I'm on Linux so I don't have access to quite the same range of plugins, nor have I found Renoise to be limiting (pardon the pun) my creativity just yet; my total lack of musical talent is still the main cause ;-)
But one thing that is missing for me is a multiband compressor. After using my own processor for a bit I recently connected the excellent StereoTool up to Renoise's output, bridging the audio using ALSA, and have been trying that. See screenshot if you're interested.
Previously I would use the "Multiband Send" in Renoise to to send to a Low, Mid and Hi which I could compress and process separately. StereoTool has a fixed chain with two sets of multiband processing in sequence, each with compression and limiting, and then some other processing.
What else are people using as the master chain on their tracks? Especially on Linux. Is everyone using external VSTs?
Using an external tool isn't too bad, but I'd love to do more in Renoise. One thing I'm interested in is access some of the bass growl like an Optimod processor -- the power to massively over-process things in a controlled way would be useful, just so I can then conciously choose dial it back to something civilised.
