I downloaded some samples online and was very excited to use them but when I dropped them into the samples section they did not play. Why is this?

I honestly don’t know. I just started using bitwig a couple days ago. Everything else makes sound it’s just the sample that doesn’t make sound.

Bitwig 2.4

Which Bitwig version are you in? Which sampler mode (if it's v2.4)? Have you added a MIDI clip with notes or played one with your keyboard or MIDI controller? Does anything else actually make sound?

So little info, so many questions...

what audiofile you download?

Do the preset sampler sounds play? Try some different samples, maybe the ones you downloaded are somehow corrupter, wrong format, etc.

Make sure you drag the sampler to an empty area in the arranger and not on top of an existing instrument.
