Bitwig Studio Tutorial Pt. 1 – Features Overview and Basic Navigation w/ James Bernard

In the first of a continuing series of video tutorials exploring the exciting features Bitwig Studio, Dubspot’s James Bernard introduces you to the interface and offers some tips for transitioning into Bitwig’s workflow.

Since this is a completely new entry into the DAW market, it is common for producers to be cautious about learning a new program and disrupting their workflow. But after spending some time with Bitwig, you will find yourself getting very comfortable with the new workflow enhancements. Bitwig Studio borrows a few of its workflow methods from popular DAWs like Ableton Live, Apple Logic, and Steinberg Cubase, so it feels very familiar. But, it also adds quite a few new tricks.

In this first of a continuing series of videos by producer, sound designer and Dubspot LA Instructor, James Bernard, you will learn about some key new workflow enhancing features of Bitwig Studio which include key commands for navigating around the three different views of the unified display arrangement and support for multiple display setups (including support for up to 3 displays!) - Chris Petti
