Quick Vol AHDSR

An alternative mini GUI to access an Attack,Hold,Decay,Sustain,Release (AHDSR) envelope in the renoise sampler.

What it`s for

Collapse/Expand All Tracks in Group

This tool implements the missing collapse/expand toggle for all tracks in a group, to be assigned to a keyboard shortcut: Sample Editor --> Group --> Collapse/Expand All Tracks in Group; Mixer --> Track --> Collapse/Expand All Tracks in Group.

Update 0.2: Compatible with Renoise 3.1

Note Properties

This tool gives you extra controls to manipulate the currently selected note and its properties. It is useful for visual feedback and fine adjustments of values via the mouse.

The renoise keyboard shortcut to use the tool is:

Tools: ~Note Properties

This can be assigned via the renoise preferences, found in the renoise edit menu.


Mutable-Instruments "Anushri" synthesizer has a nice built-in drum pattern generator ("generative sequencer").
I did steal the essential code and made a renoise tool out of it.

There is a lengthy description of how it works at:

Sync All Notes In Group

This is a tool to make doubling/tripling.. tracks in your song a lot easier, allowing a quick workflow for layering sounds. It manages multiple tracks within a group to keep the same notes copied across them all. Each track retains it`s own instrument and you can add different fx and automation to each instrument layer.

Track Comments

Add comments to individual tracks. All data will be saved in the global song comments using a special syntax.

Right clicking on a track --> Track --> Track Comments will open a popup comment editor.

Update 0.7: Fixed an issue with the Tool Updater

Pianolol Melody Editor

This tool allows you to edit the notes in a selection in the pattern editor.

You can not set new note events in the melody editor, only edit the pitch
of existing notes. That means, that the rhythm of your melody has to
be set first. Then you select the notes, and open the "Melody Editor"
to edit the pitch of the notes. The editor comes with many built in scales
that make it easy to stay in a scale.

Change Block Loop Size

Shortcuts for doubling and halving the block loop size.

Broaden Selection

This tool gives you six easy to use extra shortcuts. The first three (labeled 'Broaden Selection') give possibility to make a selection in pattern editor song-wide (or just to the left, or to the right) instantly. The second three (aptly labeled 'Note Solo') make that whole selection silent by placing note-offs, except for the current track. Effectively a solo that stays.
