Does renoise have instrument included ? (for example, garageband has many piano, violin, guitar, etc…).
Does renoise come with lot of sample, loop, and other?
The main application (both demo and full version) comes with a small collection of basic starter instruments and samples. A few synths, a few basses, a nice amount of single shot percussion aimed at electronic music, a few breakbeats, etc. We do not have any big multi-gigabyte libraries to offer you.
Does renoise has included special effect, plugin, equalizer, or whatever else included normally in ableton, fl studio and garage band?
Renoise does not come with any third party plugins. We only include our native devices, which includes a variety of DSP effects to process the sound, and “meta” devices to automate and control things in various ways. There’s definitely more than enough included to handle most common production tasks, but if you need more specialised effects then you’ll need to look at other VST plugins.
Does renoise has a piano roll?
does fl studio has (…)
Better go check the Image-Line website to answer any FL Studio questions.
i can’t find any included synthesizer.
We don’t have an included synthesizer, but our Sampler is quite capable of taking some looped waveforms and turning them into something interesting.
If you want more advanced synths, better look at the thousands of available VST plugins out there. The KvR plugin database is a good place to start.
But what is backstage? Is there any instrument in backstage(can’t seem to find any real info on what backstage is really)?
Backstage is a private area of our website for licensed users only. After buying a license for Renoise or Redux, you’ll get a login to the Backstage area where you can download the software (and future updates), plus some other goodies that are exclusive to licensed users.
We do have a small selection of bonus content in the Backstage area. This includes some instrument packs for Redux (which will now work in Renoise 3.1) which you can read about here, and also a few packs for Renoise such as the Puremagnetik pack which was first included with an older Renoise update that you can read about here.
In general, they are all relatively modest in size, so you should not expect any huge orchestral sound libraries or anything like that. It’s just a few extra sounds that you may find interesting.
People that buy renoise get special redux pricing?
If you already own Renoise, then you can log into Backstage and use a special link there which grants a 30% discount on Redux.
Vice versa if you already own Redux, and you want to buy Renoise for 30% discount.
Ableton like to brag about how many GB of included content they got (…)
Ableton is also a multi-million dollar company that employs hundreds of people, with entire departments dedicated to content production, licensing sounds from other producers, etc.
Renoise is a sliiiightly smaller operation (ie. super tiny!) with far less resources to spend on that type of thing.
In reality, you’ll probably never use 95% of the content included with most big DAWs anyway, and it’s simply wasting space on your hard disk, so I personally don’t even consider such stuff to be very useful.
