Renoise 3.2 has been released, with a whole host of improvements, fixes and new features. This video gives some demonstrations and explanations of the most important ones.
Ringmod & Comb Filter
Wednesday July 31st 2019

Instrument MIDI Control

If you don’t have an external MIDI controller or would just like a software alternative to one, then the Instrument MIDI Control device can be used to send MIDI messages directly to the Plugin and MIDI components of a Renoise instrument. As an effect device it also has the advantage of being easy to control and automate.

Chorus, Flanger & Phaser
Friday June 7th 2019
The Chorus, Flanger and Phaser effects have a lot of similarities, both in their parameters and in how modulation is used to alter the input audio. With the Reset button they also share one powerful method of controlling the modulation.

In this fourth audio-visual experiment, the music’s song data was exported from Renoise and used in Unreal Engine 4 to drive various aspects of the visuals. As usual, the Renoise song file is available for download.

The Instrument Automation device works specifically with third-party Plugin instruments, but instead of being interpreted through MIDI, the parameter changes are sent directly to the selected Plugin.

This is the final update before I move on to other projects, which will build upon the non-Tetris parts that were created here. Though not as large as the last update, there’s still been a significant amount of additions and improvements and I’ll go over the most important ones.
