I’m demoing different software for workflows that differ from Ableton. Someone mentioned Renoise on another forum and I just got around to downloading and installing.
Any advice/suggestions that will make it easier for me to get started? A quick look at it and I noticed that it seems to work vertically instead of a horizontal timeline, which is weird but kind of cool too. I have plenty of VST’s i’d like to use so hopefully that’s encourage with Renoise? I keep reading where samplers are important in Renoise but I don’t care for samplers that much. I prefer to take a initial software synthesizer and patch it the way I like it…at a very low level if possible. In fact, the other piece of standalone software I will be using is Max 8 (I won’t be using Ableton with Renoise if I choose this tracker), anyone using Max with Renoise? If so, how do they like it? I know it supports Rewire so I should be about to route my audio from Max into it pretty easily.
Lastly, unfortunately I’m stuck with a Push as a controller (Push 1 version). Is there any software taht will make it easy for me to work with Renoise and Push 1? I don’t know anything about this software here => https://www.nativekontrol.com/PXT-General.html but is this a good choice? Are there any free apps out there for Push + Renoise? I mostly want just general control, nothing fancy.
