Beta 3 & 4?
Due to a really really nasty bug in B3 we've quickly updated the builds and released a B4 straight afterwards.
Sorry for the troubles.



 Auto-Check for updates

If you want to let Renoise check for updates (new betas) automatically on start-up, we have a small tool for you:
Attached File  com.renoise.UpdateChecker_Rns270_V4.xrnx   27KB   91 downloads (download - drag and drop onto the Renoise Window to install)

It replaces Renoises "Help"->"Check for Updates..." menu, and also optionally checks for updates every time you start Renoise.


 Fixes

As usual, all for Beta 3 fixed issues have been marked with [fixed b3] in this forum, and are now closed (read-only). If you can still replicate any of those issues, open a new topic please, so we can have a look at this again.


 Feature Finetuning

Beside of the all the [fixed B3] issues:
  • Computer keyboard velocity setting has a new default -> "--", which does not overwrite existing volume values in the patterns (just like QUERTY note recording in Renoise <= 2.6 did)
  • Various automation view performance tweaks. Especially large songs should no longer create GUI CPU spikes when zooming, scrolling around, and the draw mode also is a lot more friendly to your CPU
  • New, experimental line tool in the automation view to create multi-pattern envelope fades
  • The "free" automation zooming mode (zooming, not bound to a pattern factor) is now a preference, and a hopefully more obvious setting in the automation editor GUI
  • Multiple selected key-zones can now be dragged&dropped and re-sized together
  • Drag and dropping one or multiple samples to the key-zones editor will now try to set a default base-note, based on the note range
  • Changed Velocity/Volume column behavior for sustained notes in new songs (see this thread please)
  • Short-looped sustained sample, like this one should be a bit lighter on the CPU on
  • Cleaned up MIDI & Plugin instrument layout (a leftover from the 2.7 alpha - getting MIDI & plugin views aligned to the new sample box style)
  • Signal follower thing in the instrument filters can now be inverted
  • ... few other small details here and there

---

Depending on how busy you guys keep us with bug-reports, we'll try to do a bit more feature fine-tuning for the next beta(s). Unfortunately the closer we get to a final release, the more carefully we have to be with any changes, so we can not promise to do huge, groundbreaking new stuff. Making Renoise a tank, this release as stable as possible, still is most important, and what we should concentrate on here.

Beta 4 released, to quickly kill this monster bug. Sorry for the troubles. No clue how we could miss this in our internal tests before making B3 public. If you are still running Beta3, update to Beta4 please....
