I have finally opened a forum so you can discuss anything related to VividTracker or recommend niceĀ Amiga mods. You don’t have to register to read or write. I might have to change that if the forum gets spam posts, but I start like this anyway.

Working on v1.5, added

There’s a new tracker in town (not mine): SidTracker 64

I’m not affiliated with this one, I don’t even know the guys who made it, but I find it worth mentioning anyway. There’s a new tracker coming to the App Store that looks really interesting and it’s called SidTracker 64. It’s a chiptune tracker for the iPad that emulates the SID soundchip and you can even export your productions to the C64 as a prg-file. Very cool indeed. It also supports Audiobus output (just like VividTracker). This is interesting, because it means you could use the following workflow to use the sounds from SidTracker 64 as samples in...
