Seems like such an obvious idea, maybe it already exists?
FX Teleport

Never went mainstream and to the best of my knowledge no DAW has yet built this in.

They deserve a user interface design award.

The grid seems to work real well with MPE too, all of the polyphonic expression with none of the mess/duplication.

I am also easily satisfied with things like the scope.

Yeah, the GUI stuff is really impressive.

Click any Grid module and the inspector shows active signals for all active inputs and outputs.

Looks like they are working on cleaning up the GUI in general. Streamlining etc, the oscilloscope looks
much better 4 one imho. Overall, I prefer the graphics in live, bitwig doesn't have far to go to catch up tho.
By graphics, I mostly mean the filled analyzer and waveform drawing etc., which imho is much more polished
in live.

Still, great job on the part of the Bitwig team

I'm about to jump and finally buy into Bitwig for the grid, anyone got any discount codes I can use? Or a recommendation for best site to buy it from?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks in advance,
Audio Deluxe or JRR's will typically have a slight discount. Depending on
how determined you are, the cheapest way would be to buy used, even
upgrading an older version would probably be way cheaper than buying it new.

Also you can always wait until the discounts roll around for Black Friday etc.
as well....

Cheers. In the end I managed to find a 20% discount online via an approved bitwig trainers website.

I'm guessing Bitwig will have some discounts once v3 is publicly available. Or wait a couple of months for black Friday until bugs have been ironed out :P

Anyone have a take on this?
"Polyphonic voices for all Bitwig instruments (and FX Grid) are now processed in parallel"
They seemed pleased with this particular bullet point - is it going to make bitwig more powerful on the same hardware? It sure sounds like a big deal.
I think i remember reading Diva does this too...but all the synths in a DAW doing it would presumably make load spreading much much better...

It is a big deal...

Diva can spread itself across cores in one instance. That does not actually make the synth more efficient. It lets the user spread the CPU load across cores.

I think this is a more efficient way of calculating voices together so it is allowing more total voices than before.

Do you think they are going to have a sale when they release Bitwig 3?

Bitwig Studio 3 has finally been released. However I’m having CPU problems. I had a few projects in Bitwig Studio 2.5 that only used between 30% and 40% of CPU. When I open the same projects on Bitwig Studio 3.0 the CPU is reaching 80% and 90% and the audio is breaking up. I am using a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10.

check your buffer size, I had the same issue and it re-adjusted for about 3ms latency (I was set at 10ms before the update)

BItwig grid does not have 1 unit sample feedback loops implemented , which is imho a pretty big miss.
For feedback loops you need to insert a long delay module set to it's minimum delay time , which reads 0.02 ms but is actually 1 buffer block of 10 to 20 ms ( could be even more )
In other words , you can't create dx7 algoritms that have 2 and more operators in the feedback loops ,like algo 2 and 6 .
A modular without feedback routing possibilty , pretty lame if you ask me

Which DAW can do that natively?

This is new to me. Is it the way it is because it's part of the DAW? Can they make it possible later with an update?

Ableton

I considered jumping over to Bitwig just for the fact they have a Linux version but it’s more expensive than Ableton in the long run and I prefer the stability of Ableton over features. Ableton never crashes on me and when I am working on music I never want to have the DAW crash because it breaks your concentration and is immensely frustrating.

I used Bitwig for a while and had too many crashes and issues. I love what they are doing but I would rather have them focus on the stability of the core over features. Features are cool but it has to be stable.

FL Studio is unique in the fact they build it on pascal which is as fast as c++ and is much faster to develop without sacrificing stability. Bitwig and Ableton have c++ code based which take much more time to get stable.

Maybe one day I will switch but for now I am staying with Ableton. Features only go so far.

Bitwig is rock solid for me (Windows) I have never had a crash, even if a plug in crashes Bitwig doesn’t due to sand boxing, a great feature!

I don’t really understand the argument about Bitwig costing more ‘in the long run’ - bitwig costs about half as much as Live Suite and that it all it will ever cost you unless you ‘choose’ to pay for an upgrade. The upgrade to V3 was less than half the cost of the upgrade from Live 9 to 10 (in fact if you shop around you could buy Bitwig 3 for the cost of upgrading Live from 9 to 10, which is why I am still on Live 9 suite!)

Sounds like a problem with your setup. I use Bitwig almost daily on a Mac and it has literally never crashed.

And yeah, the “more expensive in the long run” comment doesn’t make any sense. You’re free to pay for only major updates, and you need to buy Max for Live to get something comparable to Bitwig 3.

It’s cool if you prefer Ableton or FL or anything else — you don’t need to justify it. But if your main issue with Bitwig was really stability then try contacting Bitwig. I’m sure they’d love to know about the issue and try to help you diagnose it.

It can’t recreate two DX7 algorithms so it’s a “pretty big mess” and “pretty lame.”
Sure, totally makes sense

I don’t think a Moog system 55 can recreate any DX7 algorithms. It must be the lamest modular ever.
