Can the developers of Renoise /mods or admins of this forum can answer this question:
Is Renoise still under development?
I think all music software has sort have, “reached the pinnacle of development.” The question is not, “is Renoise still under development,” but more so, “is Renoise going to be supported for the future.”
The stuff below this line is not directed at you. More just general thoughts on the thread.
It is obvious Renoise is still supported by the dev’s and the community. Isn’t that amazing enough? VST and Rewire allow Renoise to forever remain the most versatile, formidable tracker around.
Any professional music producer nowadays should be able to afford more than one daw. And anybody who is a professional who uses Renoise should also realize, “its a tracker.”
As for the hobbyist music producer goes: the hobbyist is usually far more flexible than the professional. The hobbyist should use the software he enjoys and if there is a feature he is missing, there is almost always a workaround.
Piano roll/audio tracks in Renoise - I’ve never been a fan of those two ideas and less the piano roll than audio tracks, the latter I can understand and support if they arrived. True, that I also have licenses for Cubase and Reaper, still, I never saw the need for Piano roll, audio tracks, in Renoise as it is a tracker etc.
__Sidechaining is too easy: Renoise, rewire, Cubase.
