I know this, and I’m talking not about 64bit arch, I’m talking about internal calculations… argh and that’s was just my guess.
I alredy pointed this - in 2.6 version of renoise calculations inside of some dsp’s became 64 bits, calculations betwen dsp’s was still in 32 bits.
Indeed is a good point, but instrument improvements are not everyone’s most favorite, so its also not really fair to spend a lot of time into “just this” again.
But we will for sure continue the instrument improvements at some point later.
First of all, this release rocks my socks, it’s like an early Christmas!
“-Right-side modifier keys are no longer hard-coded”
This is tiny feature is something I requested like a year ago when I spilled water on my keyboard and the right side Ctrl key got connected to the A key screwing up my renoise shortcuts. The reason it got implemented probably didn’t have to do with that thread but I’m glad it happened (though I have a new laptop now haha.)
Third, I just noticed in the keyboard shortcuts you can add a shortcut for “Extend group to here.” Very useful for making groups quickly!
The Group shows as an extra Track in of itself where you can add effects and pattern commands. I haven’t tried it yet but I assume it is talking about those put in these special Group Tracks, not those contained within all the children of the Groups.
Yeah I checked it out, you can have “master” group/pattern fx on top of the track ones. Cool!
I have a problem though, I can’t insert a pattern at the beginning anymore with Ctrl-Insert. This just inserts a pattern at the end.
No matter what other method I use, everything inserts at the end.
Ok, insert pattern at beginning works now, but now whenever I delete a pattern, no matter what the current pattern is, it always deletes the first one.
And when I delete a pattern it gets auto-cleared. Pretty dangerous imo.
It’s a really great update but I have one question though.
When using a VST and open the VST interface renoise itself loose the focus.
Which mean that the qwerty-keyboard won’t trigger a sound unless I click on the Renoise-window again.
Is this because I tried the x64 version and the plugin is 32bit (since I see a seperate application in the taskbar) or is this some new behaviour in 2.8?
Is it fixable?
always nice to try the new features
small question; “how big of a hassle is it to make more things detachable?”
like mixer for instance, (sample editor,pattern editor, disk browser and/or the sequencer.)
this would boost my renoise workflow like nothing else (dual screen setup)
