Re: Bitwig built in effects/devices
This is totally subjective of course, but most of the build in devices are very good, some even alot better imho. I miss operator too, but things like the filter (ladder) and chorus and delays are way better imho. Chorus has that juno 106 feel, everything sounds nice and wide thru it. In ableton, the chorus was a mess.
The polysynth is very capable and i'd prefer it to abletons analog anyday. It can morph thru waveforms, it has poly lfo's, nice filters and easier to operate.
The reverb can be pretty nice too. If you want big spaces, set it to hall and increase the decay time. Put it on a send fx and add a little chorus. The room algoritm is more like a plate reverb, good for percussion. Abletons reverb does have some more params but to me they are actually quite alike.
The delay is my favorite. You can even put other fx inside the feedback path, which makes it unbeatable.
