Key Info

With Bitwig Studio Essentials, you have the power to manipulate audio clips and craft your music precisely as you envision.

Powerful editing tools

With Bitwig Studio Essentials, you have the power to manipulate audio clips and craft your music precisely as you envision. The software offers diverse editing options such as onset splitting, repitching with curves, and various scaling and stretching methods. Any tempo changes are seamlessly matched by your audio through sophisticated time-stretching features provided by Bitwig and Zplane.

Bitwig's dynamic notes offer advanced functionality such as micro-pitch, pressure, panning, and more for each individual note. This enables true polyphony from Bitwig's instruments and allows these notes to be sent as MPE or CV signals. Additionally, you can introduce musical logic with Operators, modulating when and how notes play.

Comping, a streamlined workflow for recording and combining the best parts of multiple takes, is another key feature of Bitwig. It works on any audio clip in Bitwig, making it easy to switch between the Arranger and Launcher. You can even drag in long audio to create a new comp, opening up fresh ways to explore old tapes.

Bitwig Studio Essentials' advanced comping capabilities assign unique colours to each take, simplifying your recording management and organization. Its 'Fold To Takes' feature automatically loads the entire clip into takes lanes, encouraging experimentation and discovery of intriguing results. Whether you're a professional musician or an enthusiastic hobbyist, Bitwig Studio Essentials is an indispensable tool for achieving impeccable recordings.

Instruments and effects

Bitwig Studio Essentials offers a range of powerful tools and effects to enhance your music production process. Starting with Polymer, this tool simplifies the process of sound synthesis. You can quickly select an oscillator, a filter, and an envelope generator. Swapping Grid modules within this dedicated synthesizer is swift and easy, allowing users to create quality sounds with minimal controls instantly.

The Sampler in Bitwig Studio is an impressive tool for playing and manipulating audio. It features several playback modes, advanced looping capabilities with crossfades, limitless modulation options, an extensive multisample editor, and more, offering a comprehensive suite for audio sampling.

The Arpeggiator provides individual controls for step velocity, note length, and pitch, including 17 note patterns and three-octave handling modes. With full MPE support and the ability to modulate timing for shifting patterns, holding chords becomes an incredibly dynamic and musical experience.

Lastly, Delay+ is Bitwig's most recent boutique audio effect. By blending traditional controls with innovative new ones, Delay+ can subtly enhance or completely transform your sound as it navigates through a ping-pong pattern.

Experimental modulation

Bitwig Studio Essentials provides an innovative modulation system that is both advanced and flexible, while also being intuitive and genuinely enjoyable to use. Modulators, which are signal generators used to automatically control parameter values, can breathe life into a static sound by introducing movement.

Within Bitwig Studio Essentials, these modulators serve as freely combinable building blocks within every device, offering limitless flexibility. This includes Instruments, Audio Effects, Note Effects, and even VST plug-ins. Each device comes equipped with slots for modulators, prepared to accommodate any modulator you wish to insert.

The variety of modulators in Bitwig Studio Essentials is precise and succinct, with 10 different types available and more being added. The total number of modulators that can be used per device is unlimited, providing a wealth of options for users. From classic and creative variations of LFOs and Envelopes to all kinds of new and unique modulator concepts, Bitwig Studio offers everything you need to explore the dynamic world of sound modulation.

Seamless hardware integration

Blurring the lines between hardware and software, Studio Essentials gives you complete control over the hardware in your studio. Control hardware with MIDI, CC, CV, Gate, Analog and MIDI Clock and MIDI Timecode standards, letting you enjoy a collection of tools to help merge together both worlds and scale up your system easily.

Take your midi production to the next level

Bitwig Studio Essential's advanced MIDI support is designed to meet the demands of ever-evolving MIDI technology. With Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE) capabilities, Bitwig Studio Essentials stands out as one of only a few DAWs capable of capturing every nuance of your performance, including micro pitch and sophisticated layer editing.
