Author Topic: Wanted to share a new mod of mine but it's MT2 - what's my best option?  (Read 6991 times)

Hi trackers,

I recently tried my hand at tracking again after almost ten years. I had written lots of modules when I was younger using Tracker and Desktop Tracker - you probably hadn't heard of those because they were on the Archimedes. But that isn't my point. :)

I just finished my first new mod, and am pretty happy with it. I wanted to share it, but I used MadTracker and just discovered that The Mod Archive doesn't accept MT2 mods. My bad, I should have checked first, but already I'm hooked on MadTracker and don't want to give it up. In fact I just went and paid for the professional registration.

What's my best option for sharing my work? Is it possible to convert an MT2 mod to a supported format while maintaining fidelity? Or should I just use the MadTracker hosting when it comes through and link my homepage to there?

Cheers,
Rich.

Your best bet is probably to convert to MP3. As far as I know, MadTracker can do that out of the box.

Hi, good morning!

Already done, for the moment I've uploaded it to my ISP webspace: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/richard-wild/music/rich-hardcore1.mp3

The playback is a bit choppy though, probably best to save the file locally before playing it.

oooh ravey :) why does it glitch though? It seems the recording is screwed... skips beats. Saving it locally doesn't change a thing.

Regarding Archimedes, the only music app I remember from my school days on them was Maestro. Ewww. Notation :)

Hmmm how annoying. Must have happened during the upload? The original mp3 on my machine definitely doesn't glitch. I'll try another upload. Thanks for listening!  I wanted to try to recreate the sort of rave I remember from the good old days of 94-95. :)

I fixed it by uploading it again with FileZilla instead of the DOS ftp client, it seems to be fine now. :)

It was a good first play to get used to some of the features of MadTracker. I used the distortion effect on the bass drum and the bass line to get that hardcore sound. I used the resonant filter to get the squelchy acid sound, and reverb on the piano and synth to give it some body. After I exported it to a WAV I used Audacity to equalize it a bit, because the original mod is a bit bass heavy, and then finally I compressed it to add the finishing touch. I'm very happy with the result.
