Bitwig Stu­dio 2.4

Computer Music - - News -

It’s shap­ing up to be a very good year for Bitwig Stu­dio fans, with the se­cond ma­jor up­date of 2018 hav­ing landed. The big news is the “re­born” Sam­pler, which now packs in gran­u­lar and wavetable ca­pa­bil­i­ties, called Tex­tures and Cy­cles modes re­spec­tively. The Mul­ti­sam­ple Ed­i­tor has been sub­stan­tially re­jigged, with freely de­fin­able groups to stream­line multi-zone edit­ing. A new Se­lect pa­ram­e­ter de­ter­mines which sam­ples will be trig­gered. There are mod sources with per­zone amounts; di­rect-from-disk play­back; ping-pong loop­ing; and more.

How about some new de­vices? ParSeq-8 is a “unique” mod­u­la­tion se­quencer that mod­u­lates it­self with each step; Note Counter cre­ates re­peat­ing mod­u­la­tion pat­terns with each new note; and Note FX Layer yields “par­al­lel note ef­fects”. Fur­ther fea­tures in­clude vi­su­al­i­sa­tions of hard­ware con­trollers, scene colouring, and ad­justable track/scene width. Those Bitwig boffins have even added MIDI chan­nel sup­port.

v2.4 is a free up­date for own­ers of Bitwig Stu­dio, which costs €379.
