First of all a big thumb for Bitwig which is the first “professional DAW” hitting the market for linux computers!

As mentioned above it is similar to Ableton Live, which is kind of mashup of DAW and DJ Tool. I guess it is competing to Reason, FL Studio etc… just a nice tool for beat making, sampling, etc.

Anyway I’m looking forward to check it out on my ubuntu notebook soon.

Very cool indeed. Another interesting feature (I believe to be true) is that in runs plug-ins in parallel with itself. The reason being so if a plug-in crashes, your session will still be safe.

It tough digging around for more info. Bitwig is still too new to have a good supply of feature videos/tutorials. I’m sure they’ll be plentiful soon however.

Bitwig was recently released and is getting some interesting attention. Has anyone tried it? If you have, share you opinions and experiences.

I always get excited when a new DAW hits the market!

My workplace is looking for a track similar to Kong by Bonobo. Tempo and groove/feel are the biggest factors. Thanks!

Very cool. Sounds pretty realistic to me!

Taco, I’d never heard of VEPro before but it looks pretty useful. I’ll def check that out more.

Mlamanna, did you run into any compatibility issues with any of your 3rd party plug-ins after switching to X?

I’m not usually one for new years resolutions, but I think this year I could really use one. Toward the end of this year I found myself feeling more and more content, which eventually led to laziness and a lack of drive to work on anything new. So i guess my resolution would be to avoid musical slumps and feeling content. I know there’s way more in store for me if I can get past my metal roadblocks!

I thought the split-screen shots sounded particularly cool. Makes me want to do a piano version :)

This is a great article laying out the pros and cons of switching to a 64-bit DAW (specifically ones without 32-bit support). The biggest concern being plug-in compatibility. Give it a solid read if you’re looking to upgrade :)

Hey FL, nice work with this weeks tracks. You have quite the variety already.

P.S. your “featured items” links doesn’t work. May want to repost it or have a mod delete it :)
