Well, I have already purchased my new 34" monitor, the one I have mentioned above, the Samsung SJ55W, (34", 3440x1440 px, 21:9, VA). The screen measures 82'5x36'7 cm, with a framework of 1'1cm. I use Windows 10. I'll just say that I do not recommend Renoise (unmodified) for this screen size or higher. I would only recommend Renoise for HD 1920x1080 screens, until Taktik upgrades to a high resolution version. The reason is the size of the fonts and also the size of the buttons, is too small. I do not recommend it to anyone.
However, for those who have monitors around 2K or WQHD, it is possible to increase the Renoise font by 2 points by modifying the XML files in the Fonts folder. (...\Renoise 3.1.1\Resources\Skin\Fonts). By adjusting these values with Renoise closed, you can play a bit with the size of the fonts without untying them from their boxes, but the buttons will still be very small. This is a "hidden trick" that is halfway to being a solution. There is no choice but to wait for Taktik to launch a new version for high resolutions.
For me, acquiring a large format monitor is a very big effort, it involves changing the graphics card and the monitor, and both products together are worth a lot of money. This is unpleasant with most monitors, which do not have an LED refresh fast enough to show the movement of the pattern in the playback without looking blurry.
I have already tried 5 different monitors, IPS, VA... and they all have the same problem (I use a dark theme). What happens is that the LED is not able to recover the color when it is changed fast enough, generating a blurring effect in the movement of the parameters. This is really annoying.
I mention it for those people who want to buy a large monitor. It is not only the size of the sources, but also the speed of the LEDs of the monitors. This seems contrary to the idea that the problem may appear in games. In games, being larger images, that small blur is not appreciated. Only that blur appears when you move very small objects, or the letters of a line in Renoise when the moving pattern is playing, especially when the BPM and LPB are high.
For me, who also uses Renoise's Scriptint Terminal Editor, it has become a serious problem with this 34" monitor. I have to keep my old 24" HD monitor in order to use this editor. This is because it is not possible to modify the font size of the Scriptint Terminal Editor. Yes, I also use Notepad++, and fixed issue. But it is a real pity to have an integrated editing tool, and it can not be used because there is a lack of an option to increase the text font.
In summary, I DO NOT recommend 2K or higher for Renoise 3.1. There are too many eye problems, both for those who wear glasses and for those who do not wear glasses. Wait for Taktik to launch a new version for high resolutions or directly use another DAW...
Edit: I forgot another important issue. When using window tools (tools XRNX), if you modify the size of the fonts with the XML files, much of the format of the window will be deformed, because when increasing the fonts, they force the boxes to be larger. This is another problem that I suppose Taktik will have to deal with his new version, if he is working on that. I have no idea.
