Hey Bitwig Team,

you are not alone, also using the hopefully temporally solution of antic604 https://answers.bitwig.com/questions/11 ... in-sampler

I must say i don't like the sound of the pitch shifter device. There are some rare cases where its interesting in a fx chain but in general i think it sounds horrible.
I also don't get why the new sampler has no versatile time-stretch mode from the get-go. I mean the big point-update feature before the sampler was the new timestretching in the sequencer. (Which i also find is pretty cumbersome to use btw.)
I hope the usability of the whole tempo-detection/pitch-shifting/timestretching(in sampler and sequencer) gets some rework.
But i fear it's blocked by backward-compatibility issues. I allways loved the way ableton is working in that part.

I get where you're coming from, but for counterpoint balance, I strongly prefer Bitwig's clip-level stretching mechanics over Ableton's. The only thing Bitwig is still missing is a good "Textures" stretching mode that will let you adjust both grain and format. "Textures" is a very key creative warping mode in Ableton that most of the bass music producers I know all rely on for certain types of detailing work. It's odd that they threw a close equivalent to "Textures" mode directly in the 2.4 Sampler, but they didn't also add it to the clip warping options! I'd really love to see Bitwig plug that gap and implement it into the set of clip warping options.

Also, I do totally agree with you that they should play catch-up with Ableton's Simpler and get a true "Warp" option into Bitwig's Sampler ASAP. That's now the biggest "loss" if you are mulling over whether to migrate from Ableton to Bitwig.

Yes agreed, I moved from Ableton recently and this is really the feature I miss the most, other than the large library of very useful M4l sequencers and unique effects and the complete Push2 compatibility.

Since Bitwig does not read the forum, your (for sure useful) feature request will likely go unnoticed.

Sending them an email as well as posting here will!
