For Bitwig I used Sampler.

- New in Bitwig 3.1 Pitch is a fundamental cornerstone of music, and Bitwig Studio 3.1 is tuned up with new exciting ways to work with pitch and scales. Based on Bitwig Studio's unique way to work with micro-pitch information, their new Note FX device Micro-pitch lets you dynamically retune notes, import existing scales and define your own.
Bitwig’s sampler has been the easiest to setup and work with in these tests. That may not translate to musical use, but it’s nice. I also love Bitwig’s audio settings panel. The way it communicates buffer sizes is wonderful.
Not everything about Bitwig is great, but the parts necessary to do this test are wonderful.
Reminder, don’t trust dweebs on the internet. Do the tests yourself, or at least double check my data.
