How does the 12-month Upgrade Plan work?
All Bitwig Studio (and Bitwig Studio 16-Track) licenses include 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 Upgrade Plan expires, your license will continue to work with the latest version of Bitwig Studio that you received. You can renew your Upgrade Plan at any time to resume getting new updates for another 12 months — or renew your Upgrade Plan ahead of time (extending your expiration date by 12 months) to always be up to date.
How much does a 12-month Upgrade Plan cost?
Login to your user account or visit your local reseller for current prices. 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 3.1 when your plan expires, you will be able to download and use 3.1.1, 3.1.2, etc. Version 3.2 will be unavailable until you renew your Upgrade Plan.
What if my Upgrade Plan has already expired?
You can renew your Upgrade Plan at any time.
How about upgrades from earlier versions of Bitwig Studio?
If you own an earlier version of Bitwig Studio, you can purchase an upgrade license. When you register it in your user account you get access to the latest version of Bitwig Studio. On top of that, you get any new version that comes out in the coming 12 months for free.
I own a Bitwig Studio 16-Track license, do I also have an Upgrade Plan?
Yes, with your Bitwig Studio 16-Track license you get 12 months of free upgrades. Once the Upgrade Plan expires, you can renew it any time. You'll find the Upgrade Plan for 16-Track in our webshop.
