Maybe that’s not the best way to describe it. What I’d like to is load a handful of samples and assign each sample to a different key and to a specific track so that as I record, I can play different samples and have them show up on their own track. Is that possible? Maybe there’s a tool for it? I saw there was a step sequencer out there which kind of accomplishes what I’m talking about, but it looks like it’s no longer being maintained :-/
Cie is still working on the step sequencer.
He also offers a licensed version for the launchpad, so i suspect whatever changes he does to the official version will also be put through the free version…
Oh, OK, I didn’t see it listed in the Renoise v3 tools. It only kind of does what I’d really like though. With a drum machine it’s usually easy to bang on the keys and create patterns and then edit the patterns based on the sample. I don’t see how to do that in Renoise. The closest I can find is making a custom instrument, but you can’t individually mix and process.
Thank you for pointing to the step sequencer, vv
A new version of the step sequencer (which is compatible with Renoise 3.0+ and has some new features) is in work currently and will be released most probably early next week. This includes both, the free version as well as the Launchpad version.
