Re: new renoise 2.8 update

I can play such parts into the tracker but editing them is a nightmare; I need to 'see' chords, not read reference notes. Actually, for note visibility for me renoise wins because I can see all tracks at once and therefore know any accidentals. It makes working with complex key changes loads easier.

Re: what was your worst hardware purchase of all time?

Toss up between the crappy behringer multiband compressor whose input is so low you need a preamp before you can use it and the Presonus Firewire Studio project which makes me sad beacuse if it didn't fart like a bastard all the time and would allow me to get to a decent latency without glitching it...

Re: VSTi's or Ableton instruments?

Sampler is superb... I'll use operator for some things other than that I tend to stick to vstis because i flit between live and renoise a lot.

Re: Kick and Snare Squashed In Mastering

remove frequencies you don't need from them so they take less headroom and therefore get squashed less.

But as to bitwig, they've done an incredible job on they hype, but I'm too old and cynical to just straight believe it. I need to see it.

Re: Bitwig

At this point we have no proof there even IS a piece of software, never mind if it: a) Does what it says it does b) is stable and doesn't crash every 2 minutes c) is ACTUALLY pleasant to use d) has built in fx/synths worth using e) doesn't eat your cpu like cheese whizz At the moment here's what we ...

Re: Poll: Who is sticking around and who is moving on?

My personal thoughts on Bitwig is that we can't say for certain anything about it yet apart from the fects they have on the site which may be functional, may be not. Until I'm playing with a finished/beta version of Bitwig I'm not going to accept anything I read. It's not the first time someone's ro...

Re: Rob papen Punch

I can tell you microtonic is superb, as are the d16 drum machines.

Not tried punch.

But yeah, get a good compressor, it'll sort out your sound.

Personally PSP Oldtimer makes me very happy. It doesn't sidechain but it does just simply sound great.

Re: Poll: Who is sticking around and who is moving on?

Kind of half and half really... It doesn't crash THAT much on me, and it's really versatile, the only bits that feel missing are niggles I can live with. That said I write a lot in renoise now, I'll always stem off the mix and finish the full job in Live now so i have free CPU cycles and add the ext...

Re: total novice to operator

For stabs it's all about short envelopes on all oscillators. If you want things to sound smooth use easily divisible harmonics 0.5 1 2 4 etc the less divisible the number the more inharmonic your resulting sound will be. If you want just smooth chords then use the above but with bigger envelopes. Pr...

Probably a stupid question about routing

Hello there. Ok, basic situation: I want to sidechain a bus compressor to a bassdrum and I've chosen a third party compressor, just because I like the sound. I, of course still want to keep the original sound, so what I'm currently doing is creating an extra track which has an audio in from the bass...
