Isreally not as ugly as people are afraid it is. Takes30 seconds to set up. Save it as xrni, save the tracks in the daw’s template and you never have to set itup again
]I’m going to be preaching this until everyone thinks it’s ok. :c
Thanks for preaching this :D, as it proves there is something to be gained out of using phrases as MIDI sources. If MIDI out functionality wasn’t useful in Redux, this ^ recommendation to use the phrases in Renoise wouldn’t make sense either.
The fact that Redux is centered around samples isn’t that strong justification for excluding MIDI output, for this very same reason. People use phrases in Renoise to play synth plugins and even send MIDI outside the application, so there are clearly uses for it. Having it in plugin form has its allure, and in the end, it’s about making Redux a stronger product (instead of just going “use the non-plugin version instead”).
The main focus of Redux is sampling, but that’s not an actual reason why it couldn’t have this as an additional feature. Hell, even Kontakt sends out MIDI. Like in Kontakt’s case, it isn’t supposed to be a headline feature turning it into a MIDI sequencer. Even with its idiosyncracies, in the state it’s now, without stripping it of any sampling features or creating a super duper new “mode” for MIDI functionality, it would just make many experimenters very happy.
