Any modern DAW that can't keep music in time is a joke. Timing is crucial to music! I just cannot believe that these programs let automation slip out of time, it is a stupid tired old joke.

What is such a joke about Ableton Live? The PDC is a big shame but Bitwig suffers the same problem so I guess it's a joke as well. They both have their problems unfortunately. But Ableton still has lots of things Bitwig doesn't.

The joke is the time Ableton needs to get PDC running reasonable.

Live lets you do this as well.

True but Bitwig had all those years designing the DAW from scratch and still didn't get it right. Is that not worse?

shhhh. fanboy alert. As I said previously, there are plenty of fanboys who haven't even used Live but complaining about Live :hihi:

For people complaining about PDC fail, official response from Bitwig in this thread:

Most of it works great, but there's currently a bug with the last one, for example and there might be other scenarios that don't behave correctly, as pdc and time/routing stuff can be a real pita :) Anyway, the problems are not by design but bugs and we will check out all scenarios that don't work as they should and fix it.
Normally everything that can be reproduced reliable is fixable, esp. as the code base is still fresh...

I'm really hoping I'm missing something here. Or maybe it's a bug. If not, maybe they could just add it, since double click drag with the pointer tool does nothing so it wouldn't mess anything up.


Hahahaha - remember when I told you that you will find something you hate about Bitwig. There we are ;-)

And who would have thought it's something as simple (to solve (hopefully) ) as a note-entering tool ;-)

I hope you will enjoy the ride anyway. :party:

Yep. That is exactly what I thought of when I first realized that. I'm still gonna pick it up probably. Just waiting to see if the devs are going to comment on that or some other feature request so that I know that there's a decent chance they will fix it. Also I wanna see how that PDC thing turns out.

Ah good. Just what I wanted to hear, and not much of a wait either. Time to switch back from quiet skepticism mode in Bitwig HYPE HYPE HYPE HYPE

BTW. I just tried that scenario and found the solution from Andy very workable. Having the Pen active to draw notes and have one finger over the "1" to temporarily switch to the pointer.

As for fixes and improvements: I found them very responsive in the Beta, although my priorities weren't always the same as theirs obviously. ;-)

Some growing pains are to be expected :borg: :tu:

Cheers mate!

You people...sheeesh.

It is just a new release. Just report the bugs and leave it at that.

This reminds me of the war that broke out on Cakewalk's forum when X1 first came out. New product will have issues peeps....

Ok, gonna go watch some crime documentaries, because this one looks like another fail on the block :lol:
Seriously, no midi for multi-timbrel instruments? wtf :help: I might have something misread here, though.
PDC f***ed up? GTFL :clap:

Edit:
come on, it's just a first release, take a look at cubase 1 or live 1, yeah? So should I be grateful that's not atari midi only, since it's only first release ? Wow it's first release and it's not atari, wow, just F***ing wow, unbelievable, that's f(((ing revolutionary, Nobel anyone ? :clap:

Yeah, that will work for now. Pen tool could also use some tweaks, maybe the ability to move notes. I'm compiling my wishlist.

Anyway, Cheers :tu:

I love Ableton, but it doesn't let you do that. You can set the return to pre/post but that is in independent of each insert. That is to say that every channel that would be sent to the return would be pre or post. You can't sent individual channels as pre/post.
