Will Bitwig Studio support ReWire?

There is no ReWire support planned, but if you want to route audio and MIDI between different applications, you might want to take a look at the JACK Audio Connection Kit, which is available for OSX, Win and Linux.

Jack seems to be unavailable on Windows though - at least in Beta 9

I intend to use Bitwig Studio with Congnitone Synfire and its DAW drones. For this I'd really prefer to have Rewire available. Will it perhaps be possible in a later revision of Bitwig Studio?

I've used Cubase as my main DAW and experimented with Ableton Live as the slave using Rewire and it is a breeze. I would love to see Bitwig implement Rewire, though I have no experience with the JACK audio connection kit. I'll give it a try and see what happens.

Bitwig seem to like to implement technologies that can be used on every platform that Studio supports, and I suspect they won't jump on ReWire for this reason. Just like Audiounits, they would be great for those on a platform that can take advantage, but they then lose feature-parity across all versions.

Learning it's Bitwig aim to maintain feature-parity which is behind the lack of ReWire support helps put this apparent shortcoming into it's proper context. When seen from this viewpoint, this is clearly a positive attribute. The JACK application is something which I have not used, but it seems the way to incorporate Studio with other DAWs...

Please does anyone have any suggestions by way of specific precautions, before trying JACK out with my system: PC i7 4770k, Windows 8.1, Reason 10, Live 10, Focusrite 6i6 mkII, Korg's microKontrol & padKontrol
