Renoise 2.5 Goes Gold

Renoise 2.5

Another round of beta testing has passed, a brand new stable and rock solid Renoise is ready for production.

In case you missed it the first time around, new features in 2.5 include:

  • Pattern Matrix: A birds eye view and editor of the song
  • Cross Track Routing for “Meta Devices” and new devices like the “Signal Follower”, which allows you to sidechain other tracks parameters
  • Plugin Grabber: Render Plugin Instruments to Renoise Instruments, Samples
  • Vastly Improved MIDI Mapping
  • A Bunch of New Internal Effects
  • And much more...

A detailed description of what's new can be found on the Renoise 2.5 launch page.

We've also rewritten the user manual from scratch and published new video tutorial specifically geared towards using Renoise 2.5.

We'd like to thank the Renoise users for all your help durring the beta phase. It's you that makes Renoise the world class audio application and community that we are today.

Registered users can download their personal copies from the backstage. New users can download and try out the demo.

Oh, and one more thing. Let's celebrate!

UPDATE: 01/04/2010

A small maintenance update for Windows 7 was released: Renoise 2.5.1 fixes problems with UAC on Windows 7, with the latest security patches installed.

This update is only necessary if you got annoyed by "C:\ Location Not available. Access is denied" messages from Windows when running Renoise.

If you don't got those messages, you don't need to update from Renoise 2.5.0 final. Mac OSX and Linux builds only have been updated to set the version number to 2.5.1.
