Renoise is a complete, expandable Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) with a
refreshing twist. It lets you record, compose, edit, process and render
production-quality audio using a tracker-based approach. It features a wide
range of built-in audio processors, alongside support for all commonly used
virtual instrument and effect plug-in formats.

In a tracker, the music runs from top to bottom in an easily understood
grid known as a pattern. Several patterns arranged in a certain order make up
a song. Editing in a pattern grid lends itself very well to a fast and
immediate keyboard-based workflow. With Renoise you can produce loops, beats,
chords and melodies efficiently step-by-step.

Renoise is multi-platform; runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.
