Pitch adjustments snaps by semitones when pressing CTRL

Possibility to adjust pitch by semitones (instead of tenths) by pressing CTRL when dragging up & down on a knob. Most frequent scales are defined by semitone steps, and therefore users often want adjust pitch by one or more semitones.

What problem(s) would this feature resolve?

Hitting semi-tone adjustments regularly with the mouse isn’t easy. In practice, it is quicker to type the value. Doing this often interrupts the flow.

How does this feature fit in Bitwig as a product?

Bitwig puts an emphasis in productivity. This request would be an unobtrusive addition.

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

Having great mouse accuracy or typing the value in manually.

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?


Are there other products that offer this feature?

At least Surge has it.
