I want to be a bit faster in Renoise. Right now I’m using the trackpad a lot, and it feels a bit clumsy. There are a lot of keyboard shortcuts–which do you use most often? What features do you use most often in arranging a song in the pattern editor and pattern matrix? Thanks.
Instead of selecting regions to delete / copy / paste the entire track in a pattern. I often use shift-f3 / shift-f4 / shift-f5.
Another trick- I use shortcuts to change focus to all the panels. This way I can change focus to a specific panel (e.g. instrument settings or disk op) instantaneously without having option-tab / option-shift-tab panel (I’m using a mac) by panel to switch focus.
A lot of my tools are just there to have handier keyboard shortcuts, I’ll just post what I got for that
Ctrl+G: Group Selected Tracks
Shift+S: AutoSelectInstrument toggle on/off
Shift+D/V/P: PushBack Delay/Volume/Pan column…
Shift+O: Set Track Output Delay in Sublines… (from LayDee tool)
Shift+X: PDub (double the pattern length & copy)
Shift+C: ReMaster slices (copy properties like txpose from sample #1 to others)
Shift+F: Insert FX… from SirDancelot tool
Shift+G: Instrument Mixer… (plus lots of keypresses)
Shift+K: Layer All
Shift+,/.//: Note Solo to the left/all/right
Alt+,/.//: Extend selection to the left/all/right
Numpad+/-: SelectOrAdd from AutoAddNewInstrument
Shift+Alt+1: Load Recently Saved File #1
4: Toggle Show all/no parameters in mixer of current device
BestViews tool: F5 Maximize&Focus Disk Browser, F6 Show/Hide Upper Frame (&activate handiest tab) F7 Lower Frame, F8 Toggle Both Frames
NumPad Zero (0) sets edit step to 0
NumPad Period (.) sets edit step to Lines Per Beat
NumPad 3 sets edit step to 4*LPB
RAlt for Play & Loop Pattern
PlayPlusPlay Song From Start: Ctrl+RCtrl
PlayPlusPlay Looped Pattern Sequence: Alt+RCtrl
Convert (Selection in Pattern) Instrument: Alt+NumPadEnter
EditStepTweaks; edit step lines down/up: NumPad2/8
wanna make a keyboard controllable Rotate Pattern…
regular nontool shortcuts:
It’s really handy to learn these:
Alt=Selection, Shift=Track, Shift+Ctrl=NoteColumn, Ctrl=Pattern
with these F1/F2 is transpose 1 down/up, F11/F12 octave down/up, F3/F4/F5 cut/copy/paste
So I have set Alt+R to render selection to sample, Shift+R to render track to sample, etc.
Alt+Q/W/A/S/Z/X and Ctrl+B/E to select stuff
I have the 1 (one) for solo, and A for mute. It’s the best.
Shift+A for toggle mute note column
F to show sampling (recording) window
Jump to next track in PE: NumPad4/6
Jump to row #0/16/32/48: NumPad1/7/5/9
Go Up/Down in Sequencer (in subset Pattern Editor): PgUp/Dn
Ctrl+NumPad Slash/Asterisk halves/doubles edit step
is chord mode here and Ctrl+ is metronome
Collapse/expand track and Ctrl+Alt+ Collapse/expand group
Oh yeah and still one of my most used shortcuts is Ctrl+, for the Preferences window
edit: reorganize list as it’s kind of long?
ALSO. This is my 808th post. fuck yeah />/>/>
edit2: forgot Ctrl+G, duh
Thanks both of you I will try those out.
