Bitwig Studio 5

Excellent sequencer but disastrously poorly developed memory and internal memory resources of this DAW. They haven't stopped incorporating modules and effects that simply use up any coherent memory used, unless you have 128GB of RAM, good luck as it will crash within a few tracks. The developers of this company surely test it on computers obtained from NASA. I have spent my money badly here, I regret it very much.

Ive been a music production hobbyist for 25 years, used cubase as my only DAW for 23 years, and I've used a ton of other software from many brands in the VST ecosystem. I have very high standards for stability, performance, and quality in a DAW and I never thought I would find a DAW that could replace cubase, but I am happy to say it's Bitwig!.

I've had Bitwig since just before 5.0 launched(about 2 months), so I began on 4 and just migrated to 5. Everything has been great, the application is rock solid and I love the multithreaded sandboxed plugins!!!! The main application comes with a large trove of goodies such as instruments, interesting MIDI 'devices' and modules, this very cool modular environment called "the Grid", and a load of other stuff that allows for very interesting, efficient, modern project workflow and musical expression.

It took me a few hours to understand my workflow and find my musical space, then just a few more hours of practice to already feel confident that I can do everything I need to do in Bitwig and much more. I am free of steinberg, at last, and I feel like Im trusting my large library of plugins and content with a DAW that is less likely to crash catastrophically and cause me headaches and lost time.

I cant recommend Bitwig 4/5 any more strongly, and so far I've had zero issues with anything Ive plugged into it or thrown at it in any way. The browser can be a little slow sometimes on startup (mine is set to check for library changes on startup). I love this DAW.

Bitwig 5 is a THE daw.

The GRID is insane.

The synth and FX who come with the daw are really good and you can modulate EVERYTHING .

Switched to bitwig after 15 years of Ableton.
I was tired of all the bugs and crash in ableton and also the needed features not being delivered so i've made the choice to switch to a daw that looked the most advanced.
Switching to bitwig was a breeze it took me more or less 13 hours total to get most of the features absorbed.
A month with it 1-2h a day i was starting to build muscle memory.
This daw is super powerful. The modular are so powerful that i've sold all my eurorack gear because ive found a way better workflow in full bitwig.

Yeah the DAW has flaws but they are updating it and delivering and working on a solid base. While ableton has lots of dead code and is buggy as fuck.

Even if Bitwig doesnt have all the features you want its the best bet long term because they are updating it..
While ableton actually dont deliver great updates its just FX and synths..

It will take a while to build up the same memory i did in thousands of hours in ableton but i've already made quiet amazing progress and interesting sounding music.

The best daw, I can't live without it, it gives you freedom and imagination, whether it's audio editing or synth modulation, it has a silky operation flow.

Yes.

Switching from Ableton everything made sense and was intuitive. Workflow is much smoother for me.

I dont use The Grid so i cant attest to that.

+ The browser is Godly making it very easy to have everything organized (Specifically the 5.0 beta is awesome for organizing).

+ Stability. Never had Bitwig crash on official releases. Plugin Sandboxing is next level.

+ CLAP integration.

+ Modulate everything.

+ Audio Comping is very easy.

Some requests i have for the devs.

- MIDI Capture / Comping (I'm not that great of a keyboard player).

- A Single button for Low latency mode.

- Better Piano Roll functionality (Scales, etc.).

- I really miss a Slicer (Ableton Simpler) device.

Unbelievably slick, smooth and intuitive. Everything is so well thought out, it's a joy to use.
