With over four months of exhaustive testing behind it, Renoise 2.0 incorporates a massive engine overhaul, hundreds of improvements, and rock solid stability. A complete overview of all the new features can be found here.
The biggest new features are:
- Automatic Plug-in Delay Compensation, which allows you to sync external equipment as well.
- A new timing model that separates tempo and resolution.

Renoise 2.0 is a complete music production environment with support for FX and instrument plug-ins, automatic plug-in delay compensation, multi-core load balancing, MIDI i/o, audio recording, flexible audio output, parameter automation, and much more.
Renoise is a mod tracker. If you've never used a tracker before, don't be put off by the machine-code-like appearance of the main editing screen. Ultimately, it's just a display of simple note and effects information that is easily understood and, for the proficient user, makes the creation of music far quicker than is possible in traditional sequencers.
Why spend hours cobbling beats together with a mouse when you can do it in seconds with a few keystrokes? Whether you're an audio veteran or just starting out, Renoise is the perfect complement for anyone looking for something new.
With Renoise 2.0 a generation of old-school trackers and contemporary musicians looking for something "different" have reason to celebrate.
