The Bitwig Studio Music Creation System for Mac, Windows, and Linux is a production and performance DAW designed for electronic and recording musicians. The software features an intuitive layout designed to optimize and accelerate artist workflows within a multi-track recording environment. It is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
The recording environment utilizes an object based system for editing tracks, clips, virtual instruments, effects, and individual notes. Built-in parameter histograms provide visual feedback of how setting changes influence parameters such as gain, velocity, panorama and more. In addition to the traditional linear multi-track recording view, the software offers an arranger clip launcher for experimenting with non-linear looping while producing and a mixer clip launcher view for live performance.
The program supports audio tracks with time stretching and transient detection, instrument tracks with per note micro-pitch control, and hybrid tracks that can accept both audio and MIDI instrument information. This enables bouncing note clips to audio in place and slicing audio to send to a sampler or drum machine. Multiple tracks can be edited simultaneously using layered editing, and automation can be applied at both the clip and track level. A suite of virtual instruments is included, as well as full support for 32/64-bit VST plug-ins. VST plug-ins are opened as a separate process to prevent Bitwig Studio from crashing in case the VST plug-in crashes. Any device parameter, nested device, or plug-in can be modulated with macro controls, LFOs, note expressions, and envelope followers.
