I am not a coder, programmer or synth engineer so bare with me. Also, I’m sorry if this was already brought up before.
I would like to have a meta device which inputs a value (from keytracking device or whatever), operates (by parameters value and operator - *, /, +, -, %) and sends the output. This would for instance be a way to make semi random modulations, which still have consistency to them.
If this device also had a “remember” tick, making it output the value one step delayed, you could for instance connect several of them and make “random” modulations while still having the same effect when moving from note D-5 to note C-4.
Possibly it could also have two inputs that it could operate and merge to one output.
Anyone following me, or can I clarify this in some way?
I didn’t at first either. Then I realised that he’s referring to the Formula Device which existed very briefly during the 2.6 alpha tests, but never officially made it into the public betas.
Given that it was never made public, and there isn’t even a deprecated DSP chain preset included with 2.6 to access it, I’m not sure if it’s completely safe to use, but here’s the necessary code to copy and paste into the Track DSPs section. Use at your own risk.
Be sure to check the [?] help button on the device itself to get a list of parameters and functions you can use.
Timed FIFO buffer for values could be quite a cool feature but due to the semi-modularity of Renoise I would say should be its own device. Turn a smooth sine wave LFO into a 4bit, stepped LFO with one simple device and much, much more. Nice idea, shouldn’t be to complex and would fit in with the way Renoise works very well.
