Renoise Pro Music Tracker
This is the best tracker I have come across (and my favourite piece of music software). The sample files supported include: wav, MP3, aiff and ogg. There is full VST 2.0 support and several native effects included. These features are well incorporated into the tracking environment which makes for very quick usage and easy application. The downside or largest lack in this software I feel is the lack of a decent arranger. The current one is quite fiddly (although usable) and can get quite confusing if you need to cut + paste large sequences. However a new full screen arranger is planned for the next release (1.3) which I think will give the best of both worlds: The speed and ease of a tracker and the convenience of a cubase style overview for large edits to a whole song. There is no line in recording yet but this can be done through VST (explanation on renoise forum). This though is also planned for a future release. Other upcoming features include: Piano roll Improved look Mid import (v1.3) Improved resolution (v1.3) + others (see web site for details: www.renoise.com) With the improvements planned this will become even better to what for me is a great piece of software already.

$45

The interface is the main selling point for this type of software with the easiest method for composing I have found in a music application. You basically enter the notes you want in individual tracks via the computer keyboard or a MIDI keyboard. These are then shown in each track as the letter of the note and the octave that note is in i.e. Track 1 Track 2 Track 3 -> (Up to: Track 64) 00 C-3 D#4 G-5 01 --- --- --- 02 G-4 --- B-2 03 --- G-3 --- 04 --- --- D-4 The screen unlike conventional mid editors scrolls downwards. This allows maximum tracks to be shown at one time and makes sense here for the way the notes are represented. The song is diveided into patterns of length defined by the user (default 64 lines) Not everyone likes this sort of interface but after a little practice it becomes second nature. There are some demo songs included which will speed up the learning process considerably.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The sound quality is professional and as good as the samples or VSTs that you use. The native effects are good but anything you feel the need for improvement on then VSTs can be used for. I would recommend though for mastering that another program is used ( a program made for this purpose)

There have been some small stability issues with renoise in the past but these have been and are getting ironed out at the moment. It is worth checking in the forum for details and for current users using it live. The support is excellent at renoise. I once had to contact the developers over a song I had that I couldn`t reload and was e-mailed back the same evening by the main developer. Bug reports in the forum are regularly responded to by the developers so any problems you have will be addressed. The best thing about the support is the ability to suggest and vote for (the latter if you are registered) new features which again the developers + users actively discuss on the forum.

OVERALL OPINION

Anyone who loves tracking will love this prog. I have been tracking for about 8 years on an Amiga and was put off modern computer music making by the complexity of doing things in an hour that would take me five minutes in a tracker. Renoise got me back making music with the modern sound quality that PCs and advancements like VST offers with the usability of programs like OctaMED on the amiga. There is a demo on the site you can download, only wav rendering and ASIO are disabled in the demo version. It is possible to save songs. Again @ www.renoise.com Happy tracking

Renoise Pro Music Tracker
It's just excellent.
I've tried Fruity Loops several times Fruity Loops, but I never found the simplicity and usability of Renoise, with a stability also exemplary.
The possibilities are the same, with some mastery, the other soft supposedly more "professional", with each new version, and significant improvements that make this app even more versatile and powerful.
With 50 euros you have a valid license for a full version (eg from 2.0 to 3.0) while benefiting from the new version (2.1, 2.5 ...) and after buying a license, you have 10 Euro discount if you renew it ... what more could a software which offers much more than other known, stability and more.
10/10...rien wrong with ...

Renoise Pro Music Tracker
To configure it like any soft at the sound drivers and noon.
We can choose shortcuts for songs, samples etc ...
Given the way I do is use a lighter biblilobotomothèque in cubase and it makes no duplicates, thank you for saving disk space and fragmentation.

The online resource is massive and impeccable, very clear.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

This app is powerful is the least we can say, I had to start the online doc Parallel, some videos on youtube (thank you Kaneel, thank you shaypah).
Once past the lock on the hex and how tracker, I quickly entered my first beat in 2 hours I had more of a frame component, manufactured / SLIC / a bunch of synchronized sound, incredible.
I think it suit me well in this way is to compose the interface.
And I am far from knowing the intricacies of soft ... it will eject altogether once learned it all.
Yet I started on machines and Reason and Cubase / re machines / vst therefore a priori nothing to do with the world of ETFs.

Renoise is the strength of the interface I think there is a single window and tabs, all controllable by shortcut.
Frankly cubase next is totally up to the street level ergonomics, you always full of windows and even optimizing with macros, workspaces that does not ease editing Renoise. Of course it's not really comparable software as well as the goal is to make Zique.

And as Renoise is complete, you have an integrated audio editor, a sampler which you hold your loops automatically to live, but better (the algorithm of Pitchshifter sounds better to me, better than kontakt also less than e -mu 6400 on the other hand but it I not heard one do so pretty soft).
Simple effects but the ease of stacking is creative.
A sequencer that provides more than a conventional sequencer, effects and subtle pattern is terrible, a try.

Not need a machine for the latest run is more than respectable.

I vaguely started with 1.5.2, there learn seriously about the 1.8, 1.9 strongly!

OVERALL OPINION

I'm still in the discovery phase but I took a good slap. j'adoooore.
50 euros is a gift.
I was thinking of buying Cubase 4, I'm going to work Renoise.
(When you think that Steinberg has not been screwed to an upgrade to Cubase 4 customers who have 20 years of repaying the entire soft ... it is not in the same world at all with Renoise, it also has .)

It is limited proselyte me but what you want I'm just conquered.

Renoise Pro Music Tracker
Installation: download, patch and hopla!

Incompatibilities: I use VSTS VSTis and quite basic so I have no problems of incompatibility up to date.

Manuel: There is an online wiki for this purpose, convenient, therefore, everyone can add their tips.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Laptop: P4 3ghz - 1gig Ram - ESI QuataFire 610.

No problem with the gear, jpeux comfortable using four instances of FM7 and several other channels enchainer armored VSTS without it breaks his face.
With new updates, Renoise is more stable than before, there is even a little option to panic when you get above a certain% of cpu, very convenient in this case.

OVERALL OPINION

Spread the word, tracker Renoise is THE new generation.
While it is not oriented to live but for the hard-composition.
How to program "ala tracker" is certainly a concept rather hard up for grabs at the beginning, being a former user of FastTrack and impulsetracker so I had no problem learning to use Renoise and I think now that Renoise as a first program mao is much easier to use than cubase / logic to see Live.

Quality / price ratio? Ah ah ah, less than 50 euros at the moment I believe, do not push it at that price you have nothing ... Finally, if a lil vsti .. you plug in what?

I use Renoise for over two years, I create all my tracks in, with the mix now I can finish my tracks with (used to export to finalize another more focused on the software mixing), I do not think m 'rid of before a long time, too used to this format of composition.

Surely I would do again and again that choice, especially with new updates coming in Renoise-large-spam

Renoise Pro Music Tracker
Installation:
A child's play! A file download on the manufacturer's website, simply execute it and you're jou!

Incompatibility:
The majority of VST and VSTi instruments is recognized, put a few Cubase VST own such as the FM7 ... But everything else is recognized directly! a real treat!

Configuration:
For a person from the world tracker (Amiga, among others) yes! found very easy the configuration settings in gnral and can quickly start trs concrtement make a song! For other ... It might be a little tedious! The trackers have their logic and their own operating environment ...

Manual:
Anglophobe, go your way ... The manual is in English ... Fully rdig Nanmoins, it is very well liberalization and more, along with photos and examples ...

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Configuration of my computer:
AMD 3200 +
1.5 GB of Ram
Asus A8ne-Deluxe
Sata Hard
Phase 88

The software works without any problem with this configuration! No crash, Quick Start. Nothing wrong.

Renoise performance:
Awesome! It recognizes the samples (fortunately for a tracker!) In *. mp3 and with the addition of an "add-on" (downloaded from the manufacturer) also recognizes the *. wav.
The edition of the samples is really good! No need to open another software to rework his sample! a real treat!
The vst work perfectly well too. Nothing wrong ...
The interface is clear and intuitive for a person from the world of the tracker.
The software consumes few resources trs memory (compared to another music software like Cubase or Ableton example). Nanmoins utilisedpendera the resource most often the number of vst utiliss less you use vst and more memory ... you'll have to give a concrete example, with the use of 4 tracks VST, I use my setup with about 11% of memory!
I currently have no bugs (I bought the pro version (V1.5) for the modest sum of $ 40 that can benefit from the "Render to wave")).
Small problem: I have not found a solution for Live (as a sequence of several songs for the era of Octamed amiga).

Stability with the hardware and software:
No problem report! Application started quickly, no bug.

OVERALL OPINION

How long I use it:
A year and a half.

Particular feature I like most / least:

Plus:
Stabilitbr /> Use VST and VSTi
Automation
Trs intuitive interface (for those familiar with the trackers).

Cons:
CRER impossibility of a live (as Octamed Amiga)
worse and nothing else! c software fantastic! ;)

Renoise Pro Music Tracker
- Installation is it without problem?
No problem, not fifteen miles PARAMETERS files as in other software, buffer size ... style, very easy


Have you experienced any incompatibility?
Yes with samples of fruity loops, some wav files are not recognized, weird ... but with all my other samples ca rolls and so far most vst vsti and fx that I walk with him install the software even if it recognizes a vst or vsti, that is not fruity

Gnrale configuration is easy?
To pluto is a simple tracker even if it's still very confusing to write like that at the beginning

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
no manual in the beta (the one that is so free), but by searching the net I found a few tutorials online and unfortunately in English ...

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)?
The software works he correctly on this configuration?
What performance?
This software + hardware configuration is stable?

This is my girlfriend's laptop, on my old pc I'm afraid that it crashes, it uses a little sometimes ... his laptop is a HP Athlon XP 2600 with 256 MB of RAM and 40 GB HD, so the AC runs .......... is stable, I have had a few crashes though ... (O of the 8 / 10, it could be embarrassing live)

but try it on my old, using samples that can be ca can do

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
A week and a half

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Most:
The automation geniales, super easy to achieve, the number of steps per measure easily configurable and allows for more rhythmic compositions shoots his cot lab that I like him, the audio engine (I find the sound better than fruity. ..), The Opportunities that I have not yet discovered

The -:
Some (very few) crashes
Interface confusing at first
the beta version does not "render to wave" good but just paste the vst "tape it" on the master track to find this function
the online manual and tutorials in English (if it knows or kelkun a forum that talks about Renoise ...)

Renoise Pro Music Tracker
Monstrously génialissime Tracker!
For those who come from around the AMIGA/ATARI/C64 (early PCs), they will not be disoriented by this software completely delusional ... compared to the old Soundtrack, NoiseTracker, PROTRACK & STARTREKKER ... followed by FAST TRACK / SCREANTRACKER & other PC ...
The effects are great ... getting started pretty fast, powerful and almost complete ... it's very professional!
Too bad there's no opportunity to easily find music format Renoise ...
DISKOP worse as the menu is not very comprehensive and not user friendly! A review.
