Renoise 3.1 now available
Renoise 3.1 has arrived, integrating all features from Redux and adding a few long-requested features and workflow enhancements.
New Features in version 3.1 include:
- Support for VST and AU MIDI generators, meaning you can now use specialized tools such as harmonizers, note matrices or arpeggiators - things that can "drive" other instruments in Renoise.
- Improvements to the sampler and DSP sound engines: completely new, rewritten filter section as well as optional oversampling and bandlimited sample playback. Various Renoise native DSP devices have be improved too.
- More love for Phrases: phrases (small tracker sequences, which can be triggered via notes from the main sequencer) have become a lot more powerful and streamlined too - when working within the phrase editor, you could describe it as "feeling more like the pattern editor - Renoise's main sequencer". And when working in the pattern editor, you have more options for controlling phrases as well.
- Presets everywhere. And now, libraries too: Renoise 3.1 includes a more powerful preset system. You can now store/recall samples and keyzones as presets too, and the whole preset browsing experience has been improved. Presets also easily can be shared and reused with Redux.
- Content Packs: If you are a registered user, you can log on to Renoise's backstage server to access a downloadable extras for Renoise/Redux, including instrument libraries, multi-sample presets and sound packs (including a new offering, Density by Mode Audio).
...and more, a detailed description of all new features can be found on the Renoise 3.1 launch page.
Price for new users is $75/€68 (+VAT for EU customers).
