In this final part of the series, we take a look at the specifics of using the effect commands for Devices and MIDI.
A few years ago I had an idea to create songs in Renoise using only instruments constructed by myself. That way I would be free to release the original song files for others to download and mess around with. So I started doing that and the results were… pretty good, which was not good enough.
Then I became aware of what was coming for Renoise 3: a completely revamped and more powerful instrument system, especially for samples. This was further improved in version 3.1.
Now I’m creating a series of short audio-visual experiments to get up to speed before any ‘proper’ releases. The main goals are to construct a large collection of quality instruments and further hone the skills for animated visuals.
The six Global commands impact the playback of the entire song: Tempo, Lines Per Beat, Ticks Per Line, Toogle Groove, Break Pattern and Delay Pattern.
Explanations and demonstrations of the three Panning and three ‘Other’ commands: Autopan, Track Panning & Width, Stop FX/Notes, Trigger Phrase and Track Routing.
So here’s Riftris version 1.2, which I wasn’t even going to do, but Unreal Engine 4.11 was a huge update, including support for Oculus Runtime 1.3. I’ve also added a Next Block indicator and the ability to control the randomness of picking new block types.
The sixth part of the Effect Commands video series, Playback, has been added to the playlist, with explanations and demonstrations of the six playback commands: Trigger Slice, Play Backwards, Envelope Offset, Delay, Retrigger and Maybe.
Here’s Part 5 of the Effect Commands series, Volume, with explanations and demonstrations of the six volume commands: Fade In & Out, Tremolo, Cut, Channel Volume and Track Volume.
The next two parts of the Effect Commands series are now available. Part 3 deals with some essential information before demonstrating the rest of the Effect Commands, the first of which is Part 4, the five pitch commands: Arpeggio, Slide Up & Down, Glide and Vibrato.
