I think Renoise could use a “bar loop command (sb00-sbxx)” like Octamed and Impulse tracker has.
A good place to put is at the Master track so that its separate and out of the way of everyones workflow.
as well as a dedicated “retrigger” and “multiply ticks” column for the tracks. yeah:
I love commads.
the more the merryier!!!
Wow this request was made almost 20 years ago and no one has paid any attention to it.
I recently discovered schismtracker which is a emulation of impulse tracker and i, too, believe that bar-loop would be wonderful, but i guess my biggest issue is, why has Renoise never attempted to provide the same functionality that brought most users to want to use trackers in the first place? I can listen to Machinedrums “Bidnezz” Album (Impulse Tracker) or Aphex Twin’s “Drukqs” Album (PlayerPro) and hear all kinds of functionality that Renoise doesn’t have.
What does the “bar loop” command actually do? We have block loop if you want it, Rxx, ZKxx, etc.
I might suggest that it’s not the software that’s more limited, but the composer. Perhaps you don’t know renoise as well as aphex knew protracker!
I listen to drukqs and I hear tracker techniques all over it, but nothing that sounds impossible in renoise
Could you please be specific in what functions you would like.Btw I too would like more commands,bar loop would be good,jump to next pattern I’d like and highlight xx lines too.In terms of functionality be specific and suggest it,the developers do listen and add requests albeit incredibly slowly.
Very interesting take … this is the bar loop command … you set the command start position, stop position and how many times it should repeat.
So far, the closest thing I’ve found is the ZB (pattern break), which automatically sends you to a specific line on the next track which is not what bar-loop is at all, but hey … who knows … maybe I don’t know Renoise as well as I think. Please Please Please guide me good sir.
Oh yeah, that’s dope as hell. We should totally have that… @taktik please?
You could do something similar with ZBxx across multiple patterns, but it would definitely be a much bigger hassle. I think the easiest way to do something similar in renoise would be to split patterns off into smaller patterns, make multiple repeats, then rejoin the patterns using command option K and command option J
Oh … So, it was the software after all … and not just that Aphex Twin is better than me?
Maybe save roasting people for AFTER you understand what they’re talking about next time. While you are a super duper ultra mega musical and technical genius, you still have the ability to not know everything.
You tried all 3 commands? One of them appends the selection immediately after, you could build up an identical effect this way pretty easily if you resample the pattern and set snap to 16ths or whatever you need. Then all you’d need to do would be to change your pattern length to accommodate the new sample length
