Hello Djeroek and OopsIFly
Thank you! Your assistance has allowed me to move forward. I can make the distortion tool work inside Reaper, along with a couple others.
One thing which was confusing me, and which might help other new users, is about how to create a new sample that CDP can use for the output. I was just clicking on the "+" symbol next to the instrument slots in the Renoise sampler. What is important, is to choose or create an instrument slot, but then in the window where the waveform is represented (where the text says "No Sample Selected"), right click and choose "Create Sample". Now you can use this empty sample as an output for CDP.
So at least I know that CDP can work for me in Renoise running on Linux. But at this point, I can only get three to work (distortion, fastconv and reverb). The reasons for not working are varied. Some, I notice, are present in the Renoise CDP Tool drop down menu but are not present in the binaries I compiled (eg mchiter).
But most frustrating for me is this error message (see image below):
This time I am also not having any success in the terminal:
x@x:~/Binaries/CDP/Release$ ./blur blur $HOME/cdptest/radtoolds.wav $HOME/cdptest/radtoolds/output/radtooldsblur.wav 100
Application doesn't work with this type of infile.
I have already added to my $HOME/.bashrc the lines:
# For the Renoise CDP tool export CDP_SOUND_EXT=wav
Do you have any ideas about this? I'll also ask at the CDP forum as well.
Thank you so much for helping me get this far. Already having a lot of fun with the (few) tools that I can use.
