MOD with compressed 8SVX samples
« on: October 11, 2021, 19:18:44 »

Hi all,

i'm sure this is a good place to ask if anyone knows a MOD or XM tune with compressed 8SVX samples.

Thanks in advance

Maybe you could elaborate on what you want to achieve or what you are looking for, because it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. Do you want to use the 8SVX Fibonacci-delta compression in modules? That isn't part of either the XM or the MOD specification (samples are always raw PCM, or with ModPlug extensions 4-bit ADPCM), so it cannot be done without modifying the software that is used to read and write those files.

A while back I did an IFF ILBM/8SVX parser/player in JS which also handles all compression types (fibo, exp, ADPCM2+3). Not worth advertising but for completeness: https://drsnuggles.github.io/IFF/
I just was wondering if 8SVX compressed samples were used in MODs back in the days.
Now i know, thanks and yes i wanted to modify software :evil:
