As the original post regarding this is closed, I'd just like to add that I have been producing with Renoise since I first heard of it and I have enjoyed the program for many years now. Whenever I answered the "what program are you using?" question, I often got the "I am not familiar with it" reply from other producers.

 

While most of them are used to the horizontal approach (meaning most other DAW's out there), they also always seemed intrigued by Renoise as I was often able to mention features their programs of choice did not feature or featured on a different level. I certainly hope that development on the program will continue. Of course, I am curious about any other software the Renoise team might develop but for now, Renoise is and will continue to be my DAW of choice. It does exactly what I want it to do and more and every added feature always made my workflow more fluid and generally better.

 

I have written 8 albums as DJ Hidden/The Outside Agency, lots of singles and of course several other releases using other names with the program and I never felt the need to switch to something else. So... I just wanted to say to its developers: please never completely stop your work on this excellent piece of software - unless it is to replace it with something even better. ;)

Lol, don't get greedy ;-)

Renoise already offers almost anything you need. If there was an update soon, i think i wouldn't install it. To be honest, i don't like those "overfeatured" all in one DAWs. The more features you you add,

the more ressources you need and the more unstable and confusing a programm might become.

 

Sure, sometimes it would be cool having the possibility of horizontal editing, or at least looking at a sample curve like you have in Ableton or cubase, instead of watching at a floating code.

VST3 support, multi-language support and a more powerful Sample editor might also be nice.

But it's still a Tracker and not a sequencer, that's why i have chosen renoise.

 

I've been using renoise since 2.7, and i think i still haven't discovered all of its opportunities. So update for what? Its powerful, it's stable, and there is only one bug making me trouble sometimes.

 

Sometimes Renoise refuses to start, if a former connected sound source / sounddriver has been removed or is in use. It should start anyways, and after that you might be able to select a new one.

But thats the only prob i experienced up to now

The only thing I care about is that it will work on next operating systems, I like it the way it is.

 

I'm going back to my little studio, I listened to DJ Hidden's music, and Outside Agency got me really inspired :) Thanks for the great music man!

Renoise is like a good wine. It needs to age, don't touch it! Changes are not good anyway and just confusing.

The only missing thing I really want in Renoise is a native Nibbles.

 

You could argue that the Lua scripted Nibbles is good enough, however, in today's world only a C++ coded Nibbles would deliver the required speed to compete with the other DAWs out there. 

 

It's really disappointing that we don't have a native Nibbles after all these years, and I hope taktik will come to his senses and that his new secret project is aiming to approach this particular issue seriously.

I like wine, but Linie Akvavit has the best idea. Basically, put the bottle on board a ship and then let it cruise across the world - crossing the equator a couple of times. 

Supposedly, the gentle movement of the waves should make it taste better. 

 

Now I wonder how that could be translated into the digital domain. Special edition copies that have been transmitted by laser to the moon and back?

Ah now I see why the bugfix was delayed and rns 3.2 is on hold. Always technical problems with the lasers, and the engineers to fix them are currently busy doing something with the large hadron collider at cern...

 

What about the special bass boosting circuit you promised us for 3.2? I mean the one that doesn't let a speaker cone vibrate, but the whole planet earth by electromagnetic manipulation from the moon, for that real rumble low end...it didn't get approved due to concerns regarding possible abuse as weapon of mass destruction?

Why does everyone want renoise to be pro tools? All this feature creep is going to kill it. You bought renoise cause you were sick of running fast tracker 2 in dosbox or using ass trackers like mod plug. Quit picking on the devs!

Heh, the nice thing about it is, that renoise is already so crazily improved over old progs like ft2, that it is already able to yield top quality results like the top notch daws if you do it right. Thus people expect it to be able to also do the last missing links for it being comparable in power to those big daws. Thats it, and then they love renoise so much, that they love the forum into bits and pieces, but finally don't succeed in it, and then...

Nope. I expect an update once a year. That's all. And that's acceptable.

I'm here just to add another line of respect, and want to support the longlivity of Renoise bigtime.

Yes, I am the one that spawned the many posts since 2001 to add 1 single feature.

But I feel sorry about it now that the most important piece of software on my PC has its 'hard times'.

 

Taktik, if you ever scroll through this, i'd advise you to ask the large community whatever you need.

It be time, money, more developers or helping hands in other ways - everything can be achieved with the large Renoise community.

I cannot thank you enough for the countless memories, inspiration and joy your creation has given us all.

Yes, I bought a modern tracker because technological advancement had obsoleted the old ones. Now I face the situation that technological advancement (high-dpi displays) is threatening to obsolete Renoise. There is no real alternative, though, which is why I keep sticking around and hoping for high-dpi support in a Renoise update. I don't miss any other features. :)

hell yeah, in my top ten list of best albums of all time (upper half^^).

 

 

returning to renoise topic:

 

i am still working more with renoise than with live or bitwig. i still enjoy editing my music inside the tracker-view a lot more than any miniaturized waveform-view or midi-view.

I hope for updating the vibrato and tremelo commands so they cycle in time + audiotracks (vertical?) for more easily adding guitar or vocals in one take instead of using lots of offset commands. Also a simple native synth like morphsynth or customwave that doesnt need to render waveforms, just plays. Those things would be very good
