Bitwig Comes Into Focus With Clip Launch

New video posted, Beta underway      07/10/13

Bitwig, the looming new DAW on the horizon, if the projected features are to be believed, Bitwig has a lot to live up to.

After the initial flurry of activity and excitement, we all wanted to know when, when when when? These things take time and the ambitious goals are clearly proving a challenge for the development timeline. However, better to get things right where software (or anything else) is concernced - all too often the premature release can damage the product for a long while.

However, after a quiet Summer, there is movement - with a couple of new videos demonstrating Bitwig beta functions.

Indeed, we have taken delivery of a Beta license here and are hoping to give Bitwig a closer look, though we can't say anything about it just yet (NDA and all that).

What makes the package immediately interesting is the integration of standard DAW style linear editing with the Clip based workflow of Ableton's Live.

Also exciting is the fact that Bitwig has parity in development and releases on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux too. This is due to some extremely clever meta compliing technology that the boffins have created which outputs the current version for all platforms.

Additionally, there's an online collaborative element to the software, which many have tried, but few (if any) have managed to pull off with. Though this is planned for a secondary release.

We have no clear release date, but given the frequency of new videos, we can hope that it will be in the forseeable future.

What we do know is that Ableton have announced their own beta program with 9.1, so the competition is hotting up. Will you be trying Bitwig?
