As they say, it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings – but their latest newsletter says that they are wrapping up the last phase of beta testing, and that details on pricing and availability will be announced at the 2014 NAMM Show.
Here is their announcement:
Greetings from the Bitwig Headquarters!
We hope you’ve had a sensational 2013 and would like to take the opportunity to wish you Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
We’re currently approaching the last beta phase stages for our upcoming Bitwig Studio and want to send out a big thank you to all who helped with beta testing, sent in wishes and suggestions, or otherwise helped to improve and shape what we’re working on.
It has been amazing to see so many people from all parts of the world and so many different walks of life contributing to bringing a new music-creation tool to life. We couldn’t be more thankful for the sheer amount of anticipation and interest we have experienced in the past 12 months! That said, our thanks also go out to those who have silently kept their fingers crossed for us while eagerly awaiting the Bitwig Studio 1.0 release.
If you have been following our project for some time now, you might already know that we originally planned to ship Bitwig Studio before the end of this year. Alas, we won’t make it and would like to apologize for having to shift this time frame now to the beginning of 2014.
However, the wait is nearly over: We will kick it up a notch again after the holidays and are looking forward to attending NAMM in January, where we will announce the upcoming release date and pricing information for Bitwig Studio 1.0!
We hope you’ll enjoy the upcoming holidays and wish you a happy, prosperous, and creative 2014!
Your Bitwig Team
