Hi Bitwigglers!

I implemented a controller script which allows to use the Hercules P32 DJ controller with Bitwig. It supports to DJ, control track parameters, devices, transport, session view, play the pads and it has a drum sequencer.

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

The version in GitHub might always be in an alpha or beta state, you have been warned! :D

Enjoy!

  • New: If you keep the left play button pressed to create a new clip you can now change the clip length with the left SIZE/ADJUST knob.
  • New: Pressing Sampler Right enters a new session sub mode. Use left Shift for navigation.
  • New: Added Option: Select Clip on Launch

WARNING:
I just pushed the latest code to GitHub which now supports the new v2 API.
https://github.com/git-moss/P32DJ4Bitwig

This version is NOT compatible with 1.3.x! If you are on the Beta list feel free to give it a try.

There are still some regressions in the API, which are documented here: https://github.com/teotigraphix/Framewo ... regression

So please look there first before reporting bugs.
