User Reviews by KVR Members for Bitwig Studio
This looks exciting! MAybe it will be the new king in town?
This does look like something I might buy! I can't wait to see how this program progresses!
Has anyone tried contacted them? I asked them (politely :) ) a few questions about sound quality and stability, no answer after more than a week.. :(
Looks alot like Ableton Live... Interesting.
looks like something that the linux audio production world has been waiting for a long time. Interesting.
still waiting for the Beta. I suggested a few features they should definitely have. Fingers crossed!
Seeing as there is to be a Linux version can anyone confirm Bitwig will support JACK?
I wonder if those who signed up as beta testers and got chosen had to agree to an NDA?
Yes it does support JACK.
Hate to be that negative guy, but this DAW is a beta with a lot of problems for so many people (just read the forums). It has the potential to be the best but with heavy CPU-spikes, random crashes and lost songs and settings it is to stay away from... No need to start another debate, if it works for you, great! Just saying.
I have been pretty vocal about some of the crashes but they are quick to make things right. It has the best workflow I have experienced, very intuitive for me. It's worth sticking with if you want bleeding-edge features. Don't read into forum feedback too much, it is pretty solid overall. Adobe Creative Cloud stuff crashes from time to time too, and they are generally well-regarded as being stable and mature.
No legato clip mode. (http://answers.bitwig.com/questions/271/legato-clip-launch-mode?page=1#7487)
Touch mode is just for show, not for work as it misses a lot of critical functionality. (http://answers.bitwig.com/questions/6493/touch-screen-suggestions-tablet-mode?page=1#6501)
But finally this is a great product, with a lot of cool features comparing to ableton.
Please we need a paint tool in the piano roll of BWS...... Its really important for drum sequencing... I think that's a big missing tool in BWS.... Especially considering hiphop trap producers that are many in this new age...
And I would love some sort of "auto-tune" for audio. I love BWS but when recording certain instruments I have to bounce the track to a file, move it into Logic on another computer, apply appropirat tuning, bounce that down to a new file and import that file into my Bitwig project. Takes a few extra minutes with a USB stick handy, but as I said it would be really great to do everything inside Bitwig.
I am sure you heared that before, but what about playing/singing the part in the desired tune in the first place?
BW2 also has a pitch shifter device added, that may help you with importing material...
I could not make it work in Fedora. I installed the JRE, I activated it as standard Java application, I did everything (apparently) correct. When I call it via terminal or via shortcut, it opens only the splash and nothing else ...
