Arguru passes away in a car accident

We are sad to hear that Arguru has died in a car accident on 3 June 2007.  He was a very talented programmer and creator of a lot of great software, including NoiseTrekker, which formed the basis for the very first version of Renoise.

One picture says more than 1000 words. One video says more than 1000 pictures. Is there a better way to show Renoise in action? We caught Monsieur Baguette on tape for some hands-on Renoise action. Kaneel video

Renoise supports Sound Design course at the University of California

Traditional horizontal sequencers are widely used for educational purposes, but how well do trackers fare on schools and universities nowadays? In any case, it would be interesting to see how students respond to working with Renoise. Recently we sponsored several copies of Renoise for use in a Digital Video & Sound Design course at the University of California, Los Angeles.

BeatBattle 5 Underwater

On May 1, BeatBattle 5 launched together with our website's rejuvenation and the introduction of an all new magazine section. The theme could not have been more appropriate to accompany the immersive articles.

BeatBattle 5's theme is: Underwater!


BeatBattle 5 starts May 1st

Cancel your next month's appointments! BeatBattle 5 starts on May 1st.

New rules

Renoise songs with vocals and live instruments are few and far between. That makes us a bit sad. We allow you to use VSTs and the External Audio Recorder, one of Renoise 1.8's main new features. Mind you, we will only accept stand-alone XRNS files. VSTs must be rendered down.


You have one month to create a song that fits the given theme. We will announce the theme when the compo starts, on May 1st.
