First I would say I searched the forums, but did not find an answer to my question, I saw mre things about asio drivers or so, but nothing related to midi controlling. So sorry if it was already asked, I did not find it… />
I have been looking for a long time now on finding an interesting issue to proceed live performing of my tracks. I have to say that I don’t make my tracks on Renoise (maybe this will come, I’m wondering), but on another untypical software called “Making Waves Studio 5”.
I have a midi keyboard which is MPK mini.
I have tried out FL Studio or Ableton Live for performing my tracks live, but I don’t like the way it feels. I found Renoise could be interesting in many ways, as I could launch patterns with pads, apply effects or mix with knobs, and play mélodies live on the keyboard.
But a problem appeared to me : I have 2 banks of 8 pads (so 16 pads available), and that is really not enough when you need to run an hour of live performance. So I thought I would open multiple instances of Renoise to switch from one to another so I could go on playing my music. But once I open the second one it says 2 times “failed to open the MME midi device Mpk Mini”, and since then, I can not assign midi learn on the second instance of Renoise.
I saw a video of Hitori Tori (not the same music as me, but that doesn’t matter />, and he’s doing live performance with multiple instances of Renoise and the same midi controller, switching from one to another. So I think it’s possible to do so, but I don’t know how />
Just Watch from 2’00 this vid and you’ll see the transition :
I hope it was clear and you’ll be able to help me…
oh, and BTW, I’m still using the demo version as I don’t know if Renoise is going to fulfill my needs /> , I hope that has nothing to do with it…
