exactly! imagine something like Nerdseq but with Renoise
Could be even better but not an obligation, Pi have keyboard and mouse ^^
I’m all for an ARM-based version of Renoise, but I wonder what the use case is for using Renoise on a Pi? Wouldn’t it just be a cheaper, less-powerful desktop experience, or are you thinking of using it in some more of a mobile application, like SunVox or LSDJ on steroids? I have always wanted to have Renoise on a small netbook or tablet to use in live performance situations, but if I’m honest, a full-powered laptop is plenty portable and can do everything I want. How would you use a Raspberry Pi version differently?
It was simply that a 400 was just a throwback to the Amiga days for us old farts, but the fact it has no audio output kinda kills that anyway.
bought a 400 specifically for this new ARM version. You can have audio out with a simple dac, increases the fun
Just got a raspberry pi 400 to check Renoise on and have a long rabbit hole to go down in this weekend. Basically first time doing anything linux, so am struggling a bit finding a workflow. But love that almost everything you need is inside the small keyboard, will get the audio through hdmi and/or see if an usb soundcard works with it. Now first to get Renoise installed . It says it needs to be installed from root, but trying to paste the extracted tar inside, access is denied?
@Bungle - Throw a class-compliant USB soundcard on the back, you may well have one kicking about. Then you’ll have a setup more than comparable to an A500 with a parallel port sampler. You couldn’t really plug your headphones directly into the Amiga anyway, you had to throw something else on the back
If you don’t have one, maybe snag a cheap Scarlett 2i2 or something from ebay?
@trueschool - for me, the use case is a dedicated tracker box, one that doesn’t have all sorts of other stuff popping up and distracting me- like on the Amiga, when you threw out the OS in Noisetracker. I tried a Polyend Tracker for exactly this but it was full of hardware and software bugs. I have got further in one weekend in Renoise than I did in a month on the Tracker (before I sold it).
Add this to your wishlist : Renoise on a Steam Deck!
I’ve recently moved to Linux. Extract the tar.gz folder then navigate to the folder and hit shift+F4 (shift-F4 opens a terminal already navigated to the folder you’re viewing) to launch terminal. Then type “sudo sh install.sh” into terminal and it will install renoise. Hope that helps.
Edit: or, from any new terminal window type “sudo sh” then drag and drop the “install.sh” folder into the terminal and it will autocomplete the command.
Disclaimer: this is all based on my use of Ubuntu Studio.
That should Just Work™, it’s an x64 Linux box running a modified Arch-based distro, Sadly my Steam Deck reservation is currently showing Q3, but I shall surely be shoving Renoise on it. Linux holds few fears for me, having been using it since the mid 90s
Sam thanks for the help, on my pi400 just pressing f4 brings up the terminal and using your sudo… suggestion it indeed seems to install Renoise. Problem now is that I can’t seem to open it! While the pi400 is arm based and I’m using the arm Renoise installer, I get a “cannot execute binary file - exec format error” notice in the terminal when trying to open it (whichever Renoise icon I can find). Googling I’m reading this happens when trying to open a normal x86 64 linux file on an arm based system, but I prolly need to rtfm moar.
Maybe you are running a 64bit OS on your Pi400 and downloaded the 32bit ARM Renoise installer (or the other way around)?
Yep, was apparently trying to run the wrong version , Renoise backstage automatically shows the versions according to what system you’re running. In the pi400 case I can download;
Renoise 3.4.1 Linux x86_64 Stable
Renoise 3.4.1 Linux ARMhf Stable
Renoise 3.4.1 Linux ARM64 *Stable
The pi400 is 64 bit, so I downloaded and tried to install the Arm64 version first, this doesn’t work. I also tried the x86_64 build to no avail. The Armhf version does work , but I need to google why, what it stands for, what is the difference with the arm64 build? Glad I have it running, now to find some ladspa & dssi plugins .
The Pi400 has a 64it ARM processor. However, until very recently, the official OS (Raspberry Pi OS) was still a 32bit OS. Hence, if you have this installed, you need 32bit binaries of Renoise (ARMhf).
hey! the newest pi os update supports arm64 now happy dayzz!
