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.

Main features

Midi Zoom Select

Gives the possibility to position left/right zoom, selection, and loop markers with midi control. Selection and Loop are computed relative to the current zoom.


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.

Midi Management Console

What is the Midi management console about?
The midi management console offers a birds-eye view to your midi attachments to your instruments as well as it makes it easier to chain instruments to one midi device (instrument layering) and allowing to edit multilayered recordings without the hassle of having to manually edit a multiple of the same note to have it deleted or added in each track each chained instrument was recorded in.

JX Programmer

Note! This tools has been replaced by the tool Guru, which allows for editing many other synths as well, See the Guru page

JX Programmer is a Renoise tool for editing sounds on the Roland JX-8P, MKS-70, and JX-10 (Super JX) synthesizers via sysex, similar to the original PG-800 hardware programmer from Roland.

It has got a user interface for editing all the parameters of a tone in the synths, and a switch to select which one of the two tones on the JX-10/MKS-70 to edit.

Set Current Line Number By Midi Message

Finally, allows to bind midi messages to skip to a certain line. Supports any pattern length. You can now use your MIDI controllers knobs to DJ the sh** out of your evil saw sounds, beats, etc.

Grid Pie

Renoise cut and pastry. Live sequence recombination.

Grid Pie is a performance interface. It lets the user combine different parts of a linear song, non-linearly, in real time, using a special looping pattern as a live drafting area. It does so by taking over the Pattern Matrix.

Video demo: here.

GridPie is also available as an application in Duplex Beta. This stand alone version will eventually be deprecated in favour of the Duplex app.

Midi Convert

Converts a Renoise song into a MIDI file. Notes are grouped by instrument and exported per track.

SysEx Librarian

The SysEx Librarian tool incorporates MIDI System Exclusive librarian functionality into Renoise.

It allows the user to send standard '.syx' format SysEx files to any available MIDI output device, and to record and save them from any available MIDI input device.

Sending '.syx' files can either be performed from the menu item outlined below or by loading them from the native Renoise file browser panel.

Duplex Browser

Duplex is a collection of scripts that control various aspects of Renoise with plug-and-play support for a wide range of hardware. The applications range from controlling basic aspects of the Renoise application (like Mixer, DSP chains, Pattern Matrix), to more adventurous applications like sequencers and performance tools.

What makes Duplex special is the strong focus on bi-directional communication. In practice, this will ensure that your controller is always in sync with Renoise, no matter what you do.
