Hey, comrads! I have BeatStep Pro and struggling to find a way how to integrate it with Bitwig. It's written that Moss does not support it :/ Any advices on how to make it? I want to use knobs for plugins parameters control at least.

Hi Moss - I've just got the APC40 MK2 and I'm using it with Bitwig, is it just me or is there some delay/latency when launching clips? My timing seems to be off when I'm triggering compared to the native script that comes with Bitwig? Yours is much better, so of course I want to use it!

I also noticed some lag in some situations that wasn't there when using the native MIDI controller.
But this is hard to pin down. My feeling was that this was not consistent and sometimes there were no problems and sometimes a quite feelable lag.
Is this a downside of bigwig extensions in general?

Hi,

how do I select the base note of a scale with APC Mini with latest drivenbymoss 13.7. script installed?

Best, Bastian

Hi Moss! Is there any way to make the 'pads' or the mix view follow 'track selection'?

My problem is that if I 'directly select' a track by mouse or MIDI, the pads only update if I'm in the right 'mixer page'...

Video to illustrate - I select a few tracks via MIDI - all works fine till I select one that's not in view: https://photos.app.goo.gl/dxich8cTQLUpJaD97

Thanks!

When using Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 mki in Reaper, if I bring up a VST, I can see the parameters fine in the S61's parameter menus, automatically mapped for me.

However, in Bitwig Studio 4, only the Volume and Track pages have values; the Parameter menu will show the name of the VST, but won't display actual parameters, unless the VST is Bitwig-exclusive (or Diva). Moving the knobs does nothing. I am using the latest version, 13.7.0.

Ex. Parameters for Bitwig's FM-4 will appear on the 8 screens, but parameters for Arturia Analog Lab V, Cherry Audio Memorymode, or Dexed will not.

I tried using the MIDI Learn features to see if those would work, but it doesn't look like the inputs are recognized by Bitwig in VST's, so that didn't work either.

In the video for Komplete Kontrol mki series, I see the Parameter menu is usable with Diva (https://youtu.be/6qAUX4rThFw?t=261), and Diva does work, but I couldn't get other third-party VST's to work. Maybe I'm missing something important?
I guess you are new to Bitwig, please see this video about how to deal with VST parameters:

First off I would like to say a HUGE thankyou to Moss for such a fantastic addition for Bitwig

Has anyone else on here have any issues though using a Launchpad Pro MK3 and the DrivenbyMoss script and Bitwig ?

Works perfectly, except sometimes (and haven't narrowed it down completely yet) Bitwig/script won't communicate with the Launchpad unless I unplug it and plug it back in

Symptom is the Launchpad is illuminated - yet when press any button you just get the initialised light blue and pink screen (not sure what symbol its meant to be) - if I check Bitwig controller settings the Launchpad is detected yet won't respond

unplug it and plug it back in and all perfect - just a bit of a faff and not great with regards to the life of the connectors

any ideas please ? I've not narrowed down if its after a period of time, each time I start bitwig or after a reboot but I will endeavor to find out

hoping its not the Launchpad Pro thats faulty

all my other usb controllers (MOXF) and Arturia Keystep seem to respond correctly

I will try without script to see if makes any difference

many many thanks

Haven't heard so far of such an issue, so could be a hardware issue but maybe not the device itself, could be a faulty cable, problematic hub, the usual USB fun...

Is it possible to navigate to a specific device page directly with the FLEXI script? I want to map buttons to a fixed device page but there is only an option to jump to the next or previous page.

Should work with Modes (Select item X).
