Nektar has announced a cooperative effort with Bitwig, offering a new “slimline” version of Bitwig Studio, Bitwig 8-Track, to all Nektar customers, free of charge.
Nektar Impact and Panorama series keyboard controllers previously have had fairly deep integration with Bitwig Studio, providing the user an experience similar to that of using a dedicated workstation.
Bitwig 8-Track includes the entire collection of Bitwig Studio devices for use on up to eight project tracks with audio or MIDI. And content is also included, providing a selection of presets and sounds hand-picked from the flagship Bitwig Studio Library.
Nektar is offering the Bitwig 8-Track license and download to all Nektar Impact iX, Impact LX and Panorama customers free of change until August 31, 2015. To redeem, Nektar customers need to register their Nektar product and then claim their Bitwig 8-Track license.
