Introduction To Instruments
Thursday September 11th 2014
A short overview of Renoise instruments and how they relate to samples, plugin and MIDI sounds. This is the first in a new series of official tutorial videos, where the idea is to create them in a shorter modular format so that they’re easier to keep updated as new versions of Renoise are released. However, until Redux and Renoise 3.1 are released, the focus of the videos will be on simpler topics that are unlikely to become outdated quickly.

Ever since the days of Protracker on the Amiga we’ve seen the power of changing the size and position of a sample loop. Now with Renoise 3, the opportunity is finally here to implement the ability to automate loop-points.
The video plays some demonstrations and then shows an idea of how this could work, while filling you in on the technical details and musical benefits.
There is also a download available, which contains all of the sounds, music and narration from the video.
