Ideas for better automations

a way for get rid of overlapping point in the automation section and make easy shapes of automation

What problem(s) would this feature resolve?

It happen often to have 2 points of automation at the same position, and it could be a pain to edit automation especially after recording it live ( it creates a lot a point)

How does this feature fit in Bitwig as a product?

We could imagine an option after having selected the area of the automation lane we work with to

  • clear all the double points
  • adjust the points to be lines / shapes

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

no, I don’t think so

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

I don’t think so

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


Are there other products that offer this feature?

for the shapes, ableton live

@matth Are you talking about the automation editor panel?

Do you really get 2 points of automation in the same position, or is the overlap solves by increasing the zoom?

Also, have you tried to select & delete unnecessary points in the automation editor panel? Also move the points (pressing the shift key for higher precision)?
