Writing a book about Renoise


(Marc Shake) #1

We have a lot of nice wikis, tutorials, videos, websites and news-articles about the best DAW ever, but there does not seem to be a good ol’ printed book about it. So I started to create a book about renoise. It’s written in german and this is just a super small sneak preview. I think the book will be finished/published in march 2018.

Book-Sneak

Being a renoise-user since 2001 (wow, old-man-alert) I just want to thank the whole renoise-crew for creating such a great tool.

Wow. Having lived in Germany for these last few years, I know that not everyone here is fluent in English.

And I will read it too, to practice my own language skills :slight_smile:

It’s a huge job to do. Seriously, I could go the easy way and translate the fantastic manual but no: I really think renoise needs a book like those typical “blablabla for dummies”-books. I am at the outline at the moment and even those few chapters I have will be rewritten.

But March 2018 is a self-set deadline which I have to hit. Thanks for the kind words danoise

This is the second book I’ve come across lately, that I really want to read, that is written in German.

One more, and I’ll just have to learn to read German :slight_smile:

I found a book which mentions renoise favourably (along with sunvox and modplug tracker), has a few pages about the renoise sample editor and pattern editor:

everyday guides made easy, making music for games - david newman

The book makes the claim that some trackers can be made to run backwards. I am not sure if this is true. Tracks may appear to run backwards in extreme sequences, but it is an optical illusion…am i wrong?

There are a lot of oldschool-protracker-songs that display / play the patterns reverse. Some people even do “movies”.

:drummer: :walkman: :walkman: Maybe Taktik can translate it in his spare - time while not working on #Renoise ?

Ok, just kidding; good looking here !

I saw a milkytracker track here on the renoise forums which looked like it was running backwards.

I think the command used to achieve that was ‘Dxx - pattern break’.

Some parts I can’t explain. Individual tracks running at different speeds, some kind of mirror effect.

AFAIK, the renoisedevs, including the mint-tasty Taktik are working on something huge :wink: Thanks for the kind words.
