Studio sessions #2 Decorating a track using Renoise and Korg Wavestate

Hi peepz.

Last week I published my first studio session video on Youtube. Today I have a new one.

I’m still working on the same remix. Adding decorating sounds. That’s like coloring the last touches on a drawing.

When you play a track you’re working on and listen to the separate sounds and you discover gaps where it’s possible to add some contra, or background sounds. You can fill them with pads, arpeggio’s, plucks, keys, voices, or fx. In this session I take you through recording decorative sounds from the KORG Wavestate synthesizer.

First Studio Sessions video

Hi peepz, Here is the first video in a range of take outs I record on a particular subject that comes by in the studio.

I’m still working to get the video setup better. A second cam, better light and screen sharing.

In this session I’m working in Renoise on one of the three current remix projects. One thing I learned while producing is organize.

Chaos is fun. Chaos is good! Chaos is the ultimate playground.

Organizing things can bring your tracks to the next level.

When I’m working on a track, every single sound has it’s own channel. De kick, closed hihat, open hihat, toms etc. But also the synths. Everything. And even more better, group them to busses. In this remix project I came across a thing that is coming by more. Stems that are merged together in one wave file. That makes the sounds in it more depending on each other. And by that reason it is limiting the possibilities to go crazy with them separated. So the sounds can play together in the spectrum. In this video I take you through the process of splitting various sounds in one stem in Renoise.

The video is as is. Like I said, improvement is on it’s way. Enjoy!

Renoise to Reaper template

The question of how to run an instance of Renoise multi track in Cockos Reaper, with or without the help of Rewire, arises frequently.

In 2011 I wrote a template to do this with a simple mouse click. By default it has a one-to-one routing for audio and midi. Eight tracks from Renoise end up on eight tracks in Reaper. In addition, there are four send buses from Renoise that connect to four Reaper tracks. The eight main tracks are grouped in Reaper and also have a group level. All functionality on the tracks such as Mute, Record Arm and Solo is implemented.

The template is an excellent basis for quickly getting started with this combination of tools. It can be adapted to your own wishes.

t has been available for download in the Reaper Stash since 2011 and has been downloaded hundreds of times. Because the demand for it is still current (as it turned out today) I have now also included it on this website under the menu Resources.
