i bought bitwig soon after it's release with much anticaption. the beta worked ok and have very little problems. after purchasing the program, it's been problem after problem. i'm using windows 7 with a realtek soundcard.

first problem: ever since i paid to buy the program, it has erases my projects and any saved info when i restart my computer. i contacted support 3 times about this and all the only info i got from them was they thought "it's a bug or a problem with windows settings". thanks for the help

second problem: original i was only able to force wasapi audio system to work in preferences to get sound to work with bitwig. using asio4all and every other soundcard refuses to work in anyway. now nothing works,which was because i updated the program. the 1.08 update does work, nor does anything else i try to do to get around the problem.

a 500$ brick, stick with what daw your using. this is gonna take a couple years to work out!

ASIO4ALL might work or not, depending on the device you use, as it is only a hack to get low latency for soundcards that don't offer ASIO. We don't suggest using onboard soundcards, instead you should choose an audio interface with official ASIO drivers.

If Windows deletes your AppDate folders with every Windows restart, there's unfortunately nothing we can do about, as Bitwig Studio is not even running when this happens. We are very sorry to have to send you to the Microsoft support regarding this.

set input to no input when using wasapi, its good for midi work, for audio use some asio driver

i think to be al litlle more clear regarding the second issue: i'm getting a "portaudio pa_openstream failed. error: invalid device" error when trying to use any soundcard. this happened out of the blue, after working around errors trying to use asio4all with windows 7.
