Fully tooled-up to compete in Feature Wars, the Renaissance's armoury is stocked with tracks and up to sequences, each up to bars long.

After allocating several instruments to tracks and recording some pad hits, you're ready for the next step: Contrary to the structure of most DAWs and similar software, track and instrument pairings are unique to each sequence.

Ditto for Track Mute, with which you can mute tracks individually or in groups you've quickly defined.

Usefully, mute status is remembered from sequence to sequence, and this alone can be an inspiration-booster for song composition. Specify the necessary resolution, then hit the pad you want to mute, trusting that it will occur exactly on the beat you wanted. Colour highlights the playing sequence or illustrates velocity values or mute status, but it never feels integral to operations. If the light show is understated, at least the pads' velocity and aftertouch are as playable as ever, once you set the sensitivity to suit your finger strength.
