A new Bitwig Studio license (or upgrade) includes a 12-month upgrade plan. This means that any new version released within 12 months of your registration will be available to you, free of charge.

When your initial upgrade plan expires, your license of Bitwig Studio will continue to work; you just won't receive new releases of the program for free. You can renew your upgrade plan at any time.

How much does a 12-month upgrade plan cost?
159 EUR / 169 USD*. The upgrade plan includes all program updates released during the time period.

Can I continue using the software after my upgrade plan expires?
Yes, you can. This is not a subscription; you own a perpetual license. The upgrade plan is only required for access to the latest release.

Will I get bug fix updates after my upgrade plan has expired?
Yes, all minor updates will be available to you until the next major update. So if you are on version 2.3.1 when your plan expires, you will be able to download and use 2.3.2, 2.3.3, etc. But version 2.4 will be unavailable until you renew your upgrade plan.

What if my upgrade plan has already expired?
You can renew your license at any time.
