Announcing Bitwig Studio 3.3
Quicker sound design, editing, access, and a world of Wavetable fun. Welcome to Bitwig Studio 3.3.
Customized Workflow To Match Any Style
Bitwig Studio is the single solution for realizing any musical idea across every stage of production.
Powerful Editing Tools
We want to help you make your musical ideas happen, in as few steps as possible. Focus on the music, not the tool.
The Detail Editor optimizes audio editing by letting you make edits within a clip. This allows you to stretch, split, pitch, pan, copy, reverse, add, move, and rearrange audio as you choose.
Expressive MIDI Support
In addition to standard note-editing features and per-note expressions such as velocity, gain, pan, timbre, and pressure, Bitwig Studio features unique tools like quick actions, micro pitch, and sophisticated layered editing, and is a forefront runner in supporting MPE.
Keep your audio material in time regardless of project tempo using Bitwig Studio's state-of-the-art time stretching. Let Bitwig Studio analyze and automatically stretch your audio, or take full control and use our advanced stretching and editing tools.
Bitwig Studio comes with 8 different time stretch algorithms to cover all your musical needs, including the renowned Zplane Elastique in four flavors.
Instruments & Effects
Here’s a taste of the vast and ever-growing device library that comes with Bitwig Studio. With over 90 different instruments, audio and note FX, container devices, and signal routers you can translate any idea into music.
The Bitwig Studio Sampler is a powerful tool for playing and manipulating audio. It boasts several playback modes, advanced looping features with crossfades, endless modulation possibilities, a massive multisample editor, and more.
EQ+ is a feature-packed graphical equalizer with up to 8 bands, mouse gestures, and excellent visualization and algorithms.
The Drum Machine is a container device that you can fill with sonic goodness. It's never been easier to create unique and great-sounding kits.
Inject a bit of virtual analog grit into your sounds with the Amp device, a remarkable piece of amplifier-simulation technology.
Micro-pitch is a Note FX device that allows you to re-tune your note streams in new ways. Fine-tune individual notes, transform scales, shrink or expand octaves, play notes that you would never have imagined.
The modulation system in Bitwig Studio allows you to use Macro controls, Note Expressions, LFOs, and Envelopes to modulate any device, VST plug-in, or hardware parameter. With 30+ modulators (and counting) the potential for creative expression is endless.
We love hardware. We also love software. That’s why we want to blur the boundaries between the two.
Let Bitwig Studio control your hardware, or let your hardware control Bitwig Studio, or both, via MIDI, CC, CV, Gate, analog and MIDI Clock, and MIDI Timecode. Enjoy a collection of straightforward tools that allow you to take advantage of the best of two worlds, and that scales with your setup.
Building a DAW from the ground up allowed us to think differently and solve old problems in new ways.
Bitwig Studio is made for the future...
Bitwig Studio handles VST plug-in hosting in a unique way, allowing for different hosting modes and plug-in crash protection. With plug-ins, the audio engine, and other processes running in separate threads, a technical issue won't bring your whole project down.
With extensive touch-screen support (multi-touch with unlimited touch points, gestures, pen support, and simulated pressure), Bitwig Studio is on the forefront of new ways to create music. Overall, the user interface of Bitwig Studio is touch-friendly; in addition there is a dedicated tablet display profile, perfect for any touch screen, or devices such as Microsoft Surface computers.
