Noobing with an external VST


this maybe silly, but I just cracked Renoise open and I’m still quite lost, despite a decade and a half with trackers. I have the Massive my Native Instruments and it responds to notes and all that, but I’m guessing I can input commands into the pattern, to control the rotaries of Massives parameters, right? I’m absolutely baffled and unable to find anything related to my question, partly because I can’t find the right search terms. Please, help!

if you want to automate massive (aside from its editor, which you will find in the “plugin” tab) you will want to load an “*instr. automation” device to a track, it is like an effect, and can give you access to vst plugin parameters.

Thank you! I love this place already, much appreciated!
