Hi guys, relatively new Renoise user, planning to purchase soon.
First, let me say why I LOVE the Plugin Grabber - because I absolutely hate VSTs - the idea of being dependent on all these programs installed via Windows, each one with a different interface. I just find it all so messy and confusing. I like to keep things simple and just want all my instruments to be standard files in my own directories, that I have direct access to.
So that’s why I love the idea of the Plugin Grabber. Now I just have a few questions about it…
First, is this feature unique to Renoise? I honestly don’t think I could use any DAW that didn’t have it!
Secondly (and this is really my main question), for sample-based plugins, is the Grabber able to automatically detect the note/velocity range/steps, as well as loop points - just by analysing the samples? I suspect it can’t, but to me this seems like it would be really useful to avoid unnecessary sampling, and bad looping.
Does the Plugin Grabber allow for round robin (variant) samples? I see nothing about that in the settings.
Finally, does anyone know of any software that can extract the samples directly from plugins, so there’s no re-sampling/loss of quality involved?
