This tune is an experiment in what I call "Renoise Minimalism"


On this tune the speed settings are "1" with only "32" BPM's! I created, and used, only the five basic wave-curves - noise, sinus, triangle, pulse and saw.

All of them - including the noise-wave - are 0.020 seconds long.

I used the noise and saw sample once, the pulse and sinus sample twice.

One unlooped sinus sample as the "Bassdrum"" and the Noise sample as the "snare". The rest are looped and used as lead, bass and appreggio instrumentation.


The methods I used in this tune are fairly unorthodox. The really special treat with this tune is that I use the apreggio to "play notes", I sometimes skip a note or two and instead replace it with an apreggio value...

Also, With clever use of the volume and panning envelopes, I have been able to create some very nice effects, as well as reducing the ammount of "necessary" Renoise DSP's :)

I also use the Chorus DSP as an echo which gives a very nice effect. There are quite a few (not too many though) DSP's used, but they are being turned on and off as they are needed and are sometimes "replaced" with instrument envelopes and good old fashion oldschool volume and panning values... ;)

All in all;

It is not a very remarkable tune, either in musical talent or musically technical. But it is fairly remarkable when you dig deep and look at the unusual approaches to module creation in Renoise.

I hope you like it!

Torn on this one. Aside from sine, any chip could easily reproduce this sound. It's a good tribute and very respectful -- as I respect you.

Unfortunately, many musicians that enter the wildcard field are looking for "wankery."

Wankery (n): Pushing the format to the limits.

Thank you all for the very nice comments, I REALLY appreciate it! Nice comments and constructive critisim really makes my day! (or in this case, night!)

@ b00daw = I wasn't really aware of that, but I assure you, I have used fairly basic (althoug UNUSUAL) methods for this tune.

The "wankery" part would be me using the Chorus as a "fake" echo... Among some other things ;)

Thanks for pointing this out to me and for other people!

Cheers everyone!

Seems like I am about to enter more comments than all the others, but what-the-hey!

I repeat what is said above, if anyone wish to look at the module construction, just give me a mail and I will send you the XRNS... Note that you need Renoise 1.9.1...
