Title: s3m composers
Post by: Louigi Verona on July 02, 2008, 10:34:01
I wonder if anyone in the world still writes s3m music with Scream Tracker 3.

If you had a special device which would show the amount of ppl using this or that software, would Scream Tracker 3 user number be zero?

I am sure FT2 is still used, at least for demo making and games. But I like Scream Tracker 3 better, though I've never done a good tune with it.

I think most ST3 users moved on to IT, but I know at least one guy on #MilkyTracker who still uses ST3. Well, that might not be the case anymore since we told him about Schism Tracker. ;) He does have an old comp though, so he might not have given up ST3 entirely.

ST3 has one attractive, unique quality though which I haven't seen in other publicly released trackers and that's the ability to write both AdLib and sample based modules. I'm thinking of really tapping this at some point and making some hybrid S3Ms which use both samples and FM synthesis. I made some tests already though, and it sounds awesome with a GUS taking care of the samples and an SB handling the FM with the OPL.

Schism (and maybe Impulse) Tracker can save S3M files. Just remember to use 8-bit samples, because that's all Scream Tracker can use.
