Oscilloscope integration in MSEG editor window

As the title suggest, I think next logical thing to do with new MSEG’s to make them really useful is to add oscilloscope option to the background of the editor window, with at least 2 sidechain input options with different colors. Scope would automatically sync to whatever timing MSEG module/modulator is set to, to match what it’s doing to the chunk of audio. Therefore one input would be used to display original waveform, and secondary input would display result of applied shape. For some module like Transfer it would make sense if it was syncing to zero crossing, so showing the single cycle when possible. Even Scrawl might also benefit from this, showing how it would actually reproduce the shape into the rendered waveform, as well as show how it looks with phase modulation applied.

What problem(s) would this feature resolve?

It would start to feel like actually well thought-out tool instead of having to make elaborate setup with oscilloscopes that can’t even show more than 2 inputs, so you can’t show shape and pre/post waveform at the same time, not to mention having to tune the oscilloscope every time is also a pain in the ass. so all in all actually using MSEGs right now is nowhere near as good as using something like Shaperbox.

How does this feature fit in Bitwig as a product?

Would fit like where it belongs in first place.

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

Using plugins instead.

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 integration, just using plugins instead of tools that were supposed to replace those plugins.

Are there other products that offer this feature?

Any proper MSEG based plugin really, Shaperbox is most obvious example.
