Here’s my little wish-list:
I’ve noticed that when rendering a pattern, the output file is cut as the player reaches the end of the pattern and the output goes to the soundcard output (with a loud click). I think a “write N seconds of output after the end of the song” or even better “write to file until sound level falls below -X dB” parameter would solve this nicely. Anyhow, the rendering should not affect soundcard output.
CURRENT DSP EFFECTS DISPLAY:
on/off buttons for each effect on the list to avoid endless scrolling to switch off the last one (for example).
a possibility to select effects from the ‘rack’ that will be shown on the Track DSP panel.
load/save DSP effect patches or, even better, meta-instruments consisting of samples/VSTi and associated VST effect chains (like the mda ePiano -> PS-1 -> Compressor -> mda Stereo -> Reverb I use all the time ).
INTERFACE and AESTHETICS:
place the track move buttons on (or below) the track title bar, please
the AntiAliasing doesn’t work very well - could you make use of the Windows font AA mechanisms (WinXP’s ClearType can do miracles in making programs look )
please, please replace the M and X markers for muted/turned off tracks with something less visually unpleasant (esp. the M )
Edit: Ok, I’ve noticed that the M & X are skinnable, so I’d replaced those .bmps myself - but when will Renoise use the colours of the skin .bmps not rounding them? Themes are nice, but skins give much more freedom …
Hope I’d expressed my ideas clearly… Comments?
