Also, the Grid is hard to demo unless someone is specifically into modular software.
Is there a reason that I would want to be into modular software other than to waste a few hours plugging in cables to see what noise comes out ?

Enjoyable, yes, but does it have an end purpose ?
It's impossible to answer what you would want... you can answer that, not me.

I can say what I like about modular... for example, Bazille can make all sorts of sounds I have not found/heard in more standard synths.

About the Grid specifically, what I am liking about it is how fast it is to work with. I expect I will mainly make simple constructs that have options not readily available from the standard Bitwig instruments. For example, take the Bitwig Sampler. Sometimes I want to do something it is not capable of such as grunge up a sample before it goes to the filter... maybe ring mod it. Or for a particular sound, I want dual filters or I want to FM the filter with an Osc or let a little of the raw signal past the filter.

Now I can do all those things basically as quickly as if those capabilities were built into the Sampler to begin with.

Another use case for me... I am really into expressive instrument sounds and MPE playing. The Grid makes it possible to shape the aftertouch curve, velocity and timbre in subtle ways. So I can make a simple 2 Osc into a filter patch but with nuanced MPE control.

Sure, one can spend hours wiring this that or the other or all of the above to see what happens. But that is not mandatory :hihi: It can be a quick and precise tool for doing specific tasks.

Bitwig really need to up their PR game.
Yup.

Bitwig at Superbooth talking to Warren Huart. 25:13 in video. Link is timestamped to there. Grid at 30:41. Apologies if already posted.

How not to impress someone with the grid. :lol:
Wow! That's what I call a missed opportunity...

As an aside, I'm surprised Behringer hasn't made the super DAW with all the DAW features that exist in all the others plus their effects line @ $43.99 :D
:lol:
Closest I've come to peeing my pants in 30 years

I don't know if it will have all the DAW features that exist but Behringer did announce they're making a DAW last year and it will be free! :tu:

Free, and, I predict, abandoned within 18 months.

competiton is good, I mean considering the features one guy put into his Radium Sequencer in one year vs. the whole Ableton Team in the last 5 years, it's a bit silly. At least Bitwig are no snails when it comes to integrating new features :D
