Can I import MIDI files into bitwig?

I tried it but nothing happened....

thanks fpr helpo!

I dont deserv the downvote from before cause it works.

However this says about bitwig update status from previous update versions. If you have older version than this then it wont work. Then you need to update.

Changes in Bitwig Studio 1.0.8 RC3

Released on 28.04.2014.

IMPROVED Note pencil tool should disconnect mouse cursor during dragging to avoid limitations of movement.

IMPROVED Can't drop MIDI file on existing track.

IMPROVED Use pixel threshold for adjusting note length and velocity using pencil tool.

IMPROVED Individual note-length memory per track.

IMPROVED Changed default install location for windows installer not to include the version number, which was causing shortcuts to the executable to stop working after upgrading

IMPROVED Allow release-candidate builds to be installed in without uninstalling the normal builds on windows

IMPROVED Added symmetry control to distortion device which controls the mix of even/odd harmonics

IMPROVED Added Slope control for the decay of the E-Hat device

IMPROVED Better solo behavior for return tracks

IMPROVED EQ2/5 display now show modulation

FIXED Wrong default value for Step MOD (32/1).

FIXED Midi drag&drop from microtonic didn't work on windows

FIXED External instrument didn't send MIDI CC to the selected channel

FIXED Sampler playback was missing the first 7 samples of the attack

FIXED metadata with sub-paths (shell plugs-ins/soundfont patches) no longer work

FIXED When adjusting note velocity, only audition changes when auditioning is actually enabled.

FIXED Hanging note when auditioned track changes while a key on the piano roll keyboard is pressed.

FIXED Quantize regression: quantizing a chord kills all but one note.

FIXED Crash when moving track with clips into FX section and then moving it out again.

Hi Ronny

Can you re upload the image? I want to import .mid files as well, but can't manage to do so.

Amadeus: to import your midi files, you can just drag and drop them from your desktop or usual file manager, or by using Bitwig's file browser.

Didnt know it would look this smal. Soo i write it below the steps and just look at the numbers.

  1. Press here (follow where the arrow points towards)

  2. Search for the folder you have the midi files in here

  3. Searh for the midi file in this window here

  4. When found midi drag it in to the arrangeview to place midi file.

Sorry to say Ronny is right, this works fine. You should not downvote a correct answer.
