Arranger- & Mixerbasiertes Starten von Clips und im Gegensatz zu anderen DAW’s (DigitalAudioWorkstation) gibt es keine Trennung von Audio- und MIDI-Spuren, ihr könnt einfach beide einfach in einer Spur hinzufügen und bearbeiten.

Auf Automation wird ebenfalls großen Wert gelegt und so ermöglichen euch Clip und Per-note Automation komplexe Automatisierungen wie z.B. abgefahrene Pitch & Panning Variationen. Die Benutzeroberfläche wirkt übersichtlich, ermöglicht das öffnen von mehreren Projekten mit Copy&Paste und Drag&Dop zwischen den Dokumenten . Da hierfür schon mal mehr Platz am Monitor benötigt wird unterstützt Bitwig Studio das arbeiten an drei Bildschirmen. An Soundtüftler wird ebenfalls gedacht und dank nativem Modularsystem können so eigenen Instrumente und Effekte erstellt werden.


  • Multitrack recording
    Record and produce your music in a super-fast, intuitive workflow.
    Bitwig Studio’s arranger is a perfect mix of editing power, ease of use and flexibility.
  • Arranger clip launcher
    A non-linear environment that lets you trigger clips in real-time. Perfect for sketching your songs more spontaneously.
  • Mixer clip launcher
    An alternative view of the clip launcher aligned with the mixer, optimized for live performance and DJing.
  • Generic tracks
    Tracks accept any kind of material. Audio and notes can live on the same track. You can bounce note clips to audio in place.
  • Clip automation
    In addition to traditional track automation, automation can also be recorded and packaged inside clips, both on the clip launcher and the arranger.
  • Per-note automation
    Pitch variations can be applied to individual notes directly in the piano roll. You can also edit a note’s panning, timbre and volume curves.
  • Simultaneous multitrack editing
    Edit contents of multiple tracks together. You can see them all juxtaposed and isolate only the ones you want to edit.

    An audio clip can contain multiple audio events. You can chop and edit audio files inside a clip non-destructively and loop it all as a package.
