this is derailing a little. I don’t exactly love it. The golden rule should be applied to everybody, especially to a forum newcomer…

But yes: Read The Fabulous Manual. It is very good.

as a bonus, memorize those shortcuts in the pattern editor for maximum pleasure:

"Alt+Q, Alt+A, Alt+Z, Alt+T "

“Alt/Alt-Ctrl//Ctrl/Shift+F1/F2/F8/F9/F11/F12”

they are very good too.

Hey chaps not make fun out of someone having faith in something that helped out of the dirt. Its just…a thread with not two or three but 50 questions will be a bit…unwieldy, and people will lose overview… RTFM, use the forum search, then ask the questions in the beginner section with one topic per thread and title that represents the question well. Only few people are insane enough to read through this thread to look for questions already answered.

  1. I think there was a tool offering a scripted shorcut to keybind, that would toggle all DSP in a track on/off at once. Ask in a single (not fifty!) question thread, maybe someone can point you to it.

  2. Put the reverb 0% dry 100% wet onto a send channel. Then you can pre/post filter, delay or process the reverb tail, or even stack reverbs. Using sends also enables you to send multiple tracks into the same reverb, and fine tune the dry/wet levels individually.

  3. In the upper right corner of the multitap delay there is a button with a triangle pointing right. Click it, to reveal additional options for the currently selected tap. There you can choose linesynced operation, fractions can be dialed in with the delay sliders that will now switch from ms to percent offset.

  4. Cannot be done yet

  5. as said, hydras can make you control/automate 9 other devices in sync with a single slider (also additional hydras), and those devices can be in different tracks. A doofer might be an option to control multiple fx in the same track.

  6. Yes but with limitations, only vst 2.4 modules, no sidechaining (no multi in, no multi out other than for vsti)

  7. I think renoise can load .xm (“fast tracker 2”) modules, you might have luck with a seperate convertor program that can convert your modules to .xm - every conversion might cause some glitches on the final song though, but you should be able to extract note data and the samples via this path.

  8. To the left of the sample waveform view in the sampler should be a sample options panel, it should feature transpose and finetune buttons. Finetune works like a semitone has 127 cents, not 100, be aware of this. The spectrum analyser might be useful, and musically trained hearing, I sometimes calculate tunings by reading the width of a wavecycle in the sample editor.

  9. reverse the sample in the sample editor, or use the reverse pattern effects command, or use reverse or ping pong loop, whatever suits the sound your are aiming for best.

40+41 use vst, be aware that vst effects in renoise are only supported with stereo in, so vocoder needs to be one that works with modulator/carrier left/right split action.

45 we are all nerds, we love our trailing zeros and prefixes and stuff

48 load a white noise sample or generator vst, or there is also some renoise tool that can generate noise samples I think.

I am offended by your avatar .

I dislike religious symbols , especially in a public forum .

OK I’m sorry you’re offended. I also am offended by a great many public things - but what can you do? But please, let’s have a little perspective here. The entire history of the United Kingdom, and most European countries is based on that symbol - the Cross has been upheld for millennia as a symbol of our national faith. It’s what everyone has always believed in. Everything that is good about modern society is thanks to that symbol. To me, that symbol represents my friend and Saviour Jesus, the man I owe everything to, who changed my entire life. He is everything to me. I don’t really see what is offensive about a symbol representing the kindest, nicest man who ever lived? So I’m sorry you’re offended, but you may not realise how much good that symbol can do for hopeless people and how much it can change their lives.

Check this out, it’s pretty cool, 232 pages of answers.

LOL, thanks! I didn’t know there was a full downloadable manual, very helpful. Cheers :slight_smile:

Hi,

Thanks so much Raul, really helpful! :slight_smile:

I must be doing it wrong, because I’m reading the answers first and then looking up the questions :smashed:

Never mind .

Fuck jezus , and fuck religion .

The thread was getting massively derailed, so I did some clean-up.

A new Renoise user came here seeking advice from the community, not to have a bunch of jerks ridicule his belief system.

So please keep your replies on-topic, guys, or simply go elsewhere if you have nothing useful or constructive to say.

Cheers.

  1. My keyboard sometimes randomly stops working (suddenly no notes will play any more), so I have to unplug and replug and it works again? This seems to happen when I’m playing more notes at once. Not sure if it’s a problem with my keyboard, or a Renoise bug, or my PC?

Keyboards aren’t made for pressing multiple keys at once. Could be a cheap keyboard controller that will hang or deadlock or something. Maybe buy a miniature midi keyboard, e.g. korg microkey 37. Or is the keyboard still working, like moving the cursor, but sound stops?

  1. How do you generate white noise?

Check this tool:https://forum.renoise.com/t/new-tool-3-0-selection-shaper/41240 See the “W ****” button. It generates a raw white noise for you in a sample slot, so then you have to loop it and add further things like volume ADSR, filter ADSR and so on in the instrument section.

  1. Important: How do you change the playback transpose? (Not the actual notes, just how it sounds.)

For most function you can imagine Renoise provides you with keyboard shortcuts - though not all are bind to a key by default. Check Preferences->“Keys” Button/Tab. There you can search, in this perticular case “octave”, and the view then filters for all available functionality containing “octave” (“transpose” would be like you mentioned an altering action, but you want to set the octave). I set “octave up” and “down” onto the numpad keys * and / (maybe default).

  1. Do VSTs work with Renoise?

Yes, and keep in mind that there also is a “sandbox” for VSTs, which aims to prevent hard crashes, if a VST becomes unstable. Note that sandbox is kind of broken in macOS 10.12 or higher. If you use hardware DSP like UAD, then disable it. If you want the maximum performance, disable it. I disabled it, Renoise still is (was) stable.

  1. How to show the EQ full-screen? To me, EQ is one of the most essential parts of producing music and I want as much control as possible - so the small box is really not helpful in my opinion.

Currently not possible, a pity. But you will get used to that tiny view. One pixel already is a big step. But you can at least zoom in in Y-axis, see bottom right corner. Also you can hold down shift very precise movement.

  1. Is there any quick and easy way to toggle on/off all effects for a track?

No. Instead create a new track pressing alt-t, and play there. shit-alt-t for delete the track again.

  1. I’ve been using trackers most of my life - I have a bunch of old Protracker files (.pt3) and various types of Amiga files (the type found at www.exotica.org.uk) - is there any way to get these into Renoise?

Not sure if PT3 is a custom format, or just a renamed .MOD? Renoise can load Protracker .MOD files properly. So search for a converter PT3->MOD (protracker). Old soundtracker .MOD have different pitches than Protracker .MOD, there also was a converter for that. I think it was Milkytracker, save to XM. See here

Hi,a couple more thoughts…

50.-Some USB keyboards (most membrane) do not respond to multiple keys pressed at the same time. However, some mechanical keyboards (and a few of membrane) are capable of reproducing a multitude of keys at a time by design (for example, mechanical keyboards for gamers, with a very fast response time). These USB keyboards are ideal for Renose.If you need to reconnect your USB keyboard, it is very likely that it is broken. A keyboard should always respond, regardless of how you press the keys.If you use a USB hub or extension, try to connect the USB keyboard directly to the motherboard, to see if it responds. Try changing the USB port …

11.-If you mean the effects of the devices in the chains of each track, it is possible to switch off and on all the devices using a tool. There are already some that integrate it. The track can receive parameters and automation effects. This is something else. But it is possible to turn off all the devices by means of a tool. GT16-Colors toolintegrates it, although it is an alpha; in its module 6 (ALL ON / BYPASS).I intend to include this function also in my VPDpro tool (not yet shared).

You can also use a doofer as a container for all other effects devices, although not the most practical.

With an avatar like his ,he was asking for it …

Religious and sexual preferences is something you keep for yourself , no need to rub that into our faces .

I am highly sensitive and have a deep aversion for religion ad dogmatic belief systems.

To everyone, thank you all once again! These answers are so helpful! :slight_smile: I forgot to thank OopsIFly before, so thank you so much! Thanks also to “Guruh”.

Again, I know that 50 questions was ridiculous. But I wasn’t expecting everyone to answer them all, just to chip in if they saw something they felt they could answer. I also want to point out that different people learn differently. Some people like to read an entire manual before they begin using something. But many people learn much better through conversation. We like to talk to people, ask, and find out things that way. (It also makes us feel more like part of a community rather than the “bedroom loners” that we actually are.) LOL

That’s really thoughtful of you, thanks! :slight_smile:
