Overview

BITWIG Studio 2

The BITWIG Studio 2 is the latest version of the intuitive and flexible music production software. The the new Studio 2 version offers a significant update to the production and performance DAW designed for the electronic and recording musician. Upgrades to the software include a re-conceptualized modulation system with over 25 added modulators, 17 new devices (audio, note and hardware), updated remote control facilities, dynamic displays, and better hardware integration with improved MIDI handling and editor workflows.

Bitwig’s recording environment utilizes an object-based system for editing tracks, clips, virtual instruments, effects, and individual notes. Built-in parameter spectrographs 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 and VST3 plug-ins. Each plug-in is opened as a separate process to prevent Bitwig Studio from crashing in case the VST plug-in crashes. A “Unified Device System” allows any device parameter, nested device, or plug-in to be modulated with macro controls, LFOs, note expressions, and envelope followers, as well as hardware parameters.

Workflow enhancements include multi-monitor support for up to 3 monitors. The 9GB factory content includes 2,000 presets and sounds, such as drum machines (808, 909, percussion), acoustic drums, multi-sampled instruments (Wurlitzer, Rhodes, vibraphone, marimba, acoustic and electric bass), instrument loops, various sound effects, and an Artist Collection Package. A context-based pop-up browser system allows for simple tagging and searching for music content. The software supports many popular MIDI devices out of the box, such as full integration with Nektar’s Panorama and Impact controllers, and also provides an open-source JavaScript API for programming controller functionality.
