I wouldn't worry about the potential audience. If every artist, or writer or musician worried about whether their product would have an audience and let it stop them, then nothing interesting would ever be made. Make it knowing that their might not be much of an audience, but having something out there historical about this is better than having nothing at all, so it's an important, if thankless job. I would read your book anyway.

So true.

 

And I would love if I could pick up something like a coffeetable book covering the history of trackers in general, and not just Renoise in particular.

By the coffeetable format, I mean something that aims to inspire, not educate. Nothing gets more quickly outdated than a manual...

@skyscape and @danoise thank you very much for the support and good points in general. A coffee table format would be indeed fantastic, I am still thinking about the best way to present the final book and the tone etc. All points are welcome :)

The market is a niche, so maybe write a book how to transition from one of the big DAWs to Renoise. Though I would not try to convince anyone to stop using a DAW that has very few deficiency like Bitwig. Maybe you could do a comparison with FL Studio which is a good reference in general. I mean, just if it's really like bungle and you assume to some exent that no one would read a 100% Renoise book.

Its not like what Bungle says (he is funny :)). Its just that the effort has never been made till now. If so, then please name any previous 'bombed' books or whatever. I get it, its a niche thing, but then a lot of things are niche in todays world. While not everything niche warrants its own 'book' - trackers and Renoise have a weight to them that warrants getting a book out. Your points are good and I will take it into account while building the TOC. 100% Renoise is certainly a plan, but not just yet, first we have to warm the waters. Thanks!
