Bitwig Studio music making software has been updated to version 3.2, packed with important innovations on various fronts of the software, from control to synthesis, through effects and interface tweaks.
Bitwig Studio now has a revamped EQ that incorporates 14 new filters, up to 8 bands, and an adaptive Q option, plus global frequency variation and an optimized color system to identify bands.
Also included is a revamped saturator module intended for a variety of uses, from subtle saturation to waveshaping and distortion, with expanded curve editor and availability in The Grid.
The built-in arpeggiator has been enhanced with new features like pitch control for each step, plus micro-pitch change tracking, pressure per note, and similar parameters on MPE controllers. Added to this are new forms for arpeggiator sequences and an octave behavior control system.
Other new features in the update include new functions for the Instrument, Note Effects, and General Effects selectors, now with voice modes to be activated by different layers to assign independent effects and processes for certain notes and chords.
Note Delay has also been improved, updated Note ADSR, AHDSR, and Sidechain modulators are offered, and several of The Grid modules have been optimized, along with general workflow improvements like local returns for Drum Machine and new mini views for some devices in the mixer.
Bitwig 3.2 is a free download for current DAW users, which works on both Windows and macOS and Linux. It is currently available at a promotional price of $ 299.
