edit: ReSynth now released - get it here
As promised, here is a beta version of ReSynth for testing.
Please let me know any crashes / errors you receive with this tool and I’ll fix them before releasing to the tools page.
As you can see I’ve stripped out the redundant controls (envelopes and filter settings). These will gradually be re-introduced into the tool as API access allows.
When modifying controls the instrument will automatically update.
As per the artyFM native FM synth, each controls tooltip will display its current value and the ReSynth windows status bar will update to inform of any changes.
All controls are midi mappable, which allows quick and easy sound creation from (for example) an external midi controller keyboard. When using midi mapped controls, the GUI window does not need to be displayed.
As mentioned above, volume, pitch, pan and filter envelopes and settings still have to modified through the usual Renoise instrument pane.
To create a new ReSynth instrument use the menu from the instrument list or Tools -> ReSynth -> New ReSynth Instrument.
To open the GUI select a ReSynth instrument and select Open GUI from either the Tools -> ReSynth or instrument list menu.
edit: In case people were wondering what the purpose of this tool is: it is to utilise the native sampler functionality of Renoise to emulate a ‘standard’ subtractive dual oscillator synthesiser.
It makes this easier / presents a more ‘synth-like’ interface.
I’ve also uploaded some quick test patches here.
