I don’t see what is so confusing about that? It says in plain English that you need to hold down Left Shift while you enter the notes.
You should really try to spend more time with the manual. It’s not as daunting as you might think, and there’s a lot of useful information to be discovered in there. Even I still read it from time to time and discover new things that I didn’t know, and I’ve been using Renoise since 2003.
If you are writing a tutorial that involves using Renoise, then don’t you think you should at least be more familiar with some of the basic functionality first?
I read his first post fast because I thought that Conner already solved his problem, then dblue’s reply make me understand what is really going on.
smasha, I’m pretty sure that Renoise team would be more than happy to provide a tutorial for the magazine, if you can give some information about what you exactly need (size of text, number of images, user level, and so on)
“If you want to quickly insert chords without live recording, you can do this by holding down “Left Shift” while entering the notes. This will automatically create columns to the right and enter the new notes there.”
Personally, I can’t think of a more simple way of telling this
Chaps, if he’s doing the “CM magazine tutorial”, that means he’s following Dave Newman’s Renoise tutorials which were published in the magazine up until a few months ago when the tracker tutorials switched to Psycle and SunVox. He’s not actually writing his own tutorial.
