Here’s a Bitwig Studio beta demo video. First thing you’ll notice is that its UI is very busy. There are way too many controls. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Bitwig borrows many ideas form Ableton Live. But at least Live looks a lot simpler and UI is not as busy.
I’m still skeptical about supporting 3 operating systems (Linux, Window & OS X). It must be a nightmare for the developers and the support team. All the little differences between OSes. Each OS has its own quirks. I work on cross platform software, each little difference can set you back quite a bit.
But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves, I will try out the beta once it’s ready to see how it actually feels and performs.
