ReSynth is a cross-platform native pseudo-realtime synthesizer tool for Renoise.

ReSynth4 contains the following features:

  • Four oscillator slots
  • Independant oscillator controls for:
    • Transpose
    • Fine tuning
    • Volume
    • Panning
  • Selectable oscillator types:
    • Virtual analog
      • Waveform selector - sin / tri / saw / pulse wave
      • Pulse width control
      • Pulse width modulation with speed and depth controls
    • FM Synthesis
      • Three operators in series
      • Frequency multiplier per operator
      • 3 point envelope per operator
    • User waveform
      • Load in your own samples and use the simple common operator controls (transpose, fine tune etc.)
      • Selectable loop toggle
    • SuperSaw (oscillator 1 only)
      • Saw wave count (from 1 to 7)
      • Supersaw detuning
      • Supersaw wave width
  • Much improved oscillator quality (44khz, 32bit from 33khz, 8bit)
  • AHDBDSR volume envelope
  • Volume LFO (tremelo) rate and depth controls
  • AHDBDSR filter cutoff envelope
  • Filter type selector
  • Filter resonance control
  • Filter cutoff lfo rate and depth controls
  • Filter resonance lfo rate and depth controls
  • Velocity to filter cutoff depth control
  • Programmable arpeggiator:
    • Variable sequence length (up to 16 steps)
    • Variable sequence speed (ticks per step)
    • Independant pitch per step
    • Steps can be retriggers (green) or legato (yellow).
    • Selected step is blue (dark or light respectively).
    • Independant assigns to volume/pitch envelopes and filter envelope
    • Steps will always affect the pitch

ReSynth supports real-time modification while playing:

  • Ensure the ReSynth window is open for the desired instrument
  • Playing live while modifying the ReSynth controls will not stop any currently played notes. This is with the exception of changing oscillator type (this will mute that oscillator until a note is retriggered).

User interface improvements:

  • Keyboard pass-through (the computer keyboard will continue to play notes while the ReSynth2 window has focus)
  • Vastly simplified patch management:
    • Users can treat ReSynth instruments as normal XRNI Renoise instruments
    • If the user does not have the ReSynth tool installed they will still be able to play the instrument
    • If the user has the ReSynth tool installed then they can quickly and simply continue editing the instrument from the current parameters
  • 'Insert new ReSynth instrument', 'Replace with ReSynth instrument' and 'Edit ReSynth instrument' menu entries in both the Main Menu 'Tools' menu and the Instrument Box context menu (under ReSynth sub-menu).
  • An additional Main Menu 'Tools' menu entry to open the wavetable waveforms folder with a file browser (Windows Explorer, Mac OS Finder etc.) to enable the user to populate the wavetable oscillators
  • If the sample editor window is visible, oscillator modifications will be displayed as they are performed

Note that ReSynth4 is not backwards compatible with earlier versions of ReSynth.

Finally, if you 'undo' a change within Renoise, please close the ReSynth2 dialog and reopen to resynchronize changes.
