Bitwig will attend NAMM 2015 from January 22nd – 25th (Booth 4901 in Hall C) and announce the forthcoming update, BITWIG STUDIO 1.2. Following the announcement, Bitwig will offer a sneak preview detailing the all-new features scheduled for the next major update, free for all Bitwig Studio license holders. Additional surprises can be expected on the actual release date of Bitwig Studio 1.2
Consolidate and simplify your mix.
In our next major update you can dramatically improve the navigation of numerous tracks in every view of your project while consolidating the signal flow of multiple sources through a single Group Track. The feature introduces a new style of editing in the Arrange View called “Meta Clips.” Meta Clips allow easy editing of clips from multiple tracks in group track timelines. Group Tracks also expand upon Bitwig Studio’s Multi-out VST functionality, providing a convenient way to setup tracks for multi-timbral VST instruments, and useful functions to organize and consolidate your entire mix.
Browse, Audition, Insert, Swap
You created the part and now you need the proper sound, groove, or melody. To accelerate the browsing workflow, all devices in Bitwig Studio 1.2 feature an Audition icon. By clicking Audition, your entire catalog of sound becomes available. Browse, audition, swap and insert anything from presets and samples to full clips of sounds during playback. Whether or not in use, the Audition Browser can be hidden completely from view to save on precious screen real estate. Bitwig Studio’s advanced browsing eliminates the boundaries between devices to offer a meta view of all available sounds in one category. Searching for the right bass? It doesn’t matter if it’s a Polysynth preset or a sample, you now have the freedom to audition all your content in place, on the fly, to find sounds quickly and to get back to what is most important, making music.

Carlsbad, Calif. (January 15, 2015) – The NAMM Foundation has announced 10 historic musical and sound inventions ranging from 1947 through 2000 will be inducted to its10th annual TECnology Hall of Fame, Saturday, January 24 at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. The awards will be presented by the NAMM MUSEUM of Making Music and hosted by veteran pro-audio journalist George Petersen.
“The inductees for the NAMM TECnology Hall of Fame cover an exceedingly wide range of breakthrough inventions that date back 135 years, to the very roots of audio reproduction,” says George Petersen, NAMM TECnology Hall of Fame chairman. “Interestingly, most of the products selected for this year are still in active use and are even considered classics, which says a lot about the lasting power of these innovations.”
While products must be at least 10 years old to be considered for induction, many entries are still in use, decades after they were first produced, including the Electro-Voice RE20 from the 60s, a mic that has a diverse fan base among broadcasters and studio musicians alike.

Carlsbad, Calif. (January 6, 2015) – Hundreds of artists from nearly every imaginable musical genre prepare to perform on five NAMM Show stages, as the 2015 NAMM Show returns to Anaheim January 22-25. Live music will set the soundtrack for product debuts from more than 5,000 music brands throughout the four-day music industry trade event. Star-studded awards shows, music-making opportunities, and live performances set the stage for a NAMM Show the industry will be talking about for years to come.
“NAMM is a great show to conduct business, but perhaps the soul of NAMM, and what makes it different from its competitors is the music,” said Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. “Seeing musical performances from some of the best artists in the world and having our musical heroes checking out the latest gear next to us in an exhibitor’s booth are the experiences that we’ll be telling everyone all about when we get home.”
Productive days on the show floor flow into evenings spent networking with friends, set to a musical soundtrack playing on the Hilton Lobby Stage, the Marriott Lobby Stage, CenterStage between convention center halls B and C, The Venue Stage presented by Pioneer DJ, and the NAMM GoPro Stage on the Grand Plaza.
