Last month, I visited the dancefair at Utrecht to get a bit of a grasp of what’s going on in the industry. It was a bit overwhelming. Apparently there’s many ‘onion layers‘ behind any artist :). Labels, promoters, laws … .
But, I was especially there to get a feeling for hardware and software. Eventually I decided to go for Bitwig studio as the DAW to start with. I also bought a little midi controller that integrates nicely with it: Nektar Impact LX25+. But a week later, I discovered that TouchOSC works with Bitwig. And even better: Open Stage Control. Open Stage Control is such a nice software project. Open source, web based, running on all major operating systems. It kept me hooked for a few weeks as I designed my own template. I’m pretty happy with the result. It’s available for free of course, check out the video below for more information.
