I see a lot of features in Bitwig Studios Ableton users are asking for along time. Seems to be a serious competitor, which is actually a good thing...

with any luck (if the timing is right)...
we're gonna get the chance to beta test L9 and B.wig.. head to head..

(or...
Ableton will hold L9 beta back until they get a chance to try out the B.wig demo themselves...
and see if it's a real competitor..)

110% agree. Ableton needs a direct competitor so they do not stop innovating at a reasonable price, say in line with other DAW’s. It has been easy for the time being to justify the higher price since technically, they did not have a direct competitor that could do what live does.

With that said, at the rate Ableton is going, I am pretty sure this product will be released before 9.

as excited and curious as I have been about this, I was kinda feeling this same vibe after the first watch.

However I am still curious and excited.

Competitors were saying the same thing to Ableton when they released Live 1.0 :)

This bitwig is so close to Live... It is bot exciting and embarrassing... is there a case of plagiarism here? but I guess you could say the same thing for Cubase, Logic, and their alikes..
Macbook Pro Retina 2015, Live 9 Suite, Push, and a bunch of plug-ins I like :)

I have an iPhone, not an Android phone.

Likewise, I will use Live, not BitWig.

64bit, Dual monitor support, Native Linux Support!

I use Linux for everything but making music. A DAW/Sequencer that rivals Live in Linux would be a really really good thing. But I loves my Lives...come on Ableton make Linux LIVE
