I just found a bunch of renoise sketches on my HD, and surprisingly I liked quite a few of them. Now I’m in the process of burning them to a CD to listen to them in the car, before deciding which ones to finish. So far so good.
Since I’m running linux my perferred way of doing this would be:
ls *.xrns | xargs -iarg renoise -r arg
which would generate every xrns in a directory to wav. But since no commandline options exist, I’m hoping this could be added. I do realize that a no-gui, renoise2wav utility would be too much work, but how about making the -r (“r” for render) switch work as if I: 1) open the xrns file with renoise, 2) press shift-control-r + return and 3) press Alt-f4 (quit)?
I think this would make life easier for users that (like me) prefer to write scripts for as much as possible (including “generate up-to-date mp3 files for the album I’m working on and copy them to my phone, my webpage and dropbox”).
