In­ter­play of au­dio, MIDI, clips and in­stru­ments

Computer Music - - Make Music Now / Bitwig Studio 2 8-Track -

Bitwig Stu­dio pro­vides a lot of flex­i­bil­ity, with var­i­ous means by which to com­pose and ar­range tracks. Like many DAWs, it of­fers a com­bi­na­tion of MIDI and au­dio tracks, sup­port­ing both au­dio and MIDI loops or clips. These can be in­ter­changed, al­low­ing you to treat any au­dio or MIDI re­gion you record as a clip to be used in the Mixer, or ar­ranged in a project’s Scenes. Au­dio and MIDI clips can be dragged into any De­vice that sup­ports sam­ples for fur­ther tweak­ing and trig­ger­ing from a MIDI con­troller or Bitwig’s own in­ter­nal se­quencer. You can then drag the re­sults into some­thing else, cre­at­ing an end­lessly re­cur­sive cre­ative loop, should you de­sire. Each trip to and from the Ar­range page of­fers more op­por­tu­ni­ties for pro­cess­ing, au­to­ma­tion and more. Ob­vi­ously, this al­lows for wildly in­ven­tive mix­ing and match­ing of au­dio, MIDI, in­stru­ments and ar­range­ments. Bitwig Stu­dio 8-Track may limit the num­ber of tracks you can use, but pro­vides vir­tu­ally un­lim­ited ways to use what’s in them.
