First post. I’ve spent a few hours with the renoise demo on my windows laptop using only the onboard samplers and fx and I really dig the workflow.
But in the end I was hoping for it to be my new main midi sequencer for triggering my hardware samplers and synths. So right now I have it installed on my studio PC hooked up via MIDI to an akai sampler and unfortunately the midi jitter is really bad.
I am coming from reaper and reaper’s midi out timing isn’t the tightest either, but after a few tweaks (e.g. lowest ASIO buffers) and avoiding a few features (e.g. no item looping) i can make it work ok. Also I spread stuff out to several samplers, each with their own midi port, which helps a lot, too.
But the test I’m doing right now is a simple monophonic 1/16th note pattern sent to an akai s3200 and it sounds all over the place. (both on USB MIDI and the MIDI OUT of my RME AIO, makes no difference)
Unfortunately the demo does not let you use asio, so I can’t check if that’s the issue.
Am I doing something wrong here? I found a few other threads discussing midi timing issues with renoise, but they’re old. Also I see videos on youtube where people are sequencing their hardware with renoise and it sounds fine.
I was ready to buy a licence, esp. since the pricing is very fair, but the midi jitter I am currently getting makes it useless for my application.
Any help? thx
