there should be a panningslider in the ‘sample properties’, together with the ‘amplify’ and ‘finetuning’ sliders.
useful if using several samples in one track.
possibility to record ‘automation’ directly into one track’s effectcolumn!
by that i mean to first draw the movements in the ‘automation’-window, and then, for example press a button to make renoise convert these movements into the active track’s effectcolumn in the active pattern.
would be very useful with a ‘make-dir’ and ‘rename’-button in the ‘disk-op’.
should be a keyboard shortcut/assignment-possibility for track-‘mute/solo/unmuteall’. doubleclicking isn’t that accurate.
should also be a ‘convert to mono’ button in the sampleeditor,
so you won’t have to use an external wave-editor.
possibility to manually type in/edit fadervalues for all sliders in renoise,
just like you made it possible with the parameters for vst-plugins.
isn’t ‘octave 3’ a more approriate default setting when starting a new song, rather than ‘octave 4’? i think the letter ‘Q’ is the most natural keyboard-letter for the real c-note/original sample-note.
allow more than 19 characters for samples in the instrumentbank.
it seems like there’s room for about 25-30 char., depending on caps/numbers. when i load samples with more than 19 char., the last letters dissapear. unhandy if these letters or numbers are important for the filename’s recognition. for example; “chunky deephouse bass 012”
the newly implemented ‘lfo-device’:
i’ve been having problems finding this useful, because when you turn it on,
it starts moving even if the song or pattern isn’t playing! this means that it starts (most likely) at a different value each time you play the song or pattern… and this is hopeless if you want to create for example a rhythmical volume-pump-effect. could something be done here?
a notepad within the ‘songproperties’ would be nice. this notepad should also have unlimited rows, so you can work on lyrics, ascii-art and other kinds of notes.
or; maybe a classic, optional popup window that introduces a song when
loading it, where you can store song information such as artist, title, year, and so on. maybe even a space for graphics, for example 400x400 pixels, where you can place a jpeg-coverdesign file…?
but if none of these songprop-ideas are good, i suggest you allow more characters in the ‘title’ and ‘produced by’ fields within the already existing ‘songproperties’, they’re way too short if you want to include remix/version/featuring/etc.-names with your song.
and what about making the textfield where you choose track dsp’s & vst-plugins wider? there aren’t much room for long plugin-names there.
- that’s all for now!
