I would love if Bitwig adds a saturator effect (similar to Ableton's one). With Ableton I used it pretty much all the time (the "sine" mode, in particular), to add a bit of weight and grit to basses, leads and drums. Really missing it in Bitwig. Will you be adding it please?

I agree, that would be great! For the time being you could use this excellent free saturator from Softube:

You're welcome! Controlwise its simple but under the hood and soundwise very powerful!

I agree bigwigs distortion does sound pretty nice.. turning the mix down real low and slowly bumping up the drive gives a nice grit similar to abletons the knobs make you use your ears not just your eyes :)

I too use the one from softube And I agree a native saturation would be great ive been asking for once since before 1.1 I hope it has some kind of graphical element to it I don't like how the distortion is just a bunch of knobs

Bitwig's Distortion device really sounds good to me and has a nice tweaking interface !
