I use Renoise to as the sequencer for my external gear. I am using an internal MIDI card (PCI) to improve latency. The MIDI inputs and outputs all run through this card. My master keyboard is the only “in” signal going to Renoise and I have the MIDI output running to all devices chained by MIDI through. Its a very easy setup.
My master MIDI keyboard has the ability to switch the operating channel very quickly. I can press the “operation” button and then select the channel that I want to operate on. This is great because I can quickly bounce from one device to another. However, the operating channel has no effect on device channel in Renoise. It does not matter if I’m on channel 10 of the keyboard, Renoise will still pump the signal to whatever Renoise device is selected.
Is it possible to make Renoise respect the MIDI controller channel and send the corresponding signal to the appropriate Renoise device without having to manually select the device with the mouse?
