16bit Samples

as I understand it, all samples are converted to 32bit when loaded, an option for 16bit resolution would be nice, for all those tiny/chip/tracked-music-competitions … so we would be able to squeeze twice the samples in our tunes.

No, the samples are converted to 16 bit. You can check the size of the .rns file.

The Renoise internal audio resolution is 32 bit. So maybe the temporary audio files are 32 bit, but that only hurts the RAM, if that’s your concern.

But I’d like to see an option to set the bitrate of saved files, like from 8-32 bit.
