I'm very new to the concept of "processing" music, as in, the notes as opposed to the sound. So, any and all tips for experimentation are sought. Thank you kindly.

Changing or generating? Jesus, where to start... There are eleventy-billion ways to manipulate note in bitwig. Here's my tip, get a generator like Riffer, bitwig lacks a generator.

^^^ or

parameters like speed, steps, notelenght, pos or velo. variance, midi channel, transponsing , pattern number changing (4layes/8patterns) steps number etc. can be automatized (modulated) from BWS

MIDI mapping is quite full in it

New one on me. Had a look. Why's it only pumping out velocity of 1?

We need this in Bitwig! It's a lot of fun, actually:

All of the music (MIDI notes) here is generated by QNG, only the chord progression is defined by a root note in yellow MIDI clip:

Agreed. There's shitloads to do before any new devices.

I want a coffee machine device - though I don‘t drink coffee, but when I meet a producer I can impress her...

Damn, I might buy that Riffer VST! :o

One question, though - does it accept MIDI input, for example to change the root note for the chosen scale? How many of its parameters are automatable?
