Howya Renoise Gurus…
Has anybody figured a (free) method to midisync from leopard osx to vista, my friend has the mac (no,thats not a disease) and runs logic, i would love to sync it to my Renoise on vista. It would be great to sync logic to my resolume as well. we have a gig soon with videos synced up to the backing tracks from logic. I have checked the demo version of “midioverlan”, but it seems way overpriced!!!
Any insight would be most appreciated!!!
Welcome to the wonderful world of Apple, where they even can trade your toilet turl for massive gold…
There is not much for Mac either that does not require you to leave your wallet in your pocket…
Whatever exists is pretty outdated but perhaps useful:
Although i picked this up somewhere on the net:
Anyone with an Apple computer that has Mac OSX Tiger has MIDI over internet (broadband) or lan built in. Just open up the Core Midi in the Utilities folder & double click on the MIDI Network. keyboard -> MIDI out -> mac -> DSL connection -> (backbone) -> DSL connection -> mac -> MIDI in -> keyboard (soundbank). Simply put in the ip address you want to connect to in the MIDI Network menu. Set it up to send to the network or recieve from the connnection, or both. It takes less than a minute to set up & it’s already in your operating system for free! I do (midi over broadband ) live playing & jamming from home over the internet to another mac computer that’s plugged into another keyboard (at the far end) all the time. Thousands of people do this all the time from gigging to, session work live, to real time collaborating on writing songs. How it works is as your talking to the person your collaborating with from your home “POTS” landline non-cordless phone to thier landline non-cordless (because a landline phone which has less latency than cell phone call & non-cordless has less latency then a cordless phone which of course you want the lowest latency on your voice call) so you can converse & hear each other talk, sing, or band/musicians play while you are connected from your Mac over broadband DSL connection through the backbone to their broadband DSL connection to thier Mac on the far end doing the broadband over MIDI while the far end hears you play MIDI live. You can also select it to be duplex while your sending them MIDI your also receiving MIDI from the far end as well. Since you can do all this of course it can easily be done over your local Lan network or from one computer through the router to another computer. It’s free to Mac users with Tiger OSX.
On PC there is a free gadget MIDI2net, i have no idea if it can talk to the Mac variant though.
I wish I had a programming hat that I could don!!! Seems the company is no longer in business…maybe it could be something that the intelligent and Godly Renoise programmers could incorporate natively in the future. Now that would be a boon:)
I have found it though from another hosting site…So no-else needs to look,here it is>>>>>
Maybe this could work with the midi utility in MidiOx on vista. Il update my findings once both computers are in the same room…
Thanks for the help
