Indeed the Renoise forum is legendary.
Quoting this because it's so true. I love this forum :-)
I don't spend nearly as much time here as I want to, even already limiting it to just posting about technical stuff and crazy hacks I've come up with (to be fair I might actually be better at that than making actual finished tracks but that's cool, my road's always been an odd one). I love the fact that there's a bunch of people here who think about music & sound in a similar way as I do, know their DSP fundamentals and we're all trying to punch the same tool into doing whatever we want
And of course the demoscene roots. To be a bit more exact the tracking scene was a separate thing, but we did mingle at the parties (used to be a 4k democoder back in the day, released my last 4096b at Mekka & Symposium 2000, not very good with the music back then so I got help for the patterns, but I did hand-code my own homebrew 1100 byte softsynth--part of that last 4k--which is where I got my DSP chops), but we come from the same nest :-)
Oh and besides that, we just got a nice vibe here, everyone. Happy holidays and such! ^^
