I just started using Bitwig after years of Ableton. I have a few things I don’t understand. What is the Bitwig equivalent of Ableton’s External Instrument? I’m trying to route the audio from Maschine on separate tracks in Bitwig.

For example, Track 01 in Bitwig has Maschine VST, Track 02 is sending a MIDI clip into Maschine to play back with its Group Output to Maschine audio out 2. Track 03 is sending a MIDI clip into Maschine to play back with its Group Output to Maschine audio out 3, and etc.

I see where in the Maschine VST track I can get the multiple outputs, but I don’t want to access the outputs there. I want to be able to put Maschine’s audio out 2 as audio input to the track with the MIDI clip which is triggering those particular sounds. Additionally, if I create an audio track and have it to receive Maschine audio out 2 from Maschine VST, the sound does not go through that audio track.

Can someone please help explain what I’m missing? I thought the changeover in DAWs would feel more seamless.

Hi, there are special devices in Bitwig for external hardware called ... ehm... HW external. You add the device to a track, select midi channels and audio inputs.

I don’t know Maschine I think you might find this useful, https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/bitwig-and-maschine.271090/

Hope this helps.
