An intuitive user interface
Thanks to Bitwig Studio 3’s drag and drop feature, manoeuvring between projects is made simple. Multiple projects can be kept open simultaneously, allowing you to incorporate tracks from one project into another quickly.
Fades and crossfades can be seen and edited in detail in the arranger timeline. This removes the need to search through drop-down menus to apply a fade. The slopes and curves can be edited by both ear and eye by simply dragging the mouse over the intended edit. Crossfades are automatically created when overlapping audio clips, once again streamlining your workflow.
The pop-up browser makes it easy to navigate through devices, presets and samples. Search functions make auditioning and selecting components easy, ensuring no time is wasted searching endless folders.
Get creative with The Grid
The Grid is a modular environment that zooms out on your modular design, allowing you to see and manipulate every little detail. Featuring both FX Grid and Poly Grid Instruments, The Grid allows you to sculpt and shape your own audio effects or modular synth instruments with almost limitless flexibility. Signal flow is indicated simply, ensuring you have full scope to edit, swap and move components to your heart's content. The result of this can be some truly unique sounds.
Simply drag a Grid device into any open project to begin patching over 175 different modules to quickly and easily unlock your creativity. Any of the Bitwig Studio 3 Modulators can be used to control any parameter in The Grid giving you a huge array of dynamic signal manipulation. To create truly unique and awe-inspiring sounds, any device can be patched via stereo to another with common premade connections or interchangeable connections to get you started quickly and easily. A powerful yet potentially daunting program, The Grid has an interactive help screen that describes every parameter and in detail to make sure you never overwhelmed.
Advanced MIDI support
Bitwig Studio 3 has included MPE (Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression) to cope with ever-advancing MIDI devices. This makes it one of only a few DAW’s capable of picking up every nuance of your performance, including features like micro pitch and sophisticated layer editing. Regular features for editing MIDI, like Velocity, Gain, Pan, Timbre, and Pressure, can also be easily manipulated in Bitwig Studio 3.
Hands on control
For those looking to delve deeper into the roots of VST’s, Bitwig Studio 3 lets you freely edit scripts directly from the makers. This provides the ultimate control to change parameters and create a controller tailored to your workflow. Touch screen integration also puts every parameter of Bitwig Studio 3 at your fingertips. Complete multi-touch functionality for all of the DAW’s key features significantly speeds up your workflow.
Integrate with your current setup
Ablteon LINK has improved the workflow of producers since its introduction allowed cross-DAW integration. This allows projects to be shared between musicians and allows creativity to be at the forefront. Bitwig Studio is a very prominent part of the Ableton LINK network, allowing it to seamlessly become part of your production or performance setup.
The hardware integration offered by Bitwig Studio is a big reason why it's so popular. With Bitwig Studio you get a whole array of devices dedicated to controlling your external hardware, either via MIDI and CC or CV, Gate and Clock, sent directly to your audio outputs.
Optimised Bitwig devices
Bitwig have designed a range of devices in-house, optimised to flourish in Bitwig Studio 3. These include virtual instruments, audio effects and other useful tools to create and process sound. These have been designed to utilise the full capabilities of Bitwig Studio 3. They will cover everything you need, from your everyday EQ’s to the more extreme effects.
Integrate VST’s you’re comfortable with
Avoid the nuesance of crashing projects when loading up plugins. The ‘sandboxing’ feature in Bitwig Studio 3 ensures plugin crashes won’t derail the whole project. This becomes extremely important when using your DAW in live performances. Your current VST plug-ins will also work without the need for third-party bridging, meaning you can dive straight into your production process with products you know.
