Bitwig 3 brings fully Modular environment with Grid devices



Since its first release Bitwig developers promised a fully modular design of the DAW. With Bitwig 2 they introduced Modulators that allowed modulating almost any parameter of any device whether it is stock Bitwig instrument or effect or VST plugin.

Bitwig 3 brings new devices called Grids that allow design your own instrument or effect in a 100% modular environment with 120 modules and free routing.

The Grid is an open modular environment that powers a family of new devices in Bitwig Studio 3: Mono Grid, Poly Grid and FX Grid. With a vast library of modules and a supersonic workflow, you’ll be creating your own unique sounds immediately, and in high-fidelity. Simply add a Grid device to your project and start patching. It’s fun.

The Grid includes:

  • Fully-modular sound design
  • Fantastic sound quality
  • 120+ modules
  • Any signal, anywhere
  • Lighting-fast workflow
  • 4x-oversampled, stereo signal path

Construct a polyphonic synthesizer from scratch in one session. Create an adaptive audio effect with your signature sound. Experiment with generative drones until you find a new way to perform. Or simply create the undefinable. Patching is effortless, giving full rein to your creativity.
