General information

  • From version 3.1, Renoise only is available as 64-bit version. A special bridging technology still makes it possible to load 32-bit plugins, at the cost of some additional processing power. Bridged plugins are denoted with an arrow icon.
  • Renoise's minimum window size is 990 x 550 pixels. The window can be stretched across multiple screens. On screens with a height lower than 700 pixels, either the top or bottom panel will be collapsed.
  • To benefit from ASIO in the full version on Windows, your soundcard and system have to be compatible. If your soundcard has no native ASIO drivers, you can try ASIO4ALL.
  • Renoise 1.8+ requires SSE. If you have an AMD CPU, find out if SSE is disabled and switch it back on with H.Oda's WCPUID/XPUID. You can also try A4SSE.
