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!
