Vsti doesn't work with Bitwig for me very well. The cpu just gets gobbled up. With Reaper I can have 5 times the instruments and effects running in a project and that makes a huge difference to my workflow.

Becuase the modulators are LESS complicated and more immediate in use than creating automation to do the same things, and most instruments don’t have the same depth or number of modulation options.
Sorry but I'm not seeing that at all. Nothing is easier than automation - you just press record and do it. And if you want to use the same modulation somewhere else, you just copy/paste it. And in Studio One or Cubase, you only need to record one cycle, which you can then duplicate to your heart's content with a simple press of the D key, then go in and customise it as much as you want. If you need to change the timing, it's a simple CTRL+A, then ALT-Drag.

Yeah thanks, I've been using DAWs for 20 years, I've done all that a time or two. And there's quite a few reasons why I usually use other DAWs than Bitwig. The modulators are still pretty slick and very uncomplicated to use, particularly in using them to modulate different parameters in different rates and directions at the same time. now, if your modulation needs are basic, and you have a controller mapped, and it's a modulation that can be done by a human in real time, sure, it's not hard just to record it.

Mate, I don't use any of it at all, rarely even LFOs in a synth, so I have no skin in the game, I can be completely objective. I don't even understand what it is you think needs modulating, much less why you'd look for the least elegant solution for doing it. It's not like I listen to music and hear any, so it's a bit of a mystery to me. I assume it's because you've watched a video of some other idiot doing it, I can't for the life of me see why else you would and I see heaps of videos that show you how to do all that shit without ever explaining why you might want to.

Mixcraft. It's just so intuitive and easy to use. The only DAW I ever used where I rarely if ever went "???" and had to go plowing through a manual to figure out even the most basic stuff.
