I am trying to write lyrics since I can't get anyone else to do it.. So while jamming out a melody for the lyrics I think of lyrics at the same time and so I got this idea of having a Lyrics track that is simply a track with a new textfield per row.

 

My scenario would then be to put this new lyrics track next to a normal melody track that a singer is supposed to follow.

There's  a tool called Track Comments that allows you to associate a comment (shown in a popup window) with a track.

 

https://www.renoise..../track-comments

 

 

There's also a tool called Track Pattern Comments that allows you to associate a comment with every line in every track pattern (with some numeric limitations).

 

*That* tool only lives on my computers because I've slacked off on testing (i.e. using it a whole lot) and releasing it.  But it's what I've been using (more or less) for lyrics (as well as notes on stuff related to activity in specific track patterns).

 

Once I finish up a few other things (album completions for the most part) I'll go about releasing my track-pattern comment tool.

 

You can, of course, also use the song comments for lyrics.

 

Update: I uploaded the beta version of the Track Pattern Comments tool here: https://neurogami.com/code/

 

There are links to the code README and a direct download of the xrnx file.

I have tried your plugin. There's a bug that seem to remove all your texts if you accidentally add text on a row without a NGxx effect command.

I don't understand what you mean by "accidentally add text on a row without a NGxx effect command".

 

Can you you give me a step-by-step I can follow to reproduce this?  Thanks!

Imagine you have text on line 01 and 03 and then add text on row 5 then the text on row 01 and 03 disappears.

 

01 NG01

02 -- --

03 NG02

04 -- --

05 -- --

01 NG01

02 -- --

03 NG02

04 -- --

05 -- --

 

How did NG01 and NG02 get in the same track pattern?  

 

If they were added by hand and not by using the tool then the tool has no record of them in the comment index (which is stored as a single chunk of text in the song comments).

 

Then, if you use the tool to try to read those hand-entered fx entries it has no record for them and so cant find them.

 

All the NGxx fx entries have to be added by the tool in order for the tool to know they exist and to create space for the comments.

 

(They exception is if you've already used the tool to insert a comment; you can then re-use the inserted fx elsewhere because the tool knows about it.)
