Coming from a tracker background, a vertical representation of the piano roll would be great for some kind of workflows (along with layered clips).

Use Renoise stand-alone, or its plug-in VST equivalent Redux ;) :P There is layered clip editing mode in Bitwig, if you're alluding that it is missing.

Yep, I'm a Renoise and Redux user already ;)

And did you asked them to put patterns and arranger horizontally 'like in any normal DAW'? How has that worked out? ;) :D

I'm all for consistency and if Bitwig changed the piano roll to vertical, they'd have to do the same to Arranger (and Clip Launcher in that view). Frankly, I don't see any advantage in piano roll being vertical. What I miss from the trackers is a simple thing: a cursor in piano roll that I can move about and use to insert, edit and delete notes with keyboard, like I would in Renoise. This is what makes that workflow fast, not whether it's vertical or horizontal, IMO :)
