I spent the weekend writing my first lua script, and it became a renoise tool
This tool adds some assignable keyboard shortcuts under Global/Tools. These shortcuts are effecting only the currently selected note or effects column in a track.
The shortcuts are:
Repeat: The block of lines above the cursor is repeated until pattern end, starting from the currently selected line. For example you type in some notes or effects in line 1-7, place the cursor in line 8, and have the first two beats repeated. Notes and effects are repeated independently.
Increase/Decrease Instrument: Sets the instrument for a note column. Do it repeatedly, and you can simply browse through all available instruments for your song
Increase/Decrease Shuffle: Increases or decreases the delay column value of every 2nd and 4th line.
Rotate up/down: Rotates the column content up or down. Notes and effects are rotated independently.
I wrote these to speed up editing of basslines or drum tracks. As a Renoise noob I’m pretty sure I have reinvented some wheels, but it was great practice.
Hope you find it as useful as I do. Have fun!
