At the 2013 NAMM Show, we got an update on the state of Bitwig Studio, from Bitwig’s Dominik Wilms.
Bitwig Studio is a new performance-oriented DAW, created by some of the original developers of Ableton Live.
Wilms gave us a quick tour of Bitwig Studio, which is currently in beta testing. While Bitwig Studio features some concepts that will be familiar to users of Ableton Live, it offers many unique features, too. These include:
- a streamlined user interface
- multi-screen support
- an Arranger Clip Launcher
- 64-bit support
- multi-document support and
- an open API for programming controller support.
Bitwig released this teaser video today, demonstrating NI Maschine being used to control Bitwig Studio.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
Bitwig Studio’s open controller scripting API allows you to hack your own functionality for any MIDI controller. Here is a short video showing step sequencing note input into a Bitwig Studio MIDI clip using NI’s Maschine hardware as a controller.
Official release date and pricing info for Bitwig Studio are still to come.
The developers at Bitwig today released this update/sneak preview that covers VST support and plugin crash protection in the upcoming Bitwig Studio.
Official specs, release date and pricing are still to be announced.
For more info on the new DAW, see our previous Bitwig Studio posts.
‘Give it to me! Come on! Ah!” That’s what we expect a lot of readers will be saying after watching this video intro for Bitwig Studio.
Bitwig Studio is a new multi-platform (Linux, Mac & Windows) digital audio workstation for producting, DJing and live performance.
Bitwig Studio was developed by a group of former Ableton employees and has many similarities with Live. The new app promises to leap-frog Ableton Live in several ways, though, including the ability to open multiple documents and multi-monitor support.

Well that didn’t take long.
We just reported on upstart Ableton-killer Bitwig Studio yesterday, and already Hitler’s caught wind of it.
We’ll apologize in advance to anybody that this offends. And, to the rest of you, enjoy!
