@Fsus4,do not exaggerate and read the context.It’s very simple. Taktik is he just keeping Renoise (Taktik alone). If he is not, there will be no more Renoise.Investing time in other projects is not investing in Renoise.It is not about doing complicated operations, it’s not about using all the time. But he is alone, he can not work miracles.Some want Renoise to keep moving. That is all.
Nor is it to destroy opinions or to think that a desire is an imposition.Now the only programmer who has Renoise is spending time on another project. That other project is not Renoise. Meanwhile, Renoise is “parked”. Simply that.
And frankly, as Renoise’s client, I care less about other projects. I’m only interested in Renoise and its future, because I want to continue using it, but if it has better features and fewer errors, better, for everyone.
For example, when Redux was developed, it was a topic I did not like. Because that time invested in Redux, it could have been to have a Renoise 3.2, for example, better, with better features. Examples: better code, less errors, better GUI, better area of automation, more functions here and there to improve other areas of work and things like that. I do not think it’s crazy at all.It is perfectly feasible.Redux is of no use if you have Renoise as the main DAW. It’s fine for other DAWs, but I’m not interested.Maybe my opinion does not please you, but that’s how we all are, with different opinions, all respectable.
Well, I’ll answer:
Here is my opinion, in contrast:
If taktik spends his time on other projects than Renoise, that’s his choice and none of our business.
If taktik spends time on other audio projects, chances are high that those projects will add something of value.
It’s refreshing to switch projects, try out new stuff, get out of the loop. Get some new perspectives (and customers?).
Fsus4hopes taktikwill go OPEN SOURCEwith Renoise, or at least LICENSE a stripped down engine version for B2B.
No one has said otherwise.I hope that Taktik will invest more time in Renoise. He will do whatever he wants, of course.Taktik is only as a programmer, as he reported…
That’s fine if Renoise was backed by a small or medium-sized business with multiple programmers (2-4 programmers). If the only programmer is elsewhere, Renoise stagnates (it’s happening these months).
The only feasible way to get more customers for Renoise is that Renoise is a better software.There are many alternatives.What do you want other projects for?The market is very saturated.But there is only one decent DAW as a tracker, which is Renoise.You need to pamper him like a baby, and leave the nonsense to one side.
Maybe he prefers to keep full control of his software, there is no need to do it, because there are plans to keep this program as of now, little by little.
Just a new project that I would like: another tracker DAW like Renoise (with another name) powered by Taktik scheduled from scratch, it includes the inheritance of your experience. This is an impossible idea.Because a tracker today does not sell.But I am sure that this programmer, with his current experience, today, currently, would write other Renoise 1.0 in another way, with better code, with more capacity, more resource utilization, better GUI and a long etcetera, and of course, more modern…
Yes, Renoise 3.1 is fine. But let us all let Renoise continue to evolve, even if its development is very slow…I do not want other projects. The market is saturated with them!!!
