Is it possible to make Renoise always drop certain keys in an instrument into certain tracks in the pattern editor?

 

For example, if I had a kickdrum assigned to C4, a hihiat assigned to D4 and a snare assigned to E4, to have all the C4 keypresses recorded into track 1, all the D4 keypresses recorded into track 2 and all the E4 keypresses recorded into track 3?

You can do it on a per-instrument basis, through the options in the Sampler > MIDI Input tab. Basically we're talking MIDI note split maps. 

 

Also my tool xRules has some promise here, for doing it on the fly and on a per-sample basis. Lemme just see what I can come up with...

O.K, so I can send each of the midi controllers to separate channels, and assign those channels to tracks, but I wont be able to do the MIDI note split map on just one MIDI instrument without the xrules tool? (like each of the octaves on a midi keyboard going to a separate channel, and then dropping keypresses from each channel into separate tracks).

 

Or is the MIDI note split maps option only availiable in 3.1? I have 3.0

Yeah, that's essentially it. You can "split" a MIDI controller to play multiple instruments, but a single instrument can't be controlled using multiple controllers. 

There is no difference between 3.0 and 3.1 when it comes to this feature.

 

Renoise scripting/tools can be as surgical as we need them to be... as long as we're talking incoming "realtime MIDI" there aren't many limitations to think of.

NB: last week, I found a small issue in xRules that needs fixing, so tell me if you're interested in using a newer version of this tool.

Sorry to bug you with this again, but how exactly would I go about doing so?

 

Ive been through the MIDI section of the manual but I cant find it.

Head into the instruments "Sampler > Midi input" tab. Here you can define which channel and/or note range that the instrument should respond to.

So to make a split between, say, B3 and C4 you would define one instrument as having the C0-B3 range, and another having the C-4 and B-9.

Of course, they need to be set to the right channel as well, but if you're not planning to use this feature just leave it at the default.
