I have an external controller (BOSS GT6) with a button that sends a max value when pressed and a min value to release.
I want to use it to toggle a slider in Renoise to a max and min value. My problem is I have to hold the button to stay in the max value. when I release it, it will go back to the min value. I want it to toggle the state of the slider inside Renoise with a press.
dblue, a very weird thing happens, I paste your chain into my song where it doesn’t react the same way always.
I now got a song where it click unmutes, click stay unmute, click mute, click unmute …enz.
do I have to change speed settings from the lfo’s?
I’m using Plogue Bidule for all these kinda MIDI manipulation. Maybe a bit over the top for only one button, but if you like to do more advance stuff it might be worth checking out. I run BiduleVST on the Master and send MIDI signals through MidiYoke. Unfortunately the plug-in version is only available for registered users. And also, the current demo expires on March 22, perhaps a bit soon to try it out properly… there’s usually a small gap before the next demo version comes out.
I did test the DSP chain with different Lines Per Beat values, different BPMs, etc., but I’ve now noticed that it only works correctly if you use an even-numbered Ticks Per Line value such as 6, 8, 10, 12, etc.
If you use an odd-numbered TPL value, then the LFO will unfortunately drift around a bit. I simply didn’t notice this before because I usually stick to the default of 12 TPL.
Can you check if you’re using an odd-numbered TPL value in your song, and if changing to an even-numbered value fixes it?
dblue, once again, you are the man I have some tracks that origin from my Amiga digibooster times.
I never really mess with the TPL but now I can see that somehow, during the .DBM to .RNS conversion via .XM back in the days,
some weird codes are introduced that affect the TPL. I only noticed some weird things with pitch bends which I can correct now
So I corrected this stuff in all my songs now and your solution now really works!
and while digging into this, we even tackled a problem that was present for years it seems
