So, after months of hoping for better performance on my Mac, thanks to Neuro… No Neuro I found out what caused my issue:
Having set my Mac display to the “iMac” color profile in the OS settings, I have a terrible refresh rate of Renoise’s UI. To the point, where I deem it unusable. Approximately 20 fps.
Solution: Setting the display color profile to sRGB IEC61966-2.1
Thing is, if Renoise can be “fixed” to work well with any color profile, I could keep using the one I work with for editing photos, without having to switch every time.
Renoise version 3.3.1
System: Intel based iMac 2017, 27" model
MacOS 11.1 Big Sur
If you experience a “laggy” UI / low framerate for all the meters and analyzers in renoise, try setting all your screens to the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 color profile.
You can find this under System Preferences - Displays - Color.
Big thanks to Neuro… No Neuro for making me aware of that!
I wonder if there’s a ‘quick switch’ sort of button for the toolbar in Mac OS X, something to go straight to the monitor/preference options. Coulda sworn there was something that’d do that. I found a ton of things that’d allow the end-user to switch monitor resolutions and I believe presets when I searched “resolution changer”. It’s still a mouse-click or two, but faster than loading up the System Preferences every time.
To the admin: The “solution” is just a workaround, I created this topic to make the dev/s aware of an existing problem between Renoise and the color management of MacOS.
Would be nice, if Renoise worked well with any color profile.
