Renoise 3.3 Trick To Make Local Send Tracks

(Renoise and Redux) New #Sidechain device

A nice trick with the new Sidechain device is to route it to melda MRatio’s sidechain and you can create a local send out of a normal track. mRatio allows you to hear its sidechain signal and blend it with the main signal.

Basically turn the Ratio control all the way to 100% to get full SC signal passing through. You can then use the Amount slider on the SC Device as you would on a normal Send Device.

I just got into Melda’s line of plugins in anticipation of this update and general need for a visual EQ. Their stuff just got much more powerful within renoise! Thanks for sharing the tip, let me know if you come across any others for Melda plugins :smiley:

I just asked in another thread if such plugin existed. MRatio it is :smiley: Thanks that will be so much fun :smiley:


Right now I am using a gate device and check the prelisten filters icon to do something like this. Is there any advantage using the melda vst?

I guess no extra advantage to MRatio unless you want the extra feature of blending in any audio present on the target ‘send’ track. Also If you don’t have any Melda plugs already, the installation manager can be a bit of a faff just to install/ maintain one plug from them, but probably worth checking their free/nagware if you do go ahead. Some handy stuff in there.

MRatio has also got a multiband version that I haven’t dug into yet, but there may be some creative possibilities to be had there too.

ah, thanks. That makes sense. I think I even had some melda plugins installed once but I made house cleaning in my vst directory recently, because I wasn’t using half of the stuff :stuck_out_tongue: I don’t need to mix in the receiver audio so I am going the gate way, with prefiltering as a nice extra.

anyway this is so much fun. sidechaining everything to everything else right now.

It’s work with native gate

Oh, wow that’s neat!

I get phase issues when I try to do that. The signal that arrives at the gate is delayed by a tiny amount it seems.

Yes, just confirmed here.

Would have been a nice native solution otherwise!

@weizenkeim were you using the native gate or a gate plugin for this? If native you might want to check for this phase issue.

Use delay in mixer.

SOrry not workin )))
