It would be great if Renoise had some additional record modes.
As an example I’ll use the record modes of the yamaha v50 workstation I used to create my songs on.
In Realtime recording mode you could choose 2 conditions:
Replace (replace the previous recorded measures)
Overdub (add to the previous recorded measures)
Punch-in recording mode allowed you to re-record only a specified measure or measures using realtime recording.
You specified the playback position and the beginning (in) and end (out) of the measures to be re-recorded.
Next you would press play and the sequencer would go to record mode when between the in & out points.
Well, you can record each track seperately and you can use a mastering tool to do that kind of stuff because that is what you are aiming at:mastering and addition of live performance.
It is not something you really can expect from a tracker.
It would be cool if it could do so however… but it’s a hard feature to code as i understand the programmers so don’t expect it soon to come.
