Jumbo and Jumbo-Mini Impulse Tracker Font for Renoise

Jumbo and Jumbo-Mini Impulse Tracker Font for Renoise

UPDATE: These will also work in Redux if you rename one to PatternFont.ttf and overwrite the font in the Redux folder. I should simply make a compatible .ttf from scratch, but this works for now. Tested in Windows.

For quite a while I was running Impulse Tracker and Schism Tracker on a 28" 1920x1200 screen. Both apps run natively at 640x400 which gave me a nice fullscreen experience with no aliasing or anti-aliasing. Every pixel was represented cleanly at 3:1. I've created a Renoise pattern font based on the default ST/IT pattern font to recreate this experience. I find this jumbo size helps maintain the focus on the pattern data, and lends to thinking about sequencing on a more microscopic level. I simply edited an existing font with FontForge and overwrote the necessary characters. This font would be relatively useless for any purpose aside from Renoise, as it only contains the relevant subset of characters.

To use it, find the fonts directory in the Renoise application directory, and save over one of the PatternFontSIZE.fon files, restart Renoise, and select it in the preferences.

UPDATE: I've also created a new Jumbo-Mini font for screens that are less gigantic; 1366x768, etc. It has been added to the downloads below.
