Very good tutorials with a lot of explanation in short times! It’s true that if you master the routing capabilities of renoise you will soon want to automate stuff that’s not in the VST’s own options and with Renoise you can work around it.
I would like to say that x800 resets the LFO to the leftmost point though! Making x801 out of it seems unnecessary.
Also, maybe the tutorial could take it a step further by showing use of combining multiple LFOs the old way (before MMixer); LFO => LFO2’s Amplitude (‘modulation’), or LFO => LFO2’s Offset (‘addition’), or how about Signal Follower => LFO speed?
What you end up with in the synthesizer video, is really good. I think I’ll do some experimentation like that too and capture it.
I also wanted to mention that despite being a seasoned Renoise user, I am thoroughly enjoying all of these videos, and have been picking up helpful tricks along the way. I appreciate how you show application of the features and not just mentioning their availability. Inspiring!
Neat tutorials, gave me some ideas! Don’t want to create another thread in begginer’s questions, so maybe you could answer a question related to signal follower? If signal follower affects some parameters in a track, (not in a current track), and when you render entire song with “save each track into separate file” ticked, does it render each track knowing that a signal follower from another track affects it?
Yes the modulation will still be applied, as long as it works when playing through renoise, it will render like that (I mean, obviously when linked to a previous track or device with (N/A) in the name it won’t work). The rendering process remains quite the same, only difference is the outputs of the different tracks aren’t added together into one single file . Send devices get a different treatment though, you might expect zero output from a send with mute source.
EDIT: Video has sound issues, I will take it down and upload another one as soon as I get some time. How embarrassing.
Sorry it took me so long to get another video up, but my microphone exploded and I had to wait until I could get a new one. Today’s update is just a nice basic introduction to the mulitband send device. Links in OP updated.
Brand new video. I was a little frustrated with myself for the quality of the last tutorial, so here is a meaty and wordy one showing off the power of the advanced editor tab in renoise. There’s alot I go over, and the AE is capable of a whole bunch of really useful things, so check it out.
