Bitwig 2.3 announced: Phase manipulation synth :-)

New update announced: Phase 4 (phase manupilation synth), voice stacking (and modulation) and a few other things.
Bitwig | Announcing Bitwig Studio 2.3

Phase 4 sounds different from the VirtualCZ, I'm happy with that, more variation.

Greate update IMO,
Biggest thing for me is: "We're excited to welcome Zplane Elastique algorithms in four flavors to the party, with full formant control. We extended the functionality and quality of our own Stretch and Stretch HD algorithms, and add two new ones: Slice — slices audio at onsets — and Cyclic — retro stretching inspired by classic cream colored samplers."

+ expanded device view.

I am suprised that Sampler didn't get any treatment, though

Looks great! And improved time-stretching is long overdue. Hope some improvements to Sampler are not too far behind!

Really looking forward to the expanded views, and it will be good to see what the new timestretching sounds like.. And I agree, I really hope they have done some minor improvements in the sampler as well.

The "upgrade plan" was a waste of money for me mostly. Frankly, I should have just stayed at 1.3.6 (or whatever it was) and I knew I should.

Two point upgrades was weak for the money, so it's 2.2.3 for life yo! (or so it seems)

The new Elastique time stretching is great on vocals. Making slight BPM changes is seamless.

you get 2.3 for free... why stick at 2.2.3?

Sorry I took so long.

Yeah, I get cha, BUT what about subsequent updates with like ... bug fixes? Or is the whole 2.3 cycle included?

Wouldn't be the first time I'm wrong.

It is unknown at this point... but you may as well wait until it is known. 2.3 is a very nice update and the Phase-4 synth is great! Also, some older bugs have been fixed too.

I contacted them about it. If I can get bugfix updates through the 2.3 cycle then it's cool. OR, if they have some terrific upgrade price, then it's cool.

But I'm not spending much until they add something I need (like takes)

It works fine the way it is right now. Plus I'm a three headed monster with cubase and reason now as well.

Ok, here was the response:

Quote:
thank you for your e-mail. Yes, you'll be getting Bitwig Studio 2.3. In case we do bug fix updates such as 2.3.1, you'll have access to those as well. As soon as we move to 2.4 you will need to renew your upgrade plan.

Regarding subscriptions: We currently don't offer this yet. We only have a perpetual license model. So you'll be able to use your license and the latest version released during your upgrade plan period, even when your upgrade plan expires (and maybe even a bit longer, in case we release a 2.3.1...).
So, it's as I would expect it to be. In a year or if they offer something I can't live w/o I'll upgrade again.

All's good.
