Ableton Link Support

Effortless sync across ecosystems

Since its release, Ableton Link has changed how musicians sync workstations across technologies, and with Bitwig Studio 2.2 we join the network.

Make Bitwig Studio the centerpiece - or cornerstone - of your production and performance setup. This new technology ensures everything is running in time and on the beat.


New Device: Time Shift

Precision timing tool

This device allows for fine-grained time adjustments anywhere in your device chain, useful for getting things in time or as a creative tool in the mixing process.

Audio Rate

Grab any audio signal in your project as a modulation source. The power of true audio rate frequency modulation at your fingertips.


Feed your modulation signals into mathematical formulas to achieve sophisticated and flexible transformations.


Reshape any modulation signal and give an edge to smooth curves with the Quantize modulator.

Sample and Hold

A real classic in the analog synth world, the Sample and Hold modulator lets you introduce chaos and breathe life into your modulation setup - as random or ordered as you like.

On-screen Keyboard Panel

Note input and visualization helper

This input panel, now included in all display profiles, gives you a handy way to play notes directly on your screen, using touch or mouse. It allows for multidimensional polyphonic expression (or MPE) input and doubles as a visualization of note playback.

New display profile

Dual Display (Studio/Touch)

With this new display profile you enjoy the best of both worlds: excellent touch input optimization on one screen, and full feature view on the other.

New Sound Content

Big things coming your way.

Alongside the Bitwig Studio 2.2 launch we’re proud to announce a major sound content update: We’re adding 3+ GB of multi-sampled instruments and presets. Rare Organs and Keys and a Bösendorfer Grand Piano will make keyboardists and lovers of harmony and melody happy, plus legendary 606 drum machine sounds sampled by our friends at Radium. This sound content update is free for all Bitwig Studio license holders with an active upgrade plan, and it will be available in the near future.
