Im very much into Renoise for a little while now and I’m planning on buying a midi controller of some kind.
Ive got a td6 drumkit from Roland but thats not very easy
I’ve been looking around much lately and stumbled upon loads and loads of possibilities. The Korg Padkontrol was something that seemed awesome and I like the Emu Xboard 25 a lot too.
Now I dont know an awefull lot about these things and I am a starting n00b with all this so all the information you have about MIDI controllers is welcome.
What should I pay attention to and why should I buy what?
im having the first version of the oxygen 8 midi-keyboard,but im thinking on getting something like the m-audio 61-keys midi-keyboard(cant remember the name)would anyone recommend that for use with renoise??
td6d,i think renoise dont have the midi-learn/midi-map feature yet,or dont support it to the fullest
I would wait for the Nocturn (coming out really soon), and see how it fares with Renoise.
It has brains, in the shape of the new automapping software, so you can map your VST instruments and share those mappings across multiple songs. If it really works like it’s advertised to, they have gotten rid of the single most annoying thing about controllers ATM.
A friend of mine is getting it as soon as it comes out, so I can report how it works with Renoise
The only question Ive got is;
How does renoise (if its possible) saves actions you perform on your MIDI controller.
If I turn a knob that I signed to distortion, how does renoise shows me that on screen while Im recording?
(is this even possible?)
It saves all CC-data as command data in the command-line of a track. To put it legibly: It goes into the four 0000’s at the very right of the track where your cursor is while recording. Pretty sure about this anyways…
So when I buy any MIDI controller with knobs (wich I can assign to any dsp/vsti parameter) I can play the song I made and record the changing parameters for a track?
Because I didnt know there were kinds of command data for any vst’s (like madshifta or LoopaZoid)
Im sorry about asking so many times but I have to be sure before I spend hundreds of dollars
Yes, but it’s not the only way to use a controller. Another approach is to hit CTRL+M (MIDI assign).
You can assign any parameter in the DSP chain - vst effects, native fx, vst instruments (via the vst-automate device). When you turn the midi controller, movement is recorded into the automation envelope
