Indeed, suspect.xm is pretty much a 1:1 rip, with slowdown.xm having some superficial changes and edits, but still being quite clearly a rip. Both are declared as "remixes" without giving credit to the original authors.

Please don't bump topics if you are already on the top of the list anyway.
Instead of bumping, it might be helpful if you provided a recording of the song because I know many people will be weary executing random executable files related to the cracking scene.

Please check your personal messages.

Periods are divisions of the Amiga's CPU clock, so the frequency is derived from the formula 3546895 / period. If you have the possibility to use a custom MOD format for your player, I would recommend against using the Amiga pattern data as-is, because in particular the period values make it harder to use than necessary. On the earliest Amiga trackers this made sense when there was no finetune (you could just send the period, as it was written in the pattern data, to the hardware) but as soon as finetune comes into play, even on Amiga this optimization doesn't make sense anymore. So to save some cycles, you may want to either put note values in converted pattern data, or directly whatever numeric value your mixer needs to determine at which speed to advance the sample data.

One criticism I got could need further technical advice: the quality of the vocals. I just used my smartphone to record my voice, and I guess, I had trouble to get the voice to the volume, I wanted, so there are often two tracks with the vocal samples. Do you have same tipps for me?
While smartphones are pretty amazing all-round devices these days, I wouldn't rely on them for recording. Their microphones are typically not designed for the best possible quality but for small size, and you never know what kind of post-processing is applied on the software side. A good field recorder / dictation device or desktop microphone would probably sound better and isn't all that expensive. Generally there are many techniques to add volume and power to samples, including effects such as compressors / limiters, reverb and equalizers. This is a broad topic that cannot be summarized in a single forum post, but there are many tutorials explaining that kind of stuff. It requires effort but so do all self-recorded samples if you want them to sound good.
Double-tracking (recording the same vocals twice, as you did) is also a common technique in music production to add volume, but to be honest you didn't seem to spend any effort on it: The two samples playing at once e.g. in "Theorie" have completely different timing, so syllables from the same word appear at slightly different times, and more importantly, with completely different intonation, which sounds pretty bad to my ears. If you want good results, you cannot just recording the same vocal lines twice - you have to do it again and again until you have two samples that fit together, with timing and intonation as closely together as possible. Everything else will just be perceived as poor quality.

Thanks, the truncated file has been removed. In the future, you can report these sort of dupes in this thread.

With both tunes that you uploaded so far, we have found a couple of issues and decided against adding them to the archive. These issues include: Random, arhythmic melodies, very repetitive content, and low-quality vocal samples. All in all, the results weren't very listenable. While some of these elements may be used for effect by advanced musicians, it is typically easy to identify when it wasn't intentional but rather a beginner mistake. In this case, they sound like very early attempts at writing module music, and since uploads to ModArchive are permanent, we try to keep modules that sound like very early tries at making music out of the archive - artists typically don't like them anymore once they have gathered a bit more experience. We encourage you to not give up, though. I suggest you collect feedback from friends or from people here on the forum (in the "Look what I made") section to better understand what people like about your tracks and what you can do better. You can change attachments uploaded to the forum anytime so that's a nice way to upload Work In Progress material that you might update or delete later.
