Just came across this: https://hackaday.io/project/160858-vstibox
The VSTiBox is a Windows based machine that has the power to run the most heavy VST’s, while interacting with it like a musical instrument. Because everything is integrated, it is easy to bring to a rehearsal or gig and hook it up.
I’m intrigued, partly because the idea is slick, but also because I’m interested in ways to manipulate Renoise in real-time using MIDI/OSC, scripting, and assorted controllers and controller middleware.
Makes me curious of what “Renoise-in-a-Box” could be.
