Features and Highlights
Customized workflow to match any style
The software features a flexible panel based user interface; you have the power to choose what you wish to see depending on task, on up to three monitors.
Your limitless creative space
The Detail Editor optimizes audio editing by allowing you to perform non-destructive edits within a clip. This allows you to stretch, split, pitch, pan, copy, reverse, add, move and re-arrange audio as you choose. Edit multiple tracks in the same view, notes using audio as a reference, isolate your view to one clip or expand it to see the everything in the entire track.
The most expressive DAW in the industry
Besides standard note editing features, and per note expressions such as Velocity, Gain, Pan, Timbre and Pressure, the studio features unique tools like micro pitch and sophisticated layered editing, and is a forefront runner in supporting MPE.
A device in a device in a device in a device
Device Nesting is a powerful feature for sound design with any combination of Bitwig devices and VST plugins. From Container Devices to FX slots, virtually anywhere you imagine another device could go, it probably will. Nesting Devices means that you can place a device in a device in a device... theoretically, this can go on forever.
Modulating one parameter from the next often means losing hands-on control – until now. The software is hard-coded with a Unified Modulation System, allowing you to easily link any device parameter, including nested internal devices and VST plug-ins, without losing hands-on control. Never before has modulating virtually any parameter between devices been so simple. Nothing is locked, so you can manipulate on the fly to find the perfect range of modulation. Make your devices take on a life of their own, create dynamic relationships between sounds, and hear your music begin to breathe.
Bitwig Studio connects your eco system
The tool plugs right in to your existing setup. With modern software architecture 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are natively supported, no third-party bridging is necessary to run your favorite plugins side-by-side. Dedicated Hardware Instrument and Effect devices allow you to control your hardware synthesizers, drum machines and effect racks from within your project.
Never again will a single plugin take down your entire project. The “sandboxing” feature built-in to the program ensures plug-in crashes will not interrupt valuable production time, or your performance on stage. The music studio protects your workflow while efficiently running your VSTs for non-stop creativity.
Limited to one idea? Think again
The bassline from your last session could be the missing piece of your current project. The rhythm section in your latest song carries perfectly over to the next. No need to close anything or dig through complex file structures. With BitwigStudio, open multiple projects at the same time and drag-and-drop between them.
The dynamic Inspector panel is a workflow accelerator. It changes depending on where you are and shifts focus with you, to give you easy access to the tools you need. The Inspector allows you to simultaneously edit multiple notes, Events, Clips or Tracks. The Histogram is a feature of the Inspector panel that offers a unique way of working with randomization and variation.
Simplify your mix
Group Tracks is a tried and true way to quickly manage multiple parts of a mix at once. Grouping similar tracks together allows them to be controlled together as a unit and is a great help in organizing your workspace.
Browse, Audition, Insert, Swap
The Pop-Up Browser makes auditioning and selecting Devices, Presets, VSTs and Samples fast, intuitive and inspiring. With powerful search and filter tools it’s never been easier to locate, or discover the sound you're looking for.
