I’m new to trackers and testing Renoise and Redux. So far so good.
Redux is a great sampler and I seriously consider buying, but one thing holds me back.
Why doesn’t have it MIDI out?
Every step-sequencer plugin has a MIDI out as far as I’m aware of.
It seems I can Redux only use with samples and integrated instruments. With a MIDI out, (or more of them), you could use it with any VST plugin / software / hardware / instrument.
With one extra feature, you could do so much more with Redux.
Bump! Midi out from Redux would be so awesome! I came back to using Renoise after 4 or 5 years and I’m definitely getting Redux too, but it would be fantastic to use phrases to write melodies and have Redux trigger instruments in host DAW. For some reason I feel much more comfortable writing melodies in tracker interface, as I’m faster and more adventurous than on a piano roll, so that feature would be a dream come true!
They “simply” could put in back the whole VSTi/VST support of Renoise, since Redux exactly is Renoise’s instrument editor. Then all would make much more sense (at least to me ). I think they only are afraid of support issues which might arise (due problems ins third party plugins, which is pretty good point). So they could add VST with some “hidden” config switch, saying that it is not officially supported and not advertised either.
Oh wait, currently no VSTi support within instrument layer (it is outside instrument layer in Renoise). So this idea would go hand in hand with my feature request here:
i haven’t read any responses from the devs as to why MIDI out wasn’t a feature that was included for the first version of the plugin. i have a hard time believing they don’t think it’s worthwhile, considering it’d be the only tool outside of reViSiT that would be able to function as a midi sequencing plugin. the overall value of it would increase vastly, and get even more people into the tracking paradigm.
it could function basically like the MIDI section of renoise’s instrument editor does, just push out notes, CCs, and maybe some new commands to increase functionality.
Registered just to say I downloaded the demo thinking I would be able to run MIDI out into my hardware from Redux as a VST inside Ableton and was prepared to buy it just for this purpose. It doesn’t do it though eh…
