Announcements / Server move
« on: August 03, 2020, 18:02:31 »
Hello,

 We are back online after a few days off. We have been changing the server's location.
 We expect to be off briefly in the coming days (no date yet).

 Thank you for your understanding.

Stay safe

Hello and welcome,

 There is no way to download it all, here. Modarchive.org may indeed help you there or ftp.modland.com also since it's an ftp. They both share their content for mass download.

Good luck :)

Ripping Amiga music / Re: Devils Replay

You have it right. The header is 100% identical to Protracker, so ... yeah, that's nice :)
There was no indication. or even mention, of this packer or its author within the prods. I tried to widen the search to prods that were released in the same span of time (~1991). To no avail. Although, you're right, TKB is a likely candidate indeed.
So yeah, please, reach out to any Devils member and report back ;)

Ripping Amiga music / Devils Replay
« on: May 28, 2020, 18:17:53 »
All,

 I've recently spent some time on an unknown (to me) protracker clone format. I don't know the name nor the author. The material is found only in Devils prods, so .. I've made up this very original name "Devils replay" :)

 I started looking at this when handling this No Reality demo by Devils. Rather quickly, I found that it's the very same format as found in Colors demo, also by Devils.
 Cybfree, once again, quickly reminded me that this format was already beaten - more precisely, the musics from Colors were already converted. Great !, so, I can write a quite converter myself for the others.

 That's exactly what I did. It took me 3 days because I'm still not great at coding, but it's done. So, first, all the cases found are here:
http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/release.php?id=752

 The format itself is somewhat unique in that it does things I've not seen elsewhere. Promizer could be a distant cousin of some sort :)

Code: [Select]
standard protracker header until 'M.K.' at 1080
1084          short         size of pattern data [A]
1086 + [A]    short         size of reference table [B] - must be at an even position
1086 + [A]    short         sample data
+ 2 + [B]     

pattern data:
192 bytes per pattern
3 bytes per row:
 0 byte : filter
 1 short : address to read in reference table

Reference table:
contains rows of output unpacked notes - so up to 16 bytes.
depending of the filter, above, the blocks of word/short are stored
filter : abcd-efgh
output: in 16 bytes
B1 B2 B3 B4 B5 B6 B7 B8 B8 B10 B11 B12 B13 B14 B15 B16
|  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |   |   |   |   |   |   |
 \/    \/    \/    \/    \/     \ /     \ /     \ /
  a     b     c     d     e      f       g       h
if the filter bit is set, the corresponding output is stored in the reference table.

 I guess that's it. No sure I was too clear on this one. Please, report back if you want more details.

 Again, huge thanks to Cybfree for the help.

Music database / Re: Laurence module
« on: May 19, 2020, 19:01:48 »
the cooperation mod has been sitting in my unknown folder for probably 20 years.... :o
"unknown folder" ? can you expend on that ?
OK, it's off topic, here, but it's interesting. You would share your "unknown folder" ?
On AMP side, we are not too much on the "unknown author" side. We have our own Unknown Composers that doesn't contain too much things but it's all more or less sourced (we know where those come from).
On Kestra side, the no author list is big but not easy to trace. We have correctly set a few of them. I'll try to add a few more because 61 is definitely not the lot :)

Cheers

Hello,

 Thanks Curt Cool :)
 OK, here's my take.
Thanks to Curt Cool, we know that MOD.jungle comes off the musicdisk by Vanish at the end of 1992. MOD.cooperation comes from an Abandon cracktro in Q1 of 1992. And ... both are memrips on AMP/modland.

 Anyway, The differences between the two are :
1. useless set speed added in MOD.jungle (F04) - doesn't affect anything
2. The 7th sample has its data after loop end removed in MOD.jungle

 Two choices, here.
-> Keep both and comment that MOD.jungle is an edited version of MOD.cooperation - and do this "evolution" thing on Kestra.
-> Trash mod.jungle and comment on Kestra.

 I missed something ? Oh, and yeah, I'm updating both now on AMP with non-memrips

The Amiga musician Razmo has passed away.
This sad news was reported on FB and local Danish social media web site - at least.
Our condolences to family and friends.

more feedback about uploads

2.MUS (53411 bytes) is https://amp.dascene.net/downmod.php?index=76459
3.MUS (84628 bytes) is a destroyed dupe of https://amp.dascene.net/downmod.php?index=23867
please, stop uploading those (already received 5 times in the past 9 days !)

We also received
OtherFormat.7z contains 434 files in exotic format !
chiptunes.7z contains 442 files in exotic format too !
modules.7z contains 1656 files in MOD/XM/S3M/IT format.
=> whoever upped this, please, contextualise ! While I didn't check everything, I still noted many files that are already on AMP - and obvious "sorting" mistakes. Send a mail or something.

And once again, to everyone helping us by sending material, please upload a text file to help with the sorting. As an unwritten rule, the files without author or contextualized (which prod/party it comes from) are NOT uploaded. Even if we receive the file 50 times ...

Requests / Re: Amiga Music demo displaying Denon amplifier
« on: April 24, 2020, 09:40:59 »
Wanted to answer all that but didn't get the time.
Thanks Axxy.
And personally, this doesn't ring any bell at all.
---- let me rephrase that:
There are many music demo with amplifier displayed. I just don't recall any with waveforms.

Hello all,

 Amongst the various material that was uploaded in recent weeks, there is this archive sent by Dave Simmons. It should be noted as it went by the book - i.e. we got a nice archive with a small note that described authorship and source. There's a nice little story included which I'm sharing to all :

Quote
[...] it's currently the Covid19 lock down in the UK and i've had some spare time to resurrect my Amiga A3000.
Long story short, i lost most of my data through a hard drive failure but i've managed to salvage a few of my old
Pro/Noise/Soundtracker mods. I wasn't exactly part of any group at the time but i was credited as Dwain Dibley by the guys
who used them.

The first group of 8 mods were used on 2 'test' demo disks that probably didn't get released, the second group of 3 mods
are unused/unnamed mods. I believe they were all written between 1988/1989.
[...]

 So thanks, Dave ! Really appreciated :)

 Also, we keep receiving several times the same files again and again and again and again ... So thanks to whoever feeds us with this Polish material, really. It's great but you don't have upload it multiple times. It'll get processed eventually.

Cheers

Very nice music indeed, along many others at this Revision 2020 (online).
I didn't try in Protracker until you suggested it :) It also LOOKS nice :)
