Ever since our Linux users got a 64-bit version with Renoise 2.5, we've had a lot of requests for 64-bit support on all three platforms, and now it's ready. Running the 64-bit version, the memory-hungry among you can now take full advantage of the available resources in your machine, allowing you to break the 4 GB barrier.
Save this file as renoise.desktop then open a terminal and access root privileges. Copy the renoise.desktop file into the xsessions directory (usually located in /usr/share/xsessions/). Now when you log into your machine you'll be able to change the session to 'Renoise' and run it stand-alone.

What is Cyclone?Sonic Charge Cyclone is a free software emulation of the Yamaha TX16W sampler from 1988. It was written to celebrate that 20 years have passed since the first release of Typhoon for TX16W. Typhoon is an alternative operating system for the TX16W and offers lots of improvements over the original Yamaha operating system. Typhoon was developed by Magnus Lidström who later formed Sonic Charge. The last version of Typhoon is the free Typhoon 2000 and this is the version that runs in Cyclone.How does it work?Cyclone is a true hardware emulator. It simulates all the important circuits of the Yamaha TX16W, including the main 68000 CPU, the DSP circuits, the DACs, the ADC and the floppy drive. Much effort has been made to create authentic simulations of all sound generating circuits. You can expect Cyclone to sound 99.9% identical to a real hardware TX16W and it runs the exact same software as a real hardware TX16W.Where do I find sounds?Except for the demo sounds on the Typhoon disk we have chosen not to distribute any sounds with the Cyclone installation. You should be able to find links to sound archives in other posts on this forum.How do I load sounds?Unless the sounds that you have found are in .fxb or .aupreset format you need to load them manually from disk image files.Follow these steps to load disk images that contain Typhoon sounds:Click the drive to select an .img file. (This does not load anything. It just inserts the virtual disk into the virtual drive.) [System Setup] [Utility]  or [+1] until you get to [Load *] [>] to [Go] and [Enter] Wait and follow any instructions on the display. Click [Performance Select], [Voice Edit] or [Wave Edit] and [+1]/[-1] to browse the sounds.Use the same steps for loading Yamaha disks except that you should choose [8.Import] instead of [7.Load *].Notice that some disk images do not have Performances. Some don't even have Voices, just Waves. Furthermore, [Load *] and [Import] do not automatically clear the memory before loading the new sounds. To empty the TX16W entirely, use [System Setup] [Utility] [4.Items] [Delete] [2=All] [Go] or simply click the power button to reboot the TX16W.I have a zip file containing TX16W files, how can I load them?Typhoon cannot access files on your computer directly. You need to create a disk image with the files you want to load. Here is one way:Unzip the .zip if necessary. Go to If there are already files in the box on the page, click remove all. Drag and drop the files you want to load to the big box page on the page. Click the smaller box at the top to enter a name for the floppy. Click bake .img file to bake and download the disk image file.In OS X it is also possible to mount .img files directly in Finder by simply double-clicking them.Why is this so complicated?Remember that we are emulating a piece of music machinery from 1988 that runs an operating system that was written between 1991 and 1993 (with some final changes in 1999). All the restrictions of the original machine are there and the software (Typhoon 2000) has not been modified in any way to benefit from almost 20 years of technology advances. Regard Cyclone as a time travel portal to an era from the past. An era of monster dinosaur samplers.Why is loading so slow?The emulated floppy drive is "infinitely" fast, but the emulated 68000 CPU (that runs Typhoon) is not. It runs at a fixed rate of 8Mhz to ensure stability and correct audio. The downside to this is that it restricts the transfer rate from the floppy drive too. Notice that you can save the entire state of the machine including all sounds currently in memory to .fxb or .aupreset files. These files load "infinitely" fast.Can the software be improved?It depends on what sort of improvements we are talking about. Typhoon 2000 is the last version of Typhoon and in practice it can not be updated. The last time it was compiled was in 1999, using a home made build environment on a Mac that was already old at the time. Recreating this build environment on a modern machine would be a huge, if not impossible task. The emulator (Cyclone) on the other hand can of course be updated.Can I use the computer keyboard?Yes. In most hosts you can use the numerical keys, enter, -, cursor up / down (for +1 / -1), cursor left, right and F1 to F8 (for the function buttons beneath the display). Sometimes you need to click the plug-in window to activate it before the keys work.Can it sample?Yes, provided that your DAW can route audio to an instrument plug-in. The sampling quality is very close to an original TX16W. Don't forget to turn up the input gain knob on the front panel.What does the black button next to Voice Edit do?This button says Filter Edit on a real TX16W, but it does not serve any purpose in Typhoon.Is there a standalone version?Not with this release, sorry. Only VST (and AU on Mac). But I can recommend VST Host for PC ( ) and VSTLord for Mac ( ).Can it run original Yamaha OS?Sorry, no. The emulator is complete enough to run Typhoon 2000 only. Running the original Yamaha OS would require including ROM that is copyrighted. Typhoon includes an import function that can load original Yamaha sound disks.So, how do I use this thing, really?The place to go for answers is the original Typhoon user guide and the Typhoon 2000 update addendum. If these documents do not help, feel free to post your question here on the forum.Borialis 2013-12-31T03:56:33ZWow!

Perhaps it is not even possible. Will check into this when I have some more time. I know how to do it in Live and Logic.It is actually possible to configure Cyclone to show up as an effect instead. You just need to put a special config file next to the DLL. That would enable sampling for sure, but I am not sure how useful it is to have Cyclone as an effect in Cubase.Borialis 2013-12-31T04:25:39ZCertainly welcome! it made the TX16W, a whole new machine back then. Sounded great!I'm using Cubase 7.5 on Mac OS 10.8.4.Making it also an effect could definitely work. (receives input from sends) Especially if it still receives midi input of course.I have a few things I'm going to try. I'll let you know how it goes. ;)One is a way to side-chain some stubborn compressors with quad inputs etc.I haven't done that trick in a while, mostly because I use Cubase side-chain friendly plugs, but I'll try a few thingsto see if I can get to Cyclone's audio input. Markos Polydorou 2013-12-31T06:05:37ZHey Magnus!Thanks for the free download.

All good.Happy New Year!JackBorialis 2013-12-31T08:44:18ZLeft Cubase and had a total out of body, time traveling experience, in Logic. :D Works fine there because the AU plugin could side chain a bus, hardware i/o, etc.All you have to do is put the side chain on the VST and the next version will be perfect to sample within Cubase. :DThat's been my main DAW, even before I purchased the TX16W, so I'd love to see that, hopefully, get sorted out if possible.Man, I forgot how engrossed you can get Sampling, setting up Groups and The Performances in this thing. LOLTricky, but once you start back at it, it's like old hat for the most part. Amazed how it sounds. Almost IDENTICAL to the unit. That really shocked me. True hardware grit all the way! Kudos!Well old friend, I'm off to mess around with Cyclone (in Logic) some more before bed and hope to really get productive with it in Cubase, sometime soon maybe? ;)Thanks Magnus, and congratulations on Sonic Charge as well!

I know it is a tad bit much to ask for, but hope never dies. :DAlthough nothing actually prevents virtual machines from running in RE, the SDK has other restrictions that would make things problematic. E.g. it would not be possible to use external floppy images. In theory we could convert those to the rack extension patch format. But then there is also the issue of the GUI, e.g. the operating system (Typhoon) generates custom characters for the 80x2 LCD display. Also, we only have a few fixed fonts to choose from so the display wouldn't look anything like a real TX. I am afraid that doing a full RE port would require a lot of work and would not end up being cool enough anyhow.- Johan Brodd wrote:There is a bug you might wanna dive into: When saving a project in FL Studio the audio stutters like crazy, even if I have low latency on.Ah, I can see why that happens. Saving the state of Cyclone requires the virtual machine to halt until the entire machine, incl. CPU state, 6MB wave memory etc has been frozen into a persistent binary format. While this is happening I cannot allow the machine to run or the saved state could be corrupt (this is called a "race condition" in computer terms). For this particular product I could not find any other solution but to halt the audio thread during this operation.I'll have a look if it is possible to speed up the "freezing" process so that the halt will be short enough not to interrupt audio. Might be.Magnus Lidström 2014-01-01T12:38:46Z- Borialis wrote:Making it also an effect could definitely work.

Is this due to the hardware emulation ? or it is something that can be reduced or nulled ?That is correct. For the operating system to receive MIDI properly without data loss and with sort of consistent timing, I am simulating a classic serial MIDI port with 31250 bps. This means it takes a few ms just for the MIDI data to get transmitted (and the more simultaneous notes and CC messages, the slower). Also, Typhoon requires a little processor time to trigger the notes, but I believe the MIDI transfer rate is the main problem.Which host are you using?bobby 2014-01-02T21:43:50ZHi- Thanks for this! I have been using Typhoon since original, and my TX gets used a bit. I never thought this would become reality :) I have a Korg Monopoly voice to share, in FXB format, saved from Cyclone.

Could it be some strange mixup between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions? When you install Cyclone you get to choose whether to install 32-bit, 64-bit or both and also select paths. What did you choose? Judging from your text it sounds like you are running a 64-bit operating system. Have you tried running Cubase in 64-bit mode?Johan Brodd 2014-01-05T13:10:55ZWould it be too much to ask for keyboard shortcuts to speed up the workflow?Magnus Lidström 2014-01-06T03:29:52Z- Johan Brodd wrote:Would it be too much to ask for keyboard shortcuts to speed up the workflow?We have included keyboard shortcuts for all the buttons on the panel. (See -cyclone-faq/) . Unfortunately I know there are some PC hosts that do not forward key presses to plug-ins. I am not sure if there is a foolproof solution. Which host are you using?manuel lopez 2014-01-06T19:54:56Zthanks for this great xmas/newyears present. a real blast from the past.....Jeremiah Leigh 2014-01-06T20:42:23Zholeee effing shit. thank you for the labor of love!!Jonah Sprout 2014-01-07T23:15:58Zhaha, you can just crank the mic gain, sample it and loop it!some questions:how can i bake a blank floppy to save my samples onto? "resampling" in the documentation in this case just means changing the sample rate, not internally sampling itself, right? i have to load 2 cyclones to do that. (filters sound cool stacked) :)this SOS article about typhoon Magnus Lidström 2014-01-08T12:28:44Z- jonah wrote:how can i bake a blank floppy to save my samples onto? Just bake an empty floppy (no files). When you mount it into Cyclone you can save to it just like you would with a real floppy. Save a copy of the empty floppy for future use.- jonah wrote:"resampling" in the documentation in this case just means changing the sample rate, not internally sampling itself, right? i have to load 2 cyclones to do that. (filters sound cool stacked) :)Yeah, sorry, only sample rate conversion. The TX16W cannot sample its own output. The CPU is actually 100% busy during sampling.But at least it's free to create more Cyclones. In the 90's I had to buy another TX16W to do tricks like that. :)Johan Brodd 2014-01-08T14:16:32ZWhy haven't you released Cyclone FX, a plugin that plays the incoming audio as if it where sampled on the TX16W?Magnus Lidström 2014-01-08T14:55:35Z- Johan Brodd wrote:Why haven't you released Cyclone FX, a plugin that plays the incoming audio as if it where sampled on the TX16W?That's a neat idea. I think much of the character comes from the interesting interpolation technique, but I guess one could design an fx plug-in so that you could sample at any arbitrary rate (not just 16, 25, 33, 50) and use the emulated interpolation for the output.I might just do it, who knows. :) But not until Synplant 2 is done. Nothing else now. :)Technical rambling: TX16W has a fixed 400khz output sample rate and linear interpolation for pitching whole octaves only. It then holds samples for exact pitch within octaves (essentially changing the length of individual sample points). The output filters are pretty sloppy with only 24dB per octave (18dB for the individual outputs). Sampling filters are much more impressive with eight order Chebychev design. Also, the main output DACs are not linear but use a floating point 16-bit resolution (the individual output DAC is on the other hand 12-bit linear).Magnus Lidström 2014-01-08T15:00:40Z(Cyclone FX sounds a bit like this idea: . Haven't tried it to be honest, but it looks really cool.)Shuriken 2014-01-08T21:01:33ZHello,First of all, I would like to thank the developer for putting time and effort into developing this plug-in.I've stumbled upon it today and after spending some time I haven't managed to make it work for me yet,Basicaly, I want to sample my own sounds into it (or load them somehow?) and then trigger them via external MIDI controller. I was trying to sample something with Cyclone in both FL Studio and Ableton Live, but without luck.Any help?Page 1 of 2nextYou need to be signed in to post a reply 2b1af7f3a8
