first of all, sorry again for being too rude; as you probably have seen, this forum is fairly opened to any discussion and comparison between any software, and MT2 is probably the one who has the best apreciations among ReNoise users… just look at what most of them think about Skale
I actually did not change my mind over time: if ReNoise would have come out before the time I sent you that mails, I would have never harassed you with them: I don’t really want a FT2 clone, but since MT2 plays XM in a good way, and plans to be even better, I gladly offered my support for this purpose, as I also did with XmPlay. Ian Luck (XmPlay’s author) carefully followed my suggestions, and made what XmPlay is. Maybe I could be wrong, but you simply ignored most of my suggestions (I can send you that emails again if you really want ).
But I’m really not interested in 100% XM compatibility; I prefer go further and make new music. And this is true for the past too.
In the past, I also launched the idea of a common ReNoise-Skale-MT2 plugin API, but it looked like RNS people were the only enthusiasts about that idea.
I was not speaking as a ReNoise team member: I was speaking as a MT2 registered user, which I think I still am.
Should I have some special care for my MT2 user opinions because I am part of ReNoise team?
If so, pardon me for not putting that special care on the previous message.
About IRC client and usability: yes, of course it is a matter of tastes, that’s clear. We focus support mostly on forum, though we still provide flash-help on IRC. Forum, in our vision, is better because gives ability to search the present knowledge, and that’s why we also trust a lot in ReNoise Wiki page, on which Vvoois is putting lots of wise effort.
I hope you will find this post less sarcastic and with more points of constructive exchange.
