The DAW market is a difficult one to break into. Convincing long-term users to quit their current software in favour of yours is always going to be difficult, and newbies will inevitably be drawn to the best-known applications.
Bitwig Studio, though, seems to have taken a foothold. Given its look and feel, comparisons with Ableton Live are inevitable, but this new kid on the block has got some fresh tricks up its sleeve. The Clip and Arrange views integrate beautifully, and the modulation and automation systems are genuinely innovative.
Bitwig is off to a great start, then: up next, an integrated modular system that be used to create your own devices, and advanced collaboration features.45 Stars
