Winter NAMM 2013:

Bitwig have a booth! That in itself is a Big Thing. After their initial flurry of interest surrounding the announcement of their new hybrid DAW which promised so much, things have been a little quiet. This is something they want to remedy, so having a booth means they can show some builds actually working. In this case running on Windows 8, but there is parity between OSX and more importantly Linux.

We had a chat with about the roadmap and progress.

And we got a release date - sort of - its going to be this year, probably Summer.

No dongle because they don't want to hassle users! Yay!

Challenge/response because they don't want to hassle users... yay?

Dongles, at least, don't require you to wait for authorization and are not subject to delays on holidays and weekends when you run out of authorizations. :-(

I've been really interested in this program. Too bad the guy had the enthusiasm of a pot plant and Nick had to drag everything out of him. Not very enlightening imo (though Nick asked some good questions). It would have been much better if he would at least try to convince me why I should consider Bitwig over any other DAW, say ... Live, by addressing it's unique features. (Yes I can read most of that online, but what's the point of a NAMM booth then)

Cmon dude, a little passion about your product please !

I don't agree with lack of passion. You should understand that many SW developers are like that. I was excited about the features mentioned in the video. How clean design they have managed to get to version 1.0. And very interesting stuff planned for 2.0.

I too prefer someone who explains their product with a straight-forward approach, and I think Dom did a fine job. The product itself, however, still seems far more referential than innovative or original.

Seems like they are starting at the point where ableton live has been stopped for a while. Multi user thing seems to be most important and interesting feature so far.
