When doing a lot of MIDI importing, especially from a GM MIDI file, there’s one thing that strikes me as a possible improvement. When using General MIDI, channel 10 is used for drums. However, when triggering samples or VST instruments in Renoise, you often want one separate instrument per drum. If each triggered note on channel 10 was placed in a different track, it would be much easier editing drums imported from a General MIDI file.
The MIDI file import feature in Renoise is great and i use it a lot, with different programs that produce MIDI files. I know that a lot of people don’t use it much, but it’s very useful. I think something like it extracting channel 10 drums to separate patterns might make it even more useful for a lot of people.
