Hi all -
I’m not new to Renoise, and am ancient in terms of tracking - but…
I’ve always used tracking purely for sample based tracks, and currently - Ableton and Push 2 for everything else.
I have a lot of hardware synths and have several setups, with and without computers as part of them.
I am looking to add Renoise as the main midi sequencer in a previous hardware only setup.
Some info on what I have and what I am trying to do :
all synths and drum machines etc route audio to a mixing desk, so I don’t need audio returns back in to Renoise
I am using a single set of midi channels 1-16 out of Renoise, and back in
There’s about 8 synths I want to be able to send midi and receive midi for using Renoise
I want to know which devices I need to be able setup midi CC/NRPN mappings for each synth
Each synth will be on its own Renoise channel in a template, and I’d like each channel to have a midi mapping setup for the important midi parameters for each synth ( I don’t mind diving midi implementation charts and setting stuff up, but being able to dump controllers to Renoise would be good)
The synths I’m aiming to control in this little setup (in channel order from 1-16) are Yamaha RM1x(1-8), Novation Ultranova(9), MI Shruthi 4PM(10), MI Shruthi yellow magic(11), MI Shruthi mkII(12), Korg Volca Keys(13), Korg Volca Bass(14), Yamaha TX81Z(15), Roland System-1(16)
So - the goal is to have a Renoise template, with each channel containing a single midi channel, and a midi control device setup(cc mappings, patch changes etc).
I’ve only recently come back to Renoise and have an Ableton Push 2 and launchpad mini that I use in Ableton a lot. Is it possible to integrate these with Renoise at all? I usually do pretty much everything via the Push 2 on a larger synth setup, but it would be good if I could use the Push in Renoise, even if it is just for entering midi notes.
So - lots of questions, sorry! But I hope someone can help with at least bits of it
