thanks for a great sequencer, I love it! I bought a Launchpad a while ago to use with the plugin Playtime for Reaper. I really like Playtime for final arranging with samples and analog synths, BUT I didn't find a good, stable way to record my patterns (items) without having to watch the screen and/or stopping the music once in a while. I googled "Launchpad sequencer", and found Stepp0r which actually made me buy a Renoise license right away ( I haven't used a tracker since 1996 .
I was glad to find that Renoise could do most things that are standard these days, like sending midi to external synths, slicing samples, ReWire, mapping parameters to MIDI controllers and so on.... quite different compared to FastTracker2
Stepp0r makes it even more fun, and I like the Pattern Matrix mode very much! Personally I think this plugin works and looks the best when used with no more than 8 instruments/tracks, but it's great that it's not limited to that.
I have a question (more will come), is there a way to "record" a pattern matrix jam, and then save the pattern chain that you created live, with the project? (Like in Playtime or in Ableton Live). It's not the end of the world if this is impossible, I've tried rewiring Renoise to Reaper and recorded a jam there as audio and that works great as well!
