Version 1.4 has been released on App Store

This took a while, but version 1.4 is now finally released on App Store. This version brings a pretty cool feature that I call AutoChord Instruments. It is a feature that will help you enter AutoChords using effect 8 without having to remember the details about this command. Instead, you can use AutoChord Instruments. AutoChord is a way to auto transpose a specific pattern and track to another pattern and track from C-major to e.g. A-minor. This makes it possible to create wave-sequences as instruments and auto-transpose them, and by using AutoChord Instruments this is easier than ever....

VividTracker’s modplayer soon released as Open Source

My new game Spinoid is soon released on the App Store. It’s just a few days left, if everything goes well. The music in Spinoid is made in VividTracker and the game is using VividTracker’s modplayer routine for playing both the music and the sound effects. Both the explosions and the sound of the rocket are played as samples from the mod-file. I added two sound channels to the code for sfx playback. This made it possible to prepare both the music and the sound effects in VividTracker, using AudioCopy to paste in samples that I wanted to use for explosions and rocket sound...

VividTracker v1.3 has been released on App Store

Version 1.3 is now available on App Store. It comes with the new AutoChord Keyboard feature I have talked about before. This is an amazing new feature that adapts the keys to only show the pentatonic scale for the current AutoChord. The last key (blue colour) will show the current chord. This makes it super easy to write music that goes in harmony with the current chord. You turn on AutoChord Keys by pressing the ACK-button on Screen 6. Only the first two tracks control the AutoChord Keys.

black queen.mod and similar mods are finally working! (Support coming in v1.2)

Finally! I got black queen.mod working properly in VividTracker. This module is more beautiful to your eyes than to your ears, but from that perspective it’s truly a masterpiece. According to a comment in modarchive, this module is recommended for anyone making a mod player: http://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=89637 The problem was related to how VividTracker interpret the E6x command and the Bxx commands. These work properly now. I had to listen to black queen in both Protracker on my Amiga 1200 and in VividTracker at the same time (synced manually by...

VividTracker v1.1 is live on App Store

Version 1.1 is now live on App Store. It comes with two new features: Audiobus 2 support and rudiment Bluetooth keyboard support. There’s no support for keyboard shortcuts like in Protracker yet, just very simple support for playing notes on the keyboard, but I’m working on implementing shortcuts to get as close as possible to Protracker. This is a good start anyway, and I’m looking forward to hear your comments about it. I will now get started on v1.2, which will contain more keyboard support.
