Does anyone know if it is possible to send cv messages from within Renoise?

wondering if this is possible, I do some interesting things with the gatekeeper plugin in bitwig, can it be done in Renoise ?

CV is voltage. How does Bitwig send electrical signals?

I use the gatekeeper plugin by infected mushroom to output cv and connect it to a bitwig native audio rate modulator, in the modulator preferences I choose the gatekeeper plugin and it outputs MSEG messages which I use to control other things such as plugins, I have no idea how I could go about using this signal information in renoise but I think somehow it is possible

So this is all software emulation in Bitwig, not actual control voltage being sent to any hardware?

I guess so yes, it emits a little click tone, that I mute when controlling other things with it, I still have not figured out if I could use it in renoise

There is midi mapping within renoise.

Wow, as a test I made a Midi Instrument Control meta device on a blank track with its output sent an internal midi bus/loop. Then I set Renoise midi input to that internal bus and used the “MIDI MAP” to assign this parameter to, for example BPM ( could be anything ). It worked. I believe its possible to modulate anything if your plugin outputs midi.

but CV isn’t midi …thats why the confusion exists…

Ok great thanks for the tip, Gatekeeper also allows for sending midi cc so it works as a parameter controller woohoo!!! once again renoise surprises me with it’s flexibility

You can send CV from inside Bitwig and a lot of other DAWs with a DC-coupled soundcard. Hell, if it has DC-coupled ins too, you can record CV also :slight_smile:
