Hi everybody, I am just beginning to learn how to use bitwig. I don't find any explanation about how importing midi files. I want to use phrases composed in musecore. Thanks in advance for tours answers. Nath

Just drag the MIDI file to Bitwig - either from Bitwig's browser or from your desktop, explorer / finder

Hi To be more precise:

1, Import plain midi files (if not stored with your project locally) into \Users[yourName]\Music\music_data\bitwig_library\Clips (windows).

2.Open bitwig, oben the browser, section for "Clips". Then search for a midi file name or drill down the folder structure.

3.Once found, drag it into your target track.

I see that "clips" can have metadata- so the full options for tagging, using collections, meta search etc is available :) So you can add your chord type, tempi etc and then later just search for that. - see also the thread about "Smart Collections" for more insight into management of plenty of midi files:

best regards, Former

One thing that is disappointing though is that you can audition a midi clip, but instead of playing on the selected track, it will play simple sine tones. This is especially unhelpful if you are auditioning midi drum loops.
