Bitwig Studio Music Production and Performance Software
Using 20 years of expertise, Bitwig Studio has been created by musicians, for musicians, including all the best concepts the Bitwig team could come up with... and then some!
The interface offers fast and efficient workflows and flexible editing, allowing you to record and produce your music without getting frustrated by technology. Bitwig Studio's arranger is a perfect mix of editing power, ease-of-use and flexibility.
The Arranger clip launcher is a non-linear environment that lets you trigger clips in real-time, and audio can be stretched to fit your track instantly - perfect for roughing out ideas or creating music more spontaneously. In addition to traditional track automation, automation can also be recorded and packaged inside clips, both on the clip launcher and the arranger.
The Unified Modulation System allows the use of Macro Controls, Note Expressions, LFOs, and Envelope Followers to modulate any device parameter, including nested internal devices and VST plug-ins. This semi-modular system is simple to use and expands the sound capabilities of a device way beyond the confines of its individual parameters.
Bitwig Studio also comes with a complete complement of editing tools for both audio and MIDI. It's fast to use with advanced layered editing, multiple audio events per clip plus much more. The foundation is a state-of-the-art audio engine under the hood, with full multi-processing support, a unified modulation system, 32/64-bit VST plug-in bridging, and VST plug-in crash protection.
Bitwig Studio offers flexible screensets to take full advantage of your monitor configuration. The user interface has been meticulously crafted to make your music creation experience fun and intuitive. Multiple users can jam on the same document, and everything can be captured in the document's arrangement.
Bitwig has partnered with a host of the best sound designers, providing you with thousands of presets. There are over 50 devices and FX as well as Container devices, Note FX and Modulator devices. With the ability to add your favourite VST effects and instruments, using them alongside the internal devices, there's no stopping where your music could go.
Clavinet, Rhodes and Melody Synth come from Berlin-based acoustic/electronic collective Tolcha, whereas four velocity layers of Wurlitzer funk come from Dr. Power, over five octaves. A warm and realistic acoustic bass sound comes from Manchester, UK artist Sneaky, sampled in the Tolcha studio. Nektar Technology provide the acoustic drums, featuring a large collection that uses many articulations and a variety of sticks.
The Next-Generation DAW
Future updates will include a Network Sync function, allowing multiple users on separate computers to jam without falling out of sync and an online collaboration feature, making it easy for you to share your work with others. This means composing on the same project from different locations, wherever you are in the world.
Nektar Panorama P4 Keyboard Controller
The Nektar Panorama P4 Keyboard and pads are dynamic, sensitive and balanced carefully with a solid feel that allows for complete expression. All this, combined with 93 real-time controls available at any one time, makes Panorama P4 the definitive keyboard controller for Reason DAW Software.
For a Reason user, Panorama is a dream come true. The dedicated communication protocol ties Panorama and Reason tightly together so all you have to do is select the mode and menu you want to control. Panorama does the rest. 3 Reason modes allows you one button press to switch between controlling the Mixer, Device (instrument or effects) and Transport, with the 4th mode, Internal, free to control your ReWired DAW.
The keyboard action uses weights to offset increasing tension, meaning the down movement is as clean as possible an not heavy or fatiguing. The dynamic range of the P4 is much wider than what you experience on most controller keyboards, allowing better control of both low and high velocity values. Monophonic aftertouch, pitch bend and modulation wheels, plus footswitch and expression pedal jacks set you up for performance.
The crystal-clear 3.5" colour display delivers the essential information for each mode or menu, making your workflow fluent and fast. Panorama takes the hard work out of using a controller and makes operations that seem complicated straightforward and simple.
