I'm pretty sure it never used to do this but lately it's become utterly unusable as I can't do much for it pausing every other minute to rescan midi devices.
Any ideas as to why?
PS I'm on a windows 7 machine and not a laptop. M audio delta soundcard. Should that matter..
I can only think of the following:
- Go to: Renoise:Preferences/MIDI: "Auto-rescan" when hot-plugging devices". Is this checkbox enabled?
Is it possible that you have a bad connection with the USB cable or the USB connection ports? Are they loose, dirty, that can cause a bad connection?
Maybe in this scenario Renoise rescans the devices that are reconnected. Review the USB ports and the USB cables you use. It could be a very subtle connection failure. It could even be an internal failure of your MIDI device.
Make tests. If necessary, uncheck the checkbox... With the box enabled you should not have problems, unless Renoise contains a related bug.
You should mention your connected MIDI devices, your motherboard model. Maybe someone with more experience knows how to help you. Personally I recommend you use the rear ports of the motherboard, not front extensions. It also uses the original cables, not additional USB cable extensions.
