will this ever be a thing in Bitwig? i hope this comes soon, even as a separate device

couldn't you map a controller to the volume fader of one track and map it inverted to the volume of another track?

i guess you could but wouldn't it be easier to just make an A/B crossfader?

No, because that would require development time that would otherwise be used to add features that don't already have a valid workaround as way to achieve the same behavior and results immediately. Which means a simple crossfader like you're asking for will probably not arrive before the modular environment is released. When that happens, an A/B crossfader would likely show up online sometime within the first week or so, if not already included as one of the examples of how to start building modular devices.

In the meantime, if you're still looking for a way to crossfade, the solution above is simple, straightforward, elegant, and even might inspire additional ways to set up controller mappings that could be musically interesting and productive in practice.

Wow this is pretty old, and it has in fact been added already :)

Nice ! Do you know if they have also added a clip playing mode that functions the same as Ableton's "Legato mode"? I haven't been able to find it yet, and according to the most recent message on here from Nov.2016 it hasn't been added yet. If it hasn't, at least using the crossfader could replicate some of the effect, without having to mess with the volume control and inverted mappings. I just started using Bitwig again.. thanks for the update !

guyz, i dunno why u talkin about cross fading somethings...........

BITWIG Studio is the pêrfect suit for CREATING MJUSIC, SOUNDS or MORE.


if u want to DJ-crossfade, just use a regular DJ S3ETUP instead........ -.-

(or use both)... to make your way.......

but never forget thats its just a controller setup.

(when u need hard srtuufss...)

to answer Operator' .... fastly ?


SEND your TWO tracks in TWO SENDS CHANNEL..........

(automations are here for that.....)


temp solution.......... LOL

or you could just use the new crossfade feature :) it's not just for dj's anymore

good point about the using the sends like that..

i guess it all depends on what sound and workflow you want to achieve.. each approach uses slightly different kinds of parameters, and will result in variably different nuances of movement in the resulting sound.
