Hi

Does Bitwig have a way of quantising pitch. Is there a method of taking a sample and hold input and having the output conform to a given scale, such the output is random within the scale.

I saw this effect demonstrated on a modular synth, and quite impressive.

Thanks

For MIDI you can use either the diatonic transposer or the remapping tool.

Remember that if you modulate the DC device with a LFO or such, you can generate notes with the Replacer device after that... So you can have super fast 80s videogame style arpeggios, etc.

Broken Chords like Martin Galway?! Interesting, I've never looked at the devices you mentioned. Must have a look. :hyper:

I own a silly amount of VST's but I've recently just started using BW only devices. It's refreshing and my CPU is much lower.
