By now most of you guys probably know about most sequencers. Programs like Logic, FL Studio, Ableton Live, Sonar, Pro Tools, Cubase, and Reason, but unfortunately most people don’t know about trackers. That is why I’m starting this post. Trackers offer a different layout than the other sequencers. Instead of doing everything from left to right they work up to down and instead of using a piano roll they use lanes of data. These little programs were popular in the 80s and are still used by some hard core fans. Renoise happens to be the best tracker that I know about. Having worked with logic 8 and Pro Tools, I can say that once you know the ropes of the program the tracker can be a lot faster for beat production. They are very streamline, take up less system resources. Try the download.
By the way, renoise works on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It cost around $75 for a full version and it can be installed on any number of computers as long as the owner of the license is the only user of the program.
I’m going to start posting as many resources as I can. I’ve got quite a few guides and whatnot.
Renoise is on ALL platforms. PC/MAC/LINUX
- Features ReWire and Jack support so it works great with reason or logic.
- VSTi, VSTfx, LADSPA and AudioUnits support.
- Tons of other features.. http://www.renoise.com/about/features/
I downloaded to give it a try, but there is def a learning curve. I am able to create bacic stuff but there are many function buttons I never touch.. Once a person got the hang of the kayboard functions (ctrl +) and musical scale I could see the potential Again I just hate reading instructions, so what I learned I got from u-tube
I have been playing with it quite a bit it seems like a good program,however i still hav to get used to the vertical scrolling, but thanks for getting me started anyway. Ill look for u around the forums
