Would be really really cool if Renoise was specifically adapted to the Steam Deck for on the go tracker-based beat-making
UI mode adapted for small touch screens (could also be helpful for those on other handhelds (Raspberry based or GPD laptops)
Steam Deck’s controls fully mapped to Renoise navigation, commands, composing, playing etc (could also be made compatible with Xbox/PS4/Switch game controllers)
Performance optimisation if required for the Steam Deck’s OS and APU
Make sure the installation is smooth and icon can be easily added on the Steam interface once installation is done.
I think such integration would bring Renoise a whole new experience and probably new public as well.
I personally haven’t invested on a Renoise licence yet but I’m receiving my Steam Deck in the coming days and I’ll probably test the demo of Renoise on it to see if it’s usable. From my short experience on the Demo on Mac, I believe it will probably need some stripped down UI to be usable on the Steam Deck’s screen.
I wonder if the physical controls send key stroke messages to the system that we could already map to Renoise, I will test and tell you if it is the case.
What do you think ? Would you use your Steam Deck as a tracker-based groovebox on the go or at home ?
