Bitwig Studio 4 now available with flexible Camping, New Operators and More


Bitwig has announced that Bitwig Studio 4 – a major update to their flagship digital audio workstation – is now available.


Since its launch in 2014, updates to Bitwig Studio DAW have arrived at an impressive rate and useful. Bigwig Studio 4 enables you to explore new musical timelines with flexible camping, Operators, and expression automation.


This means four main things; comping for audio clips in both the Clip Launcher and Arranger; a new set of Operators for changing the chance, recurrence, and more of any note or audio event; Random Spread for any expression point; and, on a practical note, Native Apple Silicon support on Mac, including the facility to run Intel and ARM plugins side-by-side.


The Apple Silicon support, will come as great news for Bitwig fans who have just bought an M1 Mac, as will the flexible plugin support. Because of the way Bitwig Studio hosts its plugins, they are kept separate from the DAW, so you can safely run Intel and ARM VSTs alongside each other. If a plugin does crash, Bitwig Studio should keep running.



Major new features:

Operators in Bitwig Studio 4:


Anti-Loops in Bitwig Studio 4:

There are various other improvements in version 4, as well – localised Chinese, Japanese and German versions and improved import and export options, for example. Intriguingly, you can now import FL Studio (FLP) and Ableton Live (ALS) files, and Auxy projects should work, too.


Bitwig Studio 4 is available now with an intro price of $299, regular price $399.


The upgrade is free for existing users with an active Bigwig Studio Upgrade Plan. Find out more on the Bitwig website.
