A UNIVERSE OF MODULATORS

Introducing A New Modulation Paradigm

The current version of Bitwig Studio already offers one of the industry's most flexible and powerful modulation systems, and with Bitwig Studio 2 we’re taking things even further. We've reworked the entire modulation system and it now offers nearly endless possibilities;
this is a big step towards a fully modular device architecture. 

Each device in Bitwig Studio 2 (internal devices and external plug-ins) have modulation slots where you can load individual modulators. Bitwig Studio 2 comes with 24 brand new modulators; from standard modulators like envelopes and LFOs - to more unique modulator types like Random, Select-4 and Math.

An unlimited number of modulators can be added to a device by simply clicking an empty Modulator slot and choosing a specific Modulator from the pop-up browser. Assign the modulator to any number of parameters, with ease and flexibility. Modulators can also be interconnected for truly dynamic and expressive sound design possibilities.

When using internal Bitwig instruments, many modulators can be set to polyphonic mode - enabling per-voice modulation - something previously only seen in closed systems.

 

 

NEW DEVICES

Because we love devices.

Apart from totally re-conceptualizing the modulation system and introducing an entire new class of Modulator devices, we're also expanding the standard device collection. Here's a list of the new additions, which we hope you’ll love as much as we do.

 

SPECTRUM ANALYZER

This is an essential tool for many producers. Simply put, it gives you a visual representation of the audio material you feed it. The new Spectrum Analyzer allows for a freely selectable secondary input, so you can directly compare the frequency graph of two separate audio sources.

 
 

* DUAL PAN *

With this device you can control panning for individual channels of a stereo signal.

* DC OFFSET *

A utility device to add DC offset to an audio signal, for instance to generate audio signals from modulation.

PHASER

You asked for a phaser, we built a phaser - and a very capable one at that. Happy phasing!

PITCH SHIFTER

This pitch shifter shifts your pitch up or down one octave, with precise fine-tune and grain control.

TREEMONSTER

Organic zero-crossing amplitude controlled ring modulator with a life of its own. That's honestly the most accurate description we can give you.

 
 
 

MULTI-NOTE

This chorder device will generate up to 7 notes based on the note you send into it, with pitch and velocity settings.

 

NOTE LENGTH

This device will transform all notes to a defined length and velocity. In its second mode it can generate a fixed-length note when the key is released.

 

NOTE ECHO

So much more than a standard echo, this seemingly simple device allows you to get creative with note echoes and loops.

 

NOTE LATCH

The Note Latch device will simply hold any note you send into it until it receives the next note - or until you click its stop button.

 

NOTE VELOCITY

With this device you can transform velocity on incoming notes using a curve - or go ahead and use modulators for some dynamic velocity effects.

 

NOTE HARMONIZER

Note harmonizer will transpose your notes in real-time to harmonize with a chord playing on another track.

 

BETTER HARDWARE INTEGRATION

We speak hardware.

We’ve done a lot of work under the hood to revamp MIDI handling in Bitwig Studio; improving sync and note timing. We are also introducing a set of devices that will allow you to seamlessly integrate hardware machines into your workflow via MIDI and CV/Gate.

 
 
 

MIDI CC

This device can be used to send CC data to external hardware or plug-ins. Add it to a HW Instrument device to get instant access to your hardware's parameters.

MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE

As the name implies, this device allows you to control program changes of your hardware or VST plug-ins from Bitwig Studio.

HW CLOCK OUT

Using the HW CV Clock device you can send CV clock to audio outputs, with individual time settings.

* MIDI SONG SELECT *

A device used to send MIDI song select messages to external devices, for instance to change patterns on a drum machine.

HW CV INSTRUMENT

Use this device to send notes as CV and gate to an output on your audio interface, to control analog synths, eurorack modules and other hardware.

HW CV OUT

This is a simple device to send a CV signal to an output on your audio interface.

 
 

MIDI TIMECODE

Bitwig Studio 2 can send out MIDI timecode (MTC). In Settings, you can choose to send out MTC through any connected MIDI device, and configure its rate.

 

* CONTROLLER API IMPROVEMENTS *

We've worked on the open controller API to make it more consistent. A new scripting engine gives better performance, and you now get improved and immediate feedback while scripting.

 

 

DEVICE UPDATES

More creativity, more control.

We’ve made lots of enhancements to our existing devices, improving both sound quality and usability. Several devices now include a spectrum analyzer and dynamic display panels. In many devices, we've re-organized, re-designed and added new features. With Bitwig Studio 2 we’ve also improved visualization of parameters, movement and signal flow. We invite you to explore the device collection for yourself. Read about some of the highlights below.

 

POLYSYNTH UPDATES

Since Bitwig Studio first came out, Polysynth has been our go-to synth for musicians and sound designers. With Bitwig Studio 2, we've expanded our Polysynth's feature set further, by adding several oscillator mix and filter waveshaping modes. These new modes open up new possibilities for sound exploration; adding complex overtones and frequency modulation options to your sound palette.

Furthermore, with improved unison capabilities you can now control the stereo width of the oscillators - and place them individually in the stereo field. We've also equipped Polysynth with a sweepable high-pass filter to quickly get rid of unwanted low frequency content and a feedback loop around the filter and amplifier section.

With the new modulation system there's no need for the three LFOs or expression choosers, you can simply add all the modulators you like.

 

REMOTE CONTROLS

Now every device now has a Remote Controls panel, where you can assign remote control access to any parameter in the device (or nested in the device chain).

Navigate existing pages or freely set up your own, using different control elements (e.g. knobs, buttons, choosers).

Mappings can now be saved with presets or devices, allowing on-the-fly access to your favorite parameters directly from your hardware controller, when browsing through your library or swapping between devices and tracks.

This powerful and flexible new feature refines and improves the Device Mappings and Macro pages from Bitwig Studio 1.

 

DYNAMIC DISPLAYS EVERYWHERE

With the overhaul of our device collection, we've equipped several devices with spectrum analyzers and dynamic display panels.

 

 
 

FADES AND CROSSFADES

Your fast workflow just got a lot faster.

You can now create fades and crossfades for audio clips in the arranger timeline or audio editor. Additionally, you can create fades for audio events inside clips - for truly fast yet flexible editing. Naturally, the curve slopes of all fades can be adjusted.

Easily edit fades by hovering the mouse cursor over clip or event boundaries, and then drag the fade handle when it appears. Crossfades are automatically created when you move clips so they overlap.

In Bitwig Studio 2 you can freely adjust the height of individual tracks in the arranger timeline.

 

 
 

VST3 SUPPORT

We are happy to announce that we now support the VST3 plug-in standard, including per-note expression and sample accurate automation.

 

SMART TOOL SWITCHING AND IMPROVED EDITOR WORKFLOW

With Bitwig Studio 2, we've improved the efficiency of our tools. You can now achieve many standard tasks without having to swap tools: depending on where you click, you can select multiple objects or time segments, edit fades or zoom and scroll.

Furthermore, the arranger and detail editors now have their own tool selector - enabling you to work with separate tools in the two editors.

Oh, and a small nugget for the note editor aficionados: when using the pen tool, right-clicking a note now deletes it. You're welcome.

NOTIFICATIONS

We're introducing a new notification system, showing different types of messages in a clear, streamlined and non-intrusive format.

The notifications system will tell you when the application is scanning plug-ins or files, if there are problems with your project or if there's a new version of Bitwig Studio available for download.

You can select to show or hide different types of notifications.

DASHBOARD

The Dashboard, likely the first new feature you'll bump into, handles many tasks that were previously available only in menus and other windows - such as locating and opening projects, configuring settings, installing packages and accessing help resources. The Dashboard allows a more sophisticated and user-friendly approach, informed by modern software design paradigms.

Furthermore, we’ve consolidated most configuration settings and included them under the Settings tab in the Dashboard.

 

 

NEW MENU SYSTEM

We’ve reworked the menu system extensively. Bitwig Studio 2 now features a context-aware menu system to keep you focused on the task at hand. Depending on your selection, different menus and options will be shown. For instance, when selecting a track, a menu will be shown with all available related actions.

To speed up your workflow even further, you can pin actions so they are always visible in the menu bar.

We’ve also reworked all context menus, to give you quicker access to your favorite commands. All commands are now collected in the menus, and removed from the Inspector to make it less cluttered visually.

 

 

BITWIG STUDIO

Today it’s possible to make music with any DAW. What sets each one apart is workflow, how quickly you can realize your ideas, and the freedom to choose how you produce and perform.

Bitwig Studio is a dynamic software for creation and performance of your musical ideas on stage or in the studio.

Discover the new standard in customized workflow. Bitwig Studio inspires you to take greater control of your music, giving you access to every aspect of your production. Streamline your creative process and quickly evolve your ideas into complete songs, tracks and compositions. Record and arrange, improvise and perform, or do it all at once. Welcome to the next generation of music creation and performance software for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

Bitwig Studio comes loaded with industry-standard to industry-leading features, designed to meet the demands of present day musicians, producers and sound designers.

 

FLEXIBLE USER INTERFACE

Customized workflow to match any style.

Bitwig Studio features a flexible panel based user interface; you have the power to choose what you wish to see depending on task, on up to three monitors.

In Bitwig Studio, use the Clip Launcher alongside your arrangement to draft your song‘s layout on the fly, or use it exclusively as a performance tool.

 

DETAIL EDITOR

Your limitless creative space.

The Detail Editor optimizes audio editing by allowing you to perform non-destructive edits within a clip. This allows you to stretch, split, pitch, pan, copy, reverse, add, move and re-arrange audio as you choose. Edit multiple tracks in the same view, notes using audio as a reference, isolate your view to one clip or expand it to see the everything in the entire track.

 

EXPRESSIVE MIDI SUPPORT

The most expressive DAW in the industry.

Besides standard note editing features, and per note expressions such as Velocity, Gain, Pan, Timbre and Pressure, Bitwig Studio features unique tools like micro pitch and sophisticated layered editing, and is a forefront runner in supporting MPE.

 

MPE stands for Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression. By supporting the MPE standard, Bitwig Studio is among the first DAWs capable of capturing and utilizing the precise features of the most advanced MIDI controllers available on the market today, such as Roli Seaboard and the Linnstrument.

 

 

DEVICE NESTING

A device in a device in a device in a device...

Device Nesting is a powerful feature for sound design with any combination of Bitwig devices and VST plugins. From Container Devices to FX slots, virtually anywhere you imagine another device could go, it probably will. Nesting Devices means that you can place a device in a device in a device... theoretically, this can go on forever. There many cases where this technology is extremely useful. A Container Device is a simple example of nesting. For a more complex and detailed example, check out Cristian Vogel's "Deep Freeze" to see how far the rabbit hole goes.

 
 

UNIFIED MODULATION SYSTEM

Modulation redefined.

Modulating one parameter from the next often means losing hands-on control – until now. Bitwig Studio is hard-coded with a Unified Modulation System, allowing you to easily link any device parameter, including nested internal devices and VST plug-ins, without losing hands-on control. Never before has modulating virtually any parameter between devices been so simple. Nothing is locked, so you can manipulate on the fly to find the perfect range of modulation. Make your devices take on a life of their own, create dynamic relationships between sounds, and hear your music begin to breathe.

 
 

VST PLUG-IN AND HARDWARE SUPPORT

Bitwig Studio connects your eco system.

Bitwig Studio plugs right in to your existing setup. With modern software architecture 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are natively supported, no third-party bridging is necessary to run your favorite plugins side-by-side.
Dedicated Hardware Instrument and Effect devices allow you to control your hardware synthesizers, drum machines and effect racks from within your project.

 

PLUG-IN SANDBOXING

Damage Control.

Never again will a single plugin take down your entire project. The “sandboxing” feature built-in to Bitwig Studio ensures plug-in crashes will not interrupt valuable production time, or your performance on stage. Bitwig Studio protects your workflow while efficiently running your VSTs for non-stop creativity.

 

 

OPEN MULTIPLE PROJECTS

Limited to one idea? Think again.

The bassline from your last session could be the missing piece of your current project. The rhythm section in your latest song carries perfectly over to the next. No need to close anything or dig through complex file structures. With Bitwig Studio, open multiple projects at the same time and drag-and-drop between them.

 

DYNAMIC INSPECTOR

Mission Control

The dynamic Inspector panel is a workflow accelerator. It changes depending on where you are and shifts focus with you, to give you easy access to the tools you need. The Inspector allows you to simultaneously edit multiple notes, Events, Clips or Tracks.

The Histogram is a feature of the Inspector panel that offers a unique way of working with randomization and variation.

GROUP TRACKS

Simplify your mix.

Group Tracks is a tried and true way to quickly manage multiple parts of a mix at once. Grouping similar tracks together allows them to be controlled together as a unit and is a great help in organizing your workspace.

Bitwig Studio allows you to freely route audio and notes, create Groups inside Groups and work on and save grouped content as meta clips.

 

 
 

POP-UP BROWSER

Browse, Audition, Insert, Swap

The Pop-Up Browser makes auditioning and selecting Devices, Presets, VSTs and Samples fast, intuitive and inspiring. With powerful search and filter tools it’s never been easier to locate, or discover the sound you're looking for.

The Pop-Up Browser is nothing less than your own personal content management system.

 

 

TOUCH INTEGRATION

Music at your fingertips.

With a touch screen and the dedicated touch display profile the full power of Bitwig Studio is literally at your fingertips. We’ve developed complete multi-touch functionality to quickly identify gestures for the most unique and intuitive workflow ever: multi-touch support, our unique radial gestures menu, touch keyboard and pen control (Microsoft Surface Pro and Surface Book).

 

OPEN CONTROLLER API

Control scripting with ease.

“Smart controller“ takes on a new meaning in Bitwig Studio. Freely edit existing control scripts direct from the companies that design your controllers, or create your own. Get the most out of your gear with hands-on control of the parameters that mean the most to you, and take full advantage of every pad, knob, button, and key at your fingertips.
