I’ve been lurking on this forum and using the Renoise demo from time to time, for almost a year and a half now. Every time I’d get excited about Renoise and start trying to make music with it, I’d miss one of my personalized tools and go running back to my usual sequencer, abandoning the demo for again, but taking some of the ideas I came up with in Renoise with me.
With the release of the 2.0 demo, I’ve been using Renoise more and more, slowly wrapping my brain around its different workflow and getting comfortable with the pattern editor. It’s taken forever, but I’m finally ready to become a registered user and will be purchasing my license this week.
A big part of my decision to finally become a registered user has to do with this community. So, to thank everyone for their help, whether you know you provided it or not, here are a few instruments I put together for Renoise using samples from my collection of cheesy, 80s Yamaha drum machines.
I recently built a GetLoFi Fuzz Kit and ran the Yamaha RX17 through it, recording the result, so I have that instrument available for you all as well.
If you’re interested in learning more about any of these drum machines, I have short write-ups on my blog at the following links. The blog is focused on Propellerheads’ Reason, so if you also use that program, you might find some other, useful files there.
Thanks for all of your help and openness, even if it wasn’t always directed at me. I’ve learned a lot by reading through these forums, paying attention when other people asked questions, and coming back to Renoise again and again, even when I thought I was finished with it. I think that persistence has really paid off, because this is one of the most informed buying decisions I’ve ever made.
Thanks again, everyone!
