Yes I know that, I am a registerd user. But I use some midi synths and compressors so renoise goes through my mixing desk together with my midi instruments and than has to go to my audio inputs and record it somehow.
yes the midi hardware outputs has to go into the input of the audio interface. Then each track can be recorded individually into samples via the recording section in the sample editor. After the recording is done simply mute the channels for the midi synths and create new tracks and put the recorded samples att the beginning of the song. If the sync start & stop is set to pattern in the record section and the recording is done from start to end the recordings will be in perfect sync
I’’'m sorry I didn’t make myself clear. I don’t mix anything in renoise, I use my mixingdesk for that. Everything (my samples from renoise and my midi instruments) goes through my mixing-desk and has to be recorded somehow.
I have 8 outputs on my audio interface and each renoise track has its own fader, if you know what I mean.
After I put my sweet song in the mix the outs of my mixdesk go into the in of my audiointerface, and that way into my computer again, where I somehow have to record it.
Get a tape-, or dat-recorder or as said record it in another app like cubase on another computer from the outputs on the mixer. I think it is very hard to get one computer running two audio applications flawless while sequencing and recording at the same time. Maybe with two audio interfaces though…
One solution could be to run renoise without Asio driver. Instead the standard windows driver for example. The asio driver will then be “free” for sound forge to use.
Everything will be played with latency though, but at least everything will have equal latency. Dont know how much live fading you are planning but the latency might be a problem.
Okey now I know why I was confused Sadly I think that an asio driver can only be used by one app at a time under windows… correct me if I’m wrong but after all windows is well known for it’s lack of audio handling.
I havn’t managed to run renoise and cubase at the same time ever. When cubase has taken the asio driver I can’t get a single sound out of Renoise until I shut down Cubase and reinitialize the driver in Renoise. And also I can’t get no sound out of media player or websites if I have a asio app running.
the issue with sampling in renoise in this situation is the signal coming back in will be off because of the latency between renoise your external hardware and it coming back in again. along with the external mixing being done. the line-in for renoise was never designed for this type of thing.
you could buy another soundcard, and use it to record everything into another program, or even another renoise instance.
speaking of another renoise instance, have you tried that using the recording feature while running another instance of renoise?
