I’ve searched for the word ‘transpose’ in the offline manual and skimmed through my printout of shortcuts but I can’t find what I’m looking for. Can you transpose a single note in the pattern editor? I only want to move individual notes up or down without re-recording them and I don’t want to move the entire column up or down?
once you have selected the note you want to transpose (I usually do this by pressing LCTRL+B and LCTRL+E in rapid succession to define the begin and the end of a selection, but you can also do this by mouse), use LALT+F1/F2 to transpose the note down/up.
to look for a shortcut, you can also use
Edit => Preferences => Keys => select “Pattern editor” in the dropdown list and use the searchbox to look for keywords
Thanks. This will help heaps. I wanted to transpose some notes without altering the velocity etc (which would have happened if I’d used my Midi keyboard). Shame you have to select the note first but thats something I can get used to. I wonder if I could make my own macro to do this in Renoise… better go read the manual again.
… it has the ‘pitchshifting algorithm’ of playing back the sample at a different speed…?
Basically I just want a pattern effect that plays back a sample faster (‘higher’) or slower (‘lower’) independent of the “pitch class” that’s sent to the instrument, because I want to be able to go tick-tick-TOOOK-TOOOK with a snare sample that’s in a drum instrument without having to break it out into its own instrument (which you can do now, and it’s easy enough to do, just kind of seems like an unnecessary step).
i.e. I want an equivalent of the 02xx effect that jumps straight down to the new pitch without having to travel there.
for such a result you could set the Ticks Per Line to 1, using command F201. Since the 01xx/02xx command, as many others, interpolates its action on the number of ticks, if you set the number of ticks to 1, there will be no interpolation
