Launch Quantization is a great tool but limits one to strict 4 / 8 Bar arrangements, a single transition bar between two Parts will throw it off for the remainder of the arrangement. A possibility to set “force-reset” points that will be handled as a new origin for launch quantization, could solve this problem.
These points should be settable in the arranger timeline and inside the clip launcher.
Allowing to leave 4 / 8 Bar arrangements by inserting single or two bar transitions in-between parts and still being able to use launch quantization
Launch Quantization is an important part of Bitwigs clip based workflow. This is one fundamental flaw in this that can be resolved like this.
Clip Launcher Workflow: One can simply manually jump using the mouse to correct the timing.
Arranger Workflow: Here one can use a Workaround using Time Signatur changes. E.g. An extra bar after an 8 4/4 bar loop can be achieved by setting the last bar to 8 / 4. The Launch Quantization (and snapping) behaves as expected, following the number of bars, not beats.
Clip Launcher Workflow: The workaround above could be automated using API scripting. But since this involves messing around with the timeline this is quite an awkward solution.
Arranger Workflow: Not that I know off.
No, this is fundamental Bitwig logic, no VST can interfere.
