Hi everyone. I can't run Bitwig. As soon I enter the program, I've got this message: "No Audio Device Selected. You need to choose an Audio Device before using Bitwig Studio"

href="" target="_blank">src="" />

Then I press "Show Audio Settings" and nothing happens.

I've been using FL Studio for ages, and my ASIO4ALL is always detected.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

i got the same problem! any body got a answer?

So, I'm not alone. Just made an account, registered, verified, logged in, installed, logged from the program (message: Could not reach the Bitwig server, after a restart, login worked). Finally the program started and shows just the message: No audio device selected. Clicking on Show audio settings: nothing happens. W10, 64, latest edition Seems a long way to go.....

Hi there,

I'm not at all a windows expert. I have installed bitwig on windows just to try to help.

Have you tried to choose a driver for the device? You can go there pressing the Bitwig Icon and the selecting Settings/Audio.

I have installed ASIO4ALL but also tried Jack and WASAPI. All works for me.

Here is what I get when I select ASIO:

ASIO devices

In ASIO, with ASIO4ALL you can select your device pressing Show Control Panel.

This is what I get selecting WASAPI:


Hope this helps... Actually it is too simple to be the answer to your problems... But who knows...

Best regards,


PS. Please give a feedback about this, just to know I have been useful or not.

Many thanks Fabrizio for you response. As we've all commented, we only have one message on the screen: "No Audio Device Selected. You need to choose an Audio Device before using Bitwig Studio"

Then we can only press "Show Audio Settings" and nothing happens. We can't access that part of the program you show. I've tried to upload a complete image of the message, but I don't have "karma enough" and using THUMBNAIL codes only works in the 'show preview window, but then it dissapears when I send the new comment.

I fixed my Problem now, it seems there is something broken with the 3.1.1 Install File because it works if you first Install an older Bitwig Version like 3.0.3 and then Install the new one over it, i was lucky that i had the old one still on my drive

Please, write this to the developers at We will have to wait until 7 January at least but might she'd a light. Thanks. Fabrizio

Hi, there. I have a piece of news from the Bitwig Support Team. According to them 'This is a rare bug in our latest version, which makes any buttons unresponsive. Probably you'll see several unlabeled buttons in the Bitwig GUI in the background as well'.

They've given me some instructions: 'Could you please send me the file BitwigStudio.log'

As soon as I get home, I'll send them the file.

See you later.
