Bitwig today announced Bitwig Studio 3.1, an update for their digital audio workstation that will include wavetable import for the sampler, micro tuning support and much more.
The developers of Bitwig keep their promise with many interesting updates. Active users of the upgrade plan will also be pleased. One of the highlights is the micro-pitch, a new note fx device that allows you to re-tune your note streams in new ways. Fine-tune individual notes, transform scales, shrink/expand octaves… just to say a few of the clever functions of it. Plus, you can load Scala (SCL) files into the micro-pitch devices, or explore the built-in presets.
Another highlight is the wavetable support for the sampler device, which brings wavetable synthesis to Bitwig Studios. Also new grid modules will be included in the update 3.1: pluck, slope up, slope down, follower and transpose. A nice and feature-rich update for Bitwig 3.
