only the mda collection atm, all vsti that i’ve tried crashed, no matter if it’s GUI or sans GUI. Will try downloading the vst SDK and compile some of the myself this week, have only tried binaries til now.
Wow, I didn’t even know there was an xhip port! Unfortunately it crashes Renoise when trying to play a note here…
 Also, trying to load any of the Helix banks found on the net (fxb) crashes Renoise as well… Loading single patches (fxp) seems to work though, maybe I’ll export the banks as single patches at some point, when I bother to boot vista…
@helix patches: i tried something like that. the thing is: the helix linux port is pretty outdated. at the time he ported it it seemingly didn’t have a default bank. so some patches will create a sound which is perhaps with much fantasy somewhere near the “original” patch. but most i tried did produce weird detuned patches/noise etc.
i’m actually testing all vsts plugins that already works with JOST and EnergyXT2 with renoise. It will take some time to debug and smash all the problems around, but i think this can lead to interesting results !
ah, and obviously a great thanx to taktik for doing this incredible piece of work available for linux too !
I also tried to save the default helix patches in RenoiseWx and load them into RenoiseLx, but no such thing alas. And i have no idea who ported the Helix edition.
But since Helix development is still going at a quick pace, you might get an answer from the original programmer who did the Linux port.
I’ve done the port. But i’ve started it long time ago, and Helix has now quite some new features so there is no way to make windows patches be loaded back into the old version i have ported to linux. Maybe i have to sync again the sourcecode from helix repository and do again a fresh new port based on the latest code.
Has anyone had a problem with VSTi’s opening up a window using the window environment (i.e. looking like it’s outside of ReNoise) and acting like renoise isn’t even in charge of it’s actions? This has happened for a couple of VST’s for me.
