A team that includes former Ableton developers announced the launch of Bitwig Studio production software.

Bitwig Studio bears some of the hallmarks of Ableton’s Live.


Some of its feature highlights include:

  • Multitrack recording
  • Arranger- and Mixer-based clip launching
  • Generic tracks – audio and MIDI notes can exist on the same track
  • Clip automation
  • Per-note automation – apply pitch variations to individual notes in the piano roll, and edit each note’s panning, timbre and volume curves
  • Simultaneous multitrack editing – edit the contents of multiple tracks together
  • Multiple audio events per clip – chop and edit audio files inside a clip
  • Real-time timestretching
  • “World-class” instruments and effect devices
  • Device nesting – devices can contain other devices and be saved as a preset
  • 32/64-bit VST support
  • Metadata-based browser – add tags and search content by type
  • Open multiple documents – Drag/drop and copy/paste between projects
  • Multi-monitor support


Features slated to arrive after the version 1.0 release are:

  • LAN multi-user jamming – multiple users can jam on the same document and capture everything in its arrangement
  • Multi-user production over the internet – work on the same document from different locations, with everything kept in sync
  • Native modular system – create your own instruments and effects or modify existing ones


More soon. Check out the Bitwig website for the latest and to sign up to be a beta tester. The software is Mac and PC compatible, as well as Linux.
