Channel audio to anywhere.

A new addition to the suite of advanced routing devices in Bitwig Studio 1.1, the Audio Receiver allows you to easily grab the audio from one track or device to any other in your mix.

For example, send the audio from individual drum pads or simply use the reciever to sum multiple sources found anywhere in your project.


Use one note to play them all.

Use the receiver devices in Bitwig Studio to route notes and audio between tracks. With Note Receiver it is easy to route the note output from one track and feed it to another. One clip can be used to play instruments on individual tracks along with additional Note FX and processing devices. Playing back a different clip instantly affects all tracks that are fed with these notes through the Note Receiver.


Per-note modulation from one track to any other.

Using the Note MOD Device, grab note information from any instrument track, such as velocity, panning, and key, to turn these values into a modulation source for other devices in your mix. Note Receiver can also be used to route note information to VST plug-ins, such as a vocoder, or any other VST with a note input.

  1. Community Controllers

    Unrivaled Controller Integration

    A vast number of controllers are available today catering to every style of performance and production. Musicians, producers, and controller manufacturers alike have wished for one thing: seamless integration with software. Attempts to realize this have come up short through many different and complicated scripting protocols, unnecessary corporate bureaucracies, and competitive boundaries ...until now.

    The entire Bitwig Community has gotten involved, with our library approaching 100 control scripts for the most comprehensive collection of control integration online today. Check out the official offerings from premium manufacturers like Nektar, Livid Instruments, Keith McMillen, Arturia, Novation, and many more... Above all, see the amazing scripts individuals have taken the time to create for complex controllers like Ableton Push and Native Instruments Maschine.

    The Open Controller API is a development from Bitwig that makes the tools for control integration available to anyone, anywhere, at any time. It is now possible to download and modify a manufacturer control script, or simply create and share your own. To support this, we've designed an online resource where individuals from around the world submit and update control scripts each day. The Controller Library is ever-growing, and the 1.1 update results in seamless control integration unlike anything you've experienced before, and this is only the beginning.



  2. True Latency Compensation

    Experience latency compensation that works.

    Adding plug-ins to a track introduces a small amount of latency. Over time, many plugins, and tracks, this latency can cause big problems for your mix. The solution to this problem is called "PDC," or plug-in delay compensation. PDC is a feature many DAWs attempt to offer, but never quite get it right. Bitwig Studio is among the first to get it right. Using the latest technology in software development, Bitwig Studio ensures no matter how many plugins or devices you add to your mix, everything will playback in time with the mix as it was intended.


  1. Advanced VST Multi-Out

    Create a new kind of preset.

    Multi-out VST technology been available for quite some time, but we saw room for improvement. Now it is possible to save your multi-out VSTs with embedded plug-ins and devices. Sidechain one voice off another within the VST or anywhere else in Bitwig Studio. Multi-in VST technology is supported as well, with device slots for any available VST inputs, and saving allowed for using your custom designs in the future. Use a combination of your favorite devices and multi-out VSTs to create highly elaborate routings within a preset which you can recall anytime, in any project, on any computer that uses the same devices with Bitwig Studio.
