Recently I was trying to finish a song, working on getting vocal levels right.
I needed to jump between two different sections of the song to compare how the vocals sounded in each.
Scrolling and clicking wasn't working well for me. So I wrote a Ruby script to to use OSC to manage jumping to a given pattern.
It's small. Source is here: https://gitlab.com/snippets/30828
Runs from the command line. Requires Ruby to be installed. You need to edit the file to change the Renoise OSC info.
rns-jumper.rb 12 # Jump to pattern 12 rns-jumper.rb 2 1 # Jump to pattern 2 and turn on pattern looping rns-jumper.rb 8 0 # Jump to pattern 8 and turn off pattern looping
I use my own variant of the osc-ruby gem but you can use the original as well (since this code does not use any of my extensions)
