Renoise 1.27Beta1 is finally available for registered users. The official
non beta relase for everyone will follow shortly (as soon as all reported
bugs are fixed).
Use this version with care ! Its tested by us and should not contain any
big bugs, but we can only be sure of that if you help us testing!
The more bugs and small problems you find and report now, the more
stable will the final version be.
How to install :
Log into the userpages and download and run the Installer first.
You will find the link to the installer in the “installation notes” in the
user pages and not! on our www.renoise.com downloadpage !
After that, overwrite the Renoise.exe with the executeable you`ve
downloaded from the userpages.
About this release :
This release containes tons of small improvements and preparations
for the upcoming big features like a fully bitmaped skined graphical
interface, the piano roll, the MAC version of Renoise and the arranger.
See the list below for details.
We also fixed a big compatibility problem with some GFX cards, which
resulted in a slow graphical interface and improved the overall GUI
The Help file is not yet updated. But it will be in the final relase.
How to report a bug :
Please write as usual a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or post into this
forum. Please make clear wich version of Renoise you have used
when reporting a bug !
Whats new :
Added : new improved DiskOp
not much of the old one is left, so I’m too lazy to list the new features
here. Take some minutes to play around with it.
Added : support for ogg samples (load them in the diskop as sample)
Added : A new device to the native effects section :
“StereoExpander” This device can reduce (to mono) or expand the
stereowidth of the incoming signals.
Added : The old compressor is now back as “Shaper” (tm in the
native dspdevice section
Added : The current selected Track and Instrument is now saved with the song
Added : 2 new GUI performance options (available only in the
config.xml) mCooperativeGUIPerformanceInWindowedMode (default 1)
mCooperativeGUIPerformanceInFullscreenMode (default 0) By default
Renoise uses now all the available CPU in fullscreenmode and is more
gentle in windowed mode. You can change this behaviour by modifiying
these flags in the “Config.xml” file. For example : if you dont want
to run other programs beside Renoise but want to run in windowed mode,
set the mCooperativeGUIPerformanceInWindowedMode to 0 and all free CPU
power will be used by the GUI to have a faster and smoother GUI.
Added : Remotemapper improvements : You can now specify a range
(min/max) for the remotemapped value and interpret the value inverse
Added : a vertical Sliderbar in the PatternEditor
Added : You can now clone whole sequences of patterns in the sequencer
via keyboard shortcuts :
CloneCurrentPattern (LControl + LShift + LAlt + F1) acts as usual
and inserts a new unique pattern directly behind the current one.
CloneTwoPatternSequence (LControl + LShift + LAlt + F2)
CloneElevenPatternSequence (LControl + LShift + LAlt + F11)
CloneSongSequence (LControl + LShift + LAlt + F12)
Will clone the current selcted pattern plus the next X Patterns and
add them as a new unique sequence behind the currrent one.
CloneSongSequence will do this for the whole song.
This is of course only a temorary solution, but it works. I’ve added
this as it sometimes a pain to do such operations with the current
sequencer. Of course the new “arranger-like” sequencer will fix this
but as this will take some time to implement this solution might be
handy in some situations. (At least I used it a lot the last time
Added : a new 4Pole 24db lowpass filter to the filterdevice
Added : new keyboardsection “InstrumentEditor”. Right now only
“BackToPatternEditor” is defined there but more key assignment will
Added : new Button “Hide all unused” next to the patterneditor to
hide all unused pan- and volume columns in the song
Changed : Faster GUI (and the GUI lagging problems on some machines
should be fixed now)
Changed : Faster “Rendering To Disk” (only available in the
Changed : smoother Patternscrolling
Changed : Trackmuting works no longer as it does on mixingboards by
defalt now: When muting a track, no notes are triggered from the
pattern, but you can still play notes via the keyboard on it. This
means that the track will no longer calculate audio as soon as its
muted and you can free up some resources by muting tracks.
Changed : The internal “Filter” device uses less CPU now
Changed : The “*MidiCCDevice” shows now also the Name in the
Changed : The Track / Song and Instrumentnames are no longer limited
to 20 chars. Also the Instrumentnames are now also visible when no
sample/ VSTi or MIDI instrument is assigned
Changed : When the cursor is not on a noterow and you are playing
notes via the Keyboard in non Editmode, the next available noterow is
automatically used so that you can also play notes when a volume/pan
or effectcolumn is selected
Fixed : a bug in the XM importer that skipped importing some XM’s
with a “Importing failed. File is corrupt” Message.
Fixed : All native filters sound now the same on all samplerates.
Also the wrong frequencyrange of some Filtertypes is fixed now.
Fixed : VST effects where always active after loading, even if you
saved them disabled (bypassed).
Fixed : fixed crackling problems with some TC Works VST`s :
(DeEsser/Compressor, Limiter, SideChainer, Parametric EQ, Graphic EQ)
Fixed : The parameternames of the “*MidiCCDevice” and
“*VstiAutomationDevice” where not updated correctly in the
Fixed : when copying patterns or tracks, envelopes where not
Fixed : ImpulseTracker modules with no trackdata crashed
Fixed : when moving the virtual screen in the trackdsp’s, some
pixels where not properly cleared
Fixed : If you applied the track-fx to a sample then even fx which
where off where applied to the sample.
Fixed : When selecting a value in automation, the number for the
lines wasnt shown in hexadecimal, although hexidecimal patternno was
Fixed : The statusline showed wrong (previous) effect chain number
in the mastertrack when typing in effects
[…] as usual tons of other small improvements and fixes : )
