The Renoise 3.0 beta-test has started, and the development team would like to invite anyone with a Renoise license to download the software and try out its new features.
With Renoise 3.0, a lot of what makes Renoise special in the first place - the tracker interface, the flexible effects and routing - has now been integrated into its built-in sampler. The user interface has been redesigned with a dedicated instrument section, allowing quick access to even the most deeply hidden feature. And it is possible to detach the instrument and stick it on a separate monitor, too.
If you are already comfortable using another DAW, but intrigued by Renoise, there is some good news too: the Renoise 3.0 sampler is being worked on as a standalone plugin – Redux – which you can then use in your DAW of choice. Any instrument created in Renoise will be fully compatible with Redux, and vice versa.
