The other thing I would miss a lot is Live's midi step recording. I use that all the time for creating notes. It is fast and I don't have to think about what notes on the vertical piano roll make a particular chord. And with the step recording you can add chords at once so it is really fast when one gets used to it.

It's 2014 but still no one can seem to get a piano roll right. Every DAW should shamelessly rip off the FL studio one. Then I would try them out. Unfortunately nothing comes close, so I'll stick with FLS.

FL piano rollrocks but the program needs a face lift, would be great if Imageline shamelessly copied reapers gui, especially the mixer, but kept all its features

^Hit control+enter to bring up the "commander," this will show you a list of key commands for whatever window has focus.

Dunno about the spacebar.

So I have to say, i couldn't control myself. Quick summary with in depth to come (including performance tests).

1) Time stretch to this day (in HD mode) is the best I have ever heard. By far. I'm stunned. I was lowering 130 bpm complete songs to 100 and they sounded identical, just at a new tempo. I guess since something (now inferior) like radius used to cost 399 as a plugin on it's own, this goes a long way to justify the bitwig price

2) Very easy to use, inviting, slick interface.

3) Unfortunately, I can't get anything but distorted sound at anything under 128 samples on my mac,even playing a single audio file, so performance testing will be interesting to say the least.

From what I am gathering so far, if they add some of the missing stuff many of us here have mentioned, it will be one of the best hosts around. So how's that for a 360 from me. That said, it really DOES need those extra features. But this is the first time i'd consider something else other than logic.. when it has the features I need.

Anyone know if you can set a default template or if thats just a demo restriction because of no saving? I couldnt find any options anywhere and did a quick scan of the manual but I may have missed it

Anyone else unable to bounce from from the send like in this video ? http://youtu.be/-muxJvmvm8U?t=1m37s

Also, When i send an insert channel to a return channel and If i solo that channel, audio stops. I can't just listen to the return channel (unless I set the channel as pre-fader and turn the insert channel down to 0) - is anyone else experiencing this?

Lots of respect for your "call it as I see it" attitude, without all the hyperbole drenching so many of the other threads. :tu:

Same here, although I would say "at or below 128". I asked about this on the Bitwig forum and someone said it was a bug and that this goes away in full screen mode. I can't test for a while but check it out.
This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 255 character limit. Once I have something clever, I will certainly fill it in.

So now that the bitwig forum exists, I wonder when this thread is going to drop off? I don't think this thing has been below the halfway mark on the frontpage since around oct when I joined and the betatesters starting giving info.

It won't go away. It will be retitled to the all-in-one Bitwig laments-and-regrets mega thread.

Hi all,

Just a quick heads-up about the new issue of Computer Music magazine, which includes step-by-step guides, 13 tutorial videos and a full review of Bitwig Studio.

Full info is at http://bit.ly/cm203

The review is also online at http://bit.ly/BitwigRev
