Hey there!

Been writing a lot of new songs recently (you can find the already released tracks at www.planetdamage.com/music ) and I'm planning to take this to the stage. Thinking about using Renoise as a DAW/performance core and adding some sort of a live hardware to work with. Have you guys used Maschine JAM/Studio/Mikro with Renoise? If so, is that a valid and working piece of setup? If not, what other gear would you recommend or have good experience with?

(Especially interested in the synergy of Renoise and Maschine JAM but at this point anything goes, really.)

 I use my hardwaresynth, a Roland SH-201, not just as a synthesizer, i also can use it as a MIDI controller. All the knobs and fader's can send/receive MIDI signals to/from the DAW. Works like a charm. Here's a pic of that Synth:

Normally it is a pure synth. But all its knobs and fader can send MIDI CC to inside the DAW via USB. So i can also use the knobs and faders to control all kind of things inside a DAW like with external MIDI controllers. I mainly map it to macro controls inside Renoise. But it's not very portable because of it's size.


If you look for some gear, which is also well portable, then i can recommend these two little boys:






They are also very usable for live performances.

I got a Maschine Jam but I've haven't used it in renoise too much, I tried mapping it out now, I'm gonna give it a few more go this weekend.


yeah I can change sequence with it, cNJK58E.gif

I can mute tracks with it 9VKJlbM.gif

I can turn on and off filters with it, R5mbDdJ.gif

and I can play notes with it. 


So yeah the basics works, the controller editor is also really good so I can imagine you can do pretty much anything with it, one neat thing to note is that you change matrix page so you can map a insanely huge amount of stuff if you want.,ss there anything you want me to try out?
