To control external instruments within Bitwig Studio you must use Scaler as a VST plugin and route Scaler’s MIDI output onto the track of the instrument you wish to control.
- Load Scaler VST onto an instrument track and the instrument you wish to control on a second track.
- Select Scaler’s track and change its output in order to send the notes to the track you wish to control: “Notes to Tracks > Tracks > [Your Track]”
- Scaler MIDI output is now routed to your instrument.

this is even easier possible in Bitwig. just drop your synth behind Scaler in the chain for simple setups:
This is way easier! I am used to DAW having complicated routing setup so I did not even try this. Thanks for sharing.
Bitwig 2.5 user, latest version of scaler.
I have tried it both ways, as a chain and as a separate instrument with routed outputs.
I have no output.
??? I don’t have this problem with other plugins. Cthulu for example. What am I missing here…
make sure to use the VST2 version of Scaler for MIDI routing.
