i want to simply delete a unused or further not needed Trackcolumn. But in Column Contextmenu there is no delete, only a cut which only deletes the notes in it??!!! i checked the shortcut window and not found a Column delete too. As Workaround i delete all notes on Column and move it by mouse on last position of trackcolumns. then i remove it with the “-” button of Trackcolumn control. Is there really no other way to do this??
I will try to summarize how a note track works in Renoise.
A note track has 12 note sub-columns and 8 effect sub-columns. Technically none of these sub-columns can be “removed”. The only thing you can do is “ocular” (or show) these types of subcolumns (- button), and always in a decreasing way, so that subcolumns with a smaller index always take precedence. This allows you to keep information in sub-columns with a higher index and ignore them because they are “hidden”. You can also change the PLAY / OFF status of each note sub-column.
Group, Master, and Send tracks have the same philosophy, but only have 8 effect sub-columns.
The only thing you can delete is the data inserted inside each sub-column and you can do it very quickly from the advanced operations panel.
Something similar happens with the pattern. Each pattern always has 512 lines. You can hide or show a certain number of them.
It is possible to move a track column by holding down the left mouse button on the track column’s name (This defaults to “Note”) and then dragging to the desired position. Move All your unwanted track columns to the right and then delete them (using the left-hand-side “-” button, or its hotkey (it’s SHIFT-CTRL-Left, for me).
