I have just discovered a behavior in Milkytracker that I can't explained.
If I play the same note with the same instrument at the same time on several channels, the volume seems to be increased.
In theory, that's not possible, because the maximum volume value is 0x40 in the volume column.
So I am wondering what happened exactly when I put the same note with the same instrument at the same time on 2 channels. I can hear that the volume is increased.
Can I tell I have more than 0x40 and how much exactly ?
How the volume is distributed between each channel?

Thank you.

I don't see how this cannot explained and which theory would tell you that this is impossible. When the channels are mixed together, they are all added up. So if you play the same sample twice on two channels, the final volume is twice as loud, because the same stuff is mixed twice.
