media-sound/bitwig-studio is a closed source audio production and performance software; which includes several virtual instruments, samples, clips and the means to use them in scenes and tracks.
It is possible to use it with media-sound/jack-audio-connection-kit and it is recommended by their staff.

Please, follow these instructions: pending
Adding the overlay
To add the overlay, just copy the dstien-portage.xml file into /etc/layman/overlays and we're done.
cd /etc/layman/overlays curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dstien/dstien-portage/master/dstien-portage.xml
Then, just sync all the overlays:

Installing media-sound/bitwig-studio is as easy as:
