Let me start my first post here by saying that, especially in light of the 1.9b release, Renoise is heading towards the ideal piece of software for me to produce [semi] professional music. As someone who started tracking in the late 80’s until the early 90’s and just got back into musicmaking, the progression this way of making music has made is astounding. And that is, for me, the problem aswell.
My brain is not wired for math/hex/formula’s and whatnot, it’s like being dislexic [sp?] but with numbers, so you can imagine that’s kind of a drawback. Altough i’m only a few months into learning the program, i’m getting frustrated because i’m still only scratching the surface of what is possible in Renoise. I’ve allowed myself the remainder of the year to, at least, get familiar with all facets of Renoise, but things are stalling and not in a small way due to, what for me is, an insufficient manual.
I realise that writing a proper manual is timeconsuming, and i’ve read the wiki’s and watched the youtube vid’s by that odd french dude, but i need/want! more. It’s like i’ve found a treasurechest but can only open the lid sofar to see the gold shining, youknow?
So, to make a long story even longer, i’m basicly appealing to my countryfolk if they are willing to spend an afternoon showing me the ins and outs of Renoise. Holland isn’t a big place, so there’s gotta be someone in the Randstad who’s crazy enough to do this? I’m not asking for an immediate invite, i’d like to see if we get something of a summer first and enjoy a short holiday and get myself familiar with the regulars on the forum [and pick up much needed pointers], so this is more a case of ’ no you got, yes you could have’.
Meanwhile, until i’ve found a way to stream mp3’s directly, download and have a listen to a track i’m least dissatisfied with: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SP1PWCGG but until i get proper monitors do me a favor, use headphones for this one.
Thanks to TacTic and the crew for creating a piece of software that makes me happy!
