  1. They’ve changes the pattern effects since the beta and it’s been hell adjusting to new ones for me. Maybe better for new users but for old ones it’s breaking the habit and muscle memory of many years.

  2. Renoise is fantastic!!! Been a user for some time, unlike anything else….2.8 is wow! Now if the would do max for renoise/ pd for renoise, or super collider for renoise…renoise would be the perfect workstation( well native realtime timestretching , then it would be perfect) I’ve made more tracks with renoise that any other software midi environment…you can’t go wrong with renoise! Dk
