hi all.

in the time i've spent using Renoise, i built up a personal Cheat Sheet or reference for Renoise. i added things whenever i found something useful on the forums, so i could have it all in one place. the original version of this was in MS Excel. however, for reasons entirely unclear to me, i suddenly felt the urge to have it in a different format, and figured that format would be HTML+CSS+PHP. in other words, i built it into a website.

now, aside from the fact that it looks a lot better, i thought it might benefit fellow Renoise users as well. therefore, i am linking it in this thread. everyone can feel free to make suggestions for things to add, and it might grow out to be a great resource that has some useful stuff in one place, and maybe saving some of you from doing tedious forum searches just to find out what that one website was with the list of note-frequencies or something like that.

if you find it useful, it would be nice if you would post a reply here. that's all the 'credit' i want.

you can find it here: http://www.roaldblij...oise/cheatsheet
(currently having DNS troubles, here's a working link: http://roald.exul.nl...ise/cheatsheet/

i hope someone finds this as useful as i do.

Keyboard Frequency View inside a Track xrns.

Although there's dBLue's tuned filter, I use this as an overall view and checkpoint.

Not meant to be heard since I've used Vol, Pan, and Delay to place the numbers in. "A" in a Vol, Pan, or Delay column means a point or dot.

For example: C-400 261A63 = 261.63

If you like, you can add checkpoints for Sub Bass, Bass, Midrange, High Mids, and High Frequencies from this interactive frequency chart.

RIP Captain Beefheart. He was completely right about that. I think too much.

just added links to 'printable' versions of the pattern effects, including the midi-commands. they come in 3 styles: full colour, black on white and white on black. i suppose black on white should be the most popular, as you can take out your pencils and colour it in yourself.

the midi-commands have not been added to the on-site pattern effects, i don't really know why. if you want me to anyway, let me know, i'll see what i can do.

added links to PWM Oscillator by steven: http://www.renoise.c...ine-wave-sample
and the 'more tuned devices' by dblue: http://www.renoise.c...e-tuned-devices

also, for those tips/tricks that the poster provided an xrns-file for, i downloaded that file and uploaded it on my own server just in case a download-link in a forum thread breaks. furthermore, i credited most of the tips to the original poster, with a link to the user-page on the forum, as well as a link to the forum-thread in the cases where that was not present yet.

hope people still find this useful. i recently figured out it functions pretty well as a link to various cool tricks posted in the forums, for when you are having trouble finding a certain something.

if anyone has a problem with me hosting their xrns on my own server, let me know and i'll take it down. (i think so far all the files are by dblue though, so i hope he's okay with it :) )

@TheBellows: thanks man! appreciate it.

was thinking after my earlier update, and remembered 2 additional things, which i then added. they are the Big ass Scopes Easter Egg and (how could i've forgotten this one?) my own collection of kinda-ridiculous-but-pretty-cool-nonetheless 'Reversed Soundsculpting' techniques.

enjoy!

was looking for a reggae tutorial tonight, remembered using a really good one before but sadly i could not find that again. then i stumbled across one i did not know and which is equally good. so, to not forget it again, i added the link to the cheatsheet, in the 'Links' tab and added its own category 'Styles'. check it out here: http://www.roaldblij...sheet/links.php

edit: if anyone has any other good tutorials for beats/rhythms/melodies in any kind of style (except trance, please, the cheatsheet is still personal enough for me to steer away from a type of music i cannot stand), feel free to suggest it here and i will add it if i agree on the quality/usefulness of it.

Only just dived into this for the first time, nice effort here rhowaldt! However, one suggestion: I'm finding the near white on the really dark background a bit hard on my old eyes. Is it easy for you to soften that contrast for old codgers like me? :P Otherwise well done, feel free to link in there the other In:Depth articles I've done just in case you haven't yet. Sheesh, I've still got to make time to write more of those... :)
