    Here's What Bitwig Say About Bitwig Studio 4.3

    When searching for new sounds, do you focus on the processors? Or is it the generators that make the difference? Bitwig Studio 4.3 is here, bringing space and tone, with a convolution device for real and imagined spaces, a new delay that loves the spotlight, and some downright electric components for our synths.

    This means comping for audio clips, both in the Clip Launcher and the Arranger. A new set of Operators, for changing the chance, recurrence, and more of any note or audio event. Random Spread for any expression point (like per-note pitch, or audio panning) with perfect control. And Native Apple Silicon support on Mac, even allowing Intel and ARM plug-ins to work side-by-side.

    Bitwig Studio is a dynamic software for creating and performing your musical ideas in the studio and on stage.

    Here's a quick overview of what Bitwig Studio is all about:

    • A professional Digital Audio Workstation for Windows, macOS, Apple Silicon and Linux
    • Super-fast workflow for sound design, recording, live performance, and beyond
    • A complete package with 90+ instruments and effects
    • Thousands (and counting) world-class presets, clips, samples and from Bitwig and selected partners
    • Out-of-the-box support for standard audio interfaces and controllers
    • A unique and highly flexible modulation system for unbound creativity
    • Excellent hardware integration

    A short list of what’s new in Bitwig Studio 4:

    • Audio Comping, to browse through and find the perfect takes of your performance
    • Operators, Bitwig's brand new modulators, featuring 4 modes to control audio and MIDI events
    • Expression Spread, with a new, visualised Spread range to any level of expression. Control panning, pitch and more for every note
    • Native on Apple Silicon
    • Import data from Ableton (ALS) and FL Studio (FLP) projects
    • More audio export options: choose from WAV, FLAC, OGG, MP3 and OPUS
    • Content sliding (and gain handles for audio) is available directly at the clip and event-level with visual handles that appear while you work
    • Bitwig is now localised in Chinese, German and Japanese

    And here's what's new in Bitwig Studio 4.3!

    • FX tracks now have sends of their own. And yes, direct feedback routings are available — and clearly labeled. (Achtung!) 
    • ADSR module with added  "bias" out port for a bipolar signal that centers around sustain.
    • Comments can be freely added to tracks, layers, Arranger cue markers, and Launcher scenes — in any language. 
    • Linux installers are now Flatpak files, and Bitwig Studio is supporting PipeWire, a new audio system available on Linux. 

    Bitwig Studio inspires you to take greater control of your music, giving you access to every aspect of your production. Streamline your creative process and quickly evolve your ideas into complete songs, tracks, and compositions. Record and arrange, improvise and perform, or do it all at once. Welcome to the next generation of music creation and performance software.

    New Convolution Device

    Our new device, Convolution, can take any sound anywhere — even places that don't exist. All convolutions imprint sound with an "impulse," and ours comes ready-made with 270 of them, ranging from 12th-century cathedrals and legendary studio effects to more abstract "environments." Using the impulse of a room or hall creates a realistic reverb, but Bitwig's Convolution and content offers so much more.

    You can easily adjust color and tone, or draw your own envelope to reshape the impulse itself. Plus, since we support "true stereo" (four-channel) files as well as loading any audio as an impulse, you can drag and drop anything onto Convolution and see what impossible space you land in.

    Delay+

    Delay+ is Bitwig's latest boutique audio effect. By balancing familiar controls along with a few thoughtful new ones, Delay+ can either add a little character or fully transform your sound as it ping-pongs along. 

    Set the delay in seconds or beats, then nudge each channel a few milliseconds for instant stereo. Pick from five Blur options to go from a lightly animated feedback to a full, blown-out reverb. A Ducking control keeps things under control by quieting your delay cloud when strong signals arrive.

    Bitwig's nested structure allows you to drop our Pitch Shifter, or Flanger+, or any VST plug-in into the feedback loop. So whether you just need a little slapback or a colorful wash of sound, Delay+ has you covered.

    Polymer Overhaul and New The Grid modules

    Polymer and The Grid use the same modules, so when something new comes along, everybody wins. For Bitwig 4.3, some analog-inspired goodies have arrived.

    Two modules are new. Union is an oscillator that plays it straight, blending three waveshapes into one pleasant, drifting output. And for filtering, Low-pass MG honours Mr. Moog by imitating both his classic filter and mix buss.

    But plenty of other features have also arrived. The Low-pass SK filter is now Sallen-Key, with 16 modes on tap. Our Comb filter gained a Damping control for a touch of finesse. ADSR and two other envelopes now have added modes for Digital precision, or Analog simplicity and feel. Plus all filters get a Q Limit to rein in their resonance, and all oscillators have more phase mod range for more brittle, digital sounds. So whether starting a sound in Polymer or growing a world in The Grid, new sounds are at hand.

    As always, a few more new features came along for the ride

    Audio Editing

    The Detail Editor optimizes audio editing by letting you make edits within a clip. This allows you to stretch, split, pitch, pan, copy, reverse, add, move, and rearrange audio as you choose.

    Expressive MIDI Support

    In addition to standard note-editing features and per-note expressions such as velocity, gain, pan, timbre, and pressure, Bitwig Studio features unique tools like quick actions, micro pitch, and sophisticated layered editing, and is a forefront runner in supporting MPE.

    MPE stands for Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression. By supporting the MPE standard, Bitwig Studio is among the first DAWs capable of capturing and utilizing the precise features of the most advanced MIDI controllers on the market today, such as Roli Seaboard and the Linnstrument.

    Time Stretching

    Keep your audio material in time regardless of project tempo using Bitwig Studio's state-of-the-art time stretching. Let Bitwig Studio analyze and automatically stretch your audio, or take full control and use our advanced stretching and editing tools.

    Bitwig Studio comes with 8 different time stretch algorithms to cover all your musical needs, including the renowned Zplane Elastique in four flavors.

    Audio Comping

    Each take is given its own color so from the first swipe of a take lane, the sources are clear. To swap in a different take, just tap it. Then press the up or down arrow to cycle thru the other takes. From the composite lane, move a boundary by clicking, adjust gain by dragging, or fix timing by sliding.

    Since we have a Launcher and an Arranger, comping lives inside the audio clip. So if you are composing in the Launcher, just click to enable comp recording right there. Or just drag clips in either direction with your takes safely inside. Even open the layered editor when multiple comps belong together. Comping works wherever you are, now and later.

    And since all good techniques deserve a new trick, right-click any audio clip to Fold To Takes. If you ask for an eight-bar comp, the entire clip will be spooled into take lanes, and the comping can begin. Or just drag audio in to add a new take lane. The stranger the sources, the newer the result.

    Operators

    Modulation has always been a centerpiece of Bitwig Studio. Modulators have been there all along, putting device parameters into motion. And now with Operators, sequenced note and audio events can become electric too. This leads to clips that go to different possibilities and timelines, either by programming, by performance control, or by destiny.

    Expression Spread, with a touch of Total Control

    Bitwig's engine uniquely allows expression automation for notes and audio. And since randomness was in the air, we brought a visualized Spread range to any expression point. Yes, you can give note velocities randomization, but you could also give each piece of a chord its own panning. Or create a note that starts in tune and then drifts to a random pitch. Or give each slice of an audio clip a slightly randomized gain. We trust you'll find the right use(s) for it.

    With the editor open, all destined random values are visualized when the clip starts. And then again, the new values appear when the next loop cycle begins. When the interface and sound is this tightly connected, you've harnessed the chaos and can just make music.

    You can even cast the dice yourself by clicking the Seed field of any clip. If you like what you hear, that same "random" pattern is now locked in for all Spread parameters — and any events with a Chance Operator. No risk, no problem.

    Native on Apple Silicon - And your VSTs can come 

    When new computers arrive, software must follow. Apple is making their own M1 processors, so now Bitwig Studio runs natively on Apple Silicon.

    Some more good news is that your Intel and ARM VSTs can live alongside each other. Bitwig has always handled plug-ins differently, hosting them separately from the DAW. Because if a plug-in has to crash, it is better that Bitwig keeps playing. And now this means mixing VST architectures as well, and just as safely.

    Each platform is different, and we support three of them (greetings, Linux penguins!). So whether it is Apple Silicon, a full multitouch interface for Windows and Linux, or native CV and MPE support for everyone, Bitwig is the DAW that connects all these technologies as soon as you have them.

    New Languages available

    Bitwig Studio is now localized in Chinese, Japanese, and German. The interface remains the same, but functions, labels, and in-app documentation — including the Interactive Help for our 300+ devices and modules — can be displayed in any of these languages.
