MilkyTracker Support / Re: Hi, new guy here. First question
« on: July 30, 2020, 18:14:06 »
From my understanding this "incompatible samples" message should only pop up if you are trying to save a MOD file, not an XM file. The problem with MOD files is that the C-4 frequency is fixed to 8272 Hz (+/- finetune). In XM the C-4 frequency is variable, and if you load a 22 kHz sample, its C-4 frequency will be much higher than the nominal C-4 frequency of the MOD format.

If you absolutely want to work in the MOD format rather than the XM format, you need to go to the instrument editor and change the "Relative note" (at the bottom-right corner of the screen) to be C-4, which means that a C-4 in the pattern will really sound like a C-4 (i.e. it will be played at around 8272 Hz). Now your samples will of course be played too low as you observed, and you have to make up for that by transposing the pattern notes up. If your original sample was 22 kHz, a C-4 should now become a F-5 (not exactly; MOD finetune does not allow to play exactly 22050 Hz).

...in fact I replaced both copies now, as the one on the archive also had the wrong title.

Yeah, that is definitely the "more original" file.

Thanks, alphvlle.mod had the last sample shortened so I removed that one.

The Lobby / Re: Rename files based on meta data
« on: July 24, 2020, 20:10:23 »
Personally I'm not aware of specific tools for that but depending on the data you have available it might be very simple to do. However, I think just renaming files based on their title might not be the best move - lots of titles are abbreviated or left empty altogether. Sometimes people also just put "(c) author name" there. What would you do with modules that have no title set? Or formats that have no clear indication of what their title is? I think this is an important answer to question before you even think about the technical aspect of the task.

Go to My Account -> My Artist Area -> Manage My Modules -> Claim ownership of an archived module.
You need an artist account for that, so I upgraded your account to an artist account.

Help me find that... / Re: Good 8-channel Amiga modules?

Modland also had a folder for Startrekker FLT8 modules, which contained only 1 single module. Guess that format never really took off.
The irony is that in that module, the 2nd set of channels is an exact duplicate of the first. I thought I must be doing something wrong when I implemented support for it in OpenMPT. But no, it's really just an 8 channel module for the sake of being 8 channels. ;D

You can attach it to a forum post if it's small enough, or simply upload it to the archive.

There are actually quite a few MED files with synthesized instruments, but they are not particularly outstanding. Advanced features need advanced users. :)

Digitrakker is definitely a 2nd-generation tracker, yeah. Quite complex in some regards compared to XM, e.g. having more than one envelope per instrument if I recall correctly.
