About: Renoise is a contemporary digital audio workstation (DAW) based upon the heritage and development of tracker software. Its primary use is the composition of music using samples (in WAV, AIFF, FLAC, Ogg, and MP3 format), and MIDI sequencing of VSTi soft synths.
Changes: With input from a very enthusiastic user community, two and a half months were spent on bug fixes and stability improvements for the Linux beta. The work has paid off and the Linux version is now officially 1.9.1 "GOLD" like it's OS X and Windows counterparts. Beside everything else you have on Windows and Mac, Linux specific features include: ALSA support (for Audio and MIDI), JACK Audio support (optional), LADSPA support (native Linux audio plugins), and VST support (for Linux NATIVE VSTs).
Caveat: This software is free as in beer, not free as in "libre", and is distributed under a shareware license. However, the demo is fully functional and Renoise's file format (XRNS) is XML. This allows human readable interactions and third party manipulation of the files, as seen in the XRNS Development and Tools forum. (http://www.renoise.com/board/index.php?showforum=26)
