Module player for Linux
« on: July 29, 2013, 20:33:12 »
Hi,

I was wondering if you guys know any player for Linux that's similar to XMPlay. I want one that (like XMPlay) has different settings for interpolation (including the option to turn it off), surround modes, the ability to disable panning, and the ability to export to 16 bit PCM with dithering, or to PCM with bit depths bigger than 16 bit. Those are the kind of settings I used with XMPlay so far, and I'm thinking of temporarily switching to Lubuntu until I buy a new, more powerful PC.

Edit: I forgot to mention that it has to support all the sample based module formats XMPlay supports (MOD, FT, XM, IT, S3M, etc).

you could try http://xmp.sourceforge.net/
Can't check now about any front-end for Linux but I did use one (the name escapes me just now) on FreeBSD some time back.

Hmmm. I'm not sure if I'll like a command-line tool, but I will check it out. It seems to support quite a few module formats.

Hey,

 I remembered. I was using XMMS on top of XMP.
http://www.xmms.org/
 If you google for xmp plugin for XMMS, you'll end up with some answers, including a ready to use RPM package.

Hope this helps
