During the last lock down, I decided to try music and I bought Renoise. I could have stick with the demo version but, I decided to spend money so I would really use the software. At first I wish I bought FLStudio because most of the tutorials you can watch on Youtube is using it. But I’ve never encounter something I couldn’t do in Renoise. Renoise is so under rated, and I will have to use it for years before I feel limited. Back in March, I knew nothing about music, didn’t knew the ABCDEFG, didn’t knew what a chord was, what a beat looked liked, don’t even mention mixing or what VST stands for. But I have always listen to music, several hours a day, electronic music, and liked it. And I knew what a tracker was, and kind of liked demo songs (my family had an Amiga when I was a kid).
Since I started composing songs in Renoise, my listening is different, I’m not just the head banger I used to be. I’m slowly learning to decode this new language. Since March I have read 2 books about music theory, watched countless videos on music, synthesizers and composition on Youtube, spent days in the tracker trying out what I learnt, and having great pleasure composing my OWN songs (for what they are). I used to be a man without a hobby, now I have one
Today I would like to share my last xrns file. It’s not a whole song, it’s about 30 seconds only. I could spend many weeks on that, but I have to experiment new things. It’s inpired from those old songs made on the first trackers. It’s quite minimalist (xrns is about 800k only), it has a synth that I sampled from the the VST called Dexed, a kick, a snare, a hat. I enjoyed making those 30s, and I like to listen to it. I do hope it won’t make your hears bleeding. Tell me what you think !
