New Devices & Improvements
In addition to the improved sound content, BitWig Studio 2 also includes a range of new devices such as the Spectrum Analyzer.

A range of new devices are also included such as: Dual Pan, DC Offset, Phaser, Pitch Shifter, Treemonster, Multi-Note, Note Length, Note Echo, Note Latch, Note Velocity, Note Harmonizer and more. Bitwig Studio 2 is also configured for better hardware integration, allowing you to seamlessly integrate your favourite hardware machines via MIDI and CV/Gate. A range of devices has also been updated such as the Polysynth that boasts several oscillator mixes, and filter waveshaping modes. Each device now features a Remote Control pan, where you can assign remote control access to any parameters, allowing you to perform in-depth edits to each of your devices.
The Bitwig Studio 2 features a flexible panel based user interface, allowing you to customise the way you work to suit your own style. The interface allows you to choose what you wish, depending on what you require. The Clip Launcher within Bitwig studio 2 works alongside your arrangement window, allowing you to draft your song’s layout without actually affecting the final arrangement. This is great for testing out ideas, or organising live performances without affecting your keystone arrangement. The highly detailed editor window optimises your workflow and audio editing capabilities, allowing you to make non-destructive edits within a clip. The Detail Editor allow you to stretch, split, pitch, pan, copy, reverse, add move and re-arrange audio as you see fit. Multiple tracks can also be editing within the same view as well as notes using audio as a reference. The highly intuitive layout and ergonomic tools, make creating and playing more straight-forward than ever before. The Dashboard is also a new addition, and one of the first new features you’ll see. Featuring an intuitive layout for scanning through projects, settings and more.
Flexible Audio Options
As well as delivering extensive MIDI support for MPE, Bitwig Studio 2 also includes improvements to the arrangement window such as the ability to create fades and crossfades for audio clips directly in the arranger timeline or audio editor. This allows you to easily transition between sounds and create tension within songs. Bitwig have also added VST3 support, including per-note expression and sample accurate automation. The Menu system has also seen a revamp, focusing on a more context-aware menu system to speed up your workflow.
