    1. MSEG FAMILY — DRAWING CURVES FOR MODULATION…
    • A multi-segment envelope generator, or MSEG, is a tool for drawing custom envelopes, automation shapes, looping patterns, and more
    • Based on the idea of MSEG, we've created five (5) new devices that share a common way to draw, save, and interchangeably load curves (via the new BWCURVE file format)
    • What every modulator/module in the family shares is a central curve component, which defines the shape of the action and is completely under the control of the user
    • Each curve is simply a series of points arranged on a fixed or free timeline (depending on the device)
    • Five separate devices means each is focused on its particular task, with only the right parameters for that job
    NEW MODULATOR & POLYMER/GRID MODULE: SEGMENTS (ENVELOPE)
    • A freely drawable, segmented envelope generator
    • With all familiar envelope modulator/module controls
    • Four Play Mode options are available:
      • One-shot (⇀) - Plays thru the entire shape (while the voice is alive) at note on
      • Hold () - Uses any one of the curve's points as the hold/sustain level, which is also the release start
      • Looping (⥤) - Uses any two of the curve's points, and loops forwards between them on sustain; the loop end point is also the release start
      • Ping Pong (⇌) - Uses any two of the curve's points, and loops forwards and backwards between them on sustain; the loop end point is also the release start
      • The hold point or loop region & start/end points are shown in the inverse color of the interface; on the modulator, this is blue
      • You can either drag one of these points to another point, or right-click on any point and choose the appropriate option — either Set Hold Point (when in Hold mode), or Set Loop Start / Set Loop End (when in Looping or Ping Pong modes)
    • A set Rate (from 0.2 to 50) with regard to the set Timebase (either Minutes, Seconds, Milliseconds, Bars or other beat-time units, Pitch (of current note) [modulator only], or Hold)
      • Both the Rate and Timebase can be modulated for each note, for example by Velocity (from the Expressions modulator), or any other source
      • This RateTimebase pair defines the primary interval of the whole envelope, which defaults to a setting of 1 bar, and with a shape that ends after one iteration
      • The curve editor is scrollable and shows a time ruler in the primary interval (1, 2… n), with the set number of grid units displaying within each primary interval
      • Clicking and dragging in the ruler area allows for zooming and scrolling, just as with the Arranger
      • Points can be added or dragged to extend the length of the envelope, so taking the default settings and adding a point at the 4 line would extend the shape to be 4 bars long
    • Option to Enabling Smoothing, with Smoothing Time set in milliseconds/seconds
      • Both settings can be automated and modulated, for controlling the sharpness vs. smoothness of each voice, for example by Poly Pressure (from the Expressions modulator), or any other source
      • On the Polymer module version of Segments, both parameters are available in a context menu when right-clicking on the module's background
    • A Bipolar toggle (±) maintains the curve's shape but rescales it, so that the minimum value is -1 and the middle value is now 0 (zero)
    • The modulator version of Segments also has standard envelope modulator options:
      • A Single Trigger option to keep the envelope from retriggerring when overlapping notes are received
      • An Amount parameter controlling output scaling of each voice
    • The Grid module version of Segments also has standard envelope module options:
      • A stereo Gate In port, as well as a pre-cord to Gate on Notes
      • A stereo in and out port for an internal amplifier, under the control of the envelope signal
      • An Affect voice lifetime toggle to allow the module to keep voices active
    NEW MODULATOR & GRID MODULE: CURVES (LFO)
    • A freely drawable, segmented low-frequency oscillator
    • With all familiar LFO modulator/module controls
    • A set Rate (from 0.2 to 50) with regard to the set Timebase (either Hertz, Kilohertz, Bars or other beat-time units, Pitch (of current note) [modulator only], or Hold)
      • Both the Rate and Timebase can be modulated for each note, for example by Velocity (from the Expressions modulator), or any other source
      • This RateTimebase pair defines the speed of the oscillator, which defaults to a setting of 1 Hz
    • Phase parameter allows for full control of the envelope's position, small variations, or anything in between
    • Option to Enabling Smoothing, with Smoothing Time set in milliseconds/seconds
      • Both settings can be automated and modulated, for controlling the sharpness vs. smoothness of each voice, for example by Poly Pressure (from the Expressions modulator), or any other source
    • A Bipolar toggle (±) maintains the curve's shape but rescales it, so that the minimum value is -1 and the middle value is now 0 (zero)
    • The modulator version of Curves also has standard LFO modulator options:
      • Five Trigger Mode options, similar to other LFOs:
        • Free - All voices play freely and never reset
        • Note - Each voice resets to the current Phase when it receives a note
        • Sync - Follows the relative phase (Phase + Global transport position) while transport is playing
        • Grv (Groove) - Follows the groove-relative phase (Phase + Global transport position, including groove) while transport is playing
        • Rnd (Random) - Each voice goes to a random position when it receives a note
      • An Amount parameter controlling output scaling of each voice
    • The Grid module version of Curves also has standard LFO module options:
      • A stereo Retrigger In port, as well as a pre-cord to Retrigger on Notes
      • A stereo Phase In port and input attenuator
      • A stereo Rate In port and input attenuator
      • A Phase Offset (R) control, for adjusting the right channel's phase in relation to the general Phase value
    NEW POLYMER/GRID MODULE: SCRAWL (OSCILLATOR)
    • A freely drawable, segmented oscillator
    • With anti-aliasing on the oscillator, to help make (almost) any shape work
    • With all familiar oscillator module controls
    • All the standard module pitch controls:
      • Key Tracking pre-cord, automatically connecting note pitches to the pitch buss
      • Numerator and Denominator controls, for controlling pitch via ratio
      • A Pitch Offset, for adjustment in semitones
      • A Detune control, for adjustment in Hertz, along with the Stereo Detune toggle for an inverse detuning of the right channel
    • A Retrigger on Notes pre-cord, for reseting the oscillator's phase at note on
    • The Polymer module version of Scrawl also has:
      • Phase Modulation Amount attenuator (range 0 % to 800 %) to allow modulation from the Sub
      • ⬆︎SYNC⬆︎ toggle to enable hard sync from the Sub
    • The Grid module version of Scrawl also has standard oscillator module options:
      • A stereo Retrigger In port
      • A stereo Phase In port, with attenuator (range 0 % to 800 %)
      • A stereo Pitch In port and input attenuator
    NEW GRID MODULE: SLOPES (DATA)
    • A freely drawable, segmented sequencer
    • With all familiar data sequencer module controls, and their common phase-driven approach
    • A stereo Phase In port for controlling playback, along with a Use Device Phase pre-cord
    • A Bipolar toggle (±) maintains the curve's shape but rescales it, so that the minimum value is -1 and the middle value is now 0 (zero)
    • Anti-aliasing toggle enables smoothed playback of the curve
    • Mute when stopped option will force 0 (zero) output when the global transport isn't running
    NEW GRID MODULE: TRANSFER (SHAPER)
    • A freely drawable, segmented waveshaper
    • With familiar shaper module controls and form
    • Anti-aliasing (AA) toggle enables smoothed response of the shaper
    • Modulatable Drive control that goes in both directions (±24 dB), for pushing the incoming signal to interesting parts of the curve
    • A Bipolar toggle (±) maintains the curve's shape but rescales it, so that the minimum value is -1 and the middle value is now 0 (zero)
    • The unipolar mode (when Bipolar is off) has two options:
      • Clip - To truncate signals below zero at the value set there
      • Reflect - To mirror signal below zero negatively, good for processing a bipolar signal symmetrically
    THE CURVE EDITOR
    • Clicking any curve display opens the curve editor in a Pop-out Editor window
    • Seven tools are available:
      • Pointer [1] - For selecting and adjusting points and their curvature, etc.
      • Pencil [2] - For freehand drawing of shapes
      • Step [3] - A shape for creating flat lines within each grid line
      • Half Step [4] - A shape for creating flat lines that spend the first 50% of each step at the level set (the second 50% at 0 [zero])
      • Saw Up [5] - A shape for creating a ramp within each step from 0 (zero) to the level set
      • Saw Down [6] - A shape for creating a ramp within each step from the level set to 0 (zero)
      • Triangle [7] - A shape for creating a ramp within each step from 0 (zero) to the level set, and back to 0 (zero)
      • The numbers shown above represent the key command for switching to that tool while the curve editor is open
    • Set the grid for drawing with the 4 x 4 type control in the bottom left
      • The first number controls the number of horizontal, x (↔︎) divisions on the grid
      • The second number controls the number of vertical, y (↕︎) divisions on the grid
      • The Larger Beat Grid command (default mapping: [.]) also applies to the curve editor with the nearest duplet values
        • With a value of 8, this moves the beat grid to 16, then to 32, etc.
      • The Smaller Beat Grid command (default mapping: [,]) also applies to the curve editor with the nearest duplet values
        • With a value of 8, this moves the beat grid to 4, then to 2, etc.
      • The Next Beat Grid Subdivision command (default mapping: [ALT]+[.]) also applies to the curve editor with the nearest triplet values
        • With a value of 8, this moves the beat grid to 12, then to 24, etc.
      • The Previous Beat Grid Subdivision command (default mapping: [ALT]+[,]) also applies to the curve editor with the nearest triplet values
        • With a value of 8, this moves the beat grid to 6, then to 3, etc.
      • All of these key commands can be used even while the mouse is held down, adjusting the grid while drawing, for example
    • SNAP toggle visually hides the grid lines and disables all snapping with the Pointer tool
      • When SNAP is on, holding [SHIFT] temporarily disables it
      • Even when SNAP is off, all shape drawing tools continue to use the horizontal division to determine their drawing size)
      • The Toggle Snap command (default mapping: ) also applies to the curve editor, and can be used even while the mouse is held

      [*]Several interactions are available within the curve editor:
      • Selecting any point shows both that point's Value and its Curvature (to the next point) in the Inspector Panel
      • To move a segment between two points: hold [CTRL] ([CMD] on Mac) and drag up or down on a segment
      • To bend a segment: hold [ALT] and drag the area between two points up or down
      • To draw inverse curves (like an S-curve) around a point: hold [ALT] and drag up or down on the point
      • To draw identical curves around a point: hold [ALT]+[SHIFT] and drag up or down on the point
      • To move a point as well as all points follow it: hold [CTRL] ([CMD] on Mac) and drag the point
      • Right-clicking within the curve editor offers a menu of Transform options for adjusting the entire curve
      [*]The folder icon at the top left of the window switches to the curve browser for loading other content. The save icon beside it allows saving your current curve, giving it a name, description, category, and any tags you wish to use.

    BWCURVE FILE FORMAT

      • All of these devices save and read BWCURVE files
      • Each file has a category that (by default) reflects which device was used to to make it:
        • Envelope for those saved in Segments
        • Periodic for those saved in Curves or Scrawl
        • Sequence for those saved in Slopes
        • Lookup for those saved in Transfer (or the Keytrack+ modulator)
      • [CTRL]-clicking ([CMD]-clicking on Mac) any curve display opens the curve browser
      • Browsing defaults to the device's file Category, but any BWCURVE file can be loaded by any device (just select Any Category)
      • All BWCURVE files require a point at time zero
      • Phase-driven devices — the oscillators, Curves and Scrawl, as well as the Slopes sequencer — place a matching point at the end of the cycle, connecting the first and last points of the cycle
      • When an envelope curve of free length is loaded into any of the other devices, its length is normalized
      • When a non-envelope curve is loaded into an envelope device, the curve is fit into the first "primary interval" of the envelope (from 0 to 1)
    2. MODULATION ELEVATED — MODULATOR'S ON THE MIXER…

      • Modulators have been available on the device level forever
      • Now tracks and the project level can have modulators as well
      • And whether you are working with the new curve devices or our other data sequencers, you can now work with your modulation data in a resizable Pop-out Editor
    TRACK- AND PROJECT-LEVEL MODULATION

      • From the left edge of the Device Panel, headers now exist for every level from the Project, to any nested Group tracks, down to the current track level
        • If these are not visible, right-click anywhere in the Device Panel and enable Show group headers in Device Panel
      • Each of these headers has a Show Modulators button for opening that level's modulator pane
      • Insert and map modulators as you normally would
      • Available modulation targets for tracks include:
        • All device parameters on that track
        • All available mixer controls (Volume, Pan, Mute, FX send levels, and Crossfade Mode), which can all be mapped in the Mixer Panel (and mostly in the track's Inspector Panel as well)
      • Available modulation targets for group tracks include:
        • All device parameters on that track, and those within any child track
        • All available mixer controls on that track, and those within any child track
      • Available modulation targets at the project level (via the master track) include:
        • All device parameters on any track
        • All available mixer controls on any track
        • All transport controls that are automatable on the master track (Tempo, global Crossfade, the Fill button, and all groove parameters [Groove on/off, Shuffle amount, Shuffle rate, Accent amount, Accent phase, Accent rate), which can be mapped either in the Mixer Panel, inside the Play menu, or from the transport area
      • On any track-level Inspector Panel, the Show Modulation Mappings by Source view (now the third button in the middle) starts with a chooser for setting the Track Modulators Note Source, so you can define where notes that trigger the modulators are coming from
      • This is the same for "normal" tracks, group tracks, and for the project-level, the master track
    POP-OUT EDITORS FOR WORKING YOUR WAY

      • Sometimes your modulation data is as important as your automation, notes, or audio
      • A new Pop-out Editor offers a resizable pane for editing modulation data
      • This is especially nice in the The Grid, giving a clear distinction between patching mode (where all the modules live together in a structure) and data editing mode (in the larger pop-out instead of forcing you to make your data sequencer modules large)
      • The new curve-based devices all have a Pop-out Editor:
        • The three modulators: Segments (Envelope), Curves (LFO), and Keytrack+ (Note-driven)
        • The five modules: Segments (Envelope), Curves (LFO), Scrawl (Oscillator), Slopes (Data), and Transfer (Shaper)
        • These all work in a standard way, as described above
      • Existing data sequencers also have their own custom Pop-out Editors now, available by clicking the small arrow button:
        • The modulator Steps (Sequence) has a smaller default shape (like ParSeq-8), and a Pop-out Editor with its data as well as its Bipolar and Step Count settings, buttons to nudge the visible sequence left or right a step, and functions to Clear and Randomize the entire sequence
        • The Grid module Steps (Data) has the same Pop-out Editor controls, as well as its Interpolation setting
        • The Grid module Gates (Data) has a Pop-out Editor with its data as well as its Step Count setting, buttons to nudge the visible sequence left or right a step, and functions to Flip (invert) and Randomize the entire sequence
        • The Grid module Probabilities (Data) has a Pop-out Editor with its data as well as its Step Count setting, buttons to nudge the visible sequence left or right a step, and functions to set All On (set each step to 100 %), to set All Off (set each step to 0 %), and to Randomize the entire sequence
        • The Grid module Pitches (Data) has a Pop-out Editor with its data as well as its Step Count, Octave Range, and Octave Offset settings, buttons to nudge the visible sequence left or right a step, and and buttons to nudge the entire sequence up or down by a semitone
    3. NEW LAUNCHER GESTURES — PERFORM IN THE MOMENT…

      • A performance is based on the "gestures" available to you
      • With more gestures available, you can go new places
      • And if you can decide how to trigger clips while playing, you can truly play in the moment
      • Good defaults can go along way, and setting them on the project level let's you quickly set the tone for each song
      • Finally, having some track parameters on the mixer can bring a performance alive
    ON RELEASE ACTIONS

      • You have to press a clip (either via computer or controller) to trigger it. So maybe you'd like something to happen when you release the mouse or pad.
      • In addition to a Launch Quantization and Launch Mode setting, each clip also now has a Release Action setting. Options include:
        • Continue - Let the clip play and do nothing
        • Stop - Stops the clip
        • Return - Returns to the previously playing clip/Arrangement
        • Next Action - Trigger the clip's Next Action (where 20+ more options are available)
    NEW LAUNCH MODES

      • A couple additional Play Mode options are now available as well for using different "legato" timing sources:
        • Trigger from Start (previously called from Start) - Plays the clip from its start
        • Legato from Clip (or Start) (previously used for Continue and Continue Quantized) - Starts relative to playing clip's position (or when nothing was playing, from clip start)
        • Legato from Clip (or Project) (new) - Starts relative to playing clip's position (or when nothing was playing, from transport position)
        • Legato from Project (new) - Starts relative to global transport position
      • The various "relative" timings take all factors into account, including various Operators that are cycle-aware (like Recurrence)
    ALT TRIGGERS

      • Instead of programming the one way each clip can play, you can now program two methods for each clip and then choose which to use as you perform
      • The Main action is what happens when normally triggering and releasing each clip or scene
      • The ALT action happens when triggering a clip or scene while:
        • Holding down a controller's Shift button (like on the Novation Launchpad Pro MK3 or Akai APC 40 Mk2, etc.), or
        • Holding down the [ALT] key (when triggering from the computer)
      • So your three settings — Launch Quantization, Launch Mode, and Release Action — are duplicated, with parameters for the Main trigger action and parameters for the ALT trigger
      • The Project Panel has a new first page for all project-specific Settings, which including the following Clip Launcher Defaults:
        • Main Launch Quantization (previously Global Clip Quantize) - 1 bar, so wait for the next bar start
        • Main Launch Mode - Trigger from Start, play the clip from the beginning
        • Main Release Action - Continue, or do nothing on release
        • ALT Launch Quantization - Off, so clip starts immediately
        • ALT Launch Mode - Legato from Clip (or Project), playing "legato" from the previous clip's position
        • ALT Release Action - Return, and jumps back the previous state on release
        • Note that a swap button (⇄) switches all Main and ALT settings (also available via the Swap Normal and Alt Default Clip Launcher Settings command)
      • These project settings use Main as a normal queued trigger and ALT as the legato mode
      • Note that launch and release are distinct actions, so can launch a clip with the Main trigger, hold the pad, and then press controller "shift" to use the ALT trigger release action. And vice versa.
      • Clips default to Use Project Settings for all six of these values, meaning the settings in the Project Panel control every clip out of the box
      • Scenes also have their own bank of Main and ALT settings, which are used when the new Override Launch Settings toggle is on for the scene
    TRACK & PROJECT REMOTES

      • In addition to track- and project-level modulators, there are also track- and project-level remote controls
      • Track/project remotes are configured the same as with devices, just with a larger scope
      • These remotes can be displayed in either Mixer Panel by enabling the Show Track Remotes view toggle
      • The Project Panel Settings page has a section of parameters labeled Remotes & Modulators:
        • Show group headers in Device Panel - toggles whether group track and project-level headers should appear in the Device Panel
          • These headers are where remotes can be viewed/configured, where modulators must be created/mapped, and allow viewing the group or project in the Inspector Panel (including the channel strip controls and meters) by simply clicking on the header
        • Alias preset remotes on tracks - toggles showing preset remotes in the place of track remotes (when no track remotes are present)
        • Track remotes shown in mixer - allows you to show fewer than eight remotes in the mixer
      • Finally, the Project Panel has a floating Project Remotes section at the bottom of the panel:
        • When open, these remotes remain visible on screen no matter what page of the Project Panel you are on
        • This can pair nicely with the Sections page loaded, where you can keep all Launcher Scenes, Arranger Cue Markers, and Project Remotes accessible at once, no matter where you navigate with the rest of the application window
    4. TOMORROW'S MODERN BROWSERS — STREAMLINED, SMARTER, FOCUSED ON SOUND…

      • The browsers in Bitwig Studio have been remade
      • With a growing number of file types, having all results in one list is just better
      • Users browse in different ways so the new browsers support various workflows
      • In summary:
        • Sources provide solid starting points
        • Quick Sources customize your go-to choices for each production tasks
        • Filters help you narrow things down

      • Clicking a source switches to the browsing page for finding results from that source
      • Any source can be dragged into that browser's Quick Sources, giving access to your preferred sources for various contexts
    QUICK SOURCES, FOR GRABBING WHAT YOU WANT IN ANY CONTEXT

      • Different contexts provide both an appropriate default source, and the option to make your own Quick Sources for that context
      • Contexts include:

    FILTERING YOUR RESULTS, AND MORE

      • Filters are available for narrowing your results
      • When appropriate, a Source will have a useful filter open by default
      • Irrelevant filters aren't shown
      • Filter options include:
        • Category [C] - showing the set category for devices, plug-ins, and presets (for example, clicking the Keys sound source will offer the Electric Piano, Organ, and Piano categories)
        • Location [L] - for choosing between My Library, all sound Packages or a particular one, or any of your indexed folders
        • Tags [T] - showing the most common tags in fixed order up, with other most relevant tags below
        • File Kind [F] - for limiting the type of files shown
        • Device [D] - for only seeing presets from one device (such as Chain) or from one device category (think The Grid)
        • Creator [C] - for limiting preset or device results to one or more sound creators
        • File Type [F] - present for File Kind selections that include more than one specific file extension
        • Vendor [V] - for quick sorting of plug-ins by manufacturer
        • Favorites only
        • - when the star up near the Source name is clicked, only results that you have marked as a favorite will be shown
        • Each character shown above represents the key command for switching directly to that filter from a result in the list
        • Pressing [X] clears all current filters
      • For better filing, you can press the [0] number key to add the selected item to your Favorites collection
      • You can also press the [1] thru [9] number keys to assign the selected item to your first nine collections (right-click in either browser to see the key commands and the collection they correspond to)
      • A few more default keyboard navigation notes:
        • When in the search field or in a new browser window, [↓] key jumps into the results list
        • will always jump to the search field
          [*]Pressing [→] when a device is selected enables the special Show [Device] Presets mode, which can be exited with [←]
          [*]The Pop-up Browser is oriented horizontally, so:
          • The [←] and [→] arrow keys move focus between the filter and results sections
          • [CTRL]-[ALT] ([CMD]-[ALT] on Mac) + [←] and [→] move between the available filters
          • [CTRL]-[ALT] ([CMD]-[ALT] on Mac) + [↑] and [↓] move between the Quick Sources
          • [PAGE UP] jumps to the search field
          [*]The side Browser Panel is oriented vertically, so:
          • [PAGE DOWN] and [PAGE UP] move focus between the search field, filter section, and results section
          • [CTRL]-[ALT] ([CMD]-[ALT] on Mac) + [↑] and [↓] move between the available filters
          • [CTRL]-[ALT] ([CMD]-[ALT] on Mac) + [←] and [→] move between the Quick Sources

        [*]There are also two choices for preserving your current browser state:
        • Right-click in the browser and choose Save Snapshot… to save the current source, search term, and filters in an editable form
          • Restore a snapshot by right-clicking in the browser and selecting its name
        • Right-click in the browser and choose Save Smart Collection… to save the search term and filters in an fixed form (limiting your search results and available filter choices to the current selections) as a new source
          • Creating a new smart collection automatically adds it at the end of to your current Quick Sources, showing a magnifying glass icon in the color you selected
    POWER SEARCHING TIPS

      • Searching is now better than ever, so just start typing what you want
      • New and inferred metadata helps:
        • Bitwig devices are now more deeply indexed. For example:
          • Searching for fm will give you various devices that do frequency (or phase) modulation
          • Searching for sync in the modulator browser shows you various devices that have beat-sync options
          • Searching for smooth in a Grid editor (or the side Browser Panel) will return various averagers, envelope followers, and filters
          • Just try things.
        • All sample files are now indexed in new ways:
          • Filenames and parent folder names are searched for common keywords
          • Categories are applied based on common keywords, such as break (category: Drum Loop), ride (category: Cymbal), or sweep (category: Sound FX), etc.
          • Tags are applied when they match known tags in Bitwig Studio
          • Together, this makes searching for samples much closer to presets and plug-ins
        • Preset discovery CLAP plug-ins mean they can also have their presets indexed with tags, creators, etc.
      • Autocomplete suggestions keep you on track:
        • If your search matches a source or relevant filter, a blue autocomplete suggestion will appear, letting you hit [TAB] and jump to that suggestion
        • Suggestions also include searches appropriate to a different source, so just hit [TAB] to accept the suggestion and Bitwig will take you there
        • A couple example cases:
          • When searching in the side Browser Panel for Samples + Clips, typing dru will offer ⇥ Drum Loop for jumping to the Drum Loop category
          • When searching under Samples + Clips, typing ark finds few results in that source so ⇥ Everything is suggested
          • When searching under Everything, typing ark will offer ⇥ Arksun which sets the Creator filter
    NEW FEATURES

      • The Bitwig Studio application is now localized in ¡Spanish! and Korean~^^
        • The language is set from the Dashboard under Settings > User Interface > Language, at the top of that page

    Whats a pre-release? Something like a non public Release Candidate?

    Okay you can guess links to all versions. But why not make it public? why links the try page still to 5.0?

    I'm on latest beta, was active until 5 came out and still getting updates even though I'm not. I cannot get the new packs however, since I haven't paid for another year at this point.

    Bitwig and PreSonus are making it easy to share projects between programs

    BWS.png
    We know that many producers use multiple DAWs, but transferring projects between programs can be time-consuming or complex. That's why we teamed up with PreSonus to create a free, open, DAW-agnostic file format that allows you to save projects in one DAW and open them in another. DAWproject files include all information related to time, tracks and channels, as well as all audio, note and automation data — and even the state of the plug-ins used in projects. That means you never have to bounce your stems to share or transfer a project again; you can save it as a DAWproject file and open it in another program, even if it has different features. DAWproject files are currently supported by Bitwig Studio 5.0.9, and in PreSonus Studio One 6.5. For a full rundown of the specific features that DAWproject supports and more details on how it works, check out our FAQs. The features that DAWproject format supports are listed below, with a comparison to MIDI and AAF for reference. As you'll see, DAWproject files cover a wider range of data relevant to DAWs and DAW-like applications.
