Seriously, I do not know what you want to get with this topic. What is this? Those who whimper against those who whimper? If you are disturbed by some comments, try to understand the nature of the people, and ignore if necessary. Pay attention to what is really interesting. And in these forums there are very interesting things...
In what I have been doing in these forums for a long time, I have read many topics from many users. Some of them have been with Renoise for many years and know him very well, and make music with him and do not have to demonstrate their compositions in the forums. These people deserve a lot of respect. They just want to enjoy this magnificent DAW. But there are certain things that can be improved and these people insist that Renoise improve. So all these people want Renoise to keep evolving. There's no more. And that's because of how big Renoise is. If Renoise were a piece of shit, nobody would care. But hey, it seems like people like it!!!
There may be people on the forums who think and comment, make mistakes, or ask for things that Renoise already has. It would not be the first time. But that is a superficial view of what happens in the forums, which, in my opinion is much more complex.
I do not think it's about putting two sides or something: those who defend updates, and those who do not. That here in the forums there are very serious people giving opinions and leave great ideas and suggestions. And it is not the first time that the people go to another place precisely because Renoise gives the feeling of not having continuity. By the way, others users make tools, and the available API can also receive improvements.
How can you complain about going in favor of the updates? In my opinion, It is not necessary to add fuel to the fire... Besides, this is not a new situation, it seems. No matter how much you defend one thing or the other, there will be people commenting and hoping that Renoise improves. It is the most logical thing. In addition, most people who bring ideas, or want more concrete improvements, comments with all the respect of the world. It is not necessary to defend anything. This situation is normal.
There are thousands of entries aimed at improving Renoise, or finding a better way to do such a thing. If no one contributed their ideas, suggestions and tried to improve certain things, these forums would have little content. Yes, there would be some songs and some shared files, and talk about other things that do not really matter. If Renoise is what it is, it is also thanks to these forums and all that content, also of those people who "whine". You just have to read from 2010 until now. You will see the things there are.
But hey, this is all fun. The truth is that when a new update comes out, it will come out, everyone like crazy to download it. So, make music, enjoy what you already have and continue to contribute those magnificent ideas and suggestions, because that's just the constructive thing, and well, apparently everybody complains. Oh, and I also encourage people to learn how to make tools. With this, Renoise will be better mastered. There is a whole open field to explore, and as it seems, many people ignore. That is also an important part of Renoise, the philosophy of building your own tools to better master Renoise, along the way you will find many ideas and suggestions to contribute to the community.
But you're not going to fool anyone Deep down everyone wants to see those happy updates . Much patience! Everything will come!
