A MIDI in module in The Grid to select either external controllers or cross-track routing. Being able of sending different MIDI signals to different modules in The Grid would allow to have different modules controlled by different controllers/sequencers in the same instance.
Together with “Output to new chain” module in the Grid, it could eliminate the need to create different tracks with different instances of The Grid loaded in.
No matter how complex a Grid patch is, Bitwig producers are limited to play it with one MIDI input only. If they want to bring in more controllers or external sequencers, they need more tracks with separate Poly Grid instruments.
The Grid is one of Bitwig’s top selling points (a sound designer’s dream). This request would make The Grid as complete and self-contained as possible, improving flexibility and taking full advantage of Bitwig’s modular nature.
In Max for Live, the MIDI-in module can be set to receive signal from any MIDI channel available on your system.
