808/Sub Bass Glides

Hey all, I’m new to renoise having came from Ableton. I’m wondering if anybody can help me.

Is it possible to do bass glides like in this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvOVhUu34Dg&list=RDek4VjsK94Lc

Currently I’ve used a similar bass sample and tried to use glides to no avail. I can’t even get the glide feature to work with a sample.

I’ll dig around some more, I just wanted to know if it’s possible to do with Renoise fx to save me barking up the wrong tree.

Thanks all.

Are you using the Uxx / Dxx commands? That’s how I do it.

Just checked the docs, that’s slide up and down. No I haven’t tried that. Thanks will try now.

I feel like a bit of an idiot now. I was typing the effects commands into the master fx strip. I didn’t realise I had to check the “fx” button at the bottom of the tracker to show them.

When I type in a fx command by hand, such as entering the letter u during record mode, it inserts U000 and places the cursor on the next line. Is it possible to have it not go to the next line so I can enter the hex value of the effect?

Try holding down the shift key when you type the letter and numbers(?)

No luck :frowning:

Oh I see, you are entering into a note fx column. You can just enter into a standard fx column (with the shift key).

Note to @taktik, shift key should hold the line advancement of the cursor when entering effects into a note fx column?

Thank you, that works fine :slight_smile:

You can set the edit step advance.

If you set it to 0 (zero), the cursor will stay on that line.

You can use
CTRL+the numbers on top of your keyboard and CTRL+minus / CTRL+plus ( = ).

under the Pattern Editor:

to access the step of 0 you would need to press CTRL+0 (zero) on top of your keyboard.

To add a Glide speed 10 (hexadecimal) effect to a note, set it up like this:

You will need to set a Sample Based instrument to MONO in the Keyzones tab of the Sampler, and select a default Glide value.
