There you will also find new Quickstart PDFs and a Beginners Video Tutorial, updated for Renoise 2.5. User manual PDFs for printing an offline reading will be available with the Renoise 2.5 final release.
The manual is updated while you are reading it (proof read, slightly restructured and finetuned) but all main content already is there.
If you have any questions, ideas on how to make this better, whats missing, whatever else related, let us know here please.
Couldn’t find a link on the wiki to report typos and stuff so I hope it’s ok if I do it here.
The second sentence on the tutorials homepage needs a want instead of a what:
“Like an encyclopedia, this manual describes every nitbit in Renoise. For beginners or those who what to guide themselves through Renoise”
I also wonder if the ‘nitbit’ in the first sentence shouldn’t be a ‘tidbit’.
English isn’t my first language so I may be wrong, but as none of my dictionaries seem to know what a nitbit is, I thought I’d mention it too.
Den - you’re half right. ‘Tidbit’ is a recent and bizarre Americanisation of ‘titbit’ which is presumably designed to protect children from the perverse and explicit word ‘tit’ in everyday life. Douglas Harper’s Online Etymology Dictionary makes some fatuous and apocryphal assertions as to its origin, but this is just more of the ethnic cleansing of the English language that we’ve become used to.
Changed this to:
“”"… this manual describes every little detail in Renoise …"""
Thanks for the help guys. The manual pages are not yet completely proofread - we are not yet done with this. Also I won’t do the proofreading, so don’t worry
We’re right now more interested in content checks and fixes for misleading, wrong information and so on. If you can find such fishy content or have ideas on how to describe things better, then it would be great if you could let us know about this here.
why is the manual under “tutorials.renoise” tho? :>
much appreciated btw. will motivate me to leaf through the manual once more and check out those parts that i skipped the first time i read it when i was just starting out to learn renoise. and the new features ofc.
