Is there a way to capture MIDI after you've played it without recording? Something similar to Ableton's Capture or FL Studio's MIDI log?

Bump* Although I don't think there is, I'd also like to know if one is in the works or so^^

The problem still persists with the latest bitwig MyColes.

Yeah, capturing ideas is so essential and it's too easy to lose them in Bitwig 3.1.1. Even if you armed your track and pressed record, the performance gets dropped if the Launcher was writing to Arranger. Being able to capture the last performance would rescue many good takes and give Bitwig a friendlier workflow.

Ideally, tracks could contain multiple lanes of clips that merge to produce the final output. This would neatly handle complex cases like looping and launcher playback. Simply add a new lane to contain the post-performance capture. But even without this ideal, I'd be happy with ANY way to save lost ideas.

bump bump!

I'm really tempted to get bitwig with the 25% u-he offer but this is the one feature that makes me question if it's worth switching from live

I never feel the need to hit record working with midi tracks these days, going back to the old ways will be a bit of a bummer
