As stated above. Either i can't find it or it isn't there.

In Ableton Live there is this function that you can specify for the selected clip(s). This means it jumps straight to the same clip position in the next clip you launch without losing the sync. Maschine does the same thing when switching patterns.

Or in addition to the very cool new "return to last clip" "Next action", "continue last clip" (legato) would be also very cool.

Guys, really, two years gone since you added it to your wishlist. Do you have plans at least? I really want to start using bitwig instead of ableton(

This is a feature I'm missing almost every day I work in BWS. Hoping the devs are reading this thread and will implement clip legato.

Not yet, perhaps soon: Added this to our wishlist.

The only things stops me using Bitwig - no legato - not possible to switch between clips in the middle of a bar(


answered Mar 06 '16 at 21:50 by jinek (122)

Nope, after two years it still isnt there. I have bitwig since they launched it and this is still killing me. Please give us legaaaatooo!

Why don't you add it to your "TO-DO" list as well !

Completely agree.

I just wonder if some features needed to be left out when since so many ideas were already taken from Live. Legato is a very much missed feature with me as well and I hope it gets implemented.

Let's keep this idea alive. It is super useful.


answered Nov 03 at 20:56 by Holon_Mundi (51)

Absolutely. this is definitely a much needed feature in Bitwig!


answered Aug 24 '16 at 11:41 by academik (31)

Yes, I too support this wish! Legato clip playback mode is the only current reason I sometimes Close down BWS to fire up Live these days, and I dearly miss it in Bitwig.

(plus that I'd love Bitwig's "Deactivate Track" to also free up used RAM memory besides reclaiming CPU cycles, but that's another thread. Two modest wishes from an occasional Bitwig user that can't wait to start using BW for all projects)
