Pattern Editor

Clear Track

A simple script which adds four functions to Renoise that delete everything in a track, or column below, or above the cursor when invoked.

After installing, these four functions can be bound to a shortcut in the preferences under "Pattern Editor > Track Operations" and "Pattern Editor > Column Operations"


Allows for transposing notes within a scale or key.

I hope you enjoy this tool! Most of the code is taken from Note Editor (v.voois) and Scale Finder (Cly/Suva).


Transposer is a pattern editor that you can easily switch in and out of (assign it to a hotkey for easy access). When open, the following keys do the following to the editing pattern:

Escape: Exit transposer

Arrow keys: Move the cursor up / down the pattern, left and right moves column by column and flows over into the next track.

Note Editor

Allow literal text input of note column content on the current cursor position. Dialog does nothing, except catching the keys and routing them to the pattern editor. The tool also supports fast navigation options. You need to focus upon the dialog for this to work though.

Drum Processor

Glitch like pattern event processor.

Impulse Octave

This adds ten keybinds, one per octave, which allow one to directly edit the octave of notes under the cursor. It also takes into account the current edit step. The purpose is to emulate direct access to an octave column like we have in scream/schism/impulsetracker. I know many of us IT/ST fans out there have been somewhat lost without this capability :)

Dec-Hex Converter

This is a very simple hexadecimal-decimal converter to rapidly convert between these two number bases which are frequently used in Renoise.

Set selected track shortcuts

Adds MIDI/PC keyboard shortcuts to select tracks directly. Both types of mapping are filed under Pattern Editor:Track:Select Track #...

Module Splitter

This tool splits old style Modules into a separate Track for each Instrument.
Ideal for converting retro module formats (mutiple instruments / track) layouts into a more usable (single instrument / track) layout for further editing in Renoise.
The conversion process is a single pass process that will split the entire Module into separate instrument tracks, labelling each one with the original instrument name.
Optional Note-off commands can get automatically inserted to keep the module sounding just like the original. Ghost Notes (notes with no instrument number) are also supported.

Pattern Split Plus

This is a more flexible pattern split tool that will split the currently selected pattern into a specified number of sub-patterns of equal size.

For example, if you are editing a pattern 128 lines long, and you want to split into 4 patterns 32 lines long, this tool will accomplish that. It also takes automation into account.

Scale Finder

Adds "Scale finder" tool into the Tools menu. Lets user insert chords based on a selected scale to the pattern editor.

To preview the chord, keep mouse button pressed on the selected chord.
