I'm super excited to have just bought Bitwig and a Merging Hapi interface, with the intention of leaving Nuendo behind forever.

However, there seems to be a serious incompatibility issue between the Ravenna ASIO driver and Bitwig. Any correct setup will cause a wall of white noise to emanate from the ASIO inputs in Bitwig, yet in Nuendo the setup is correct and audio is captured flawlessly.

So you know how a Hapi works, here's the signal path:

DAW <--> Ravenna ASIO driver <--> Ravenna audio-over-IP network <--> Merging Hapi interface <--> Hapi preamps

The network setup is correct and tested on Nuendo and Pyramix.

The hardware has been tested and works as specified.

The ASIO driver functions correctly with Nuendo, and appears to be funcitoning normally with Bitwig, except for the white noise.

Note that audio playback from Bitwig works fine; audio coming in from Ravenna does not.

Any ideas? I really don't want to have to sell Bitwig. It's too good a tool.

Just to report that I've installed Bitwig v.2.2 and the problem persists.

Sounds like a duplicate of . Try to use the ASIO4ALL driver instead of the native driver for the device.

Alas, ASIO4ALL is not compatible with a Merging interface, as they are audio-over-IP devices, but ASIO4ALL cannot interoperate over Ravenna.

A suitable ASIO driver would need to be Ravenna- (or, at the very least, AES67-) compliant in order to work with a Merging interface.

Update: after over a year, this problem persists and I cannot capture audio using Bitwig.

I have now allowed my subscription to lapse and will not renew it until a fix is provided.
