OVERVIEW

This is a cross platform C64 music editor. Supports output via Dag Lem's reSID engine, the HardSID 4U USB device & HardSID soundcards or CatWeasel MK3.

From V2.0 onwards the editor includes more powerful step-programming (wave/arpeggio, pulse and filter), 63 instruments, more instrument parameters & pattern commands. May be less userfriendly than V1.xx, but you can import V1.xx songs and instruments to see how the corresponding V2 features work. Rastertime usage has stayed about the same. Also available in stereo.

V2.73 Stereo fixes bug with multi-subtune playback init.

FEATURES

Two version of tracker are available: normal and stereo.

Stereo version differs from normal one:
- Only buffered write playroutine without zeropage ghostreg support can be used.
- To play sound effects on the second SID, use channel indexes 21, 28 and 35 for
  voices 1-3 respectively (in the X register)
- Command line differences:
 -Lxx (SID address parameter) takes addresses of both sids written one after
another, right SID in the high word, for example D500D400
 -Hxx (use hardsid) is in hexadecimal format. High nybble specifies right hardsid ID and low nybble left hardsid ID. If right hardsid ID is omitted it is assumed to be left+1. For example 21 tells to use ID 1 for right & ID 0 for left.
- Songdata is otherwise same as normally, but there are 6 orderlists for each subtune.
- Submit a patch if there are bugs in the stereo hardsid output, I have no means to test it.
