Sampling / Re: MAZ No.1 Instruments

... old Topic, but did this work out? I do have the CD as well, just in case ...

What worked out? The retrieval of the XI files or the upload of the CD?

Either way, they're not resolved as of yet, seeing from this thread.

The Lobby / Surround in .mod?
« on: July 05, 2020, 15:49:49 »
I'm confused as to how this author managed to execute surround pan in this module.

Also, there's a command "?91" (as shown in the attachment) that activates the surround when played back on OpenMPT. This could be the S91 command from .it.

Does this mean that there was actually a way to hack panning controls in .mods? That's pretty cool, ngl.

The Lobby / New Song Reupload

Can the screener upload the second file instead of the first (while leaving the filename as the first)? I did some adjustments to the instrument texts and the title. Thanks!

Hey there! Unfortunately, Uber deleted his Discord server some time ago.

Here's a continuation of the alternative server:

I have my CD right here. And incredibly as it sounds, it appears that it is still readable.

Seems like there's hope after all. Anyways, I'm just going to ask you straight up: can you put it up for download? MAZ hasn't been contactable since years ago, and...well I can't even buy it.

The line is of course blurry between the Gens, however it also takes into account:

- Release date (e.g 3rd Gen started circa 1998)
- Development period (e.g OpenMPT being developed since 2006)
- Capability (e.g VST-compatible)
- Commercialisation (e.g Renoise incorporating DAW features and interface)
- Backwards "compatibility" (e.g retaining accurate playback of .IT files)
- Operating Systems (e.g Amiga)
- Goals of the tracker (e.g MilkyTracker staying as 2nd Gen)

FT1 and ST are DOS programs sure, but I don't see anything apart from the OS it ran on that is particularly groundbreaking about them. In my view, the change is much more apparent later when they've matured into FT2 and ST3 respectively.

As it is now, they're already "transitional" trackers, just different versions of the same programs. The description of each gen is there to provide context to the period it was in, not the trackers specifically.

4th Gen is reserved mainly for trackers that are still in active development. By commercialisation, I don't mean in the sense that you have to pay to get it (if that was the case, MIDITracker would've be classified as 4th Gen). I mean in the sense that it presents itself as a contemporary product, meaning graphically-pleasing, straightforward and responsive.

There are definitely "transitional" trackers (i.e Renoise being 3rd at first, moved to 4th), which I intend to include, as well as the version numbers and years of development. OctaMED (at least the later versions i.e MED Soundstudio) could be classified as 2nd Gen, but I don't see it capable of being 3rd Gen. Same goes for X-Tracker.

Ok, after giving it some thought, I decided to post this to see how much (and how far) we've come since Grand Daddy. This is an expandable list, so please present your thoughts or opinions on each tracker's classification (1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th). I'd love to hear them, as well as learn more obscure trackers out there throughout history.


1st Gen: First of its Kind
This marks the start of the tracker era. Primitive yet simple to work with, it serves the purpose of creating video-game music with its low filesize and respectable list of effects. Along the way, the base format .MOD got extended to 8 channels with 7-bit panning. Other (later) formats include .OKT, .MED and .STM, all of which are usually an extension of .MOD with a twist meant for its native trackers.

1st Gen trackers include:
Ultimate Soundtracker (Grand Daddy)
Soundtracker Pro II
Scream Tracker


2nd Gen: Upping the Ante
Trackers evolved into the 2nd Gen, where capabilities are expanded even more. Computers are faster and stronger...its the DOS age! Soundcards are all the rage: SB or GUS? The list of channels, effects and instruments are extended further than ever before. Formats that sprout from this gen are .S3M, .XM and .IT. While .XM expanded on .MOD's effects set, .S3M decided to modify it into its own and .IT followed suit.

2nd Gen trackers include:
FastTracker II
Scream Tracker 3
Impulse Tracker 2
Schism Tracker
MED Soundstudio


3rd Gen: Bridging the Gap
Developers realise that trackers can do more than what Impulse Tracker 2 could. They got inspired mainly by its New Note Actions (NNAs) and low-pass filter capability, to make their trackers VST-compatible! Not only that, the capabilities of the previous formats are also expanded further. Formats that are born from this gen include .MPTM, .SKM and .MT2. .MPTM follows behind .IT, while .SKM and .MT2 follow behind .XM.

3rd Gen trackers include:
MadTracker 2

However, another group decided that keeping samples as its main source for instruments is not the way to go, and went another route: modular synthesis! By focusing on building instruments via "modules", they open up a new door for the tracking community to explore.

3rd Gen Modular trackers include:
Jeskola Buzz


4th Gen: Bringing it to Commercialisation
This is the peak for trackers currently. Having GUI influences from DAWs, as well as the focus to bring tracking to a new paradigm, they spearhead the 4th Gen. Although focus on full compatibility with the previous formats are dropped, this proves to be more of a pro than a con as they are not restricted to just traditional concepts such as Ticks and Samples.

4th Gen trackers include:
