+1 Groove Pool.
It doesn't have to be "great", just something on the lines of what Live offers.
Another one for added groove/swing/groove pool. BUT. It does have to be great. Make it the best there is with all options. Extract from audio, extract from midi. Different grooves per clip. Everything.

That said... I've already paid my update and will still be happy with Bitwig even if they just changed it to v4.0.

But.. another improvement I'd like to see is better mixer functionality.
  • Improved faders/meters.
  • Ability to link faders.
  • Ability to create new 'views' i.e. so can have a custom view with only selected groups
etc

  • Ability to link faders.
Select 2+ tracks and then move the fader (and some other selected parameters) in Inspector panel.

You can enter / focus into any Group in top-left corner of the arranger window (there's a drop down). You can group groups, too.

I would pay for a standalone unit (like Akai Force, or NI Maschine+).

Haven't found a DAW yet that works well with just a touchscreen....Bitwig is one of the best, but give me a laptop and mouse everyday!

Now a dedicated Bitwig controller...maybe? Bitwig must be one of the only DAWS that doesn’t have a dedicated controller. The scripts have made using generic or other DAWS controllers viable....but still, never quite the same!

Apple silicon should be a given, as with comping. ARA would make it more genre universal.

That's why I have Elektron, MPC Live and a Polyend Tracker! I don't think you will ever see a 'DAW' in a Box...but plenty of other fun options.

Thanks! This is exactly what I do. select, ctrl + select - but still only the one channel fader moves.


With the 'mixers views', I mean really more of making an alternative mixer view with different channels. For the final mix I aim for some sub groups for processing and mixing, along with a Main and a Parallel Main that go out to Master. So I want a view of the mixer that ONLY has the channels I want, which will typically be 6-8 group or key channels, plus that main and parralel and the final master.

I get that I can collapse and expand group tracks - but what I really want is my compact cherry picked tracks/group tracks for mixing, totally separate to how I have my project setup. I don't want to collapse all the groups in arrange, just to see the groups only view in the mixer. Or at very least, be able to have a few configurations that I can jump between.

That doesn't sound right. If you select multiple tracks and then move fader IN INSPECTOR, all of the faders on selected tracks will move proportionally.

I don't mean collapsing groups (hiding tracks that are inside of it). I'm at work now so can't show it, but in the top-left corner of the Arranger there's this button - if you click it, you can 'focus' arranger and editors on selected Group only:

I know it's not the same as track visibility settings in Cubase or Studio One, but at least it's something :)

Thanks for replying. I owe you a beer, you are always so helpful!

Weird, yep, I can only move a single fader at a time... ah Ok, in the inspector, on the very left... but only in that horizontal fader... Thanks that is something I guess, will be helpful. I'd rather have it work in the mixer itself if possible. Maybe I should email BW.

And, thanks - that 'focus on group' is something I had overlooked and could be quite useful at times. Something like that, but being able select multiple groups, and keep a few 'view' would be pretty neat.

But really, I just want a main mixing view, stems if you like - but without the collapsing/uncollapsing.

Many more controllers now work out-of-the-box in Bitwig Studio, such as Novation Launchpad Pro (using our new beat repeat API function), Arturia KeyLab MkII, PreSonus FaderPort 8 and 16, as well as Nektar SE25, SE49, GX and LX+.
the colors of the track selectors on it follow the Bitwig ones so looks nice at night :D gives the room a touch of color.

ps. modern workflow new possibilities :party:
