Easily turn any VST into an XI instrument with Renoise Tool

Post by Carbonthief » Sat Jun 08, 2013 12:24 pm

Newbie here to the forums (hello everyone, love your work nightradio). I ran across a tool today that converts xrns to xm or mod. First thought, holy crap that's an awesome way to make an XI for Sunvox! So for those of you with Renoise, here's what you do:

1. Get a VST instrument you like and get a patch you like on it. Synth, drum synth, piano, whatever. Or any sample instrument you already have and like. It can be any instrument at all.
2. Use Renoise's plugin grabber to convert it into a xrns instrument and save the song.
3. Use this http://www.renoise.com/tools/xrns2xmod and/or this http://xrns2xmod.codeplex.com/ to convert the song into an xm or mod file.
4. Open the xm or mod file in another tracker, I use MilkyTracker.
5. Save the instrument, it should save as an .xi
6. You can now use the .xi in Sunvox!

This is cool!
But actually you can skip the 4th step, because SunVox can load XM/MOD files directly :)
