Ohh it was called audio track :] I was searching for waveform. But main idea is to generate waveform in realtime, while adding commands to pattern editor, the audio track(waveform) would be product of all effects used on this track (it would look like a rendered wave from one track).
Hey powieff, thanx for the picture ! I see this as an addition to the scopes view, a static waveform view or "frozen scope" view. This background waveform view could be a first step toward the "audio tracks" & "freeze track" concepts.
I think Jonas is right, it should be displayed next to the typical pattern notes column.
I think that this visualisation mode should only be available for the edited default track. Why ? Because I can allready see the technical problems behind this simple addition. To include this visualisation philosophy into Renoise, it has to natively use a "realtime render track" technology. Indeed, it implies that those displayed "static" waveforms have to be "pre-rendered' and updated in realtime, during pattern editing time, and stored in a kind of cache. Since you can link devices to other devices located in other tracks, displaying a waveform for every track with complex chains & sends, could quickly become something hellish, very CPU consuming... Maybe, the static waveform update frequency could be modified by users, for example after 1sec, 2secs, 4,secs, 8secs.... of Renoise inactivity...
