I was still using 3.1.1 (reverted from 3.2 because I don’t really like it for some reason) and today I upgraded to 3.3. As always I have my full backup, so I can compare things.
First - everything looks… worse, like in 3.2. Really - this thin font is ugly. But that’s not important. More important is - it sounds different! Not big difference but still.
http://www.thrash.pl/newvsold.zip - two very small fragments of wav. One rendered on 3.1.1, one (from the same song) on 3.3. Both versions have the same parameters (mixing quality, play quality etc).
So why these differences? Sorry that I can’t give longer example. And it seems to affect samples mostly, not plugins as far as I know.
Sure, I can finish my projects using old Renoise and then switch to new one, but… I want to know why these differences? If it’s some kind of mixing improvement - I can live with that and adjust to “new and better”. If answer is “no way, it should sounds the same, nothing has changed in that matter” then… well, then we will see. Maybe I made upgrade when I’ll have any VST3.
