Renoise Tools


PadSynth is a sample generator that uses the algorithm designed by Nasca Octavian Paul. The idea behind this synth is that you describe the frequency spectrum of a sound, by assigning values to its harmonics. The sound is then generated from this spectrum, but with a twist: a "spread" is applied to the harmonics, so that the sound feels more "natural", less exact and digital.


Stepp0r is a step sequencer and pattern organizer for renoise. Control your favorite DAW with you favorite hardware. Move away from the mouse and keyboard to catch the flow of your current mood, or pimp your renoise skills with an additional powerful interface.

Guru is a Renoise tool for editing sounds on external hardware synths via MIDI. It provides a generic user interface for editing the parameters of the synth, and let's you store them as patches, that can be restored later on.

Guru also saves the patches with the song, so when you re-open a song synths and the patches you were working with when you saved it are restored.

All the parameters are MIDI assignable, so you can use it to map any MIDI controller to the synth.


xStream is a tool that allows you to generate or transform existing pattern/automation data via custom code. Depending on your experience with lua scripting, you can use the tool's built-in functionality or create new scripts (models) from scratch


Noodletrap is a tool that allows easy and precise recording of PC/MIDI keyboards without having to "make room" for a recording - recordings are instead stored within the instrument itself, using instrument phrases.


Information about the tool is located on github

CDP Interface

The Composers Desktop Project (CDP) is a collection of command line sound editing and transformation functions that can be run from the terminal. This tool provides an interface to these processes and integrates them into a Renoise workflow.

There are a wide variety of processes including sound morphing, combining, convolving, granular processing etc. Over 800 processes are supported by this tool which includes the vast majority of processes offered by CDP.


What are Tools?

Renoise Tools are scripts (XRNX files) that can be plugged into Renoise 2.6 and higher to add new features. To install a Tool, simply drag and drop the downloaded XRNX file onto a Renoise window.

Create your own Tools

Renoise Tools are built upon the Renoise Scripting API. If you want to know how to create your own Tools, please visit the Renoise Scripting mini-site and download the XrnxStarterPack.

Automatic Updates

Installed Tools can be automatically updated with the Tool Updater, which is pre-installed in Renoise 2.8 or later versions. To update your tools click on the Help/Find Tool Updates... menu in Renoise. /div>
