in the last week i was so busy at renoise that i missed to go at a really important date.
This was not the first time that i need an alarm function. I work fullsize and dont have the system-clock in front.
What about a feature to set alarm-beep or alarm-text?
An alarmclock in your room still gives audio while Jack is being used. Also your mobile phone probably has an alarmclock that you can hear.
In sincere honesty i say that this idea is one of the few ideas that should not be taken in serious consideration because it is way too off-topic.
Watching the time is your own responsibility, not that of any particular application that you are working with.
By off-topic i mean:This idea has nothing to do with music production whatsoever.
There is a very big fat wishlist an enormous amount of users desire to have implemented in Renoise.
An alarmclock would most likely get the lowest priority if it gets on that list. Estimated:It is not entirely impossible it would end up on it though, but i don’t consider this idea has much chances.
It is not hard to judge whether an idea fits within the concept music or audio production or not in this case, everybody here is in the position to be able to judge that, not just me.
Could you consider an explanation for that?
I already see the LoL situations where the live performer on stage suddenly gets an alarmbell with a dialog in the middle of his performance to remind him that he has to call his mother after his concert.
Well, it’s definitely positive that you were so much into Renoise that you forgot about time. Many of us will atest to that.
But you’re going to have to accept that this particular suggestion will get you some negative feedback.
It took several years for the clock that was removed in 1.5 to come back in 2.0 (fullscreen). It became an ongoing joke. Renoise has a long sordid history involving “clocks” that you evidently missed out on. But low and behold, years later, it made a come back. So you never know.
That said, your suggestiong has been made, the devs will read it, and if I were you I would bow out gracefully.
Some suggestions get +1, others don’t. Is this really something you’re willing to fight about? There are obviously many 3rd party solutions. Renoise is not an operating system.
