I’m working on a bunch of old .xm’s & .mods in Renoise, bringing them to the new millennium and so are working with a lot of instruments showing;
Afaik right now you have to manually go through every old instrument and hit the ‘Upgrade Filters’ button, right? If there is a tool already that can batch do this for all instruments in a song or if there is a native feature that I forgot, please let me know!
If not and it would be possible to script this, that would be great to have as there are a 800+ files to go through .
I won’t make a tool out of this right now but I’ll share a code snippet that does it. You can open the terminal with Tools / Scripting Terminal & Editor, if you don’t have that here are two ways to enable it from the docs here
Launching the Renoise executable with the argument --scripting-dev
Opening Renoise’s config.xml file from the preferences folder, and setting the
property to “true”. This way, you don’t have
to pass the above mentioned argument every time you launch Renoise.
So, once you have the terminal you can paste this block of code into it and press enter to upgrade all of the filters in the song. Note that things might sound different afterwards.
for k, i in pairs(renoise.song().instruments) do
for _k, ms in pairs(i.sample_modulation_sets) do
If you already ran the code you can just press up on the terminal to recall the last thing and run it again without the need to repeatedly paste it in, handy if you are converting more songs in a row (of course code could be written to batch process a list of songs automatically as well).
