In the past we usually have done public betas, where every registered Renoise user could download the betas at the backstage. This time we’d like to do things a bit differently, and only want to invite a bunch of people to help us testing the beta versions before it’s going public. This hopefully eases things on our side by concentrating on fewer people. Also, the 3.3 mostly is about just one feature: VST3 so we’re not expecting many issues that need to be discussed apart from plugin compatibility issues.
We also won’t have time to add new features during the beta and will try to release Renoise 3.3 stable this year - if possible.
If you want to help testing the Renoise 3.3 betas, before they are going public please send me a private message with the following info:
- your backstage email (your login), so we can enable the beta builds at the Renoise backstage for you. Please note: don’t send us your passwords - we just need the login
- the operating system that you’re going to use mostly (Windows, OSX, Linux), so we can make sure that all platforms get tested somewhat evenly
I think we’ll only need around 30 (33?) people to test the betas, so please understand that we can’t accept all requests.
Please only request access to the betas, if you are planning to do some actual testing
This release basically only is about VST3 support, so there’s really not much more to see.
Thanks a lot for your help!
