I’m new to Renoise, and new to Midi. If i got this straight, Midi-commands / notes are sent through a channel and there are 16 Channels available. So in Renoise I should be able to assign notes on channel 1 to instrument 1, and notes sent on channel 2 to instrument 2.
I want to assign the pads of my Midi-Keyboard to my drum-Instrument, so I splitted the keyboard in 2 parts, left part sends to channel 1, right part to channel 2. I set up the Midi-Settings on the instrument-tab according to this (instrument 1 channel 1, instrument 2 channel 2). But now, if I press any note, it always sends the command to my currently selected instrument.
I tracked the commands - the keyboard seems to work correctly, i can see the channel changing according to the zones.
What am I doing wrong? Or am I misunterstanding something?
edit: i’m using the latest stable renoise (also tested the beta) on OS X and a M-Audio Axiom 25 Keyboard.
