The bitwigClipLauncher COMP serves as an interface for controlling clip playback and clip attributes in Bitwig's clip launcher context. Users begin by choosing which track they are interested in; from there they can access the clip slots associated with that track, and subsequently decide to perform actions or read/modify the properties of a given launcher clip.

Pintrack - Indicates whether the current selection is pinned to the current track. If the selection is un-pinned, the selection will follow whatever track is currently selected in the Bitwig UI.
