Query about the "Building a Beat" beginners' tutorial [SOLVED]

Renoise 3.4
macOS 12.3 Monterey
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 I/O

I’ve just installed Renoise 3.4 and am just working through the Building a Beat tutorial.

I’ve noticed that if I select a C4 on my MIDI keyboard, it inserts the note C4 correctly in the pattern editor, but also seems to capture extra info, presumably related to velocity, which I don’t want at this stage of the tutorial.

I figured that if I used the computer keyboard, this wouldn’t t be a problem. The only issue now is that pressing the Z key on my Mac Mini M1 keyboard is generating C3 rather than C4.

UPDATE: I’ve just sussed it thanks to this little gizmo…

UPDATE2: A couple of hours in and Renoise is pretty cool, isn’t it? :heart_eyes:

Yeah by Default MIDI devices in renoise carry a bunch of extra Info with them, you can disable that behavior under Preferences > MIDI easily.
