Hey everyone it’s been a while!!
I was getting back into Renoise these past few days/weeks, and i would like to make a feature request, on behalf of everyone who was used to ST3 and Impulse Tracker back in the day —
a way to temporarily view/edit patterns without adding them to the orderlist. This would be most welcome for us ST3/IT users!!! In these trackers, keypad + and - were used to roam through patterns (regardless of orderlist) and ctrl+keypad + and - were used to follow the orderlist.
For example, if i have an orderlist of 10,15,20,25,30 (for some odd reason) and i am on pattern 00:
ctrl+keypad +/- goes to the first/last pattern in the orderlist, because the currently selected pattern is not on the orderlist / EDIT / Correction: both will go to the first pattern in orderlist, in this case 10. sorry (:
keypad + just goes up to pattern 1, regardless if it is on the orderlist or not, and keypad - is ignored because i’m on the first possible pattern (zero)
If i have the same orderlist, but i am on pattern 20:
ctrl+keypad + goes to pattern 25, and ctrl+keypad goes to pattern 15.
Keypad + goes to pattern 21 and keypad - goes to pattern 19.
It would be really nice to have a way to edit/view patterns that are NOT in the orderlist in Renoise, without making temporary entries in the orderlist. Use case example: i often have a few “central” patterns that are not in the orderlist themselves, but a bunch of patterns have alias tracks to these pattern(s) - and i can then use envelopes to fade in/out different tracks, or set filter values or whatever… making a 20 second pattern the bulk of 2 minutes of my song without too much pattern data repetition, and without sounding repetitive either… hope it makes sense the way i explained it =)
Cheers to everyone on this message board it’s been a while and i miss you guys! also it was fun debating evolution/creation stuff a while ago!!
