Introduction

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.

Preparing to install

We need to use the dstien-portage overlay; which is not official. It is recommended to use app-portage/layman to install it.

Installing Layman

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:

layman -S

Now, we're ready to continue the installation.

Installation

One thing to keep in mind before installing is if you want to use media-video/libav or media-video/ffmpeg for the audio rendering. Since media-sound/bitwig-studio is packaged, originally, for Ubuntu and the ebuild re-packages it for Funtoo, we assume they prefer media-video/libav. That said, media-video/ffmpeg the prefered application by our community. Feel free to use whichever you prefer.

If you are to use media-video/ffmpeg, please, remove libav from the USE flag of that package:

echo 'media-sound/bitwig-studio -libav' > /etc/portage/package.use/bitwig-studio

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

emerge bitwig-studio
