Free Bitwig Studio Update Adds 8 New Note Effects


Bitwig Studio has received a free update, adding 8 new note effects and more.


Bitwig have announced the release of Bitwig Studio 4.1, the latest version of their increasingly popular DAW.


The innovative DAW’s expanded list of creative MIDI effects now includes randomization, note repeat and humanization


The focus point here is the introduction of 8 new Note FX – Bitwig’s term for MIDI effects which manipulate incoming MIDI data in various ways. The effects range from the functional to the creative, and can be combined together or modulated with Bitwig Modulators to create some unusual results.


Bitwig updated range of Note FX includes some effects that producers will recognise from other DAWs, like Note Repeat and Quantize, Ricochet and some more creatively stimulating options. The Humanize effect applies randomization to timing and velocity to give rhythms a more natural feeling, while Randomize takes this up a notch by randomly modulating any note expression, including pitch.


In addition, other updates includes Color palettes, Direct MIDI Output, Sampler and more. Color palettes can now be applied to tracks, clips and layers, with the option to transform image files into palettes within Bitwig. Track MIDI output is now directly accessible, and Bitwig’s Sampler has been upgraded to feature a Release chain, triggering an instrument of your choice when a note is released.
