In addition, with the help of the “Detail Editor”, you can edit multiple tracks in the same view, as well as stretch, split, pitch, pan, copy, reverse, add, move, and arrange audio effects or parts of tracks as you wish.
With the help of the Bitwig Studio's “Dynamic Object Inspector”, you have the possibility to select and edit multiple notes and events. Furthermore, Bitwig Studio also enables you to easily modify any of the built-in audio devices or build your very own.
