I have down loaded the silent way demo and installed it into a VST folder. On start up Bitwig 2.4.3 says silent way taking to long to scan Options then are wait longer or skip Waiting longer has no effect and so I am unable to use my es-4 to control my modular, and lets be honest modular and hardware integration are one of the major advertising features of Bitwig.

thanks any help?

Win 10 BW 2.4.3 Silent Way 2.8.0

Actually you do not need any external software to use hardware integration with Bitwig: it is embedded using the HW instruments.

This is the major advertised feature, and it is true.

Best regards,

Appreciate that as I use those with my midi synths. This is about using silent way with the ES 4 to allow up to 8 CV out of my Non DC coupled focusrite interface. Silent way is a VST that wont scan. :(

To my knowledge, as already told you, you do not need Silent way. You can use Expert Sleepers.stuff from Bitwig alone. Look at Hw cv instruments.
