Much has been made of the simillarities and/or differences between new DAW Bitwig and Ableton Live. Its true, there are many - the clip launcher for starters. But there are many differences too. While its not an entirely fair comparisson - Live is at version 9 now, and Bitwig is V1 and some, its hard not be drawn to the similarities.

One thing that may be a factor is that Bitwig has parity between three platforms - OS X, Windows and Linux - which is a first as far as I know. Trueas a result, Bitwig only supports VSTs and not AU or other platform specific standards - which if you are already a power user, could be an issue.

In this review we take a look at the basic layout and elements of the Bitwig system.

Available now priced at £249.99 / 299.99 EURO/ $399.99

In Part two, we'll be looking at more aspects of the software.
