What if you use the MIDI mapping dialog directly: Track Muting > Mute/Unmute > Track XX [toggle] ?
Thanks for the helpful tip danoise, now I understand what the problem is.
When I use the mapping dialog directly, there are two options for Track Muting > Mute/Unmute > Current Track (as there are for many other items as well): [Toggle] and [Set]. When I choose [Toggle], trigger mode works fine, but when I choose [Set], trigger mapping mode doesn’t do anything. I am not sure if this is the way it should be or not though.
When user wants to map track’s Active/Off by clicking on the buttons, renoise chooses the [set] mode (as can be seen in the dialog but I overlooked this everytime), this is why trigger mapping mode does not work, at least for me. I checked some other buttons like Play, Stop, Metronome, Edit, etc. and the same problem exists, [set] mode is chosen by renoise each time and as a result, Trigger mode does not work.
The other strange thing that I found is that when I choose Current Track [Toggle] from the dialog, Gate mapping mode works exactly as Trigger. This is the same for other buttons as well. Again I can’t understand if this is the way things should work or not. For me this is how different mapping modes behave:
Gate: works exactly as trigger
Value: works as trigger mode for velocities > 64, nothing happens for values <= 64
Trigger: does not work
Using the dialog solved the problem for me anyway, but I would be very thankful if you help me understand how these settings are supposed to work. I also think I might have been confused the meaning of Gate with Trigger, after so many tries and errors while mapping.
edit: As I mentioned in earlier posts, all the three modes work fine for DSPs’ Enable/Bypass buttons and there is only one option for them in the mapping dialog (no Toggle/Set options).
