Grid module - Change Gate

Module for Grid that outputs 1 whenever input signal is not staying at the same value, tracking input changes per sample.


What problem(s) would this feature resolve?

doing this is a bit tedious:

because you have to carefully dial in delay time with fractions of milliseconds to get expected results, and that doesn’t guarantee that on different sample rate settings it will work the same.
we don’t have option to do this (compare signals) on per-sample basis. plus it’s 2 modules vs 1

additionally, because we have to delay signal for comparison, the output is inherently ever so slightly delayed too, which can be a nuisance for further logic setup.

How does this feature fit in Bitwig as a product?

Just yet another module into Grid’s collection

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

not like this (described above)

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

we don’t have module/device editor, so no.

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

no, at least definitely not in polyphonic way.

Are there other products that offer this feature?

Some modular environments do, for example in Usine:

Yeah, this is a bit of a bummer to do ATM and every other node based tool I’ve ever used has it, like Loomer Architekt, Reaktor, Tooll3, you name it. The workaround isn’t obvious and has it’s own issues as laid out above.
