  3. 3 changes (moves / removals)

New functions

  • Added Linux Support

Upgraded functionality

  • Added a “Draw Mode” and to the Sample Editor to draw new tiny waves by hand, or to retouch existing waveforms. A simple “Create Sample” option was added as well, so that you can create new hand-drawn samples.
  • Added “Clear Muted Tracks/Columns” actions (shortcuts + context menu entries) to the Pattern Editor and Sequencer. This can be especially useful as an “arranging” aid in the Sequencer.
  • Added a “Record Dry” switch to the Sample Editors recorder, which allows you to preview the to be recorded signal wet (depending on the selected Track FX), but enforces to record the dry signal (without FX).
  • Added an info button to VST / LADSPA FX, which will show you some details about the loaded plugin


  • Solved CPU detection with some newer AMD multicore processors. Renoise could sometimes recognize those as single core CPUs with some energy saving settings enabled
  • The 2nd Pattern Editor “Delete” keyboard shortcut has not removed FX values, but just Notes
  • VST FX On/Off automation could cause unwanted delays when rendering songs to disk
  • Very high pitched backwards or ping-pong sample loops sometimes didn’t played back correctly
  • The Mac “Jack-insert” VST should now work properly in Renoise
  • OSX Leopard: Hitting/releasing the Command or Control key while Caps-Lock was on could produce unwanted Note-Off events
  • VST plugins which are listed as FX but are VST instruments, will now automatically be “fixed” (listed correctly) after you’ve instantiated them and restarted Renoise
  • Import of Impulse Tracker songs skipped IT Note-off/Note-cut pattern events
  • Import of Fasttracker XM songs could lead to invalid sequencer loop ranges
  • Instrument envelopes in Fasttracker XM and Impulse Tracker IT songs are now correctly imported


  • Easier Drag and Drop in the Pattern Editor: You no longer have to hold the mouse button down a bit, before you can drag a selection in the Pattern Editor to move or copy it.
  • Rescanning the folder & file contents in the Disk Browser should be a bit faster now
  • Zoombar in sample editor has been moved underneath the sample-view frame to fit to the current view.
