Tidal + Renoise = <3 (redirt)

Hey. I've been working a bit on controling renoise from tidal. So here is my modified BootTidal.hs file. It is not much, but you can already do quite a few things with it.

Feedbacks are welcome!


Omg yes renoise is v cool, thanks for this :slight_smile:

I love Renoise, used to be my main DAW for a long time...
This sounds like a cool project, thanks for sharing! :slight_smile:

Omg love this! I love renoise but kinda hopped off for a while cause I like the tidal flow. This seems like a powerful way to do both.

I love this and am excited to try it!

Re: note off messages: I think having a default note on off length with a command to extend the length such as "legato" would be a good implementation. Don't know how that would work though.

yes, that would be ideal, but I don't see how I can make renoise understand that ...

Hey, I'm getting quite a few errors when trying to run code with this:

Have you renamed certain items like oSchedule and oWindow to new aliases? I think I'm close to having this run, but a little off.

I see your version is 1.4.3 but on my system it is 1.6.1. Maybe that's the reason?

Hey, I've created a thread on the renoise forum to ask for a feature that would help a lot in interfacing with tidal. Basically, the idea is to add a OSC endpoint that allows to send a note event containing the note's duration.

I didn't get much (any traction) so I doubt it will be implemented, but if you wander around on that forum, feel free to add a bit of momentum. :wink:

hey! I've just started using renoise, it's my first DAW!

anyway I thought these awkwardly named functions might be of use for tidal -> renoise action

let segVal' s p n = segment s $ value p # param n
    segVal p n = segVal' 64 p n
    rdEffect p n d = segVal p n # dev d

I've been using them like this:

t1 $ stack [
  n "a b c d" |+ n 36
  rdEffect (slow 2 $ sine) "Cutoff" "2"
  # s "01"

That's cool, thanks for sharing!
