I’m a new user to Renoise and got my first problem, that I’m not able to solve - maybe I did something wrong?
I use the renoise tool “Duplex” to connect my midi controller (controller name: Akai APC40, Renoise runs on Linux). In the Duplex preferences I checked the ceckbox “Pass unhandled MIDI messages to Renoise” but it seems to have no effect.
Steps to reproduce:
physically connect a MIDI-controller (e.g. the APC40)
Start Duplex: Tools -> Duplex -> select any template that uses less buttons than the hardware MIDI-controller e.g. APC40
in the Duplex Browser: Select the Midi-Controller as In- and Out-device.
in the Duplex Browser: Settings -> check checkbox “Pass unhandled MIDI messages to Renoise”
activate MIDI-Mapping (=Learn Mode) in Renoise and select any parameter of a plugin (=red areas).
press a button on the MIDI-controller that is not used by Duplex
The pressed button on the MIDI-controller should be mapped to the selected plugin parameter.
Pressed button is not mapped to the selected plugin parameter.
However, the MIDI-Monitor of Renoise shows the MIDI message of the pressed button (independently from the checkbox “Pass unhandled MIDI messages to Renoise”).
My current workaround:
I use Duplex to connect my controller. I make a second connection via Jack (or alternatively via Renoise Preferences/MIDI/In device X: my controller). Now I can also use the “MIDI MAPPING” of Renoise to map buttons. But than a button used by Duplex also triggers a sample sound of the currently selected instrument. So it’s not really a useful workaround (especially as I would need to use Renoise+Duplex for live performance).
Any suggestion/idea is welcome!
