Yeah sorry, I realise I should’ve been a bit more precise about what I mean.
I have done all you mentioned. The thing I’m trying to do is get the Virus to make sound, yes.
Since the Virus itself doesn’t output MIDI (it’s a keyless version) I have to use my MIDI keyboard to play it. The MIDI keyboard shows up, and I can get that to work, but I need to find a way to let the Virus know it should ‘listen’ to the MIDI data it’s being given by my keyboard. In FLstudio 10 this is done easily, using a specific MIDI port.
Can you play the Virus with just it and the keyboard with no problems?
Can you get sounds out of the Virus with Renoise and programming the notes for the instrument by hand?
If you can answer Yes to both of those:
Does your keyboard have an In, Out and Thru? Do you need to play sounds from it to?
If the answer to those is Yes/No then hopefully I can test with the kit I have at home. Can’t think how to solve it if your keyboard only has an Out though. Not without the use of a MIDI Merge box anyway…
I’ve already tried what you’re showing there dblue (just tried it again just to be sure), but I’m afraid that ‘channel’ is something completely different than ‘port’.
I’m not the best at explaining these type of things (definitely not over the internet and in another language), but here’s how I have it setup in FLStudio:
The ‘MIDI-out’ plugin, or something similar, is basically what I seem to be missing in Renoise.
Hopefully this’ll give you an idea of what’s going on.
Thanks for the help so far guys
Hmm, I just realised, I obviously need to select an audio input somewhere, because the Virus is going into L and R inputs on my Audio/MIDI interface. Right now I only have the MIDI keyboard selected as input.
In FL you can select the audio input to go into a mixer track. How is this handled in Renoise?
Can’t see the image, unfortunately. It says you have exceeded your bandwidth.
Sending MIDI to external gear is handled by the Instrument’s Ext. MIDI section, as mentioned above. Once you have an instrument set up to broadcast MIDI to your external gear, you can further control it (MIDI CC, Pitch Bend, etc) via the Instr. MIDI Control device which you can add to the Track DSPs.
