MilkyTracker Vamped Edition


What is it?

The MilkyTracker Vamped Edition is based on the outstanding MilkyTracker music production software and has been extended by members of the demogroup Titan and the AmigaDev team. Comparable to DOSBox forks like DOSBox-X this edition contains useful additions and changes to support the Amiga platform fast and natively. It also contains other new and experimental features. Of course we plan to merge most of them into the main MilkyTracker version.

This edition currently contains:

  • Native Amiga support, but still needs RTG (we support P96 and CGX)
  • Native 4-channel 8-bit output support on Paula/Commodore
  • Native 8-channel 16-bit output on Arne (Apollo-Core)
    (16 channels are planned with a future core)
  • 16-bit PiP display on SAGA (Apollo-Core)
  • GadTools based setup dialog to choose the resolution and audio settings
  • Titan's Magic Toolbox
  • MilkyPlay based console player

Bugs/WIP/Planned features are:

  • WIP: Fix subtle screen flashing while playing
  • Bug: File selection: up/down arrows don't scroll text
  • Feat: AGA 8-bit display via C2P
  • Opt: ASM optimization of drawing routines and primitives
  • Feat: Intuition-based replacement UI
  • Feat: MIDI In/Out
  • Feat: Playback a whole directory one song after another

Current performance is quite good with 33% load on the Apollo V4 Core (68080) while playing an 8-channel XM. You can reach halfway acceptable performance on a 68040.

Additionally we added Titan's Magic Toolbox (TMT) which has been used in a 64k by Titan several years ago:

  • Additive synthesizer: Create nice pads, choirs, strings and bells for 64k sizetros. The algorithm creates loopable samples.
  • HP/LP filters and ADSHR envelope
  • Playback libraries for Windows (based on MiniFMOD) and Amiga (based on PTPlayer)
  • If you are interested in using that in your production, contact us

You can enable the toolbox in the configuration in the Misc tab, then restart and press the M button on top of the instrument listbox. Generating these samples natively on the Amiga is currently quite slow so we advice you to either use WinUAE/JIT or the Windows version if you want to create your intro song with it!
