Redux Sampler Questions

This is my first time here, and first time using any Renoise products, so I am about to install Redux Sampler demo to try it out, as I’ve only just discovered this from some Youtube tutorials that I fell upon!

It looks very good…

As a Serato Sample user, how does it compare with the timestretching and key shifting?

Can you record audio directly and destructively like an audio editor within Redux? or does it have to be imported and cut elsewhere?

Also does Redux work on MacOS 10.13.6?

Are there any Serato Sample users here, that also use Redux, as i’d like to see the differences between the two

Thank you for any help

There is a Slice marker in the sampler to create individual slices (to notes) of a sample.
You can also Render slices destructively to new samples, or use many samples instead.
The Drum Kit keyzone setting will set each note to one slice.
There are pitch and timestretching options for things up to 512 beats;
The slices can be autodetected, sometimes manual precise setting of markers is needed.

also, try out the demo before you continue to purchase.

Renoise and Redux both have a demo version
