Renoise Redux is a sample-based instrument VST/AU, for Linux, Mac & Windows, that features a powerful built-in phrase sequencer.
Here’s the official video intro:
- Sequencer – The sequencer in Redux is closely integrated with the instrument, and used to create musical phrases. These phrases are controlled via notes and program-change events, and allow you to alter the playback in a variety of ways.
- Open-ended – Create sounds from scratch with the built-in sample recorder and draw tool. Or import existing files by simple drag and drop. Redux understands most common audio file-formats, including the .sfz multi-sample format.
- Tracker Notation – Redux has inherited and expanded upon a rich set of features from its bigger brother, Renoise, including techniques to trigger notes and control sample playback with surgical precision.
- Sample Modulation – Redux offers true per-note polyphonic modulation, which can be used to transform your material into anything from a short stab to a lush ambient soundscape.
- Dozens of DSP FX – With a large selection of DSP effects and a quasi-modular system that allows devices to modulate one another, the sound design possibilities are almost endless.
- Macro Controls – Redux features a straightforward automation system with eight globally accessible macro controls. Each of these macros can be connected to any number of parameters and functions under the hood.
- Keyboard Driven – A tracker typically make use of numerous keyboard shortcuts and commands. Redux features an innovative on-screen keyboard to help unlock these secrets and provide visual feedback.
- Waveform Editor – Use the waveform editor to adjust volume levels, cut leading or trailing silence, apply effects, chop samples into slices, and much more. Everything is saved along with the preset
- Cross-platform – Redux is available for Windows, OSX and Linux, in VST and AudioUnit formats. Your license does not restrict you to any particular platform and is fully portable.
Redux is available for US $65/58 Euro. A demo version is also available.
