Automating Effect Enable

Hey guys,

I’ve been using Renoise since about version 1.8, and I’m absolutely dumbfounded how I worked without things like the velocity device and key tracking device to automate effect chains.

I have a bit of a problem though. I’m trying to enable and disable a delay effect when the note is hit (at a certian velocity range) and disable it when the note off occurs. I know I can manually do this using the hex effect column, but I’d like it to be handled automatically for live performances.

Any ideas?



Hrm… Well, you can modulate the send amount of a delay line with a velocity device? Delays should be pretty light computationally. Not sure how to turn it straight on and off.

I know this isn’t exactly what you were looking for, but it might get the job done?

Yeah, as cenharmonic said you could just turn the send down to 0 rather than turning the delay on and off completely.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the replies; Unfortunately, just cutting the send won’t do…

I’m trying to recreate the InstaJungle VST plugin as an effect chain using delays at 100% feedback, cutting the send after an allotted amount of time. I have experimented with bringing the feedback all the way back to 0, but then the delay buffer doesn’t empty all the way if I want to trigger the 100% feedback again shortly thereafter. When the effect is enabled/disabled, it clears the delay buffer.

Perhaps I’m going about it the wrong way. I know effects weren’t meant to be used this way, but I figured it was worth a shot. I’ve been doing a lot of the direct digital synthesis in renoise recently and that’s really opened my eyes to the true power behind effect chains.
