Renoise 2.1 gives you ReWire, Jack Transport and Pattern Queuing

Renoise 2.1 Final has just been released. For this version we have made it easier to integrate Renoise with your studio. We also made live performing a lot more interesting.

The idea behind 2.1 is that until Renoise has features like a piano-roll, an arranger and audio file streaming, you should at least be able to use them through external means. That is why we have added routing features to connect Renoise to other audio applications. With ReWire on Windows and MacOSX, and the Jack Transport protocol on Linux, you can finally combine the best things about trackers and sequencers.

Renoise ReWired to Reaper

Performing live with Renoise is more flexible than ever. First of all, you can keep editing a pattern while the song continues to play. That makes it possible to do some last minute changes before playback actually reaches that pattern. Secondly, you will be able to queue patterns. When playback reaches the end of the pattern, it will ignore your pre-baked sequence and go to the blinking pattern instead. It's like going off-road: if your audience likes it, why not take the scenic route?

To top it off we threw in a couple of new devices. The ominously named Hydra Device multiplexes movements from one slider to a maximum of 9 outputs. Mythological experts know why 9 of them. The Key-Tracking Device modulates any parameter according to an incoming note pitch. Real nice for frequency dependent effects. And finally, the MIDI-Control Device is a pimped up replacement for the MIDI CC Device. You can now send and automate several non-CC parameters to MIDI Instruments, such as Pitchbend, Channel Pressure and Program Change.

I am happy now!)))) respect !!!!!! from Russia!)))))
Cheers! I am happy too :)
Very nice! Now you have the KeyTrack Device wouldn't it be simple to have it moniter volume and automate with respect to it? It would give a simple side-chaining device when attatched to say, compressor threshold or gain.
Yes, that's definitely something we keep in mind. It's a fair bit more difficult than the KeyTrack Device though. For example, we'd have to deal with delays from effects across tracks.
Okay. That's it. I am converted. I've just ditched all my other music software and I'm heading back into the lands of the tracker! Thanks very much to all involved! Renoise has come on in leaps and bounds!
