The reason for the crackle is the Renoise builtin Maximizer that I use as hard limiter on the master track to keep the volume exactly below -3db.
It crackles when it kicks in too hard, no matter how attack and release are set.
Surprisingly I found no replacement for it, all Renoise builtin + LADSPA compressors cause crackle, and the u-he Presswerk compressor and limiter does not hard limit, it leaves some peaks through.
I kind of worked around it by compressing the track with the Molam music a little bit to not kick the Maximizer too hard, at least the crackle is almost gone now, maybe it's still audible here and there, but not too much.
I need to research how to hard limit on the master bus for my next songs...
I uploaded the latest version of the song to Soundcloud, and I think I'll leave it like this.
Thanks a loooooot to all of you for helping with the mastering process.

Hehe, yea it's rather monotonous, mostly on purpose though.
