An awful attempt of creating a DAW. Ableton is what you need.

Some guys at Ableton left the company and thought they could make a better DAW. They tried, added new features, add bugs (a lot), created a messy GUI. Thet thought wrong. Bitwig Studio is an awful attempt for being a DAW that is loaded with bugs, incredible unstable and counter productive to say the least.

Sorry, this Ableton Live clone does not cut the pace. Two days ago we tried to figure everything out in our studio. All attendees agreed, Bitwig is plain trash. We could forgive all the crashes we had because it is still v1 but we never felt at home with it. It does it very best to be better compared to Live but it never does. Instead loving it by using it more, I was hating it all over the place. Good try but it does not deliver. One star is even generous. Just leave it alone and keep using Ableton Live.

Don't like it. It is in fact a Ableton Live ripoff - something Ableton should take to court. One thing I do think is cool: you can have multiple audio file in one clip. I suggest Ableton take a look at this and copy it too. :)

Very much hyped but does not deliver. Incredible poor GUI design (what where they thinking when developing this???) that tries to catch Ableton Live success. Do we really need another DAW if we already have Cubase, Logic and Live? Maybe, but Bitwig is certainly not a competitor in any way. Tried it, ditch it, moved on.

Buggy, incomplete (one example: no AU support?). Hard to believe this has been in development for 4 or 5 years.

I was looking forward to give this a swing. Playing for about 2 days with it for hours but sadly it cannot convince me to switch from Ableton Live. Although it is obvious Bitwig is made by ex-Ableton coders the new approach has many quirks that slow down my process. There are some good ideas thrown in (changing pitches for sample loops is nice) but it just doesn't feel solid. The lack of Max support is incredible disappointing. Max for Live is so powerful and amazing tool I could not live without (and I guess many others will agree). About performance: Did several tests with projects that are about the same for Live and Bitwig (mostly simple projects without effects) and Bitwig uses about 20% more CPU time on my i7 MBP to play it. So there is definitely room for improvement here. Anyhow, Bitwig was very long in development but I guess we still have to wait several point versions and see if they catch up with Ableton Live. For now Ableton Live is so much better and there is no need to switch to Bitwig for me. Maybe next time.
