when i press 2 keys (at the same time C & E) (on my midi-keyboard (Novation Xiosynth) or on my computer keyboard, renoise redord each note in one row…but normally the two notes should be in the same row in two columns.
The chorus-mode is on. but it makes no different if i toggle this mode on/off.
I can’t see how your instrument is filled, but be sure there is a real instrument defined. (there are samples in it or a VST plugin or a MIDI channel and instrument assigned to it)
Empty instruments will not register chord keys in the pattern editor
It really seems you may be doing something wrong here…
Just to be sure, some demonstration to display the difference between recording sequentially (not scrolling the pattern) and recording chords (scrolling the pattern), i’ve used my pc-keyboard for this:
You describe the behavior of the first situation that is demonstrated (or use no occupied instrument in the selected instrument slot).
The only other thing i can think of is that if you use a PC keyboard, that it is just not capable of hitting more keys simultaneously or you need to trigger some keyboard settings in Windows (keyrepeatrate and disable sticky keys etc.)
