Renoise 2.7 is now announced as stable and ready for production.
For the occasion they've teamed up with Puremagnetik.com to bring you "Puremagnetik XRNI Essentials Volume 1" - a hand-picked selection from their catalog of multi-sampled instruments. This sample pack is free for all registered users, new and old.
With about 500MB of sounds, from studio instruments like a Stratocaster and Mellotron to lo-fi digital chip sounds, "Puremagnetik XRNI Essentials Volume 1" comes with an added bonus, including a sampled and programmed Yamaha Conservatory Grand Piano. The package contains: Analog Synth Basses, Circuit Bent Drum Kits, Buchla Drum Kits, Mellotron Strings and Flutes, Glitch, Toy & Lo-Fi Sounds, Fender Rhodes Mark II, Model-C Clavinet, Electric Guitar, Upright Bass, Classic Analog Synths, Grand Piano, and more.
They've also announced an upgrade to the XRNX site and a Tool Update Downloader which automatically updates installed tools.
Renoise's internal instruments have been re-engineered. The focal point is a new keyzone editor that supports overlapping, velocity, and key release mappings. The Sample Keyzones editor brings with it user interface changes, improved drumkit generation, new tuning options, new sample properties, and loop modes. Live instrumentalists can also tap into new realtime rendering modes and MIDI input routing, making Renoise on a laptop a potential replacement for your old sampler.
The revamped Automation Editor now provides a zoomable overview of the entire song, as well as improved envelope resolution.
Internal FX get a new Comb Filter and a Multiband Send that lets you redirect a single sound source to 3 send tracks. New draggable gain and frequency handles in the native EQs add flavour and finesse to the tools. Other changes include improvements to DSSI, MIDI optimizations, hardware-compatible solo mode, adjustable audio headroom, pre-count, ameliorations to the Lua API, and other changes in every aspect of the app.
