I love the idea that you can create curves and stuff using the graphical envelopes in Renoise, for use with transmitting MIDI CC values etc.
I noticed on other sequencers, like Cubase, their graphical CC windows are more spartan.
You can’t draw curves and stuff, like you can with Renoise.
Is this because painting in continuous complex curves clogs up the data transmission of MIDi when sending out all of this MIDI CC data, for every step/tick, over several channels, each with several MidiCC curves, all at once, resulting in this concept being avoided in Cubase, etc?
I’m wondering more about realtime controlling of external hardware synths via MIDI sequencing rather than internal software VST-Is, as hardware synths are what I use, and furthermore you can’t “bounce down” audio channels with hardware synths, so accurate MIDI transmission in realtime is relatively important when mixing down externally.
Are there any other sequencer programs for PC that offer Midi CC graphical envelope control like Renoise? External Midi transmission isn’t so tight with Renoise naturally, even before doing this curvy Midi CC stuff (as JSwift has mentioned before regards external sample triggering), so I’m forced to look for possible alternatives.
