At the 2014 NAMM Show, we got an update on the state of Bitwig Studio, from Bitwig’s Dominik Wilms. He also discusses some of the technologies that underly the new app, and why he thinks that they give it an advantage over current DAWs.
The cross platform DAW (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux) is created by some of the original developers of Ableton Live. It offers deep multi-core and multi-processor support, built-in 32/64-bit bridging, plugin-crash-protection, multi-display support, the ability to open multiple projects at once, 50 included devices, open controller API and more.
Bitwig Studio, long in beta, will launch on March 26th, 2014. It is priced at US $399/299 Euro for the download version. A boxed version will also be available. A free demo version will also be available.
