Is it possible to have a Bitwig delay trigger a MIDI drum hit on a different track?


I did not understand what you want to obtain as a result....

Would you mind to be more specific? Which effect do you want to realize?

I would like use Delay-2's output as an event to trigger MIDI notes in another track.

yeah. My question was more intended to understand what you want achieve musically, more than technically.... An answer like "I have a track with a kick recorded and I want to add some e-clap 2ms after each kick... you know? an explanation like that, more than I want to add 5 and 3 to compute how much is 5+3.... lol...

I see you want to keep your musical needs a secret....

The only help I personally can give with these details is to point you to a couple of devices which can process transients in audio: Replacer and Transient Control.

I hope you understand that without a clue on the audio material, it is a bit difficult to imagine a processing chain of help.

Best regards,

Sorry, Fabrizio, I didn't understand! I wasn't trying to keep secrets! I have a MIDI part playing a vibraphone VST that goes into Delay-2, whose delay timings are varied by either automation or modulation. When the delay repeats, I'd like to trigger an organ note. I had a go with Replacer, but will now take a closer look -- thought I was heading in the wrong direction, but very much appreciate your comments as encouragement. Cheers Lee

Hi leegee. Do not forget the Transient Control. It might help to obtain a more refined impulse for triggering. Probably it might be needed to also enable/disable the Replacer using a modulation to skip the direct sound. Just an hypothesis. You might also need to have parallel processing chains, you can obtain using fx layers.

Hope this helps...
