Before I start coming up with a complex workflow of my own, I would like to know if there is a simple Renoise function to do this :


I have an external synth recieving MIDI from Renoise. For that I created a sample-less instrument with MIDI out and line in, so that I can hear that synth playing through the instrument's track. (Right?)


Now I would like to record the audio from that synth. Then I would like to play the continuous recorded audio instead, on the same track, or a track sharing the same effect chain, and mute the outgoing MIDI notes, but keep them in case I want to modify them and record again later (the equivalent of freezing a VSTi in a regular DAW).


All this in order to make my synth available to play a completely different part.


I know how to do this "manually", of course: create an adjacent track within a same group, etc. Create another instrument containing the recording as a sample, etc, etc.


But I wonder, is there a more automatic function intended for doing just this ?


Do I really need to create another instrument ? And another track ?


Thanks in advance
