You guys are always talking about IT "filters" but as a matter of fact there is only one type of filter in IT. And that's a low pass resonant filter. There is no IT "filters" or whatever, it really sounds like IT had a crazy bunch of them. I just wanted to get this straight.
haha, okay then let's call it IT filter and OpenMPT filters - OpenMPT also got highpass filters :P

I thought this thread was about Impulse Tracker and FastTracker II.

Renoise can also import XM/IT/MOD files and you can add plenty of digital fx but I guess that's not the point :P

IT. It's more advanced, and I like the text based interface of Impulse Tracker!

Unfortunately the more advanced format doesn't automatically turn a bad song into a good song ;)

i prefer XM & MOD format... And for Interfaces, i really "hate" to learn 564258249856 keyboard shortcuts for operations you can do with a mouse 100 times faster  ;D

The Protracker / Fasttracker interface is unbeaten if you ask me  ;D

EDIT: Doesnt mean, IT format sukks  :police: ... But i didnt feel "home" in ImpulseTracker & Clones..

Well, it's certainly a question of taste if you prefer mouse or keyboard. I myself also prefer keyboard shortcuts which are pretty fast if you know them, and in OpenMPT you can even create them yourself (no need to learn new shortcuts!).

It's a common misconception that FT2 was mouse driven. While working, there's practically a keyboard shortcut for everything and experienced musicians hardly use the mouse. But the fact that you can ALSO do more things with the mouse probably made it more accessible to beginners.
