First of all, I wanted to say hello! I just recently started to learn renoise and have a quick question. Are there any reliable archives of “one-shot” samples and “single-note” instruments? I mean, i do not intend to use pre-made samples/sequences of notes, I always compose music from scratch, note by note. What i mean by “single note” is, are there any instruments that produce a single sound instead of a chord or a sequence of sounds (as in, for example, in some of the built-in instruments in renoise). I am mostly looking for:
good quality drum sets, both “real” and electronic
studio quality bass guitar sounds
Overdriven guitars (no chords!)
strings like violin, cello etc, but they must be “single note”
ensembles and choirs (again, preferably no chords, just single notes)
lead pads, mostly for “futuristic” music like those form Unreal Tournament game soundtrack
Also, some more pre-made effect chais would be helpful. Before Renoise i was using Guitar Pro 6 which was way easier to use, but also had very few sound options… sometimes in Renoise i feel a bit lost and I could use some help, maybye from othe people who make music similar to UT soundtrack?
Besides, my main concern about renoise is - is there any good (free) instrument for imitating overdriven guitar? The only upside which came with Guitar Pro’s limitations is… well, the fact that it’s designed to reproduce guitar sounds. I mean, the realistic sound engine from Guitar Pro is so good with guitars that you could easily confuse it’s artificial guitar sounds with a real-life one. Is there an instrument for Renoise which does that?
Looking forward to hearing from you guys!
