i recently bought an mpk49, so now it is really fun to make music on renoise. But the only thing i miss so much is the abillity to move in pattern editor up/down like with the cursors on qwerty keyboard… is there some trick to do that with midi controller? also - cut and paste functions… i know that it is very hard to edit some things without mouse - like to select notes in pattern and cut it - but is there a chance to send cut/paste commands from midi controller? Or if not maybe there is some third-party soft that will translate midi commands into keyboard keys? Something for OSX?
Have you tried the Duplex template for the MPK49?
If you really need specific midi controls connected to navigation controls, they can also be custom tailored using the Lua scripting API which is the best option to do it btw:Third party tools are not or are limitedly capable of sending keycommands to Renoise.
name = "Global:Tools:JumpNextSequence:Function:Jump to next sequence",
invoke = function(message)
if (message:is_switch()) then
local position = renoise.song().transport.playback_pos
position.line = 1
position.sequence = renoise.song().selected_sequence_index +1
if position.sequence > #renoise.song().sequencer.pattern_sequence then
position.sequence = 1
renoise.song().transport.playback_pos = position
Hit ctrl + M, unfold the “Available and Active Mappings” list and then go to Global:Tools:JumpNextSequence:Function:Jump to next sequence and learn your specific midi-keys their CC messages.
Then adjust the function jump_to_next_sequence to your needs what you want it to do when you press the midi-key you made it learn.
