Bitwig should have a “Core Audio System Device” audio device that follows the system settings and automatically restarts the audio engine for less frustrating user experience. “No Audio Device Selected”, “Audio Settings Changed” and “Audio System No Longer Available” messages can be completely avoided by automatically restarting the audio system
On a Mac when audio device is disconnected, it crashes the Bitwig audio system. It should detect that and switch to the operating system selected device without user input. I have to manually reselect audio output (they become inactive unless I select “Output Device: None” first and then select the new output device) and click “Activate Audio Engine” each time I switch from headphones to laptop speakers and each time I disconnect my headphones after connecting an audio interface. I’ve used other audio software where this is not a problem and the default system device is continuously available.
Frustration and pointless clicking when changing audio devices while switching from mobile to stationary laptop working setup
Makes core product more user friendly and robust
Many DAWs and Bitwig on Windows has better support for this
