Recommend me a new DAW


(wellard) #194

I’m talking about a salvage operation, creating a free tracker scene like there used to be in the public domain days of the Amiga - I meant, making Renoise public domain and yes, anything else that’s in public domain e.g. DSP FX and taking it from there.

It’s obvious this ship is going down, let’s treasure its last few moments, while the band plays on. Let the fanatics make useless chiptunes, let EatMe make the same tune over and over, let people brag about buying a Machinedrum that they’ll never use.

Goodbye, and thank you for the music!

A question to the devs of Renoise:

Let’s say I want to contribute code to the core functionality of Renoise, how do I do that?

I mean, how do I join the circle of Renoise devs?

Should I send a CV or something or how does that work?

This is a serious, not a sarcastic question…

Best regards.

P.S.: my two cents to the topic:

I don’t think that the people behind Renoise have any obligation to continue developing it, by bying Renoise you don’t buy any future obligations, but an existing software “as is”.

But if the project is abandoned one day I would also appreciate that the code is open-sourced.It would be a nice gesture towards the community. Of course I hope that it’s not the case and everything you people write are rumours.

But again, it’s no one’s obligation to do so, all we can do is to ask nicely instead of bragging, complaining and claiming what we think are “our rights”. Because they are not.

I guess you could contact them here:

or direct to: taktik [at] renoise [dot] com

The other thread closed just when it started to get interesting. But well, I understand.

Yet, I simply have a question to Danoise (from his latest post in that topic).

Renoise is taktiks creation, of that there is no doubt. We’ve worked together for a few years now, and I can tell you that he has a very keen sense of what this software needs and doesn’t need.

This is interesting, and perhaps even groundbreaking.

Since the (vision) future of Renoise is clear already, why not allay the users by just mentioning:

  • What exactly this software need.
  • What exactly this software doesn’t need.

? :slight_smile:

I’m sure people would respect whatever the answers to these questions are.

I see this total nonsense posted in various forums, and of course it is just that, total nonsense, if you buy something and it says supported up to xxx version (A full version in the case of Renoise i believe) then there is a certain level of expectancy from the purchaser that the software will at least be updated to xxx

Obligation, yes, if advertising as “You are buying this version, you will get no updates, be happy” then they would probably get less sales, so the updates to xxx is being used as a sales tool.

Does that mean people can demand things, no, it just means that their is a level of expectancy and so their should be.

That’s also the reason why we are giving away those nearly fully functional Renoise demos: We’re first making people addicted, then charging the hell from them when people realize that they need ASIO, and finally torturing them here in the forum with the lack of news about Renoise updates.


Relax guys. There very likely will be some Renoise update some time. Let’s do something useful in the meantime?

Oh, or what was this thread about?


(magickz) #201

addiction to high frequency updates could harm your health. patience and gratitude will be beneficial for recovery :slight_smile:

Love how my previous post got totally ignored. But you’re right, this topic is about something else. I’ll just post in another topic with a more relevant title.

Edit: Done

Aside from being a b**** to compile due to the myriad of heavy dependencies (at least last time I tried it, about a year ago), I’d say it’s an innovative approach to solve a problem that unfortunately doesn’t exist - It took me straight to the uncanny valley with it’s vertical waveforms and pianorolls.

But at least one can’t say it’s not vertical enough :wink:

It seems to have compiled downloads now:

http://users.notam02.no/~kjetism/radium/download.php

There are some limitations imposed to get the user to Patron the project and get full binaries but it has recieved over 2000 commit~~ s~~ contributionssince last year. I’ll try it when I have a free moment which is probably never…


(Carbonthief) #210

Thanks for trying Radium!

Radium requires Jack. If you haven’t used Jack before,

Oh dear god. Nevermind.

(AVALANCHE) #212

The game seems to be pissing off taktik enough so he will give updates about the software development. It succeeded somehow !

I just wanted to show some support. I am making an album now and, despite its little flaws, Renoise stays my main DAW. I really hope you won’t give up its development.

I really didn’t find any DAW which satisfy my overall needs as much as Renoise.


(Bungle) #213

If it satisfies you so much, why do you care about it being developed, it is already x64, unless you are on OSX and Apple be their usual prolific idiot boxes, it is unlikely to stop working in our life time, go use it and make many more albums !
