German software manufacturer Bitwig just presented a video of their highly anticipated DAW “Bitwig Studio”. I’m kind of shocked it doesn’t only look like Ableton Live, it also sports many of Live’s distinctive features.
Bitwig Studio is a multi-platform music-creation system for production, performance and DJing, with a focus on flexible editing tools and a super-fast workflow.
While I really love what Bitwig’s doing (an alternative DAW for live music situations) I’m a bit concerned about what Ableton is going to do about it and I’m sure they will bring this up to the table.
Take a look for yourself:
While most parts are clearly cloned, some other features are remarkably innovative like the per-note automation, open multiple documents at the same time to exchange parts or Linux support. On the other hand we don’t know yet what Ableton itself has to offer for it’s due version 9 of Live.
But the most important question is, do we need an Ableton Live clone at all? Well, this will be answered once we get a chance to test-drive Bitwig Studio.
Until then let us know what you think and if you would give Bitwig Studio a chance!
