I should be able to download a demo/trial which installs all by itself, no stupid web site registration BS, to try it. Too bad it looked interesting...
I had the same experience back in December. It was a mess, so I uninstalled their demo software which came bundled with a MIDI keyboard controller I had just bought.

Furthermore, though, I don't "get" Bitwig. The software seems to get great reviews by people, but I have watched their own demo videos on their site, and look over their web pages, and to be 100% honest, the software looks like digital vomit.

It's supposed to be a DAW??? Not in my view. (I come from Cakewalk Sonar experience).

Then their upgraded versions have a bunch of new features for electronic music making people, that I could not make sense out of.

DISCLAIMER: I'm a composer, so I look at music and the tools to achieve music differently than the generation of the past 20 years.
