I cannot say how much Renoise rocks! This app is awesome and blows everything I came across from the very beginning of Soundtracker/Protracker over to the most recent DAWs(Logic/Protools/Cubase etc.
Personally, after using the demo for a while now, I would say Renoise is the only piece of software that really deserves the term “completely focused on musicians” after the last version (v4) of Teijo Kinnunen´s OctaMED Pro. But that´s my own point of view, grown over many years, and as said, totally subjective
I am so looking forward to be creative with this awesome app and it only slowly dawns on me what´s all possible with LUA
But now guys to the topic. I have a little problem:
I am using an original apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad (the aluminium one - My link )
Unfortunately its function keys F13, F15, F16, F17, F18, and F19 cannot be assigned to a function in Renoise preferences. I could only manage to map F14 (recognized as “scroll” by the new assignment box in preferences/keys) to a function. Basicly the others are not recognized in the preferences/keys/new assignment box when you press any of them.
All other keys work without any problem.
The position of F14 is as far as I remember the aquivalent of a PC´s “scroll/lock” key, but I can be mistaken.
I assume it is a Renoise keybinding/Apple keyboard layer compatibility issue.
Anyone else experiencing this issue with the higher F keys on MacOS or Windows?
My current System config:
Renoise 2.6.1 demo version, 1.8GHz iMac G5, OSX 10.4.11, OSX 10.5.6
I hope someone here can help me out.
