Hi Folks,

Currently it is possible to see all outputs/devices of the drummachine in the bitwig mixer. Wouldn't be nice if you could export those outputs as seperate tracks?

Assuming this isn't possible now (and if it is, I would like to hear how!), I'd guess it would be a nice minor improvement of Bitwig studio.

What do you think?

Kindest Regards,


Easiest way to achieve this is to copy the drum machine to another track (you can also do this in an existing one) and then drag the chains out of the drum machine container one by one.

Since this could be a lot of work depending on the amount of chains, i've recorded your feature request to our wishlist.

You want just the audio signal, or the notes and devices as well (as in split the drum rack into individual instrument tracks)?

If audio only, then you can extract audio from individual drum pads into separate tracks by placing Audio Receiver into those tracks and selecting the pads as inputs - as seen here around 0:40:

+1 for this - it's really a sadly missed feature.

This issue was brought up long ago and till today its been difficult to do this ! I absolutely love the software , but this a workflow killer !! i want to separate the drum rack into individual instrument track and bounce them to mix ..can this be addressed with priority ? or is there a workflow i am missing ?

A temporary (I'd hope) workaround, but you could create a number of empty audio tracks corresponding with the number of Drum Machine slots you want to have separated and then put Audio Receiver on each of them, pointing it to the appropriate pre-fader place in the Drum Machine. Then just mute the Drum Machine track and drums - now in separate audio tracks - should still be playing.

Thanks for the reply ! I did something similar after I posted on the forum ..I duplicated the track that has the drum machine,dropped a audio receiver and chose one of the drum cell(snare,kick etc )followed by bouncing the track ..did that for every element in drum machine ..was not as difficult as I thought it would be ..cheers
