Well, yes, it is true that a lot can be done with simple waveforms and the sampler. But not everything. A real synth with wavetable synthesis, several oscillators, arpeggiator, unison. Also, for brief sounds the sampler works quite well, but for longer ones, like strings or pads, it doesn't.
I just hate having a Windows around, just to make some music!!!
For now using VST works just fine, doesn't? This way you can also create synths that are not just for Renoise...
You do realize though that the topic of this thread is about the absence of VSTi on Linux, right? :-)
