I’m looking to do some live coding with another dude. He would send osc messages over the net to renoise on my pc. I want to program drums and stuffs. One problem: if I engage edit mode to program some drums in, renoise records also these notes from the other laptop (even when not playing transport, not following the playhead, etc). Can I make it so that only the local edits get recorded?
I don’t think so. When Renoise receives MIDI or OSC notes for direct playback, and edit mode is enabled, they do get recorded.
This would include MIDI/OSC note messages generated internally, by scripting (otherwise you could just write a simple proxy that would receive external messages and echo them back internally).
An alternative solution would be to come up with a tool that could receive the messages and then write them directly into the song, with a position according to the timestamp of each message. More involved, obviously, but perhaps also more flexible?
Yeah if I had had the time I would’ve probably figured out a way to edit the pattern using the keyboard without edit mode…
