First of all, I wouldn’t like to be treated like a spammer
3 weeks ago, on polish musicians usenet group I joined a topic about format converstion and suggested one of my friends to include Renoise Instrument format into his conversion tool. I must admit, that I was thinking about converting my collection of commercial AKAI sample CD’s from native format into something more useable. I dropped Cubase VST 5 years ago and I’m happy with Renoise at this time.
We exchanged some emails with taktik (thanks for support dude, It’s great that you have still some free ;D time ) and today I received (because I’m registered user) the new version of EXSC that supports XRNi format and works great.
You can google it by yourself, as I wrote above I’m only the happy user of this application and I think that’s a great example of producent & customer collaboration. I won’t answer any questions about future funcionality, I know that it will be expanding with Renoise Instrument format and that’s all!
As I mentioned before, I was tired of workarounds to use old sample libraries and that was the main reason why I asked Wlodek to add XRNi format at this time.
When you export (for example) multilayered Drum Kit program, that has 5 velocity ranges, EXSC will output 5 full key-zone drumkit renoise instruments - one for each velocity level. It’s easy to load 4 or 5 drumkits and randomize their instrument number on pattern track plus assign groove style.
