Change color for outlet of Select in/Merge according to input used


Would be really neat if cable color could dynamically change on the output of Merge or Select in module, and perhaps even for Blend, literally blending between colors. The main goal is to dynamically display those changes also on Oscilloscope, to see better what parts were switched across time. Other than that, even just looking at the cable could give better feedback at what’s going on at glance.

here are few example visualisations of what I mean:

What problem(s) would this feature resolve?

Inability to display different parts of signal in different color across time in oscilloscope

How does this feature fit in Bitwig as a product?

As UI/UX improvement.

Is there already an alternative way to achieve this on Bitwig?


Could it be implemented using Bitwig components or APIs, without Bitwig team’s support?


Could it be provided by a VST or something else reasonably integrated with Bitwig?

No, not for Grid

Are there other products that offer this feature?

Haven’t seen this anyhwere

I’ve updated the post with couple of mockups to visualize the idea.
