About this release :
As the title says : Wee need some more time to proofread the new manual.
The release build is ready, so we decided to have another RC release to
be sure that now everything is fixed that is fixable.
As I`ve mentioned in the previous release comments: we would like to
have the stables release possible before starting with the new upcoming
big features, thats why this release takes so long.
Some problems are not fixed though, and will not be fixed in the 1.27 final
release as its to dangerous to fix them now :
Instrument and track envelopes will under some circumstances
not play what you see in hermite mode. So use the linear or point
mode to be sure to get what you see or trust your ears only
When aborting to load samples in kontakt while loading a song, Renoise
When saving a song, it doesnt validate if there is enough free space on
These problems will of course be fixed in the 1.3 release !
Also, the import of MP3 samples is disabled in this build. It works without
flaws now, but we have to clear some patent issues before we can include
it in the final release.
Howto install :
You dont need to run the installer if you have RC01 installed. If you havnt
installed RC01, run the installer that you find in the userpages below
the download link to the executeable.
Howto report problems or bugs :
As usual in this forum or to firstname.lastname@example.org. But be fast please ! The
final release is scheduled for the next Monday !
History (changes since RC1) :
============= new stuff / addons / improvements :
± All native effects will clear their buffers now when you turn them off
with a patterneffect of by pressing the “mute” button. This avoids, that
you hear some “old sounds” when switching them on again.
Also all native effects buffers get cleared when pressing “Panic”.
± Instrument envelope presets will now store and recall also the loop,
sustain, decay and LFO settings
± The last used size of the Diskop directory and file view is now stored in
============= Fixed :
<- Paning was reserved in the last RC version.
<- VstProblems :
- Changing presets while playing could cause a crash with some VSTi`s
(Absynth for example)
- TC-works sometimes crashed when fidling around with the editor’s
<- The “Suppatrigger” VST effect works again now. It was disabled by accident in the last RC
<- When importing old Renoise 1.2 Songs, empty instruments showed “Midi Cha”
instead of nothing
<- The loop playing direction was reseted when gliding notes
<- You could delete notes when not in edit mode. Now you cannot edit anything
in the pattern when edit mode is off
<- The little switch ‘Edit On/Off’ on the top left of the pattern editor
didnt switched the edit mode when clicking with the mouse on it
<- FPU problems (tracks got silent under rare circumstances) with the new Moog
Filter. Could also result in a crash when the scopes where visible.
<- “ASIO DirectX Full Duplex Driver” and “ASIO Multimedia Driver” (Cubase
installs them) will no longer be shown in the ASIO device list. They
are terribly slow and seem to work only with Cubase.
<- Fixed a crash, when an ASIO driver reported an error under rare circumstances.
<- Column off didn`t worked with MIDI instruments.
<- When vertically scrolling patterns with mouse-wheel to the last line, the
yellow bar in the automation went out of range and appeared between others
controls on the right.
<- When rendering in multitrack mode (one file per track), the rendered tracks
didnt go into the appropriate directory “xxxxxx Rendered”, but remained in
the upper directory.
<- The vibrato effects worked only in the LAST effect column of a track.
<- When you`ve set pulse or sine as waveform in the instrument envelopes to
modulate the pitch, the pitch was constantly rising instead of only modulating.
<- When recording with a MIDI keyboard, without having the cursor in a note column,
sometimes the notes didnt got recorded at all or in the wrong note column.
Thanks again for helping us, making this release the as stable as possible !
