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).

Get it here!  (And fix our source code, if you’re that way inclined)

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!
