As I mainly work with samples, I use the pitching commands (2XY, 1XY) maybe too often, a little bit of arpeggio values on looped sounds and maybe a 4XY to cut of a sound here and there and also a good amount of E re-triggering. I mainly put in note-off’s for gating purposes, but that isn’t really a command now is it? Should dive deeper in some of the other ones and try out B00 for a change.
i use the 02xx and 01xx (pitch) commands a lot, as i enjoy letting the melody flow.
i also make heavy use of the Ex command (in vol-pan-dly column). it is a bit different in behavior than the 0Exx command (in the effects column) and i like the Ex behavior and sound best. i use this command to, for example, stretch out the endings of sounds (catch the final tone in the Ex loop by doing a whole bunch of lines with E3/E9/EA or whatever sounds good), fucking up beats, fucking up sounds, stretching out entire sounds (try a full pattern of E3 with, for example, a voice sample), and whatever surprise-effects Renoise comes up with.
also use the 09xx command a lot, but (aside from drums) mostly for adjusting sample start etc, so not very acrobatically most of the time.
B0/B1 command (again, in vol-pan-dly column, but does not make a difference, sound-wise) to either just reverse stuff or to play some B0-B1 pingpong to stretch out a sample.
I’ve got to say that the 09 command is my favorite and yes,if used creatively,it can bring great results.Then I also love 02 01 and 0B but I think that all the command pattern fx are equally powerful:)I’m just getting familiar with Renoise…
@vincentvc: good call doing ones you never use. instead of a separate thread, let’s add that to this one as well.
i never use: 04xx, 05xx, 06xx (use vol-column), 07xx, 03xx, 08xx, 0Bxx (use 0B in pan/vol/dly column), 0Cxx, 0Fxx.
if someone can enlighten and/or educate and/or enthuse me with a passionate monologue on any of the above, please do.
i have recently begun using the F000 command to stop the song at the end.
Yep I use 06xx & 07xx a lot. A cool effect for example, if you use 07xx together with 09xx you can give the sample a cool gate-effect to some extend as well.
04xx is really sweet too, to cut in drums or make melodies more interesting.
0Fxx is nice, but yeah you can just use the Chorus DSP for that and get more possibilities too…
