I use a multitude of daws, -at the same time-, routing one to the other, for my productions. My ears are picky for each process,...
I also have a fair amount of producing and audio engineering experience and formal qualifications. (conservatively 37-14=23 years of recording tunes of which 37-17.5=19.5 are through computers).
I am saying this because :
a _ I'm a pretty informed demographic that uses renoise very seriously,
b _ I already use renoise in my studio a lot and would love to use it further and deeper.
c _ I tried to go over most previous posts but at some point i was like ok this is pretty much uninformed and someone should say something and couldn't keep on reading.
[so excuse me if i'm repeating anything previously mentioned.]
In semi-artistic terms, renoise is very TRUTHFULL in its essence.
As a tracker it deals with info as info and tick as tick. it also allows you to VERY VERY ACURATELY define that info, and it reproduces it with a pretty outstanding CLOCK (for software)
Also, wtf, music when i hear it does not travel from left to right
Not to mention that the info modulation when typed is more than decent...
Assuming that music is PARTLY definition of TIME, DYNAMICS and REPETITION, Renoise is an amazing tool!!!!!
Nevertheless, by PARTLY i mean PARTLY and to be honest i am ok with that.
Renoise's analyzer paradigm might be exquisite for a native analyzer, but it is certainly inferior to specific multianalyzers out there. and that is a good thing because that's not its point (to be the best multi analyzer) !
Renoise's envelopes are tight but not the tightest and not the most user friendly in terms of inputing accuracy.
Renoise might have decent summing but it does not have amazing summing, nor of course horrible summing)
bout 7 years ago i realized it is impossible to work with 1 DAW because X does this better and Y does that better and i had had enough compromising and disrupting my workflow to go from one to the next.
i use X daw for the main programming, Y daw for the editing, Z daw for the summing, XYZ daw for recording and monitoring....as much as possible this is real time with routing...
EVERYTIME I WANT TO HAVE RENOISE DOING MORE! - BUT IT CANT AND IT BUGS ME CAUSE OTHER DAWS DO...
SO I'VE ALSO BEEN FUMING FOR AN UPDATE TOO!
I suppose we would each love to see that next update suiting us...
so here is what i would need from renoise's next update for my circumstance.
.Proper through-track audio infrastructure and routing/ proper 4channel sidechains
.User friendly Swing settings per pattern per track
.ablity to see structure from left to right or XML structure somehow or ideally to get in-touch with the other rewires[:)] and figure out how to communicate the fking project markers from one DAW to the next....
.a DEEP sample editor in terms of actions (like x40)
and now that i think about it i would pay an extra 20 easily to have renoise and redux in the same package so that i can pick and choose the tracker phrase paradigm however i want...
In general i think there are beautiful ideas in renoise that i use every day,
but it needs to open up so that it can coexist realtime.
ok it's a tracker and we all proud of that, but it don't need to be an isolated tracker DAW,
Speaking of my use, it could be the center of my studio, but it is not because of details, and i'd love it to be...
be well all,
it's my day off so i'm a bit loose forum-ing [:)]
be well all,
