Studio 4 Modulation Heaven
The potential for creative expression is endless. Bitwig studio brings you macro controls for Note Expressions, LFOs, and Envelopes to modulate any device, VST plug-in, or hardware parameter. At the present time, the count is over 30+ modulations with more on the way.
Bitwig studio’s hardware integration is a large part of what makes it so unique. MIDI handling, note timing, and latency compensation are aspects of DAW structure. Other prominent features include MIDI Clock Sync and Ableton LINK. But where Bitwig Studio really stands out is its collection of hardware integration devices. And as you would expect you can also use external hardware for printing audio back into Bitwig.
The Grid in Bitwig Studio 4
Modularity is at the core of Bitwigs Studio. The ‘Grid” in Bitwig Studio 4, is a unique approach to building modulation systems using nodes. To create a signal chain all you have to do is drag your device from the list into the ‘The Grid’ window. All device parameters have input and outputs which can be drawn to direct the signal path of your choice. Just manipulate the parameters of the device, then drag and send these outputs into further device inputs and create the ultimate signal chain. You can create a complex family of devices that all integrate together and you can create a sound-design environment that suits your vision. These signal chains can be as simple or as complex as you like.
Poly Grid and FXGrid
With both a Poly Grid and an FX Grid, the vast library of modules in Bitwig helps you design a workflow that allows you to make unique sounds immediately. With a vast library of modules for both Poly and FX Grids, designing a power workflow of unique sounds is easy. Poly and FX grids work in the same manner however the difference is; The Poly Grid is for designing instruments and the FX Grid is for creating effects chains.
Powerful Editing Tools
What’s more, Bitwig’s detailed audio editor allows you to optimize many functions. These include; stretch, split, pitch, pan, copy, reverse, add, move, and rearrange audio as you choose. Expressive midi support is also included. In addition, to note-editing, as you would expect, Studio 4 features unique tools like quick actions, micro pitch, and sophisticated layered editing. The software includes 8x different time-stretching features keeping your audio in time regardless of the project tempo. Powerful state-of-the-art algorithms analyze your audio which also includes the renowned Zplane Elastique in four flavours.
