Help me find that... / Re: Please help identify a tune

Unfortunately I don't have an answer for you, but I wanna hear the full tune too. I definitely hear some ST-xx samples in there though; very likely PT/ST. Any idea roughly when it was made?

No idea if the OP is gonna check back and see this, but in case you do here's another one to try: "Gear For Your Ear" by DJ Hardsequenzer, from this musicdisk:

Project / Coder's Corner / LibOpenMPT under DOS
« on: September 09, 2014, 03:34:48 »
I'm throwing around ideas in my head (and on paper) for a tracker tool. Basically a glorified in-module sample editor that does some specific features I want.

I'm not really a coder so this would be a learning project. I just want to be able to open the module, edit the samples in situ, and play it back to hear the changes right away.

So yeah, was wondering if it would even be possible to use LibOpenMPT in a DOS program? I'm not worried about doing hardware mixing on GUS/AWE just yet so if the output is a simple 16-bit 44kHz stream that I can pass to the soundcard's DMA that would be fine.

I'd most likely be doing this in RapidEuphoria which can hook in C or assembly modules. I don't need a really complicated set of playback options, but 'play sample', 'play module', 'play pattern', and turn on/off channel functions would be really handy. I *do* want accurate replay of IT files (with filters) which is why I'm thinking the MPT routines.

Following up after a few months... I managed to track down most of this artist's songs. Some are from Axxy, some I found on Hornet Archive mirrors and some are from my own HDD backups from back in the day (seems I didn't delete as much as I thought!)

The originals:
Onslaught (I love this! Kicking breaks with some awesome acid guitar)

New uploads:
Big Brother
Freedom has an AK
Untitled (I think this is called 'Buzz' on his website)
Omen (great trance~y track, with a bit of tribal drums)
Until the End (nice goa lines)
Sleep (another trancey chill tune, lovely warm organ pads)
Shellshock (*Awesome* jungle piece - just listen to that chopped-up break!)
Speed is Good
Whacked (if you like hoovers click this one!)
I Can't Be Bothered

Those are all the ones I can find for now... I'm still missing "Just Another Brown Suit" and "Koresh" (<-- I don't wanna google for that :D), but I hope I did the tracker community some good. It was fun to 'curate' a bunch of great mods from an otherwise forgotten artist.

Cool, nice work! Yeah Ripper5 was amazing, I still use it. It's in the system path on my DOS machine for quick rippery. 8) A version for modern Linux systems would be boss, following this with interest!

DoWhackaDo was an ordinary 4 channel mod (it's this one), which I suspect was made on PC as it's not quite Protracker/Amiga compatible (some notes are out of range for Paula, etc.) I made a 'fixed' version that plays nice with Hoffman's PT-1210 dj app, but that's getting off topic...

Very cool! Will listen on my system and give you some feedback on the conversion soon.

Could you do some of their lesser known demos with the same system? E.g. Blackglass 1 & 2 ? I've actually never been able to get the music for those working natively, they hate my AWE64.

Thanks for doing this! I've wanted to poke around with these tunes in module form for ages as well. Really cool to see how they're made; definitely post some updates here when you've got them!

Has anyone ever created a song that uses both Adlib and sampled instruments?  When I play these files in ScreamTracker the Adlib notes seem to play too soon relative to the sampled ones, but when I use SchismTracker they are fine.  But then SchismTracker seems to mangle some Adlib notes so I'm not sure.  Just looking for feedback as to whether there are any known issues with trackers/players in this respect.

They seem to play fine on my setup, no apparent timing problems... I'm using a GUS for digital playback and an SB for FM (ST3 can use both at the same time if they are installed together - theoretically this should work under Dosbox too, but who knows.) I also tried in 'pure' SB mode and didn't hear any problems.

Foreign Shores (z66ep1v3.s3m) has an FM snare layered with a sampled snare - they should (and do) hit at exactly the same time. Best test I could think of.

I can record the output from my machine for you if it helps. Let me know.

Old OPL2 chips on SB cards are notoriously slow to respond but I didn't think that extended to *music timing*... I'm using an AWE64 with Creative's CQM FM chip.

I think Manwe/Sands has some tracks up on Youtube using simultaneous FM+samples.

Look what I made! / Re: Advanced Impulse Tracking w/hardware

WHAT? I made an XM!

No, I didn't use FT2... or Milky for that matter - I used DigiTrakker 3.2. Awesome prog!

3rd in Oldskool @ Solskogen. 8) Extremely pleased.

Tracking / Hard acid trance / techno Hively or AHX mods
« on: July 07, 2014, 13:40:38 »
...recommend me some good ones please!

Just installed Hively and am looking for inspiration. Bubbly chiptunes are nice but I wanna see it do massive basses, screaming filter sweeps, pounding overdriven kickdrums... I know it can!  8)

Tracking / Re: What's your tracker / format of choice? And why?
« on: June 26, 2014, 08:28:49 »
On the note of MMX, I think there is an unofficial DOSBox build (maybe the daum stuff?) with an MMX implementation, so you could give that a go.

That's right, I forgot about Daum's build; I had that going for a while. But it still doesn't emulate an AWE or Interwave (so no MIDI.) If I just want filters and don't need MIDI it's easier to just pop open Schism.
