Well designed software
Bitwig Studio is the best alternative to ableton live and has some advantages over it. As it is pretty new and it is a new concept of daw it has also some shortcomings: no midi tracks for use with external midi gear. No support for recycle files. You may argue that it has midi tracks, but no, they are called instrument tracks and are not midi compatible as the developers chosen higher resolution for the timing among other improvements. You have a translator device called hardware instrument which when put on an instrument track produces a midi output. I would prefer to have a midi channel like in ableton live. Bitwig offers loop chopping into different devices or racks just like ableton live except it does not read .rx2 and .rex files. This can be a huge pain if you have a library of chopped loops all saved as .rx2. It's built in devices and synths are pretty nice sounding and the fact that it doesn't crashes when a plugin does is a huge advantage! It is a great piece of software but more for "inside the box" users and less for external hardware fans.
Love it. So fast and easy to use, never crash and is so good looking :)
This is the best DAW I've used. The integrated devices (plugins) are great too! Things I miss is a Match EQ, recording like the one in Logic Pro and better compatibility with the waves plugins.
Cool DAW, still needs some development however
The built-in instruments really amazed me, they sound great. I don't really like the keyboard shortcuts however and the interface can be a bit confusing. MIDI usage still needs a lot of developement and is not what I expected it to be. I still prefer Ableton over Bitwig, but I love to use Bitwig on my other laptop while I'm traveling.
