Hi Bitwigglers!

Today is X-mas time for Akai lovers! :party:

I implemented a controller script which supports the APC40, APC40mkII and APCmini controllers with Bitwig. Same feature set as with Ableton and some more.

Get the latest stable release from: http://www.mossgrabers.de/Software/Bitwig/Bitwig.html

There is also a series of in-depth tutorial videos available: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... q_WjqPp-3W

Enjoy!

Nice work. Can't wait for Bitwig to get the features I need so I can try this! Sure it's great!

Feel some Push envy? You don't have to any more!

Here is version 2 of the APC scripts:

APC40, APC40mkII:
- Added new Play mode with Scales.
- Added new Drum Sequencer mode.
- Added new Note Sequencer mode.
- Improved device lookup.

APCmini
- Added new Play mode with Scales.
- Added new Drum Sequencer mode.
- Added new Note Sequencer mode.
- Added Transport controls.
- Improved device lookup.
- Bugfix: Right upper pad not recognized.

Get them from: http://www.mossgrabers.de/Software/Bitwig/Bitwig.html
Also see the updated Wiki documentation.

Enjoy!

Oh wow this is great to know. I was only looking at the apcmini yesterday and only thing putting me off was that I wasn't sure if it would work with bitwig. Now I see it will :-)

Out of interest, how does apcmini compare to launchpad mini?

Thanks

i testet the launchpad mini in the shop..for me personally, the build-quality of the apc-mini is better,
der pads feel a more solid and less spongy, it has a normal usb port, not a mini-usb...
and u get the faders :-)

Could anybody please tell me if it's possible to rotate the orientation of the clip grid on apc mini (to match bigwigs two views) as you can on launch pad?

Thanks

Thanks a lot moss! This is awesome news. :tu:
Could you please make a demo video and post it on youtube?
I'm about to get an APCmini, but first I want to see how it runs with Bitwig using your script. I just borrowed a Launchpad from a friend, and tried it with Bitwig, and I was very disappointed. It doesn't behave as I expected, and I don't want to have the same surprise with the APCmini so that's why I'm asking you to make a little demo so we can see how the APC40, 40mk2 and mini work with Bitwig.

One more thing: does your script implement the possibility to start/stop the MIDI overdub and the metronome or the possibility to delete a clip? That would be great.

Tnx
