I really don't get your immense amount of stubbornness here, Taktik. Really seems that nobody can convince you for another perspective.
Renoise is not that bad (as you call it), and also could be more than a niche product - If you would sell it differently, by changing the marketing. But if yourself say even, that it is not worth to develop head a head with other DAWs - well, all is lost then. Also a tracker view is not so much limited in comparison to a piano roll. And this is really mostly the only drastic difference, Renoise is already a good DAW with lot of unique features. Really good features.
Also that you now tell me, that all my feature requests are "very individual wishes" and you simply could not fulfill all those millions of individual wishes - sorry, but it is not true that it's so many different requests or that those are so individual.
I really tried to give you some motivation/inspiration esp. in improving the already existing structures in Renoise. And besides this, of course suggesting obvious things like "side chaining" or obvious missing parameters in dsps. Those kind of requests exist here in the forum for about a decade now. It is repeated over and over again. But it is still only one feature request, in different variants.
New users come here to the forum and of course requesting lot of individual stuff or piano rolls at beginning, because they don't know for years, whats going on here and a feature request section really implies that somebody cares about all those requests. On the other hand, most long-time users request the same stuff over and over again.
Ok, thanks for answering at least. Happy New Year for you and your team.
I think you are right. A lot of my friends never heard about Renoise and when they've seen it they were very surprised how powerful it is.
There is at least one genre where Renoise excels -> Grime. And this genre is very hip right now.
Classic grime tunes were made in old Fl Studio where everybody just loaded samples and they pitched them.
Nothing more, nothing less. No automatization (Renoise is the worst DAW in this manner), just short weird samples that are pitched and effected.
I don' t know about any other daw than Renoise (and FL Studio) that are so good / effective in this... But nobody in the east London knows about the Renoise .
