and a repository, like cvs/svn/hg/git/... ?  :)

MilkyTracker Support / Re: Can't enter Arp effect on Ubuntu
« on: October 10, 2009, 09:54:44 »
Effect 0 is the default effect, because with parameter "00", it plays always the same note, which is a "no-effect" effect... If you want to see the 0, you have 2 options :
Go in config/layout and enable "Show zero effect".
Or simply change the parameter ;)

MilkyTracker Feature Requests / Re: Printing
« on: September 30, 2009, 22:48:57 »
Did you know that protracker (at least 2.3) on amiga had a printing function?
I remember using it, once... Only once!  ;D

MilkyTracker Support / Re: Samples automatically finetuned?
« on: August 30, 2009, 23:19:12 »
May I make a supposition?
8363Hz was the finest C that Paula could do.

The frequency of C is about 523.25Hz... Upper octaves are 1046.5, 2093, 4186, 8372Hz ...

So, if we have a sample consisting of 16 bytes, and we play it at 8372Hz, we ear a C.

Now, we have an Amiga's dsp called "Paula", able to replay that sample at some rates defined by the time between each byte (the period), and the time unit is "couples of CPU clock ticks". That dsp is clocked by a quartz at exaclty 7159090Hz (in the NTSC version). To rate at 8372Hz, we need to wait 7159090/8372=855.1 ticks between each byte. Once that number rounded to the unit (nearest even number is 856), the real rate played is :
7159090/856 = 8363Hz!

If trackers was born on a PAL amiga, we'd have chosen a period of 848 ticks, making a rate of 7093790/848=8365Hz... Instead, PAL amigas inherited the 856 period, and played a mistuned C at 8287Hz.

Unix permissions (especially the execute bit) don't exist on FAT32. So, that permissions are fixed at mount time, with mode=/user=/group= options. You may arrive on a system with automount, where the permissions are not sufficient. On that case, you still can copy milky in another location and chmod it as you need...
So, the reply is : you could have a problem, but there's an easy workaround ;)

a milkyplayer that preserves amiga left/right channels would be awesome!
It does! :)
In "Options" (not "Config"), choose Protracker. Channels are now balanced. You can adjust default panning in the same menu.
When you play notes directly on keyboard, you'll not hear channel panning, unless you disable "Jam channels" in config (I/O, top right).
Good tracking!

MilkyTracker Tracks & Songs / an old try
« on: February 11, 2009, 19:25:08 »
I made it one year ago. Who did never hear that old song?
Retracked in 2 hours. 5 samples drawn by hand, 0 effect, 6.3Kb.

The numpad instrument selector doesn't update the instrument editor with newly selected instrument, but with the old one :

1) Open Instrument editor (ctrl-i)
2) Click on instr 1 in the chooser
-> instr 1 is displayed in editor
3) Select instr 2 by pressing NUMPAD_0 and NUMPAD_2
-> instr 1 is displayed instead of 2
4) Select instr 3 by pressing NUMPAD_0 and NUMPAD_3
-> instr 2 is displayed instead of 3

Same bug in sample editor.

Bug Report Archive / [fixed] Jack output
« on: April 19, 2008, 09:46:41 »
Hey! Another killer feature! A Jack Output is available! Wasn't on Changelog? :)

Just a little bug: I get "jack_client_thread zombified - exiting from JACK" on startup, and playback blocks. Complied with "g++ (GCC) 4.2.3 (Debian 4.2.3-1)".

It seems to be working fine when adding "return 0;" at the end of jackProcess callback (src/milkyplay/drivers/jack/AudioDriver_JACK.cpp:67)

The method on video tutorial works great for me... Did you try to play your drawing with a lower note?
