I’m putting together a live performance where I want to trigger Renoise patterns using my Android smartphone mounted to my guitar. I want to basically loop pattern 0 until I tell pattern 1 to start playing – like clicking the leftmost buttons on the pattern editor.
It seems like there are lots of ways to do this, but I’ve never been able to successfully make it work. I can’t find an app for Android that plays nice with Renoise’s OSC features.
I don’t know if I should hardline USB from my phone to my Mac laptop or if I can do it more elegantly via WiFi or Bluetooth?
Also, I don’t know if I should be using Duplex, Grid Pie, or simply mapping MIDI clicks on the keyboard for triggering patterns. What do you do?
Can anyone point me in the direction of a good tutorial for doing this?
