Yeah … check out Tracktion 5 - it has a nice take on freezing, allowing you to apply the freeze at any point in the chain.
With a little planning this kind of thing could be brought to Renoise, it’s quite simple in principle but really very powerful in use.
In fact, Tracktion 5 has some very interesting features (mainly in the freezing department). Like consolidation of an entire song structure down to a stem (like a global freeze) and then, at any point, you can jump back to the source structure and make edits before returning to the modified consolidated file.
It’s really worth having a look at the demo videos - I would love to see this kind of basic, sharp tool added to the Renoise set. You know, it’s just rendering and file operations … but done for you.
In essence, it would be like the ‘render plugin to new instrument’ feature, except it would operate on a sample. Render sample to new sample (with the option of having that done in-place effectively rendering any DSP to the sample destructively).
This would be very useful indeed. Things like the removal of low-end from samples where it’s not absolutely essential… just routine clean-ups that don’t really warrant having DSP in-line all the time (wasteful), not to mention more creative processes.
Yes - I know that I personally avoid rendering stuff. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a valid request.
But, perhaps backtracking a bit from the full-blown track freeze function (for which a quite brilliant tool has been written, btw.), we could/should have the sampler’s “apply FX” use the instr. FX instead of track FX.
See these topics, which basically ask for the same thing:
Aye, I was a big fan of the Freeze Track tool but it doesnt work in v3.
My workaround for now is to add the DSP I need, then put a note in on the pattern, ‘render selection to sample’ and finally delete the previous instrument and DSP. Slightly grubby, but works
If I were any shakes with scripting I’d make a tool.
Eventually yes, but i did not had the idea it was that quiet yet regarding the bug reports…
Anyway, i was just giving my previous answer based on this reply in my mind: http://forum.renoise…ndpost&p=305034
But then again, it is called feature finetuning which has indeed been done the past few updates…
