I have a very specific problem with instrument keyzones.
I’m trying to make my Alesis Forge drum kit work over MIDI with a set of multilayered drum samples in Renoise.
I’ve set all samples to “One-Shot” trigger and “Continue” NNA.
I have assigned the samples to keyzones and when I play the drums, the correct samples are triggered.
So far so good.
Now the problem is that I want the Hihat pedal to cut off the open hihat sample - so that when I press the hihat pedal the pedal sample is triggered and the open hihat sample is muted.
The only way I could make this somehow work is to assign all hihat samples to the same Mute Group, but then I can’t play the Open Hihat fast anymore because each hit cut’s off the previous note too.
Is it possible to do what I need with Renoise?
I’d be super happy about any tips.
The drumkits’ crash can be muted by grabbing it with the hand. This generates two “Poly Aftertouch” MIDI messages, one with value “127” and the other one with “0”.
Can I use this MIDI event somehow to mute the crash samples in Renoise?
