NNA: Note Fade?

I just started using Renoise, so bear with me here.

I am a veteran Scream Tracker and Impulse Tracker user of many years and was wondering if there is a way of implementing a Note Fade new note action in Renoise.

Basically, everytime an instrument is triggered, I want the note that was previously playing to fade out in a controlled amount of time. IT had a NNA specifically for this, but Renoise doesn’t seem to have it.

For those of you who have worked with Renoise for a while, how do you get around this? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

All right, I guess you can get this effect by using a volume envelope on your instrument, adding an envelope loop, and setting a fadeout value (as suggested in the manual).

However, this is such a common task, I don’t see why the Note Fade NNA isn’t included.

For those of you who haven’t tried this, I recommend using this approach for natural-sounding instruments like pianos and strings.

note off + volume envelope does what you want … use a sustain on the envelope.
