Bitwig have just published a video on their YouTube channel demonstrating the use of the NI Maschine as a step sequencer with Bitwig Studio. The description of the video mentions Bitwig’s open controller scripting API as allowing to hack custom user functionality for any MIDI controller.
After announcing the software in January and then starting beta testing a few months ago, Bitwig Studio updates have been few and far between. Therefore, the latest video uploaded on their official YouTube channel, detailing Bitwig VST plugin support and crash protection is quite a bit of news.
The video below details the way in which Bitwig Studio will handle plugins, parameter control and plugin crashes.
