there is no problem with renoise intercepting the value being changed. like most vsti plugins, if you move the knob or fader in the plugin, it will move the fader in renoise.
kore is not a midi controller, it does not send standard midi messages, but instead has it’s own system set up with it’s own software, allowing you to turn knobs on the hardware, and controlling assigned parameters in the plugin. i’m not looking to use the kore hardware directly in renoise, because that is impossible, but rather like this:
Renoise -> Kore Software VSTi <- Kore Hardware Controller
The controller would control the software, the software would be synced with renoise. turn a knob on the controller, it turns a knob in the plugin. When that knob in the plugin moves, it then moves the fader in renoise.
The next logical step would be to simply record the movement of that moving fader in renoise…this is not possible, because the only way to record a fader in renoise is to use the right-click and drag function.
Basically, right now, you record things in renoise, and it sends the info to the plugin. I need to be able to simply hit a “record enable” or “write automation” button, then actually physically turn the knobs in the plugin, rather than moving the associated fader in renoise.
It’s like driving a car. Kore hardware is my hand, kore software is my steering wheel, and the renoise faders are the wheels i want to turn. i want to use my hands, to turn the wheels via the kore software, because i can not directly get in and turn the wheels with my bare hands. so far this whole mechanism works fine in renoise, turn a knob on the controller, it moves the knob in the software, which moves the fader in renoise. the only problem is that it WON’T record that.
enough bad analogies and redundant topics, put that all aside, it would be cool just to have a function where you could open your plugin window, move a fader or knob, and it would record directly to your automation window. i know some people hate the comparison, but this is a standard feature in the other software i use like cubase 4, pro tools, and ableton live.
most of the time there is the standard work around of just finding the fader in renoise, but in my case with kore, that is not an option if i want to use my actual hands and turn a knob while jamming out on my synths.
anyways, i’ll shutup, i just am surprised no one else sees the value in this.
let it be known though i have used renoise for about a week and i feel like i’ve died and gone to electronic music heaven haha. peace.
