I have compiled this list to make it a bit easier to navigate the ideas & suggestions forum.
It does not represent a Renoise development roadmap or priorities, but is merely a more organized view of the many ongoing discussions.

If you are looking for a specific topic, try copying the last part of its URL

For example, to search for this topic:

http://forum.renoise.com/index.php/topic/44333-request-alias-free-sample-engine/

...You can search for the last part of the URL, like this

44333-request-alias-free-sample-engine/

Yes, big ups!

Maybe we need a different way to organise feature suggestions, like a wiki perhaps...

EDIT: Never mind, I just realised I am making a feature suggestion about how to do feature suggestions...... inception!

Yeah, it took a while to gather all those links Posted Image
But, since the beta tests do not last forever, I really think it would be worth the extra effort in this special period.

Generally speaking, I will continue to update this page, once per day or perhaps every second day...

A quick update, having added some additional links and cleaned up ( - again! this board seems to mess with the code on each edit...)

Did I get this right, it's only feature suggestions for this very release, right? Not all the classics included

I have done a slight amount of moderation on the links added so far - it's kind of hard to say what is relevant and what isn't.
But if you are about to ask for audio tracks or a full-blown arranger ("classics" happy.gif), yes then you should probably discuss this in the main ideas & suggestions forum.

If you choose to ignore it, then yes.

Really, I think I know what you are trying to say. But the list is simply intended to reduce the risk of duplicate threads.
There are dozens of pages worth of feature suggestions just for the R3 betas, and I wouldn't know myself where to start. Hence I started organizing & grouping the topics.

Begging you allow LPB in individual phrases to be midi mappable. Seems like and easy fix and makes a great effect knob.
