Hey everyone! My name is Nic, but I go by nekk in the irc, and these forums. I just got renoise yesterday as an early Christmas present, because I have wanted it for a very long time. I was previously using milkytracker (nice for a free program!), but I am amazed at how much depth renoise adds to tracking! I am having a great time learning, and just wanted to stop by to say hey
Also, for all stalkers:
Location: Florida, USA
Favorite Color: Blue
Genres: I have no idea 0_0
By the way, I wanted to get my first renoise project out of the way (since I knew it would suck!) so I made a little loop last night. Not very interesting, but pretty fun to make
There’s a computer here all right, but with no sound.
That means I don’t get to listen to your loop until tomorrow, when I’m back at home.
In the meantime, welcome to the Renoise forums, and congratulations on not having to pay for a license.
Oh, and another thing, the “DO NOT TROLL” rule is even bigger here, because us well-behaved Renoisers have high standards. You won’t get away with much here; I learned that the hard way. I’m not saying you’re trolling, I’m just saying don’t… or you’ll be sorry.
EDIT 1: Completely unrelated, but are you a Metroid fan? If so, you are a friend of mine .
EDIT 2: Last time (I hope), why do I need to know your favorite color?
Thank you! It is a bit too late to change the loop to 13 seconds, but thanks for letting me know you liked it
I will try my best to learn it, I am having a great time learning the basics, experimenting, and dissecting peoples songs
Random noob question: I am currently stuck with just the default samples, and a few I managed to find scattered around the internet… What should I do to find more samples, on a teenagers budget of 0.00?
don’t know if they are mentioned in kazakore’s link, but you might want to check out HISSANDAROAR. for each pack, at the bottom, is ‘free stuff’. just enter your email address and you get a download link.
[center]15!!! 15 and you use Linux and Renoise? MAN YOUR ON YOUR WAY!!! Keep at it and WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY!!! Please feel free to come on in to the IRC on EsperNET and idle away and partake in the convo’s !
try to think it over sometime. come up with a logical system of organizing your samples. for me, i categorize them: beats, instruments, voice, fx, micro. then for each category there are subcategories. so beats has breaks, downloads, hits and loops. instruments has all sorts of different instruments (piano, strings, bass, electronic, etc), voice has short, spoken, sung, interview, etc.
keep in mind: this is my personal system. i make use of the folder presets in the Renoise sample browser to get fast access to most of my stuff. however, when ripping/saving new samples, i for example have a loop with vocals and beats, i have to switch back and forth between folders in Audacity (which i use for my ripping and cutting) for each sample, which can be a drag. so if you come up with a better system for organization, please share it with the community, as i believe you are not alone in your samples being a disorganized mess.
that said, also remember that i am pretty obsessed with organization. for example, all of my MP3s are organized in a similar way (but with genres and subgenres and sub-subgenres and so on), and each has the album art in the folder and the filenames fixed to be ‘artist - album - 01 - title.mp3’
with 4000+ songs, you can imagine the time that has gone into this, and it is definitely not something for everyone. however, it keeps things easy to find and strangely sooths my mind
good luck! if you have any questions feel free to ask them!
