Bitwig Studio v5.1.8 WIN macOS LINUX-coolgirl69 screenshot

Bitwig Studio is the single solution for realizing any musical idea across every stage of production with Powerful Editing Tools, Expressive MIDI Support, Instruments & Effects.

Bitwig Studio 5 is OUT NOW and it introduces five new MSEGs
Developing this family of modulators and modules led to a major upgrade for our entire modulation system. In version 5, modulators can do more, like control track- and project-level parameters and expand into pop-out windows. We also created new ways to perform live with our software, and overhauled the browsers to make it easy to find what you need.

Browse Better
The browser improvements are more than just a fresh coat of paint. Now, search results for plug-ins, presets, and wavetables (etc. etc.) all live in one place. The updated browsers also provide better ways to find our devices, customizable shortcuts, and a more visual way to browse your content.

Modulation Heaven
The modulation system in Bitwig Studio allows you to use Macro controls, Note Expressions, LFOs, and Envelopes to modulate any device, VST plug-in, or hardware parameter. With 30+ modulators (and counting) the potential for creative expression is endless. Bitwig Studio enables microtuning along with a world of other ideas. Since the arrival of the Micro-pitch device, each update to Bitwig Studio has included more presets for it.

Hardware Integration
Hardware integration is a large part of what makes Bitwig Studio unique. MIDI handling, note timing, and latency compensation are aspects of this. Other prominent features include MIDI Clock Sync and Ableton LINK. But where Bitwig Studio really stands out is our collection of hardware integration devices.

Enter The Grid
The Grid is a sound designer's dream. It can be a synth, an audio effect, or most things you can imagine. It's a modular sound design environment, open for you to build your own creations from scratch.

Audio That Works For You
Audio clips are your musical blocks, and edits can be made within them. Split at onsets, repitch with curves, or scale and stretch in various ways. And when the tempo changes, your audio will match it, courtesy of time-stretching options from us and Zplane.

Notes That Do More
Our notes are dynamic, allowing micro-pitch, pressure, panning, and more for each individual note. So get true polyphony from Bitwig's instruments, or send these notes as MPE or CV signals. Or even add some musical logic with Operators, modulating when and how notes play.

Audio Comping, Anywhere
Comping is a clean workflow for recording and then combining the best parts of many takes. This works on any audio clip in Bitwig, so move freely between the Arranger and Launcher. Even drag in long audio to “fold” a new comp, exploring old tapes in a new way.

Instruments & Effects
With over 90 different instruments, audio and note FX, container devices, and signal routers you can translate any idea into music.

Sampler, Resampled
Meet Bitwig Studio's Sampler, featuring several playback modes, dynamic note-based modulations, and a powerful multisample editor.

Changes in Bitwig Studio 5.1.8 [released 17 April 2024]:

Fixed cases where the engine could sometimes get stuck loading a plug-in (if the sandbox crashed at a very early point) [35268]
Clock Divide (Logic) Grid module: Reset in port was not being respected (a regression) [35524]
Recording Launcher into Arranger ("global record") could produce slightly wrong automation in some cases [35457, 35580]
Editing Launcher clip automation while it is being recorded to the Arranger was recording the wrong automation, and sometimes deleting points that have already been recorded [35586]
Automation was displayed incorrectly in the Automation Editor Panel (in Clip mode) after recording a Launcher clip with automation to the Arranger [35585]
Automation Editor Panel in Clip mode was sometimes displaying as empty when selecting an Arranger clip
Recording a discrete parameter from the clip Launcher with a point at the loop end would cause an infinitely thin automation spike to be recorded [35583]
Realtime Bounce and Export functions always process every single track, so you can hear them [35523]
Double quotes (") in comments or project metadata no longer break MP3 exports [35421]
VST3: Fixed a memory leak in message handling [LSP #383]
Linux: Corrected bad plug-in window hints

Based on FLARE`s crack!!!

I always feel inclined to try Bitwig since it has a lot of exclusive features lately. This is my chance I guess. Thanks to everyone involved in bringing us this.
If you just keep playing, one day you'll have mastered the game.

I have been a legitimate user for 4 years and in my opinion Bitwig is the most flexible DAW currently available.
  Member 16.11.2013 1 26
I use both Live and Bitwig and for me bitwig is better when I want to map lfo or adsr to knob or fader to give a life on intrumental track for example.
Bitwig is under rated I think !!!!
  Member 5.07.2018 81
i am with abl12 & m4l - i will try btwg. but i love M4L 4 being an open platform ...
world peace now.
  Member 10.10.2023 4
Bitwig is an open platform as well. Users share their GRID patches.
  Member 20.11.2023 48
I like it because it has abletons features with better sequencer, browser , etc. Many improvements but specially the browser is deal breaker for me on ableton

can't get the program to load after patching, just endless crashes once the orange logo screen is visible.
  Resident 25.05.2020 5 272
Same. Windows 10. I wonder if there is anything checked from previous installs. I tried using HiBit Uninstaller, but still crashes after the logo screen.

Doesn't crash if you use the original bitwig.jar, but you get the login screen, as expected
  Member 24.11.2014 16
Crashing for me too.

"Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
  Member 5.07.2023 94
damn ... and I was so happy at first but "coolgirl69" +crash reports makes one suspicious
  Member 2.01.2017 17
Unfortunately, it doesn't run on Windows 10 for me.
  Resident 6.03.2018 806
Crashing here on Windows 10 as well. Come home, FLARE. Your country needs you!

I'd copied the authorization file over to the bin folder, and when I started it up with the original bitwig.jar in place, I got a message telling me that Bitwig had changed the authorization file format and I needed to log in to my account and get a new one.

If I had such an account, I wouldn't be messing with this crack, would I?
  Resident 25.05.2020 5 272
Did the 5.0.4 from Flare continue to work for you all? Because after a while it started crashing the way this does, for me
  Resident 6.03.2018 806
Still working for me but it's not my primary DAW. Perhaps it happens after a certain number of hours of use?
  Member 12.05.2022 8
5.0.4 still works fine for me. I've used it since the day of its release by Flare. Main DAW. Used almost every day. Windows 10.
  Member 11.01.2022 22
5.0.4 works just fine for me (macos, intel, sonoma) it has some bugs but pretty usable

installed it with no extra steps, no little snitch and things like that
  Member 15.03.2021 37
Much appreciated though it begs the question. Who is coolgirl?
  Member 3.11.2021 11
Has anyone actually got this working ??...not seen it elsewhere - does it crash the 5.0.4 version after uninstall??...MTIA
  Member 29.10.2020 12
on mac sonoma 14.4.1 did not work, when starting it with the terminal and look what happens it through these:
  Member 26.08.2022 85
Linux version works ( Nobara Linux [Fedora39] )
t.me/soundhustlers | The Hustlers Hell board re-united !
  Member 29.10.2020 12
what version of Java or jdk you are running, perhaps it's crashing coz he compiled it with old version of java
  Resident 7.03.2014 2 534
Doesn't matters, Bitwig has his own in-build Java Runtime!
  Member 31.01.2020 18
After replacing the original jar-file with the cracked one, the program won't start at all. Tried it as admin too (Windows 11). The orange logo screen dissapears within seconds and then nothing ...
  Member 22.02.2021 87
I am on windows 11 it's not working just splash screen and then nothing at all ? Wondering what you did differently?
  Member 18.01.2020 22 79
intel Mac, macOS 13.6.6, Live 12.0.2-Bitwig 5.1.8 crashed
  Resident 17.02.2014 8 887
I don't understand (I'm just saying) people who think they can make audio stuff work by upgrading everything with the latest versions. You may just be deluded consumers, and then at this point I ask myself, if you don't have enough money to buy the original software, then why do you buy the latest and most expensive Apple machines? I mean, you also expect to find properly functioning cracks of the latest software versions to be compatible with the new OS of your new machines. Do you know what the common truth of things is in the real world? It's a funny thing, isn't it? It's that, whoever who buy professional audio systems and invest a lot of money, rarely update their operating systems. They tend to be a bit sceptical even about individual UPDs of the various plugins and virtual instruments. And this typical attitude is also held by producers, the serious ones.
I just want to be clear that I’m not trying to be controversial or offensive here. I’m just trying to get people to think about what’s going on in the world and how we can make things better.

I think you're overthinking things(and not thinking at the same time). The person you responded to is just reporting crashing of a release.

Maybe they do plan on buying it but want to try out the fully featured version first? They also arent using the latest mac OS. So, unsure where you're getting that from. They are also running an intel mac, so its definitely not a newer mac either.

You're assuming an awful lot about the person you're responding to in this post, and most of your assumptions are incorrect.
  Resident 17.02.2014 8 887
Sure, I wanted to share that thought so badly that I ended up taking a cue from the wrong user's comment. Hahaha
Anyway, I reiterate that my intention is pure reflection, certainly not to question the crash report. Ok, I'll start a thread on the sister site ....
