I'm having a bit of WTF moment here. They cannot be serious about this... Bitwig doesn't have a takes system? If you record a loop it just overwrites the previous loop! I googled "how to choose a take" because I couldn't figure out how to choose one, and the reason seems to be simply that there are no takes. You can overwrite or overdub and that's it. What in the name of fuck! I am just absolutely floored, how can this be real? Even fucking Garageband has takes!
edit: Oh my god it's true, it's on the feature wishlist:
This software is 4 years old... this is not a good sign.
You do realize Ableton doesn't have a takes system, either.... but your upset with Bitwig for not having it? How old is Ableton?
And in what universe do you live that you just assume any DAW includes a Takes system? They've been slowly added to various DAWs over the past 10 years, yes. But your level of entitlement here, you'd think including a Takes system was the same as, say, allowing VST plugins to be used.
Ableton folks have been asking for it for years, no dice. Bitwig, it's still a baby, 4 years is nothing. It's only the old-school, more "traditional" DAWs that have takes -- Logic, ProTools, Studio One. Oh, and Reason has it, that's cool.
Ableton also lacks Bounce in Place despite every other DAW having this feature by now....there's always SOMETHING missing, is my point. It's how the DAW world works. None of them are perfect. But your WTF / OH MY GOD moment about Bitwig, the newest of all the DAWs out there, not having this particular feature... you should probably just relax. Features get rolled out slowly, or not at all. Business as usual. Bitwig wasn't born fully formed.
