having used renoise for about a year, i realised that i had absolutely no idea what 80% of the sliders on the various DSP effects did. what would’ve been great is either a brief description in the status bar, or if some effects are too hard to describe, a little [?] icon near the [<] [>] [x] buttons, which links to the relevant section of the help file, which should be viewable within renoise (ft2 did this).
also, the help file could be laid out more intuitively - i didn’t realise there was a run-down of every single DSP effect/slider.
this same ‘technology’, if it isn’t already there, could be used to include a song message editor. a good one. with ability to import txt files.
i think this would make the program a LOT less intimidating for newbies.
