Secret turbo user trick: Right click the Scroll to scroll big steps!
Choose a default velocity and octave at the top of the Renoise window…
Also use the tools Inversion to make chords lower/higher.

Download and open, doubleclick, or drap the tool into Renoise, version 3.1 or higher (currently: Renoise 3.3.1), to install the tool.
You can then find the new version above via menu Tools… ChordLord 2.09.231 (231 chords),
or the older versions of it with (43, 103, 133, 193, 217, 226 chords) further below not used anymore.

You may also want to try pattern loop mode (numpad Enter)
and play cursor following turned off (Scroll Lock button)
when experimenting with Record mode on (if you do not want to enable the OSC server).
More info on setting the firewall for the OSC server at the bottom of this post.
