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.

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

BeatBattle 5's theme is: Underwater!


Record dry, monitor wet

In this tutorial I will show you how the 'External Audio Recording & Line-in Device' can be used to monitor a wet signal while recording a dry input. For an overview or more general usage, check the Renoise Tutorials article on the External Audio Recoring and Line-in Device.


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.
