Is there any way to define default effects for channels? There are a lot of effects that I use on just about every channel – HPF, EQ, compression, and a couple send devices, in particular. I’d love it if I didn’t have to manually add these things every time I add a new channel to the mix.
You can also save a startup song, like a blank template with the effects you want that will be loaded on startup and when you do a new song. Not really what you wanted either, but at least its something.
Yeah I understood exactly what you meant and I think it would be a cool feature. I just figured I’d give some info that might help you out right now since you weren’t very clear whether you’d already tried this method or not.
Yeah, I’ve done both of the above mentioned work-arounds, but I still find myself constantly creating new channels – my default setup has a dozen or so channels ready to rock, but I usually add 4-6 new channels for each song, which requires me to load the dsp chains 4-6 times. Not terribly much work, actually, but anything that interrupts my creative flow is a little irritating. =)
One idea is to add a button like the “startup song”, but for the track fx chain. The technology behind it could also work the same, i.e. a fx chain file that is stored in the Renoise dir and loaded for each new channel.
