UPDATE #3: Android Proof of Concept Player
« on: July 10, 2009, 10:50:12 »

DroidSound is a proof of concept module player for Android mobile devices, and is developed by Sasq.

This thread is for news and development testing feedback regarding this player.

*UPDATE 3*

Version pre3 is out.:

Download Mirror

or Forum mirror download (backup)

Supports: MOD, S3M, XM, IT, STM, MTM, 669, NSF, GBS, SPC, SID

Confirmed Issues:

- IT playback is a bit buggy in that it occasionally corrupts samples, this seems to be an issue with the library and not the android loader.

- SID works but TinySid is not a very good SID-emulator so many songs sound completely wrong.

- Some SPC songs do not play correctly

Updated: Dec 2009:

The download appears to have disappeared, so has the author, for some time since this was originally posted. You can find the droidsound.apk file as a download on one of the following replies to this thread.

this is great!  I just bought a G1 yesterday and was immediately thinking "i hope there's a module player for the platform!"  So far the mods/s3ms i've listened to already sound great, can't wait to see future progress :)

I put up a new version with some more features & formats, and hopefully a bit more stable, let me know if it works.

Super, I had it playing non-stop mods/s3ms for 5 hours tonight, no problems so far.

I bet Garian will be happy about the NSF support

yes!  The NSF playback sounds pretty good, but i can't seem to access subsongs, even though it recognizes them.  hitting next/previous switches to the next actual file, and letting the songs play through will eventually just loop or end in silence while the player continues to run.  I also tried out the SPC playback, the songs started out just fine (i tested it with a few tracks from mega man x), but after a minute or so it would start skipping portions of the song... other than that though the songs i tried sounded fine... I'll have to do a bit more testing.  Thanks sasq :D

Ok new version, fixed XM, IT, STM, MTM, 669 support - and SPC should work better now.
(Subsongs can be accessed with Long press on the Play button by the way).

I have only tested a few random songs of the more obscure formats so let me know if you find any song that sounds wrong or crashes.

Awesome, just playing with it right now, plays elwood's "deadlock" perfectly.

I really appreciate you dedicating some time into this stuff.

I just noticed that IT stereo samples often gets corrupted. I've gone the loading code and it seems to work so it seems like somewhere in the mixer and that code is hairy as hell... we'll see.
(modplug was written for X86 only and still has bugs)

Yep, noticed this too on a track called 'nelly in 8bit land' and one of eftos's tracks 'antiverse'

http://modarchive.org/module.php?154494 - nelly in 8bit land

http://modarchive.org/module.php?158368 - Antiverse


Both above get corrupted samples.
