I look forward to it. I'll provide any information I find back, as well as a file with the actual modarchive ids. It would be interesting if this could identify some common samples that certain genres used. Finding remixes of existing files has already proven interesting.

I can look into providing a dump, but probably not before the weekend.

I recently processed the archives from modland, modarchive, and the keygen music library. I extracted all of the samples from these files and hashed them, allowing cross-comparison across the files. This means if you have one file you like, you can find other ones that are similar. This is great for finding remixes and similar songs. (And also for finding rippers as well.)

I'd like to also use this information to understand more about what artists and genres of module files, but unfortunately I do not see any database dumps available and I don't want to scrape this site. If you are interested in helping my work, I would greatly appreciate a TSV (preferred) or CSV dump containing the MD5 sum, numeric ID, genre, and artist of the module files. (This also makes my data more useful to others.)

Regardless, you can find my analysis of the files here:

The format of the file is TSV, with the columns: File MD5, Sample MD5, Sample Length, Loop, Sample Name

Additionally, here are files that also include the names of the files:
 - Prefers Modland:
 - ModArchive Only:

If you'd like to find files similar to one you know of, you can use this shell command:

grep "md5-sum-of-file" sample-index | cut -f 2 | while read -r line; do grep "$line" sample-index | sort -u; done | cut -f 1 | sort | uniq -dc | sort -h

Edit: Also, here are computed ReplayGain values for all of the files too. The values were calculated by converting every mod file to a flac and running python-rgain over them.

Edit 2: Here are guessed sample names:
Rougly 7.6 percent of the extracted samples have guessed names. Many of them may be incorrect. These were automatically guessed with this script:

Hello again...! Yes, I know that it is not plagiarism or something similar, it was only knowing if this action was legal. About the comment, nothing happens. There is no disrespect and it seems normal. Thank you! ;)

This is a bit of a difficult/weird case, but I wouldn't necessarily call it ripping / plagiarism as he always posts his edits as comments on the original tracks and never claims them as his own. But if you like, I can remove the comment on your track of course.

Hello, yesterday I found this comment in "Memories of time":
Posted by Janko Weber on Fri 14th Feb 2020, rated 6/10.

Your stuff is never bad. But always I hear or see some
disharmonies and interferences in your songs.
Unlike other people I don't like the arrangement for
Memories of time and I think you should finish this song. ???
Some instruments sounds horrible for me.

I hear this in your song ...

memories_of_time-oarisch_aac-48kbps.aac (1.16 MB)

I replied kindly without believing that he was clearly the cause of uploading these link my xm.
Well, as I listen to removed channels and I do not know if something has changed, you can ... the uploads are in aac, and those pages do not say upload date or who ... I see the title respects it but my name artist, no ... in short, the license I usually put is that of Atribution Non-commercial Share Alike. I don't know what to do, I need some support, because I see that he is doing it to other artists. It does not create modules and has no favorites. I don't know what a type of person does here with I don't know what purpose ... Thank you!  :o

while i was looking through wayback archived old modarchive i saw the module with the title "L.P.> Free (Systems)" with the filename "free.xm", but when i searched the filename it seems that it have been replaced by a module from 'megascope' with the upload date '13th Mar 1999', since it had a same filename and format. (also the wayback page i linked is a page on modarchive archived on feb 1999) i looked through modland but i couldnt find it. (not even on the exotica search)

do anyone have this module?

the module is also mentioned on a module from magnus :

I've sent this thread to some people who might be in contact with Ilmarque.
