This is a real testament to the program itself, but since I’ve returned to Renoise I can’t stand to be looking at Ableton for more than a few minutes. Even with custom themes in Ableton I’m quickly longing for Renoise GUI.
I used to feel like Ableton Live was the pinnacle of GUI achievement, not so much anymore.
It’s still got some nice features, but most can be done in Renoise if I really think out of the box.
The only thing I really miss is the session view and recording to arrange view. If Renoise had a way to sequence the patterns as blocks just like session view, into a final tracked arrangement, I’d sell my copy of Ableton and Max4Live tomorrow.
I just wish Renoise would have been as awesome as it is today when I spent my hard earned on Ableton products.
Oh well. Studio One is tolerable, but it’s also like Meh.
