Can't figure out how to step enter notes from my midi keyboard - anyone know? Don't see anything that will put me in Step Input Mode. This same function is described in Logic here:

I'd like to second (through 9th) this request. It's something that's keeping me in another daw for longer than I'd like!

I'm trying to make the switch from Renoise and honestly the thought of clicking for every single note I want to input is... less than ideal, especially as someone with RSI issues. This would become a core part of my workflow if it were available.

No, currently there is no step mode.

We might add this later, since i've just packed this feature request on our wishlist - thank you!

Sign me up for step recording input too! I do a lot of scoring (using orchestra libraries) which means a lot of note entry, too much to do all by mouse, and too detailed to record in realtime. Just this one feature would make it possible for me to do a lot more work within Bitwig.

This is one of the features I've been longing most for since moving over to Bitwig.

Yes, this is very important for me. when it will be implemented????

I only bought Bitwig 4 days ago. This step sequencing / recording is something I‘d like to have too!! Since the first questions here is three years old and it’s still not implemented my expectations are not too high... :-(

I have not yet bought Bitwig, I am currently trying out the demo. This feature would go a long way towards convincing me.
