[ The BITWIG Thread ] v3 Coming!


#101

I wanted to bump this post again. Although I ordered the print version, the free Bitwig 8-Track license offer expires on Feb 20 and it takes a very long for print issues to arrive in locations outside the U.K.

Save yourself some heartache and get the digital version through ZINIO and you’ll still get Bitwig 8-Track, just a lot quicker! I did it last night and I’m greatly enjoying both 8-Track and the @Scot_Solida feature article.

It’s going to be very hard not to upgrade to the full version. That Phase-4… Yum!

It’s a timely bump… I picked up the paper copy from the supermarket back in December when i was moving house and had no internet. Only just finding time to download and play with the Bitwig 8-Track but have discovered that the Filesilo is currently down for maintenance… just my luck.


#103

…aaaand my print version arrived today.

:laughing:

Glad the bump helped! I can’t wait to dig in.


#104

Would like to try out Bitwig and 8 track for £5 seems like a good way to do so - but no VSTs? Can’t see myself really digging in, especially with no way to try out OB in it.


#105

You can try out the demo of Bitwig with all features including VST support just with saving and exporting disabled.


#106

You can load two VST plugins in the 8-Track version.


#107

Bitwig supports VSTs. It does not support AUs. Maybe that’s what you’re thinking of.


#108

No saving is also a deal breaker for me when seriously considering switching DAWs. (I’m too cheap to buy a license just to see if I like it.)

Don’t use AUs, just remember someone in this thread saying 8-track didn’t support VSTs.

Thanks, this is probably what I was thinking of. 2 plugins might be enough for me to get a feel for it.


#109

Bitwig 8-Track will let you save. The Bitwig demo will not (I’ve been using the latter on and off for the last week and yes, no saving is a drag).

The person who said Bitwig doesn’t support VSTs is incorrect. As @Scot_Solida clarified, you can use 2.

I personally think 8-Track is a no brainer to try for $4.99 US, but I also understand that the trial version may not appeal to everyone. Then again, it lets you save, so…


#110

I found out I’ve got an old license for Live Lite. Going to try out Ableton and Bitwig head to head and see what software comes out on top.
I agree, for a fiver it’s silly not to at least try it.


#111

I’m coming “from” Live (haven’t used Live in a good five years or so, though). So far the modulators are making me wonder if I will ever go back. Bitwig feels like the playground I thought Live was intended to be.

That being said, I haven’t gotten anywhere near actually recording hardware or putting a song together in Bitwig, so who knows if it’s approaches on those things will ruin it for me.

I hope not. :smiley:

Good luck! 8-Track is still cheaper than a Grabde Latte enema.


#112

Do any of you Bitwig users use MPE? I’m interested in how easy it is to set up an MPE controller with the internal instruments.

I also have a question about mapping something like a Roli Block to MIDI CCs to control external hardware.

Thanks in advance for any insights…

MPE just works.

#115

Who’s going to be first? :smile:


#116

The modules are too big; such a waste of space.


#117

Don’t get me started on the layout and wasted space of the browser.


#118

What are you taking about , you can resize the module like you want , you can hide the browser too.


#119

Didnt have lots of time to play with it but first impression is wow !
You can zoom out or zoom in, looks like its all vector graphic. Its also possible to resize some modules like the sequencer etc.
