So, BWS now looks to have a better sampler than Live Suite....reasons for using Live are getting less with each of the frequent updates.

The rate of updfates and improvements (and true inovation) by the BWS team is truely outstanding. Maybe one day they will even get a sub-forum on Slutz!

I'll have to renew my update plan! Sampler looks gooooooood.

I'm a little sad that there's no Drum Sampler-to-WAV function, I had asked for that, seems a waste of the awesome sample slicer not to have it spit out audio files & MIDI map (so I can import that into my MPC). A bit like the old Propellerhead Recycle software did. (which has been abandoned)
But they said "nope" we have other priorities. Maybe in the future.

I can advocate for VidPlayVST too. Using it inside an FX-Selector makes it possible to start and end and begin on a new cue with little tweaking.

Hmm. I wouldn't go that far. It's certainly a nice sampler. Has all the features you would need, but Ableton's has realtime stretching built in and chopping is also built in which makes it a little easier to use. My biggest gripe so far is the inability to to drag and drop sections directly from the arrange view to the sampler or to a Drum rack like I can with Ableton. It's a real workflow killer for me.

EDIT: After some testing it seems you can drag and drop sections from audio in the arrange view into the sampler/drum machine. Its just not as straightforward as it is in other DAWs. You have to make sure that in the dialog that asks if you want to slice you set it to Audio Event instead. Not exactly intuitive but it works.

Now I üst have to find out if its possible to do drum machine templates. For example when slicing Ableton gives you the option of using a template and using drop to choose it when slicing. That would be very helpful since right now by default all slices in the Drum machine are not in one shot mode.

I’m gonna update my subscription once I get some extra money. Version 2.3.5 works really well, but I want to definitely support Bitwig because it’s such an awesome program.

I was just thinking the same thing! Its super odd that bitwig doesnt have its own section right? Or is it not widely used?

I agree with above posters that the reasons for using live seem to be diminishing (despite the fact that push 2 offers a great workflow, and max for live is insanely awesome)

Personally, i have been on a huge journey over the summer. I was just feeling like i had really nailed Live and Studio one. I settled on them a couple of years ago and really got in there and learned them pretty well.
But then i tried a synth called biotek. I didnt think i needed it but, alas, i fell in love with it. On checking out the company (Tracktion) i saw they had their own DAW.
Anyway, to cut it short, i realised that Waveform had loads of insanely modern and inspiring features. Overall it opened my eyes to the fact that there are actually some serous innovations happening in the DAW world.
I then decided to try a bunch of them to see fi i was missing anything. Tried FL - awesome, really great modulators....however it feels a bit dated already in some respects...plus the workflow can be a bit clunky.

Bitwig was the last one i tried (couple of days ago) and im just amazed so far. It feels like it picked up where ableton left off. The modulators are life changing. Yes, live has them too (including loads of awesome 3rd party ones) but its the workflow in bitwig - it almost makes you try new things!!

Anyway, i have come away thinking the most advanced ones overall are bitwig and waveform. Which is crazy, because nobody seems to be using them!!!!

Can anybody comment on bitwigs efficiency with regards to consumption? I have noticed my cpu straining pretty hard - but i also have some new plugins which could be making the difference. Do the modulators tend to be pretty CPU intensive?
Thats pretty much my only concern at the moment. Other than the fact that i will miss push if i transition over. But seriously, at this point....its hard to find reasons not to be using bitwig. If you want the most advanced system...this seems to be it.
