Does anybody know if there is a easy way to map the Battery VST drum kit to the QWERTY keyboard in Renoise?
If you use Battery as a VSTi in Renoise than you don’t need to do anything.
If you can’t trigger the samples with Q,W,… try lowering the keys for a few octaves.
If you mean Battery as a standalone… well, that’s not the Battery forum and we don’t give a f*ck!
… just kidding
You can use the computer keyboard for standalone too. Don’t know the details, tho.
If you mean mapping specific keys to specific samples/cells, you can do that, there’s the option inside Battery (map, or midi learn…), anyway the manual will tell you more.
VST keyboard up octave is assigned to “*” on the number pad. Mi ain’t got no number pad on the lappy and I can’t seem to get another key to assign to Octave Up. So that’s why it is quite important.
Also when I change the keymappings in Battery, they say “C3” but the qwerty don’t play it.
Basically I think this VST is fu**** going through MR QWERT.
I use a laptop too.
For octave up/down I use the keys ‘?’ and ‘pause’.
I don’t really use Battery in Renoise (I use the Renoise sampler), but I tried it now and had to go two octaves lower, so that the key ‘Q’ became the C-3 note.
The C-3 triggered the cell on the top left in Battery.
So yes, it works with the QWERTY.
are you aware of the fact that you can change the keyboard assignments for octave up/down actions?
Config => Keyb/Mouse
this way, you can choose a more comfortable key assignment for you, as ermi did
