New Tool (3.1): Track Color Device

I forgot about this one until today. It’s mainly a tool for the artistic performers or for having some fun:) Even potentially useful for everyday tracking, in some cases.

I remade it from an old version that was a lot more complex (made before learning OO). I hope there are no serious bugs in it. Feel free to report!

  1. Install tool

  2. Insert doofer (attached here)

  3. Automate!

Add a bit of random LFO via inertia device and a meta mixer to make the neon lights glow :slight_smile:


7250 joule.no0b.TrackColorDevice.xrnx

Device (doofer):

7249 Track Color Device.xrdp

An old showcase:

PS. Don’t mess inside the doofer, and don’t try to contain the device within a doofer. Unfortunately the LUA API can’t readily access devices within a doofer. If it was possible, it would have been easy to share awesome track color presets…

^^ ^^ :slight_smile:


Yes. Very usefull, again, you Did it !. :wink:

A small bug from code typo fixed.

Feel free to share any videos of experiments :slight_smile:

Bug while I add a new track:

'/Users/Ju/Library/Preferences/Renoise/V3.1.0/Scripts/Tools/joule.no0b.TrackColorDevice.xrnx/main.lua' failed in one of its notifiers.
The notifier will be disabled to prevent further errors.

Please contact the author (joule) for assistance...

main.lua:60: variable 'setup_track_notifier' is not declared

I love this!

My pitiful GPU hates it!

Too bad! It’s running smooth on all of my computers, but I guess it ‘depends’!
