Streamlined Workflows

Bitwig Studio 3 features a flexible panel-based user interface. You choose what you want to see based on the task. With multi-display support for up to three displays, you can switch effortlessly between three main layouts: Arrange, Mix and Edit—or see them all at once.

Advanced Editing Options

The Detail Editor optimizes audio editing by letting you make non-destructive edits within a clip. This allows you to stretch, split, pitch, pan, copy, reverse, add, move and rearrange audio as you choose. Edit multiple tracks in the same view, isolate your view to one clip. Or, expand it to see everything in the entire track.

Over 90 Devices Included

Bitwig Studio devices are virtual instruments, audio effects and other tools for crafting signal into sound. The array of included devices can cover all your needs, from subtle to extreme. Bitwig Studio 3 includes instruments and effects such as:

  • Polysynth (subtractive synthesizer): Two flexible oscillators plus drive, waveshaping, feed-back, and a lush filter equals so much more.
  • Drum Machine: Drop in samples or electronic drum synths. Each note is now its own audio chain.
  • Sampler: A versatile instrument for playing and manipulating audio with several playback modes, including granular or wavetable options and more.
  • Amp: A flexible and powerful amp simulator.
  • Phase-4: A four-oscillator phase modulation and phase distortion synthesizer for classic, modern and futuristic sounds.
  • The Grid is an open modular sound design environment that powers a family of new devices in Bitwig Studio 3. It includes a vast library of modules.
  • Bitwig Studio 3’s unique Modulation System features over 30 Modulators (LFOs, envelopes, and other creative tools). These can freely modulate Bitwig devices, VST plug-ins, and hardware, allowing precise control of each parameter.
  • Device Nesting allows devices and plug-ins to be embedded within other devices. This makes complex structures easy to navigate and presets much richer.
