I need to map a knob in a controller to behave like the combo filter on a Pioneer DJM Mixer:

  • 12 o'clock state applies no filter (neutral)

  • rotating the knob to the left removes high and mid frequencies

  • rotating the knob to the right removes low and mid frequencies

Can this be done natively with Bitwig (without a VST)?

I tried creating a macro and assigning it to control a hi-pass and a low-pass filter in Bipolar mode, but I cannot get half the range of the macro knob to control hi-pass filter cutoff while the other half controls the low-pass filter cutoff.


Sorry it wasn't the good preset, try this one:

Amazing. Thank you so much.

Is it possible to make the macro so that when the knob is at the 12 o'clock no filter is applied but when the knob is all the way to the left/right the sound is completely filtered out (similar to how it would be on a DJM mixer)?

You mean that it isn't possible to do this?

When I throw the preset on a any of the Bitwig software instruments (E-Clap for example) and turn the macro preset knob all the way to the left or right it a good amount of the sound is left (the mid frequencies it sounds like).

This is slightly less so if I switch to the sharper curve on the 2 filters in the FX layer.

Do you still have this preset? The link seems to be expired... Thanks!
