First of all we must be aware that there are multiple ways to control the volume of a midi channel .
1-velocity ( note specific )
2-channel/part volume out (cc7 )
3-expression (cc 11 ..not of use in this matter )
and lastly ..renoise specific ..the gain slider /read out box in the upper right corner of the instrument editor also affect velocity ...
Ok ..let's go
-Create an instrument 0 and select midi out 1( gain slider in upper right corner =0db =no velocity changes
-Create a midi cc device and adjust cc volume NR7 ( for that instrument )
-copy/ paste this device to a new track and point it to instrument 1 ( which isn't created yet ) , thus the midi cc device will read untitled ( no worries )
-Create a new instrument 1 and select midi out .2
Result ...the gain slider has decreased in value ...set by the midi controller ..
This has caused me numerous headaches as so why my midi channels all of a sudden sounded more quit .
It seems that the bug appears when the copy/paste and pointing of the new cc device is done BEFORE creating a new instrument , iow it automatically sends data to renoise instr.gain slider ..
Or ...maybe it's easier to say that midi cc7 affects renoise instrument's velocity (db slider ) when the instrument isn't created yet
