OVERVIEW
8-voices tracker. Multi-song. Good mixing method. Separate volume and pattern per voices. Both SPM and SPS files can be packed with different algorithms.

FEATURES

- System friendly, OS 2.0 look (with our personal touch of course), no enforcer hit!, installs as commodity, AppIcon, AppMenuItem... Allocates channels, can deallocate without quitting. Compatible with VGA/Multisync etc. screens. Gets the best from the Amiga and puts you in a secure environment.
- Locale support. English and French currently; German in progress. Any translator is welcomed.
- "Everything on screen" and ergonomic user interface, studied with a tracker musician. Secure against unwished operations..
- full-featured AREXX port
- Extreme configurability.
- Noise/ProTracker keyboard shortcuts emulation.
- Custom module format, allows compression of sample banks with three different and dedicated methods.
- Import of 13 existing formats (e.g. ProTracker, FastTracker,OctaMed, Oktalyzer, ThePlayer...)
- Export of ProTracker and FastTracker formats in addition toits own format (full version only)
- XPK support. Passwords handled.
- XFD support (allowing decrunching of more than 100 packers,like CrunchMania, StoneCracker...).
- Builtin decompression routines for Powerpacker and CrunchMania (if XFD is not available).
- Multi-song (65.535 possible)! Available song-synchro commands in the player for interactive music.
- Up to 65.535 patterns!, shared between songs.
- Patterns seperated for each track, allowing you e.g. to reuse a beat or a bass line from a position to another ! Command for "remapping" duplicate patterns in imported modules that haven't this feature (ex. ProTracker) saving a lot of memory!
- Up to 255 samples! Can be loaded in FAST memory : no size limit except the size of your fastmem.
- 4 ("native") tracks or 5,6,7,8 tracks, all with configurable mixing quality, from 4 to 50 Khz (28 Khz on PAL/NTSC "basic" displays). All effects can be used in all modes, no restrictions! Mixing technique is more like TFMX than OctaMed or ArtOfNoise resulting in high quality sound. Each song can have its own number of tracks, and you can jump from e.g. one song in 4 tracks to one in 7 without hearing a noise or whatever!
- Each track has its own volume. General volume for the music. Master volume on top of all controlled by the programmer.
- Loads samples in CHIP or FAST memory, no difference.
- Up to SEVEN effects per note per track!
- Special "FX" track with up to EIGHT effects per line, dedicated to speed and general control commands.
- Extended effects!
- Effect for gearing your program to the music (calls a user function when this effect is reached). Ideal for game intros,demos, etc.
- Command for MIXING a position into a sample ! Make your arpeggios, drums or whatever...
- Command for timing a song; no need to play the whole song to know  its duration anymore.
- Highly optimized play and mixing routines.
- Player is a shared library, used even by the editor!
- AmigaGuide Documentation in English and French (German planned).
- Nice example musics in 4 to 8 tracks, composed by Jerôme Angelot, the musician who helped us designing this tracker. (more musics in the full version)
- Provided Harddisk-installation Installer script.
- Full developer documentation for player and fileformat, with examples in Assembler and C, link library for SAS; you can use the player library or include the player in your programs ("system friendly" and "no operating system" (for games and demos) versions provided)  (full version only)
- Players for DeliTracker and EaglePlayer and independant player  (full version only)
- Editor, player and packers fully programmed in Assembler.
- Constant support. Most user requests have been satisfied yet and we will continue to do so.
