I'm using the clip launcher to send midi to various hardware synths. Then I'm routing the synth audio back into a couple of bitwig audio tracks. I arm those audio tracks for recording and as expected I get new audio clips in the arranger.

What I dont understand is why I am also getting new midi clips appearing in the arranger even though I have purposely left those tracks unarmed for recording? Its obviously the clip launcher output being recorded into the arranger - and I can see why that could be useful if I wanted to do that, but right now I would like to be able to stop it happening. Any ideas?


I'd like to know too

There's no way to stop the behaviour. I've allready requested to add a switch in arranger to engage exclusive recording of (only) armed tracks. Please write to support with a good explanation of your problem!

Will do. So basically the big record button on the transport bar is not to be touched while producing a song, right? I'm new to Bitwig, say I want to record a band which means I need to record a number of microphones and sources simultaneously to separate clips in the clip launcher. Is there a way to start recording multiple clips all at the same kind, or do I need to click the record button on each clip at a time?
