I have an idea for an added feature for this tool - an interactive Circie of 5ths dial where you can try out and project implement many of the current harmony related experiments like negative harmony and the Lydian Chromatic Concept of tonal harmony etc. Any plans to release it soon?
It might be a bit troublesome to translate some of the descriptions of chords and scales in the cycle of fifths into useful note data for the pattern editor in renoise because renoise does not use flats or even some of the sharps in the cycle of fifths (such as E#, B#). It could be more efficient to use a cycle of fifths app outside of renoise.
In classical music theory there is a rule that F must be followed by G, so if a scale contained an F and an F#, they must use Gb instead of F#, because there is already an F. The system used in trackers does away with this rule so it is fine to use an F followed by an F# or a C followed by a C#. There is also no longer any need for E# or double sharp or whatever.
he sight reads, has perfect pitch, has an immaculate ear
This my app recommendation for learning sight-reading in the treble and bass clefs. Notetrainer.
This is my app recommendation for learning perfect pitch (The exercise is called ear training inside the main app, which is an awesome guitar theory app), SmartChord:
I am not talking about deciphering or composing with chords like CM7, dm7, GAug but rather C13b9#11, dmM9b9, BM7#11/G and the infinite substitutions that go in between. Its not about what I or anyone can or cannot do - its got more to do with making the translation process simpler since the music itself can get very very complicated very fast.
You can find the notes which make up the structure of these kind of chord descriptions in a chord dictionary such as piano companion...you might not get C13b9#11 but you can definitely get C13b9 and go from there.
Regarding your point on a vertical waveform view - I personally would hate that since it would make my focus shift from my ears and the note entry precision to a regular visual feedback mode.
I know what you mean but I'm a fan of the audiotracks idea because I feel like they would be good for long samples, like vocals or guitar solos. It is already possible to have a long recording or sample play on through multiple patterns though.
I also play guitar and I would LOVE to have a tuner in Renoise. Again I can use my ears to tune accordingly and I have other phone apps, but seriously why would Renoise NOT have a guitar tuner if Ableton does. Think about it!
I recommend G-tune. It is free and works very well. It is also good for tuning short looped samples or single cycle waveforms.
