Some 3rd party plugins such as FXpansion's Geist feature multiple outputs, which may be routed freely to other audio tracks. Will this be supported in a future version of Bitwig?

This is one of the features that Bitwig must have before I even consider buying it. I wouldn't even buy it for a quarter of the price without this feature. For now I'll continue playing with the demo.

I've asked the same question a while ago (and quiet recently again). Multiple outputs will be supported in a future version. Even before 2.0 if I am not mistaking.

Agreed. I will not be prurchasing until this is added. I was really excited about the demo. I then tried to route Kontakt. ... no longer excited by demo. Product is worthless to my workflow.

+1, I really need this to make the most out of my Virus and Kontakt etc for Bitwig to be really usable to me

Multi output from plugins is very high on the priority list of the developers, but not sure which version will add this feature.

It would appear that this would be a "required" feature for most owners of "multiple output" software, Kontakt and etc. However, if you have a multi-core processor on your box, careful consideration should be taken regarding this feature. Depending upon your platform, your software and your DAW, multiple outputs from a single track may NOT be able to spread the processing load across the multiple cores on your box. It may be best to create your "scratch" midi track; i.e. a drum/percussion groove or a string or brass section on a single track and then export each sound to its own midi track, create another software instance for those midi tracks and then process in Bitwig when preparing your mix. For the final mix, a rendering of midi to audio would be optimal and an expected deliverable format. Would like to know from Bitwig how this functionality is going to be implemented in their future update and what they recommend regarding best practices for now and when the multiple-out feature becomes available. Thanks a bunch!

Good advice for multi-core processors

Yes, Bitwig has said it will be in an update before version 2.

Hopefully asap

Seeing this is a priority is reassuring. But, its exclusion in today's environment is pretty laughable. I have no idea how to program a DAW, but I do know what is needed to be taken seriously. This is one of those features. This was a major oversight for a first release. All the sparkle of my shiny new demo was ruined in a matter of minutes with the realization I couldn't use it with my core plugins. wah wah..

Same reason I stopped playing with the demo. Will not even start considering BW again til this is on the table.

edit: in other news, my vsts finally showed up and will probably give it a go tomorrow
