Crippled chords without a Full N-Key Rollover

Identifying the problem

What do writers, gamers and trackers have in common? You type so fast that you hold the keys before they appear on screen. The word "the" is so common, you simply press all three keys are pressed at once. But what happens with lenghtier words? BEEP! Or imagine, your rocket launcher refuses to fire because you are doing a diagonal doublejump in a First Person Shooter. It could mean the end of your virtual life.

Sample compression in XRNS files

Songs take less space in Renoise 1.8 than they would have in 1.5 and before. That is because the samples inside the songs are being compressed.

Whatever is explained here also applies to the internal filters of Renoise.

Gating: The best friend your heavy mix never knew it had?

People have often asked me, "BYTE, how do you get such aggressive mixes on just a crappy laptop?", to which I respond,  "What the heck are you talking about? These mixes are awful! They're wimpy as hell!" I know my sense of humour is dry and unfunny, but I do, however, have a few tips on getting a nice clean mix that can actually make track sound solid and more direct; more aggressive.  These tips can also be used for music which doesn't have to sound aggressive, so keep reading even if you are not interested in making dance music with Renoise.  OK, so here goes...
