Have a look at the Changelog.
 
You can download it here.

Cool tool, simple enough to use and seems pretty stable - I had no errors while trying it out. 

 

But, what does the "stepper mode" do (the up/down arrows) ?

Thanks for the compliment.

 

I hope by now you know what the Up and Down arrows mean, but : 

 

They should do pagination on the pattern. Because you have 32 steps, but your pattern might have 64 or more lines you can page through the lines (+ and - 32 steps) when you have a zoom factor (user1/2 keys) of high resolution (eg. 1 step = 1 line ).

Ah, I completely missed out on that.

Perhaps because I was playing around with some really short patterns. 

 

One useful feature would be if SteppOr could read notes from the pattern, so that it would respond when you're moving between patterns. 

Right now, it's working fine as a "forget the computer" type control, but it's a little tricky when you are using both. 

 

Anyway, great work and awesome first post :-)

It should do it but not perfect (when you zoom in and out you should get a refresh).

 

The Issue is not that easy to solve right now. It should be possible to solve it via notifications, but this might result in slowing down renoise a lot, which is not an option at all. Maybe I'll find a nice way to recognize note changes.

 

Anyway, I'll create an issue on Github for that.

 

I'm open for more feed back like this. (thx danoise)

Hi,

I like it much :-)

 

For me would be more good if i can set the note/notes and lenght from a midi keyboar, example: push on step 1 then play a note or chord on the keyboard and it store the result, i don't know if it's possible but will be more faster and free more pad for the steps; then a page where to trig the patterns like gridpie or similar :-)

 

I' have a problem, i see a lot of green led appear on the step area, maybe it's my problem.

Hope you continue to develop, and sorry for my english.

Hey jagiz,

 

sorry for my delayed response, I did not receive emails for this thread, but now I'll be notified instantly :D

 

I did not quite get what you mean by your Idea. If you speak german, you can send me a private message, post it again here in german or you can create an idea here (in german or english).

But maybe it would help you to use the OSC server to play the sounds, put the pattern editor in record mode and follow the played note. This should record your input like using a keyboard.

 

About the green LEDs. I would guess you have a high LPB rate like 8 or 16. Because of this the LEDs (of the past steps) will not be updated/removed. 

I create a  bug-ticket for that (but for version 0.4).

 

Thanks for your response.

Now this is really useful step sequencer that complements the duplex one, thank You very much for Your work!

 

I think the play/stop playback would be nice addition on one of unused launchpad buttons.

Thank you. I just finished the Roadmap for the next release (on github), almost all buttons will get functionality.

 

But maybe there will be a play/stop knob after the 0.4 release.

I only had a short try, but at a first glance it seems to be a great tool. I really like how easy it is to set up and to work with. The lack of a GUI let you focus on the Launchpad and don't seduce to look at the screen. Also the rotate function is a nice addition. I definitely have to spend more time with it and discover all features and the workflow. Thank you Palo van Dalo!

i have to unplug the launchpad before renoise spits out an error, the lockup happens randomly, i have tried disabling other tools that may be interfering....

Thank you for the feedback, I'm actively working to improve the workflow and experience.

Hmm, this is still a bug in my opinion. I have to find out if I can fix it or it's something inside Renoise, I can't fix.

Add new release 0.50. Have  look at it here. You can also use the renoise plugin updater to update it (I guess).

I don't have a Launchpad Pro. They added some buttons, and stuff, but if they haven't changed the way to talk the old buttons, it should work (for at least the old buttons).

Finally the new renoise version is out there, and the new Stepp0r version is too!

On this version fixed some bugs, and

There will be a video about the changes soon.
