Yes folks, many have waited thinking it would never happen, the dreamers waited for the day when the mythical Bitwig would finally become reality.
Now after many years of development the Bitwig guys have given an actual date when this thing will be released.

"Greetings from the NAMM show!

We are very happy to announce that Bitwig Studio will be released on March 26th, 2014!

We're attending the NAMM show in Anaheim, CA this week, where we’re showing Bitwig Studio in action together with the Nektar Panorama P4, Livid Instruments Base Controller, and the Novation Launchpad. If you happen to be at NAMM, please visit us at booth 5000, Hall C!

Check out the full press release here.
Pricing and availability

As of March 26, 2014, Bitwig Studio will be available both from selected stores worldwide as boxed version, as well as online at www.bitwig.com as download. There will also be a demo version of Bitwig Studio available at the release so that everyone can try it out firsthand!

Box: USD 399.99 / 329 EUR
Download: USD 399 / 299 EUR

Further news on pricing in other territories and currencies will be available closer to the release.

All the best from the Bitwig Team"

I thought there was more likelihood of communism falling in North Korea before this thing ever saw the light of day.

But it's not unreasonable. I mean, I'm happy with S1 (and live) so I'm not frothing, but this is pretty much where I expected it to be.

Live is about 299usd for the "regular" version (I have suite) and it's mostly in competition with that. Might be a tad expensive, but not over the top.

After so many years of development and beta testing I was not expecting anything less...

Definitely something I am not interested in, but I am sure it will be a good option for people just working with MIDI, doing live, etc...

I was also thinking that while there are a lot of very good options for MIDI-oriented producers, we still have very few strong alternatives to PT in the audio industry. But S1 is still young...I am optimist about it...

After looking at the screen shots S1 really has to to ramp up the colours, S1 seems so drab in comparison.

For those who are waiting Bitwig, here is in depth video of Bitwig for NAMM 2014. I'm impressed how this GUI a totally MESS (fusion of Reason and Ableton)! Not worth of trying it IMO. Some nice features, mainly for being MIDI oriented DAW and as Eletronic Music producer I still miss a LOT of MIDI tools (step sequencer, better automation curves, arpeggiators, LFO tools, better piano roll GUI - a la Fruity Loops) and features in Studio One, but for ALL this time I was expecting a better DAW, really...

I think it looks very pretty.
I don't make beep-bip-beep music though. Is it supposed to be also used by recording studios for recording live musicians? Eighteen minutes and I didn't learn much at all about the product.

I'm looking forward to it.

it's about $100 more than I wanted, but still $100 less than expected.

and at the beginning of that video he even states it's currently focused on sound design, so I'm sure the in-depth editing (comping etc) will come later. Hopefully with the modular devices promised in 2.0.

after using Live since vers 4 and being practically evangelical about it from vers 6-7, this is a breath of fresh air.

The modulation system is VERY powerful, it has open scripting for midi controllers, and don't get me started on a proper bounce in place. it's pretty much everything I've wanted Live to have, but that Ableton for some reason have yet to implement.

Not to mention X/Y based racks and feedback effects for delays.

For jamming and sound design, or even live performance, this is looking more and more to be a solid solution for me. It's really only going to come down to CPU usage. I'm sold on the rest.

Edit: for anyone wanting more than that 15min long snooze fest, their youtube page has some quick examples (5mins-ish) of what it's main features are all about.

I'm actually quite excited. Sure, the interface looks somewhat crammed and there might be a learning curve to it. But bringing some things to the table that were Ableton-only so far, I think this might be an interesting DAW. Certainly quite different from StudioOne, but to me that's a good thing. Also personally I don't really care about its price if I find it useful. I mean NI Komplete Ultimate is what, like a grand? Not to mention all the hardware I have in my studio, expenses for software are really almost irrelevant. But I understand this might not be true for everybody and pricing might be crucial for some.
