I’m getting into Unity, which is one of the best and most popular game development platforms.
Now, as I’m composing music for my Unity projects with Renoise, there are some very simple additions that would Renoise a much tool for composing for Unity projects. Maybe some of these things can be scripted though, maybe I should find out.
Per-song render settings
In Unity, when I double click a Renoise song asset, Renoise automatically opens and I can edit the song. However, when I hit Render, I always want it to render a 16-bit file to …\Sound Effects\Awesome Song.wav relative to where the song file sits. However, I may want another song to render to another default path and file name.
What this would mean to me is that I’d be able to double click a Renoise song asset in Unity, edit and render it, without having to dig into any folder selection dialogs, and jump back into Unity and having it integrated into my game at once.
Also, I’m sure that song-specific render settings would be useful for more people as well.
Launch a command line after rendering
This would allow me to automatically have the song converted to Ogg Vorbis directly after rendering, which Unity supports.
It’d be amazing if an option existed to merge the audio rendered from the last pattern with the beginning of the song. This would let me control how all instruments should decay in the last pattern, and produce a perfect loop, which is great for game music.
