The story behind Impulse Tracker 2.15?
« on: September 25, 2019, 06:42:34 »

I've seen references to this version in several modules, but can't seem to find much info about it, the one copy I could find has no documentation. The info I could find seems to suggest that it was a version that was handed out if you donated, but I can't find much info about any new features or bug fixes. Does anyone have additional information on this?

Doesn't say anything related to 2.15 but an interesting read all the same.

There was frankly one user that drifted Jeffrey to that boundary indeed. However, he did still created the IPX network driver for its registered users (2.15) so that collaboration across a LAN was possible (or running multiple PC’s so that you could cross the track boundary of 32).

IT had a 64 track limit on a single system. You didn’t need to do any weirdness with multiple computers. I used it up until I had to switch to Renoise because I couldn’t find good DOS hardware anymore. I still miss a lot of IT’s features. In fact, the NNA loop release feature is still something that I miss.

"donated" is the wrong word here, Impulse Tracker was not donationware. You had to register and pay to receive the stereo WAV writer and the personalized IPX driver. Only such registered users got access to IT 2.15. Now you can build your own IT 2.15 using the released source code.
