Renoise updated to v2.7, Puremagnetik XRNI Essentials Volume 1 released

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on May 12, 2011 - comment 1 comment

Cross-platform music sequencer and audio processing application Renoise has been updated to version 2.7.

Renoise 2.7 (Sample Keyzone Editor)

Eight weeks of community driven testing finish today. We are proud to announce that Renoise 2.7 is stable and ready for production. Thanks once again to our users, the best in the world.

For the occasion we’ve teamed up with Puremagnetik.com to bring you “Puremagnetik XRNI Essentials Volume 1″ – a hand-picked selection from their catalog of professionally multi-sampled instruments. This sample pack is free for all registered users, new and old.

With over 500MB of sounds, producers can immediately jump into the latest sampling features of Renoise 2.7. From classic studio instruments like a Stratocaster and Mellotron to lo-fi digital chip sounds, “Puremagnetik XRNI Essentials Volume 1″ offers something for everyone. As an added bonus this collection includes a pristinely sampled and programmed Yamaha Conservatory Grand Piano. The package contains: Analog Synth Basses, Circuit Bent Drum Kits, Buchla Drum Kits, Mellotron Strings and Flutes, Glitch, Toy & Lo-Fi Sounds, Fender Rhodes Mark II, Model-C Clavinet, Electric Guitar, Upright Bass, Classic Analog Synths, Grand Piano, and more.

We’re also pleased to announce an upgrade to our XRNX site and a Tool Update Downloader which automatically updates installed tools. It’s so easy even your grandmother could do it. In fact, she’s learning Lua and scripting a new controller template for Duplex as you read this. But I digress…

Changes in Renoise v2.7

  • Renoise’s internal instruments have been re-engineered. The focal point is a new keyzone editor that supports overlapping, velocity, and key release mappings. The Sample Keyzones editor brings with it user interface refinements, improved drumkit generation, better tuning options, new sample properties, and loop modes. Live instrumentalists can also tap into new realtime rendering modes and MIDI input routing, making Renoise on a laptop a formidable replacement for your old sampler.
  • New Slice Markers push Renoise’s breakbeat insanity one step further. With the click of a button, your break is sliced and keymapped. Amens away! More than just a beatslicer, creatives will soon discover custom offsets and the power of aliases for controlling longer recordings like vocals and soundscapes.
  • The revamped Automation Editor now provides a zoomable overview of the entire song, as well as vastly improved envelope resolution. Navigating is smooth, dragging and drawing easier, so simple yet so .
  • Internal FX get an injection of winning with a new Comb Filter and a Multiband Send that lets you surgically redirect a single sound source to 3 send tracks. New draggable gain and frequency handles in the native EQs add flavour and finesse to the tools. Other changes include improvements to DSSI, MIDI optimizations, hardware-compatible solo mode, adjustable audio headroom, pre-count, ameliorations to the Lua API, and numerous other changes in every aspect of the app; no stone was left unturned in this release.
  • Full changelog with screenshots here.

Renoise has also announced it will be mentoring at Music Hack Day Berlin.

The event takes place on the weekend of May 28th in the MTV Network offices located at the Spree river. Erik, dblue and Taktik will be on site to discuss Renoise, the Lua API, drink beer, and give out high fives. Check our community forums in the upcoming days for more details.

Renoise

Multiplatform music sequencer and audio processing application Renoise was updated to version 2.7 beta.

The metronome swings back. Renoise 2.7 transitions from the developer-heavy focus of the previous release to more musical concerns such as Sampling, Instruments, Automation, and Native DSPs.

As part of a beta promotion, Renoise 2.7 is available at €40 for new users. We’re lowering the entry barrier to our beta cycle, known as the feature improvement phase before the final release. Already registered? Then why not bump your version for €32 in the Backstage?

Renoise

Multi-platform music production software Renoise was updated to version 2.6.1.

With Renoise you create loops, beats and melodies efficiently step-by-step. It’s a complete, expandable Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) with a refreshing twist. Renoise is affordable, yet no corners have been cut in regard to features.

Changes in Renoise v2.6.1

  • Autoseek with multiple note columns didn’t always work.
  • Renoise saved some 24-bit FLAC files wrong on Linux x64_64 – applies to 64-bit versions only.
  • Demo versions nag screen nagged demo version users way to early.
  • Mac OS X demo versions did not include the scripting API documentation and MIDI/OSC scripts.
  • A few other Lua API related fixes.

Renoise for Linux, Mac, and Windows is available to purchase for 58 EUR (excl. VAT).

Renoise

Renoise, the multi-platform digital audio workstation software, was updated to version 2.6.

It’s official. We are pleased to announce that Renoise 2.6 is ready for production. Over three months of community driven beta testing has put the software through the ringer. User feedback has resulted in our most innovative release to date. Rock solid stable, as usual.

Changes in Renoise v2.6

  • Script everything using a truly open API: Lua is a light-weight programming language, which together with the Renoise API allows you to build add-ons quickly and easily. Lua scripting, introduced as part of the beta cycle in July, has already resulted in a plethora of new tools, as well as native support for the following hardware: AlphaTrack, BCF-2000, BCR-2000, KONTROL49, FaderPort, microKONTROL, nanoKONTROL, Launchpad, Remote SL-MKII, Nocturn, Monome, Ohm64, iPad via TouchOSC.
  • Sample Autoseek: Samples have a new setting, “Autoseek”, which will, when enabled, make them behave like a traditional audio channel. You can start playing back the song at any position, and the sample will automatically seek to the current position in the song without having to be triggered.
  • Open Sound Control (OSC) Server Support.
  • Duplex – MIDI/OSC controller framework.
  • DSSI Support on Linux, 64-bit Linux Version.
  • Support for CAF, AIFC, SND and AU Files.
  • Linux & Mac OSX Performance Tweaks.
  • Minor usability and functionality refinements galore!
  • The full scoop, here: http://www.renoise.com/about/what-s-new-2-6/

Renoise is available to purchase for Linux, Mac, and Windows, priced at 58 EUR excl. VAT.
