Bitwig Studio 1.2 Debuts At NAMM 2015

Bitwig_Studio_1.2_GroupTracksAt the 2015 NAMM Show, which starts Thursday in Anaheim, CA, Bitwig is previewing Bitwig Studio 1.2.

Here’s what’s new in Bitwig Studio 1.2:

  • Group Tracks: In the next major update, you can improve the navigation of numerous tracks in every view of your project, while consolidating the signal flow of multiple sources through a single Group Track. The feature introduces a new style of editing in the Arrange View called “Meta Clips.” Meta Clips allow for easy editing of clips from multiple tracks in group track timelines. Group Tracks also expand upon Bitwig Studio’s Multi-out VST functionality, providing a convenient way to setup tracks for multi-timbral VST instruments, and useful functions to organize and consolidate your entire mix.
  • Audition Browser: To accelerate the browsing workflow, all devices in Bitwig Studio 1.2 feature an Audition icon. By clicking Audition, a user’s entire catalog of sound becomes available. Browse, audition, swap and insert anything from presets and samples to full clips of sounds during playback. The Audition Browser can be hidden from view to save screen real estate. Bitwig Studio’s advanced browsing eliminates the boundaries between devices to offer a meta view of all available sounds in one category.
  • Factory Content Update: The update adds three new demo songs, over 500 fully-mapped presets, and optimization of every preset in their Library.
  • Support for High-DPI and Retina Displays: Bitwig Studio 1.2 is now optimized for Macbook Retina and Windows High-DPI displays for a graphical user interface that is sharper than ever before.

Bitwig Studio 1.2 will be a free update for all Bitwig Studio owners. It is expected to be in beta testing in February.
