What feature are you hoping for in upcoming Renoise releases?

The ability to stack plugins to put a MIDI effect before an instrument. Consider Bitwig, Reaper, Ableton, probably most every other DAW that allows this without having to route it. This could be done by simply allowing instrument vsts in the audio effect area. In the same vein, if this is not a possibility, the ability to send and receive on multiple MIDI channels to be able to facilitate MPE, specifically for handling per note pitch bends which is not standard in MIDI hence the MPE workaround.

I love the overall approach of renoise. The amount of control over individual parameters is great. I love the tracker style. Just wished the above was possible.


the possibility to assigh midi input to “hide,show” VST windows (the “editor” button)

•custom scaling curves/scaling curve editor
•more macros (16, 24, 32) per instrument
•integrated parameter modulation, assignable by LFO or other mod devices in the modulation section
•2 filters per modulation set
•more filter types
•native FM
•native wavetables
•native integrated granular synthesis
•pitch shifter dsp
•frequency shifter dsp
•vocoder or multi-band splitter (32, 512 bands)


My favorite improvements would be a stacker system for sound generators, too. I agree, would be awesome, if this was possible in the fx section of an instrument. Since you already can drag instruments there. I think that the first device (input device) could provide an optional instrument selector, so then you would select multiple in the fx section (and also could get rid of the instrument number in the pattern optionally).

Then midi overwrite/overdub mechanisms.

And a parallel container for fx, too. If the first point was done, this point would be possible already, too. And you could save your stacker/fx setup into nice presets.

But I doubt such changes will come, since they require fundamental changes in the way Renoise processes midi signals. Porting to ARM seems to be a huge task already.

Hoping for a Renoise update soon - just finished an album, and am hoping for my synthesis/sampling/arrangement dreams to come true for a new album creation!

If Renoise got wavetable support, and a wavetable editor that matches the power of the sample editor. That would be wow. However, native loop point modulation in the sampler, would be close to perfection too.

Make a Recorder device or just add one to end of track chain, or just extend the sample recorder to be able to tap all tracks and arm record each…basically make multitrack live recording native in Renoise!


That’d definitely be a great way to make stems, then in Render dialog tell it to render just the Recorder devices. +1

exactly, could have a dialog overview to manage the rec arm of tracks etc, or in the mixer next to track name

and can have the option to create consecutive instruments if so required

Correct patchname showing for VST3 Plugins.

parallel dsp container
ability to route one mod set into another one


I’m still hoping for Ableton Link support since I don’t see Bitwig adding Rewire support ever now that it’s discontinued. JACK Audio doesn’t work on my computer before anyone suggests that

I’d love to see an updated Duplex baked into Renoise as part of the core, so that it’s fully compatible (the last release was 2017) as being able to interface strongly into Renoise would definitely attract more people to it.

Another is the ability to dynamically change length per bar, and have all of the notes dynamically move to where they should be, for example you’ve got a basic for on the floor, and you then need to make some triplets, you don’t have to think ahead, but just change the length per bar and have it all move as needed neatly.

check out this tool: Place Selected Notes Evenly | Renoise

makes triplets/tuplets a breeze without having to change your lpb or pattern length. great little tool

Ah nice!

Still though, I do look longingly sometimes at my partner with his piano roll style in Ableton editor just changing the division of the grid on the fly to put something odd in without changing the rest of the notes in the grid - so dreamy

honestly, I think this tool is perhaps better than that, especially if you like nested rhythms or complex polyrhythm. I set it up with a hotkey and it’s dead simple. Just place however many notes you want and select however many lines you want to divide them through, spam the hotkey, instant septuplets, nonuplets, whatever you want! The only limitation is lpb resolution. I routinely write whole triplet sections using this tool, and it’s quick and easy and only changes the notes you have selected :+1:

Please please please - start point can be moved around in sampler!


^^^Ya, would be excellent to be able to automate start position via macros. Loop points, too, would be huge…

That indeed would be cool but just to have a simple line… with an S on it… indicating start point that can be moved around… like pretty much every other sampler out there. I feel rude/odd asking cos it just seems like such an obvious thing to be missing, especially after so many updates. Forgive my ignorance but if a movable start point can’t be added, could the 0SXX be converted so that it becomes SXXX? Meaning that the effect numbers are dramatically increased allowing more precision?

I would really prefer improvements on existing stuff rather than new features. To list a few:

-The sample search menu. i’d like to have the option of searching by words but not only in the current folder, but its children folders and grandchildren etc. also, id like a way to open multiple subfolders at once, just like in FL Studio (you click a folder once and it opens its children, and so on). currently, you have to double click and actually enter the folder to see its content.

-The “mode of stretch” performed in the sample when you use beatsync. it has “repitch”, “texture” and “drums”, but honestly they don’t work that well. “drums” mode simply kills my drum transients for some reason. id like it to work better.

-the auto-slicing. sometimes i have a clear drum break full of very distinct peaks and the auto-slice will not put a marker on those peaks, no matter the percentage i set it. it just doesnt work that well, too. for some reason. no idea.

-The modifiers. I’d like to be able to alter the volume of a whole track/column in the song, but ONLY the volume. currently, as far as i know, if i go in the vol/pan/fx/delay modifier and lets say, i add “2a” to that track in song values, it messes with volume, pan and delay. i really want to be able to modify them separetely. seriously, this bugs me so much.
