If you like composing in Renoise, but you want to save modules that are a little less DAW-like, you might want to consider our wonderful new tool by aldroid (which would be me).
At least one other tool exists that exports Renoise modules to FastTracker XM format, but I couldn’t figure out how to get it to compile on a mac so I wrote my own. It’s extremely limited, it needs a lot of tweaking after export, but if you don’t have any other alternatives it’s better than a poke in the face.
Stuff it currently does:
- Exports patterns
- Exports volume levels
- Exports single-sample instruments correctly, and multi-sample instruments badly
Stuff that’s currently broken:
- Tuning. Oh boy I made a mess of that
- Effect columns. Nope, couldn’t be bothered
- Error reporting. Sometimes something’s just broken
This exporter is provided under the MIT license. It’s effectively abandonware, I have better things to do than maintain this little plugin, but I would gladly accept pull requests from anyone that wants to fix any of the million things that are wrong, to make effects work nicely or tune the instruments in a sensible way.
Interested? Try it!
