Having been used to midi tracks I am puzzled, in bitwig 1.5 as to how to route 3 or 4 tracks to play one instrument instance on midi 1 I prefer separate clips on seperate midi tracks is kick, snare, hats etc for ease of arrangement

Not sure if I understood your question correct, but I think you refer on Multitimbral Instruments right? This is possible in Bitwig. See my Screenshot.alt text

I think he means this to... btw @johnwhybrew do you mean bitwig 1.0.5? Bitwig 1.5 doesnt excist yet. You need bitwig 1.1 for this to work. Just login to your account and download the latest version.

Yes. That's what I did. And when I went to bounce each MIDI channel to a separate audio track or even just isolate a single MIDI channel within the VI, I could find no obvious way to do it. For example, I cannot mute the MIDI-only track. The VI instrument track always plays all of the MIDI-only tracks that point to its channels. By contrast, the VI instrument track can be muted. Huh?

BWS doesn't seem to work well that way for me either. I've asked if there's a way to include multiple MIDI channels in the VI (instrument track), but never got an answer.

Since the VST's seems to do so well in BWS, I'd recommend just creating a new track for each instrument rather than trying to conserve on tracks/VI's.
