Will Bitwig Studio support:

|AU plugins (OSX)?||Bitwig Studio won't support AU in version 1.0. We will consider supporting AU at a later stage.|
|OSC?||We plan to offer OSC support in the future, however not in version 1.0.|
|ReWire?||There is no ReWire support planned, but if you want to route audio and MIDI between different applications, you might want to take a look at the JACK Audio Connection Kit, which is available for OSX, Win and Linux.|
Will Bitwig Studio offer a Groove/Swing/Shuffle function?
Yes, Groove can be applied to note and audio clips.
Will Bitwig Studio offer mappings for hardware controllers?
When will the collaboration feature become available?
This feature is planned for version 2.0.
Will the Linux version of Bitwig Studio support:
|JACK and ALSA?||We currently support both, but recommend you use JACK.|
|LV2?||We plan to offer LV2 support in the future, however not in version 1.0.|
|LADSPA?||Currently there is no LADSPA support.|
I signed up to be a beta tester long ago, but never got an invite. Why?
We just sent out beta invites to our first group of testers and will be rolling out more invites gradually based on the amount of feedback and bug reports we get. This staged rollout process gives us the time we need to address the most urgent issues and will help us avoid receiving too many duplicate bug reports.
How can I get involved?
Drop us a line anytime with your feedback and your ideas. We're happy to hear from you and try to answer every question we get. (email@example.com)
