txt-based formats support needed
« on: April 13, 2011, 21:28:25 »

from a long time i use a tracker named VortexTracker - it's very limited, but it has an unique feature: can load and save tunes in text format, which means you can edit them both on a tracker as well on a simple text editor

in my oppinion, all binary tune formats, like .mod, .xm, .it, .s3m, etc.., can have their txt-based version, simply having the bytecode info describedn into text lines, the tunes as we edit them as well (take a look from the modplugtracker clipboard when pasting them on a text editor), and the samples stored in an encoding like hexdump (takes a large space, but they are easy to edit, and simple to use/create), or base64, or compressed-base64 (like base64-bzip, base64-gzip, etc.. - can take a smaller space, but harder to edit)

would be great if MilkyTracker could be innovative when supporting txt-based formats, when other trackers are sadly missing it

I agree. This is a very good feature.
