New Tool (3.2): The Deliverer

The Deliverer

Effortless Deliverables

The Deliverer is a batch rendering and archival tool for collecting mixdowns, stems, Renoise instruments, and raw samples, with customizable destination folders, export formats, and flexible naming for stems and mixdowns.

Other render tools didn’t fit my workflow, so I created The Deliverer to fill those voids. It can batch render any combination of Master mixdown, individual track stems, and grouped track stems (submixes), with customizable filenames and destination folders for each.

I built it to just work, with reasonable defaults for most use cases. It doesn’t render selections, it doesn’t export patterns separately, it just renders the song and all its stems—it’s my replacement for Renoise’s default Render To Disk dialog.

It’s also capable of exporting all XRNI instruments, and even raw samples, with each output sample filename encoded with information to make rebuilding an instrument easier (in a far future, dystopian post-Renoise world).

I also added preset management to be able to recall per-client, per-use case, or per-project settings easily.

v0.9:

  • Fixed Windows path issues
  • Windows tested

v0.8:

  • Render mixdown with custom settings
  • Render stems with basic naming convention
  • Specify custom folder for stem output (default: “Stems/”)
  • Specify custom folder for exported instruments (default: “XRNI/”)
  • Specify custom folder for exported raw samples (default: “Samples/”)
  • Export sliced samples separately
  • Setting: Flac or Wav for exported samples
  • Add support for custom naming scheme
  • Add preset management
  • Make sure selected base paths exist, create if not
  • Automatically create a containing folder based on song name
  • Fixed: If song is unsaved (new song), automagic file naming breaks
  • Decouple factory presets from user presets for saving/loading separate XML files, to avoid missing out when updates to factory settings are pushed

Known Issues

  • Does not detect/delete empty/silent audio files
  • Untested on Linux (confidence: 100%)

I haven’t tried it yet, but this is a very thoughtful addition to Renoise’s Tools. Thank you!

Edit: Just downloaded it, tried it out, works great :smiley:

sounds really useful, so i immediately tried.
unfortunately, it won’t export anything here and always terminates with an error:
image

song was saved right before (even though i dont understand why that would be important anyway).
windows 10 user here.

Looks like the exclamation marks in your folder name might be causing the issue. Can you try on a folder without them?

Edit: Never mind, I need to push a fix for windows users.

tried different foldername combinations to no avail.

i guess so :wink:

Thank you, great tool indeed it save lot of time!

Excellent, glad it worked!

btw: it would be nice if i could tell the tool to not create a new subfolder for each raw sample exported.

it also seems to return the same error message as posted above when i try export samples from a tune which cointains no samples.

Thanks for letting me know. I’ll have a look at it.

An excellent addition to this tool would be batch song loading similar to:
https://www.renoise.com/tools/batch-render

I was actually working on a tool last week to batch load songs and export all instrument samples as .WAV,
merging the above tool, and:
https://www.renoise.com/tools/exportallsamples

Being able to easily batch a folder of songs into stems and samples at will would be rad.

Thanks!
