Welcome Renoise Redux.
What is Redux?
In case you’ve missed the teaser and stuff: Redux basically is the Renoise instrument available as a VST/AU plugin. It runs in other DAWs, and you can load existing .xrni instruments into it.
Redux is a combination of a sampler and performance-oriented phrase sequencer and has expanded upon the set of features it has inherited from Renoise. It is more than just a small “Renoise”, as it introduces a slightly different workflow.

Pricing and Availability
A Redux license is 58 EUR (+VAT) or 65 USD.
For owners of Renoise, a Redux license is 40 EUR (+VAT) or 45 USD when ordered through the Renoise backstage.
Redux comes with a small but fine pack of example instruments, samples, DSP FX Chains, Modulation Sets and Phrases - all the components that make up an instrument in Redux; all you need to play around with Redux to see what it can do, but also to get your hands dirty. We highly recommend to switch through the included presets first to get an impression of what it can do.
For registered users, owners of Redux, there are 3 additional free packs available at the backstage too.
The file format of such XRNL expansion packs is open, so everyone can create and distribute such Redux extension packs. We’ll post details about this soon…
Redux and Renoise do share the same instrument format, so you can use instruments from Renoise in Redux and vice versa. At the moment you won’t be able to load up instruments from Redux into Renoise though, because Renoise isn’t updated yet. It will be soon, and then you will be able to use the extension packs in Renoise as well.
