Netris: General Guyble:
The only things that would made me leave Ableton are the bugs the dev don't seem to care to fix (deactivating automation is the prime example) or the lack of VST3. Which makes me lean more and more to Bitwig.
Obviously Ableton is lacking some important features and also got some bugs, but you know how it is...you gonna switch to another DAW to get 2 more functions and one fixed bug, but you'll get 20 other bugs on top
That's why I've not switched yet
(but 3 or 4 years old buggy that have been reported and acknowledge by the devs is a bit irritating
General Guyble:How's Bitwig? Heard that's buggy as hell, but haven't tried it myself so far
I've not tried it, but from what I've seen in various video, the workflow and the UI is very similar to Ableton and that's what is appealing to me since I love Ableton workflow
I can attest to bitwig. It is a really great DAW,i haven't had any bugs with it, but I am running it in my surface pro 3, so that may make a difference.
As for the workflow, it is really similar to ableton in a lot of ways (I also have ableton and FL studio)
But it also has features similar to cubase and other DAWs.
As for the synth that come with it, they feel kind of lacking in some areas for harder music. But the effects and tools are amazing.
The feature that I like the most about it, is being able to bounce tracks in real time and make hybrid tracks.
I suggest downloading the demo and messing with it, I really like it; even though I do miss some of my effects and features that ableton has.
