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.

Holy crap, Sony made a OS X version.
Now, years back, lets say 10 years, Sound Forge Pro was a decent and pro tool for editing audio on Windows. At that time, it was the best alternative to Wavelab.

Sadly, Sony did stick to the old outdated user-interface and feels strange on OS X.
On top, taken from the demo, it has so many problems with plugins it is almost unusable. It crashes so often I gave up after 15 minutes doodling with it.

My conclusion:
It is far to expensive and there are a lot of better and -much- cheaper alternatives.
I highly recommend Triumph.

Though I do not use this in my DJ sets, I do like this a lot. It has a plethora of great and pro features and very stable.

If you start to DJ and don't want to spend a lot of $ then go for this.

Great free DJ app. Period.
