MilkyTracker Community / play pattern backwards...
« on: October 09, 2010, 16:07:59 »

I once saw how backward playback is done using a combination of Dxx and (prob.) Bxx [or E6x]. But I cant find the song... and I dont remember either. Please help me out.


MilkyTracker Support / trouble getting jack to work...
« on: July 29, 2010, 11:14:23 »

i am running a ubuntu jaunty kernel with ubuntu packages and I can't get MT to use the Jack audio driver.
First I tried MT v0.90.80 and it said: "JACK: Can't load libjack (is it installed?)"
... although these files were present in /usr/lib/ :

# ls libj*



Next I compiled v0.90.85 from source (with and without patches, makes no difference). The select driver dialog now offers: alsa | sdl_audio.

I get the following errors when switching between alsa and sdl_audio with different buffer sizes:

# /usr/local/bin/milkytracker
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:874:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
E: socket-client.c: socket(): Address family not supported by protocol
SDL: Failed to open audio device! (buffer = 8192 bytes)..
SDL: Try setting "Force 2^n sizes" in the config menu and restarting.

edit: deleted the similar err. messages.

I wonder if jack support is present here?!


MilkyTracker Community / BPM 2 Detune {cents}
« on: July 16, 2008, 19:05:38 »
Hello everybody,

here is a gnumeric spreadsheet that calculates the cents needed to detune a drumloop to fit a specific tempo in BPM.
Hope this is of any use, I havent red all the forum and dont know about the various (windows) utilities out there.

MilkyTracker Community / How to start tabs in sync ??
« on: June 19, 2008, 13:14:39 »
It seems like a silly question, but I could not find out how to play back more than one module in sync with each other. Did I miss something?


Hello devels,

actually I feel a bit bad to have a feature request in my second thread here...

MT is becoming a major source of creativity for me and my workflow would be greatly enhanced if I had each track on its own output channel, let's say via jack (on linux or os x).

Last time this was requested in 2007... it may not be so difficult. Outputs could be hard wired, without extra GUI. Out 1/2 would be default as normal. Every other track n would be on output n+2 if the number of outputs is available. Mostly it would require diving into the jack code. Maybe also output buffers. (I was never concerned with driver programming, only soft and hard dsp).

Using another tracker is out of the question. (tried them all). First I thought it would be a hard learning curve and I can't use it when im drunk and stoned. Wrong! It goes like a charm, I managed complex (well - it seemed complex at this time) programming tasks like 5 over 13. The next day I had the handbook and shortcuts at hand - and it was even better. I like particularly the fact that lts not bar/beats based. At the beginning I thought this is for rapid prototyping. And you can have a grid as fine as you like - with the expand function. Now I like the raw sound and many many tracks will make it straight into the final mix. If only I had the chance to connect 20 milky-tracks straight to my mixing desk...

and big thanks again for this piece of software.

MilkyTracker Feature Requests / XM 2 MID
« on: June 06, 2008, 06:27:10 »
HI, (new here)

first off all: big thanks for this masterpiece of coding art...

I want to extract the note timing information from the XI file to create say a midi file from it. A quick search didn't show any results. I am ready to read some code also, XI format definition is open, I guess?

Can somebody point me into the right direction ?
