Introducing GT16-Colors

'GT16-Colors' is a free MultiTool created by ulneiz for Renoise, a floating window type, to build & customice various distributions/combinations of 'Groups & Tracks per Colors' for Pattern Editor & Mixer.

There are '16 Colors' with until 1200 Options to choose and multiple Tool Modules for control. Select a 'Color', select a 'Distribution' or 'Combination' and build according your needs. With GT16-Colors, the groups are the protagonists!

 

Use only a floating window to control your building. Use the tabs to enlarge or reduce the window. Use the integrated key commands, your mouse or both for maximum control. Use the aditional controls below of each Advanced Tool to discover a new ocean...

 

Some 'Combined Options' includes many Groups & Tracks (>100), to insert only with a click of mouse or key command. Please, use with moderation!!! Think before using...

 

Moreover, GT16-Colors include until ten bottom slots to control & edit (Advanced Tools section). This version 1.0 include two powerful tools, 'GTC' (magnificent for control) & 'SPNO' (effective for sort pitches of notes per octaves) integrated in the slots one & two. Apart, if you know the LUA code language, you can add your personal tools here (eight free slots).

 

 

The version 1.1 of GT16-Colors is tested with Renoise 3.1.0 and work fine. This version was created in August 2016.

The version 1.0 of GT16-Colors is tested with Renoise 3.1.0 and work fine. This version was created in July 2016.

 

Quickstar & initial use of GT16-Colors

  1. Download and install the tool “GT16-Colors_v1.1.xrnx”. Recomended install also the skin “GoldBlue_v1.2.xrnc”.
  2. Start Renoise and charge the GT16-Colors Tool since menu of Tools, menu of Pattern Editor or menu of Mixer.
  3. After, assign manually a key Command, recomended ALT + CTRL + G in Preferences/Keys… Global/Tools/GT16-Colors.
  4. Now, you are two key commands in the mind, ALT + CTRL + G for invoke and ESC for exit of floating window.
  5. Use the tabs to navigate between different options.
  6. Select a color and a distribution and Insert in pattern editor or mixer. Build according to your composition needs.
  7. Use the aditional advanced tools located below to control.
  8. Enjoy!

 

Features GT16-Colors... v1.1 - More compact, with Navigation Bars and hidden information!

  • GUI more compact: GUI has been reduced a 25% approximately. It occupies less space in height. I think that version 1.0 takes up too much space.

  • Includes Navigation Bars: two navigation bars to control with the mouse the displacement for Note Columns inside the Tracks (the smaller) and to control the displacement for the Index (Tracks, Groups, Master and Sends). You can use to visually check things on your composition more quickly, when there are many tracks. Currently, the bars do not interact with Renoise.

  • Hidden information and more detailed. Advanced tools include extensive information, which is hidden by a checkbox. In this way, takes up less space.

  • Code Review

 

Features GT16-Colors... v1.0 - Colors, Groups, Speed and Octaves, a new ocean to navigate!

  • Only a floating window for all: unified tool for maximum control, usability and easily understood.
  • Compact direct & controls: several tabs to provide different views, including a compact mode. Include more of 14 controls and 3 monitoring. More power to mouse.
  • Four main additions: 1) Control finely tuned of colors in pattern editor and mixer. 2) Control the tracks since the groups (something totally new in Renoise!). 3) Faster visual control in some operations always related with groups, as ordering the pitches of the notes per octaves. 4) Composition per octaves, with classified and ordered notes, of course!
  • Speed and same color: Specially designed to assemble multiple Tracks & Groups of the same color quickly, or combined according to your needs. Believe it yourself!
  • Stepwise construction: Specially designed to create small or large groups of tracks of the same color, or combined  colors, all ordered with coherently.
  • 16 Main Colors: Aqua, Black, Blue, Brown, Gold, Gray, Green, Orange, Pale Pink, Pink, Pistachio, Red, Sky Blue, Violet, White & Yellow. Each main color used up five tones to differentiate between groups and tracks.
  • Best visual classification: 3+2 levels of intensity of the colors to clearly differentiate the tracks of the groups.
  • Multiple options: In Total, this window include more 1200 options of individual colors and combiend colors.
  • New hierarchy of Groups (3 levels): "Main Group", "Group", "SubGroup". The colors are more vivid... (Remember: Renoise allows 5 levels). Really, this tool accepts more levels, but are not necessary. Three levels are sufficient for most of the cases.
  • New treatment of Tracks: Tracks sorted per pairs... Odd Track lighter color; Pair Track darker color. Use to add the same type of instruments.
  • Combined Colors: Includes multiple color combinations of Tracks and Groups ("Combined..." Tab).
  • Options brute force: Include a some brute options, warned with a triangle! Please, use with moderation (You can include up to 180 tracks with one click, only PCs powerful). Typically, use less than 100 tracks. Renoise not work well with too many tracks! This tool include 3 monitors to control (tracks index, sequencer count and tracks send).
  • FX Columns & new AUX Track: All FX Columns are collapsed, except options of insert a individual "Main Group", "Group" or "SubGroup". Aux Track included, always collapsed.
  • Note Columns: All Note Columns named "Note" are renamed: Note 01, Note 02, Note 03, Note 04, Note 05, Note 06, Note 07, Note 08, Note 09, Note 10, Note 11, Note 12.
  • New Aux TrackSafe: Neither option destroys, always adds, except the advanced tools.
  • Two integrated Advanced Tools: 1) GTC “Groups & Tracks Control”, specially designed to control all through the groups. Incluye 34 especific controls! You will discover a new way of understanding Renoise with this tool.  2) SPNO “Sort Pitches of Notes per Octaves”. This tool processes any selected track with notes and create a group that containing 10 tracks with 12 Note Columns, representing each octave and eliminating the empty octave tracks, perfect to composing complex melodies.
  • Customizable with 10 slots: if you know the language LUA, you can include your custom tools here. You have 8 free slots. Do you want to expand?
  • Key Commands integrated: include more 40 key commands for control. Combine your keyboard and mouse to máximum control.

Incredible work and beautiful gui work, but what exactly is this tool for? looks so complicated... I normally color tracks and groups by type, so does this tool help me?

 

So I basically would love to have a tool, where I can connect track names or name patterns to colors, like:

 

"%bass%,%duck%" -> blue

"%kick%" -> light blue

"%drums%" -> green

"%pad%,%chord%" -> red

 

etc...

 

So if I name a track "synth bass", it would automatically colored to blue. Or name a ducking send track "duck bass", it also colors to blue.

 

EDIT: Thx to joule for the hint, there is a tool like I described above made by airman: http://forum.renoise...ool-autocolors/

Hi ffx!

 

The tool is made to my liking. You need a little learning...

 

Basically, you can build groups per colors. Then rename them manually according to their groups of instruments. Yes, what you ask is broader, since a color relate to one or more names of instruments.

 

What I can do is create templates grouped colors. This matter had it in mind before creating the tool, but it requires a lot of work. Basically it is adding an additional tab called "templates". Using a drop-down list you have several templates, depending on the style or genre of music. For example, classical, rock, electronic, soundtrack ... With the tool, you could add instrument tracks with missing colors and rename or rectify.

 

In fact, that would be great Renoise includes something similar natively.  Ohhh, you began composing all empty, and with one click have a template prepared with the colors and names associated.

 

I usually compose orchestral and electronic music. I have my templates with a XRNS prepared (with a pattern without notes), with names and colors for groups of instruments. For example, for the group of strings, i use a group of 8 red tracks, agree with the philosophy of this tool:

 

Red Group Strings:

  • 1, 2 tracks: double bass
  • 3, 4 tracks: cello
  • 5, 6 tracks: viola
  • 7, 8 tracks: violin

Things like that...

One of the things I had in mind was to differentiate the tracks of the groups through the intensity of the colors... I wanted to use different intensities in the groups, which operate visually as a separator. Try inserting groups and look the intensities of the colors...

 

But the process is very simple. Select a color, select an option from the list and pressing "insert". Repeat the process... The rest of additional buttons and advanced tools are added to complement the main tool. All together can seem complicated, but it is actually very simple and fast to use. Furthermore, the tool is intended to be expanded at any time. It may add another tab with templates in the future, with the possibility of doing something similar to what you comment.

 

Before, I want to study other tools related colors ("Autocolors", "Auto Track Colors" or similar ), if I think of anything better to save the new code for offering flexible options. From September I will be very busy, with less free time for the code...

NEWS!

I am developing a new Tool Module for GT16-Colors called "AMIC: Aditional MIDI Input Control"

 

GT16-Colors-AMIC-module-tool.png

It is currently in beta version.

 

Basically, it allows you to control specific aditional functions with any MIDI controller, especially designed for MIDI keyboards with additional buttons.

 

These functions or orders are not available on the MIDI Mapping Panel of Renoise 3.1. With this new module (AMIC), will be possible to access new functions, for example:

  • Specific navigation between windows... I suppose I can create functions for this purpose.
  • Collapse track
  • Erase all parameters inside selected track
  • Insert/track group
  • Copy track
  • Paste track
  • ...Similar things

In total I can load up to 45 specific functions. Of course, the module is expandable.

 

Example of a MIDI keyboard:

renoise-midi-mapping-novation-launchkey-61-x1500.png
This keyboard includes 9 buttons below the faders, capable of controlling up to 16 MIDI Channels. This ensures you control 16 x 9 buttons (16 x 9 orders through the MIDI mapping).

 

If any user wants a specific MIDI function (button control), can leave your request in the comments...

 

Do you have a MIDI keyboard? I accept suggestions!

 

Note: In Catalan (my native language) "AMIC" means "friend"   ^_^

New progress...

 

GT16-Colors-AMIC-module-tool-2.png

 

I have included 144 buttons in 2 groups. It will serve to MIDI Keyboards and MIDI Pads controller (8x8 or 4x4).

 

It works fine!  ^_^

Tool: GT16-Colors v1.2b8  …for Renoise 3.1

 

Download GT16-Colors v1.2b8, Tool only

- Note, always download the latest version. Is better...

 

 

===============================================================================

Features GT16-Colors... v1.2b8 -  More advanced stuff for Write Mouse Piano, among other improvements...

This release includes some disparate improvements, most in WMP module ("Write Mouse Piano" advanced tool):

  • PEST module: include a principal button for change the color of selected track or group, with 10 gradients for earch color (total 16 colors).
  • PEST module: checkbox for insert several tracks (up to 8 tracks) with a common color and gradient (total 16 colors).
  • Preferences: include a new name in the list for rename note columns.
  • WMP module: restructured buttons: NCTr, Val and NTr.
  • WMP module: NCTr button interacts with NTr button.
  • WMP module: NTr button interacts with Step Length value (auto in: 01). Now, NTr button work with FXs (sample effects column) also.
  • WMP module: RW NC button work with NTr button. If NTr is activated, clear only the note empty in note column selected.
  • WMP module: INS key (Instrument Key) work with NTr button.
  • WMP module: key notes of virtual piano, repetition rate increased by 100% if Step Lengh is 01.
  • WMP module: Color of buttons changed for clarity.
  • WMP module: DF button (Default), completed.
  • Other small details of the GUI
  • Review of part of the code...

The buttons NCTr (Note Column Tracker) and NTr (Note Tracker) are two "trackers" for edit with speed the values in pattern editor. As a whole it is an incredible tool.

 

Write Mouse Piano (WMP) becomes sophisticated...
GT16-Colors_v1.2b8.png

 

===============================================================================

Features GT16-Colors... v1.2b7 -  More stuff for templates, among other improvements...

This release includes some disparate improvements:

  • PEST module: with a palette of 16 colors to insert a group set with up to 8 tracks (also works with NT, VOL, PAN, DLY, sFX, FX). Great for grouping tracks for the same type of instrument, for example.
  • PEST module: already includes the 3 lists for band style. Need to add 3 lists for Electronic/New Age Style.
  • Preferences: includes enhancements with active buttons to "apply now!".
  • DCSP module: Now includes buttons for "ALL ON" and "BYPASS" to enable or disable all effect chains simultaneously for each track.
  • Top buttons "Swap" (the two blues with curved arrows): improvement in behavior to work better with tracks and especially with groups (in previous versions these two blue buttons did not work as was desirable).
  • Other improvements loose ...

 

Help: Could anyone provide an extensive list of the most commonly used instruments for electronic music and new age music or experimental music? It would serve to complete the 3 lists related to electronic music for PEST module tool . Can anybody help me?

 

Thanks!

The appearance of a template:

GT16-Colors-PEST-01.png

 

===============================================================================

Features GT16-Colors... v1.2b6 -  A lot of things...

They have been enhanced with the rest of the GUI, plus some internal functions related to disordered sequences. This release includes several subsections:

  • Clone control for multiple patterns and button for clone tracks.
  • Clear and delete multiple patterns and tracks control.
  • Multiplier buttons.
  • Color Blend (Background Blend) specific control for individual tracks, subgroups and groups (inclusive sends and master).
  • Rename tracks with associated colors (similar to "Autocolors Tool", but from the tool). 
  • More buttons for navigation and window control.
  • Icons, many many icons...
  • Unification of the appearance of each module. When they were built separately, they were very different. The visual section, more uniform, has been corrected with some modules.
  • Code review...
GT16-Colors_v1.2b6-01.png
GT16-Colors_v1.2b6-02.png

Modules 1, 2 and 3 are practically finished. A lot of list options are missing in modules 1 and 3 (the simplest). The complicated thing was to build the modules. The module 8 (WMP), is practically finished and 100% functional.

 

Please, anyone who downloads the tool, try to break it! If there is any error, please use this forum and report. The tool is already in an advanced state, but will include a lot of things that do not involve building a new code, but repeat several times to list or expand. If you like the tool and something is wrong, it's time to protest.

 

Note: possibly including a briefcase skins.   :D

Using the skin GoldBlue v2

Version 1.2 is a huge leap compared to version 1.1, with lots of new features. Use as a support tool to compose. Learn how to use the controls with the mouse, to get a fast workflow. The WMP is a special Module Tool for me, use it with intensity!!!

 

Please, you keep in mind that it is a beta. You can leave a comment here if you find errors.

 

Thanks!!!

Wow! I already had a conversation with 4Tey on this topic about, the routes in lowercase. It is possible that there is some route without checking. Thank you for letting me know! Thanks 4Tey also!

 

A new version (1.2b1) has been uploaded correcting this type of error. Please, remove the 1.2b version.

 

Meef Chaolin, please try again the new 1.2b1 version and comment if it works well.

 

Thanks you for the report!!!

That is an amazing idea! I can imagine how it can safe many hours of routine work, once you have your patterns, presets, etc.

 

Maybe there is a chance to integrate a module that can map midi notes to any keyboard shortcut?   I mean specifically keyboard shortcuts that are used in the editor via the PC keyboard: [Shift]+[Cursor Down], [Ctrl]+[X], [Ctrl]+[4], etc. At the moment they cannot be controlled via the standard Midi mapping, but it could be very useful if you want to control the whole program via the midi controller. (Advanced tool #9 or inside of AMIC?)  :dribble:

Thanks Meef Chaloin! Enjoy the tool. Little by little there will be more versions. One conceptual idea that fulfills this tool is that it acts as a briefcase. That you uninstall renoise, reinstall renoise and only install this tool and you have everything installed. It's focused on my needs, but I'm sure it will serve other users. Some areas need a little learning. I will try not to touch too much on future versions, so as not to spoil what has been learned.

 

Enjoy!

Wo this is a nice tool!  Really nice to have a graphical piano.  And also has EMP!! Didn't Airwolf have that, too?  :drummer:

You are very close to the overall idea of the AMIC module. This module includes lots of buttons to assign specific functions. You can try some buttons in the first 4 lines, some functions are working, they are only for test. The tool has a drop-down list for each function of each button, to know what it is. You will see that it is a beta. They are 144 buttons, but could be 288 if you wanted, wildly.

 

The problem is that just the AMIC module is the tool with more work. It involves creating a function for each button, and many are totally new functions. To address what you want, it is possible with some functions. But I would have to try thoroughly. For example, it may be possible to select blocks by reference to the position of the cursor For example:

  • A function select a block of 16 rows and copy. And other function to paste in position of cursor. (I have not tried it, I do not know if I can separate these commands into 2 separate functions)
  • In general, you can assign any function related to manipulating anything in the pattern editor or in the matrix. The theme is to create the function. I already tried some with amazing results. Create a new song, try the 4A orange button in AMIC (add a metronome) and play song. It is possible to create infinite metronomes. It is an example of so many. The 9M red buton clone the estructure and visual of a track or a group (only one level.). Some functions need to be reviewed.

What I intend with this tool is to have more agility with the 3 peripherals (alphanumeric keyboard, mouse, and MIDI keyboard). In AMIC I intend to include what I call multipliers, Functions that "repeat" an order for work faster, in the composition.

 

If you want, leave a list of functions that you want, and I will try to study.

I will never understand, because Renoise has a virtual piano, and does not work with the mouse to edit in the pattern editor. Last summer I discussed this in the forum. The mania of always using the alphanumeric keyboard for almost everything. 

With the mouse and a virtual tool you can do authentic wonders. The theme is to have ample tools for all peripherals, mouse inclusive. I've always missed a virtual piano for editing. One limitation of the API is that it does not allow you to illuminate the keys when playing notes in the pattern editor. The GUI is a bit poor, but ...

 

You already know that I have the help of other members of the forum. With a little patience it is possible to add more functions yet. This is a beta, or demo. At least the virtual piano is almost finished. An automatic drop-down list is missing to describe each effect. A window that grows underneath.

 

And a reflection. Everything created without modifying anything about Renoise. Imagine what a professional encoder can create in just one month of work. I am a newbie. I do not want to comment any more. You already know the situation very well.

 

EMP? What exactly do you mean?


A tip. You can try a rename the names of the tracks and the names of instruments quickly. How about? It's fast? Use the mouse wheel, do not display the lists of numbers (if it is not necessary)...

EMP - just a joke.

Strange decisions, I agree. Yes its already build-in, so could be decoupled from instrument view?   Personally I don't need it, but I can understand it also can help.

I don't understand this sentence... You want to add this to your tool? I am usually using the airmann's tool "auto-colors", it colors by name. It's a bit rudimentary in config, but totally works non-complicated, after initial setup. I usually colorize tracks by type: For example bass + kick blue, lead+melody = yellow, bass side chain = blue, reverb sends = grey and white, pads, chords = red etc.  I find that more practical for me, if I return later back to the project.

I mean the process of changing names. Some people have complained about this. Changing the name on tracks or instruments is not very fast in Renoise. In the tool, I do not know if it is easily seen that it is possible to change the names.

 

I studied a little the Autocolors tool. By the way, GT16-Colors and Autocolors are not very compatible, for obvious reasons. When the module PEST is finished I think I can add a checkbox for "autocolors", which would function similarly (type a specific name, and automatically change color of track).

 

I also want to add an empty row detector (note empty), to avoid writing effect parameters (vol, pan, dly, fx) for the virtual piano. I have seen that joule is working on something similar. Something like that: If the next row is empty, do not write and skip to the next row. Long time ago I created a function that avoided writing the effects but within following a continuous jump, which is not the same (the jump should always be <2 to not ignore lines).

 

EMP!!! You should have put the video before!!!  :panic:  :panic:  :panic:

It takes a little humor... and Blue Thunder???
