well in order to understand it, you have to understand what phrases are within renoise… And to understand sampler aspect - you have to dive deep into renoise’s sampler - phrases/keyzones/modulation/waveform/effects in order to understand what redux is.

Basically redux is one instance of renoise’s sampler for vst format… (just a slice/part of renoise to use in other daws…) in order to understand, you have to understand renoise first i guess.
i really do not use it, since the ‘tracker’ workflow is lost when working with other DAWs (be it clip-launching or linear-recording style like pro tools)… I use renoise exclusively, since i love tracker realm. I hope that this helps.
You can also get a clear picture from introduction videos about both of redux and renoise (this doesn’t count then)
if you do not intent to use other daws, renoise is enough. But if you do (for whatever reason), you could evaluate redux as well.
Also a point that you cannot load redux inside renoise,
- you already have all in renoise (and much more) than redux has - so it makes no sense to do it
- this is not possible (as stated from manual/devs also)
