Bitwig Studio 3.3 Announced and Beta Available
v3.3 is the 14th version of Bitwig Studio. The Polymer is the Bitwig’s 94th device, which includes the instruments, effects, and fancy containers that are part of Bitwig Studio. With Vibrato and Ramp joining the squad, there are now three dozen (that’s 36) modulators for taking control of our devices or VST plug-ins.
Just as real instruments offer expression without distraction, Bitwig Studio 3.3 aims to extend and focus on the musician’s workflow. For professional sound design, a hybrid modular synthesizer. For permanent access to scenes and markers, a new project Sections page. For cleaner editing, free content scaling, and transient-preserving behaviors.
Polymer: Hybrid Modular, Fun and Quick
Polymer starts simple: pick an oscillator, a filter, and an envelope generator. Swapping out Grid modules within a dedicated synthesizer is both fast and quick, helping you craft production-worthy sounds from minimal controls immediately.
Beside the three modules are a streamlined set of support parameters, providing ease of control and playability. And from this deceptively small package, a bouquet of synthesis is available: subtractive, FM/PM, hard sync, PWM, phase distortion, and now wavetable.
Pricing and Availability
The Bitwig Studio 3.3 release is planned for Q4. It is a free upgrade to everyone with an active Upgrade Plan for Bitwig Studio.
