Announcing Bitwig Studio 2.1
A month after releasing Bitwig Studio 2 to the world, and in time for our third birthday, we're proud to present the first update.
With Bitwig Studio 2.1, we bring a number of fixes and improvements, along with some great new features and devices.
Beta testing starts now, and the first group of testers have already received their beta licenses. If you own Bitwig Studio 2 and like to participate, you can sign up here*.
Planned release date is end of April, 2017.
MIDI Clock Slave
MIDI clock slave functionality lets you sync up Bitwig Studio 2.1 to software and hardware clocks. You can now let your hardware sequencer control the Bitwig Studio clock and transport, or sync Bitwig Studio to other software, or indeed run two instances of Bitwig Studio in perfect sync.
Inject a bit of virtual analog grit into your sounds with the new Amp device, a remarkable piece of amplifier-simulation technology. The Amp consists of pre and post sections with individual EQs, a drive section with 8 drive types and a cabinet simulation offering advanced cabinet, coloring and mix settings.
New Sound Package: Irrupt Eurorack
Discover “Irrupt Eurorack”, an exciting sound package created by Irrupt, which displays the ease and accessibility of Bitwig Studio’s workflow - and showcases the unbelievable sounds created by Irrupt’s team of mad musical scientists.
Get inspired with modular made sounds including an awesome array of bass and melodic loops, plus 5 unique drum machine kits with modular drum one-shots. All sounds have been created with professional production and performance in mind, just like you’d expect from Irrupt and Bitwig.
The Irrupt Eurorack package will be released with Bitwig Studio 2.1
Update: the two new note effect devices MIDI Channel Filter and MIDI Channel Mapper have been taken out of Bitwig Studio 2.1, we look forward to welcome them back to the family at a later stage.
