So I've got a simple drum pad, basically just a bouncy surface and a piezo pickup. Recording these hits give VERY clear transients without any background noise, yet Bitwig fails to mark these with onsets! At first, I thought it might be because the audio was clipping - it seemed to fail more often with the hard hits - but that wasn't the case, so now I'm just confused.

Has anyone else had this issue? And if so, was there any solution? Again, I'm talking about super clear transients from a piezo pickup here, so there shouldn't be any problem at all.

Does it find ANY onsets in that particular sample? Or any other sample, for that matter?

I've found some interesting, and weird, things. It does detect some hits, and it seems to be much better at detecting the soft hits than loud ones (no clipping is occurring). Now, for some reason, Bitwig is better at detecting onsets when I record further in, like 6 beats into the song and onwards. I guess that resolves the problem? Kind of?

Would be great if you could record a video showing the problem, because it sounds really peculiar and seems like a bug :(
