So, the last tracker I used was Protracker 3.11 on the Amiga wondermachine (ok, a bit of Madtracker back in 2004., but it sucked), I recently purchased Renoise and in couple of hours did my first song, but honestly, I’m superlost. It’s been 20 years since my last serious tracking and I’m missing some of the things I knew how to do in Protracker.
For instance, the mute instruction. Not the complete mute, but how you’d mute a guitar string. Can’t find that option anywhere in the documentation.
The thing that bothers me atm is that I can’t find the “spread notes” option. I started the song in a very low tempo, and now I’m stuck with 16th’s and i need to double that amount so I thought I’d just double the tempo and spread the notes across the pattern. Is there a possibility for that or maybe Renoise has a more elegant option?
A HUGE bug I just came across. Tried to export the files to separate channels so I can mix the track a bit in Cubase and maybe add a live bass since it lacks in that department and half the channels bounced WRONG. For instance, I have a channel with bells on delay, monotone. What bounced was a 2 tone polyphony that abruptly cuts…and that’s it. Not just that I didn’t get the effect out, but it was 2 tones all of a sudden…What’s going on? Literally none of the sounds with ANY instructions in the pattern or effects exported right. This is insane, to be honest.
In any case, thanks for the answers.
p.s. This is the tune I did to test out Renoise
