Renoise is a professional digital music creation package.
As it is based on mod trackers, it will display the music in grids called patterns. These patterns are similar to sheet music, but use an alphanumerical notation, not a musical notation.
The program has a neat interface that will offer you all the information about the tracks you have saved in your hard disks. It will also give you access to every tool in the program that you can use to edit a track. Finally, Renoise includes a Media Player that will let you hear your work while you are modifying it, or after you have concluded. While playing the song, the program will show you information according to the options you have selected. "Track Scopes" will show you the waves generated by each one of the synthesized instruments, "Master Scopes" will show you the general wave for the left and right channels, and "Master Spectrum" will display the total spectrum achieved. You can add instruments to your song, or delete some, modify the beats, and the volume of each instrument, and input parts through the keyboard.
The trial version of Renoise will not render songs to .wav or selections to samples. As Rewire Master, only the first stereo input bus will be available. As ReWire Slave, Renoise will occasionally generate a small subtle hiss.
- It has all the tools that you expect to find in a professional editor.
