Assiging Midi Controller Knobs To Vst Parameters

Ez all,

I’m using an MAudio Radium 49 Midi Keyboard/Controller with my version for Renoise (v1.5 - not upgraded to 1.5.1 yet).

What I can’t work out is how to assign the knobs on the keyboard so that they contol parameters on a VST.

Is it something that is specific to the VST or is it a standard thing in Renoise?

How do I set it up?

I have looked on the wikki thingy, and can’t find the information on it there.

The keyboard works fine for playing notes but I just can’t seem to work out how to get the sliders and knobs working.

Any help/advice much appreciated.



look for this button on the top right corner:

the rest should be straightforward

Cool thank man, I’ll check it out when I get home. B)

ok I tried that but it doesn’t seem to work.

any ideas?


ok it did work…


the vst i was experimenting with was the free (from Computer Music) CM101.

out of the 16 assignable controllers on the Radium 49 i could only see 2 that were controlling anything on the synth.

is it not possible to specifically assign a controller to a particular parameter on the vst?

a friend of mine suggested i look for something called ‘midi learn’ but i can’t see what he is on about.

any help is greatly appreciated.

yes, “MIDI learn” would be the way: look into your plugin’s manual for it.

Most of plugins have this function, which basically lets you assing a MIDI control change number to a VST parameter.

After that, you could also use ReNoise’s MIDICCDevice metadevice to control them.

Alternatively, you can directly use VSTAutomateDevice, but you couldn’t use your MIDI controller together with it
