where can one find a HVSC-like adlib music collection? does such exist? the music that comes with adtrack2 is great but i want more!


PS.. the cover of 'ghosts and stuff' by 'deadmau5' made by oxygenstar put a smile all over my face lol...

@d13f00l: Hmm, good point. Never thought of being necessary to set it for standalone player too. Will improve this in next version.

d13f00l, coder from USA. Wednesday, 20th May 2015, 3:58

Ok - setting OPL_LATENCY in the INI file does work, but only for the tracker, not the player!

http://cookwithkevin.com/midi/
Having trouble with ADT2PLAY.EXE - Try an A2M file - it freaks out after a few seconds. Happens with two different sound cards with the hardware chip. It's win98 7.1 dos, but booted straight to dos.
If you do try it, please queue a sapi midi after to stop the horrible noise...

Hey guys, I made a subreddit for Adlib Tracker! There's nothing there yet, but with your help we could turn it into a nice place to post your best tracks and share your favourite FM tricks. Check it out: http://www.reddit.com/r/adtrack2/

Ok thanks for the info, i meant indeed the amount of actual used data in existing modules. I will take a look in the Song Variables window.

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Tuesday, 5th May 2015, 16:31

@ToriH: Don't know if I get your question in correct way.... as either you might want to know how much of this data is used in some of the existing modules you want to port/convert, or you want to hear some procedural description how to do this in any module. For the first case, I would refer you to Song Variables window, where this information is always visible. For the latter case, this is not possible to describe easy, but if you have some level of knowledge in Pascal, it's very easy to distinguish from the source code - just refer to procedures "count_order", "count_patterns" and "count_instruments".

@Darkhog: I suppose you are member Dariusz G. Jagielski from AT2 user group on FB, so all the related points/answers are already there....

Darkhog, newbie from Poland. Tuesday, 5th May 2015, 0:38

Any chances for "proper" win32 port of adlib tracker? I mean with menus and easy interface, preferably similar to either FamiTracker or OpenMPT?

ToriH, another visitor from netherlands. Sunday, 3rd May 2015, 23:16

Hi, i'm trying to port the .a2m module format to a platform with just a limited amount of memory (for replaying only). For that i'm looking for a way to keep the module as compact as possible when saving i.e. put only in the data that is actually needed. For a number of structures this (like the macro_table) this is easy since it contains a length attribute, this already saves up to about half the expanded file size. Is there an easy way to determine the number of actual used data like instruments and instrument macros as well?

Btw: I think you did a very great job with this program!

maggan, musician from sweden. Sunday, 12th April 2015, 9:13

your program is awesome!

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Wednesday, 1st April 2015, 15:27

@dave: Unfortunately for you, AdT2 is not supporting output for more than 1 port (Adlib). It also doesn't feature any MIDI control.

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Tuesday, 31st March 2015, 14:30

@Nic: Yeah, this is already known "bug" with the NUMPAD keys for effect row in ver.2.4.20/2.3.53. It's already fixed.
If it's so annoying that you can't wait for the final release, here are the beta versions for download (only replace proper package content with files included in the ZIP archive :)

dave, newbie from switzerland. Saturday, 28th March 2015, 1:24

Hi there just some random question I am wondering about right now: I bought 3 Soundblaster 16 (CT1740) and a PC with enough ISA ports a year ago. The stuff is laying around as I didn't have the time. Now I was just brainstorming about the hardware and what I can do with it. I was wondered if it is possible to add all the cards into one PC and control them with a tracker? Or do I have to make 3 PC builds and sync them? Can adlib tracker be controled by MIDI over gameport? Probably all n00b questions, but as long I dont have the space to get this stuff started, brainstorming and asking the Pros some questions is all I can do... greets, dave

Nic, musician from Argentina. Tuesday, 24th March 2015, 21:23

@subz3ro: Hey! I'm having so much fun with this tracker that it's almost overwhelming, a stellar find for me. Having said that, I've been using the Adlib Tracker II SDL (Windows) ver. 2.4.20, and for some reason when I try to input the "0" effect (arpeggio) it doesn't type anything and goes down a line. BUT, if I just input a number on the 2nd or 3rd row of the effect column, the "default" effect is 0 and it's the only way I found to gain access to it. Not sure if it's a bug or working as intended, but anyway :) Cheers!

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Friday, 9th January 2015, 4:02

@cyandyedcyanide: Please send me your contact (mail, Facebook, ICQ) to my email address. I'd like to discuss more things with you, which is out of the scope for this message board :) Thanks.

cyandyedcyanide, opl3-geek from Fryslân. Friday, 9th January 2015, 3:43

Awesome, thanks! That was incredibly fast.
For the high-res screen modes, how about 100x37, 132x28 or 132x30? Those are fairly "standard" text modes with all 8x16 characters. I think there's a 160-column mode with 8x16 font too.

I also have some ideas for new features, if you don't mind. In fact, every time I use adtrack2 I always get all sorts of ideas for cool features, more so than musical ideas... But I always keep forgetting to write them down and ask you about it. Oh well, here are a few, let me know what you think of it :)
- For the new track reorder function, I think cut/copy/paste would be useful, like in the pattern reorder window.
- In the instrument remap and transpose windows you can select which parts to change (block/track/pattern/song). Would it be possible to add an option to apply it to one track in all patterns?
- In the instrument editor, I think a diagram of the current 4op mode in the screen corner would be useful, so you can quickly tell which operator you're editing. And maybe a shortcut key to go to the other "half" of the selected 4op instrument?

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Friday, 9th January 2015, 1:39

@cyandyedcyanide: Ok, got all your issues fixed. Please update with latest build of the program from Downloads section. Thanks for your valuable bugreport.
P.S. Changing text-mode screen font to anything lower than current 8x16 would completely cripple the look of the tracker, so unfortunately not.

cyandyedcyanide, opl3-geek from Fryslân. Thursday, 8th January 2015, 21:48

or 132x60, even better, but I think you already said you didn't want to use an 8x8 font...

(and please excuse me misspelling your name...)

cyandyedcyanide, opl3-geek from Fryslân. Thursday, 8th January 2015, 21:26

@subzer0: Whoa, you replied already! Didn't see that...

With 4op tracks I just select two 2op instruments, as usual, and playing some notes in the instrument editor works normally. But entering notes in a pattern seems broken, the right track works correctly but the left track always picks instrument 01.
This used to work like a year or so ago, I think it broke in an update somewhere around the summer.

The VESA modes seem useless to me.. Even with 1000mhz and a seriously fast graphics card and write-combining cache it's really slow. Can't you make it use 132x30 text mode instead?

cyandyedcyanide, opl3-geek from Fryslân. Thursday, 8th January 2015, 21:16

Just noticed something else.. Better post it before I forget! If you jump back/forward with +/- keys while playing, the next pattern doesn't start on row 0 but somewhere between 3-8 instead.

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Thursday, 8th January 2015, 21:13

@cyandyedcyanide: Thanks for feedback. Indeed there is UI problem with ~xy command in 2nd effect column. Must fix that. As for the 4op issue - I didn't notice anything like that... can you be more specific what you are doing and how is the behavior changed compared to previous version??? For 4op tracks you have to select 2 instruments (with Space) in Instrument Control panel, I hope you know that.
As for the high-res screen modes, this is supposed to work exactly as it is (screen port within 90x30). If you want higher screen resolution, you have to use VESA and text-mode emualtion instead (screen_mode being 4 or 5), but be aware this requires pretty much CPU power.

cyandyedcyanide, opl3-geek from Fryslân. Thursday, 8th January 2015, 20:45

Hey :)

Latest updates add some amazing features, especially alt-shift to toggle upper tracks is extremely useful (I've been meaning to ask you about this but never did so...). Great work, thanks!
The track rearranging seems useful too but I think it does exactly the opposite of what I'd expect it to.

I did notice some bugs too:
- 4op note entry seems broken, left track always picks instrument 01 now.
- fine vibrato effect (~xy) breaks the UI. Not since the latest version, it's been like that for as long as I can remember.
- the new high-res screen modes don't seem to work, it's still the same 90x30 resolution but half the program is off-screen now?
And for some reason, adtrack2 crashes on startup now when I boot with UMBPCI+XMGR. Doesn't happen with HIMEMX+JEMM386... But then that might just be my PC since I upgraded adtrack2 right after installing a new mainboard and some other stuff.

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Thursday, 8th January 2015, 4:57

Yo folks! I would like to ask YOU - who have already encountered crashes with DOS version 2.3.53 - please re-download build from 01-07-2015 (already updated in Downloads section), try continue your work with this one and leave some feedback about it (if crashes appear no more, or they still do, ... etc.). For me it looks like I've finally found the root cause of these crashes so I made a fix (I was not able to reproduce past crashes anymore), but this can be only me. Thanks in advance ;)

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Wednesday, 31st December 2014, 3:43

@naku: Already fixed with today's builds of DOS/SDL version. Please re-download the program package. Thanks.

naku, newbie from Argentina. Wednesday, 31st December 2014, 1:38

please help, in the instrument editor i can't make the ADSR PREViEW window go off to edit the parameters behind that window as panning, feedback, fine tune, etc. I have the version 2.3.53 and running on a libretto 50ct

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Wednesday, 24th December 2014, 17:33

@Ivan: Ok. Updated official version too. Please send me some contact (mail, ICQ, facebook) to you on my email address. I would be grateful to have you as beta-tester for following releases of DOS version - you have some really specific equipment out there :)

Ivan, musician from Poland. Wednesday, 24th December 2014, 17:20

beta works great ;) thanks and merry christmas

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Wednesday, 24th December 2014, 4:02

@Ivan: Didn't notice it on my P233.... Please try with this beta if it still suffers from slowdowns.... and let me know asap. Thanks.
http://adlibtracker.net/files/adt2beta.zip

Ivan, musician from Poland. Wednesday, 24th December 2014, 3:49

Hooray for the new version ;) but in all seriousness I found that if you load one of the new diode ma modules (for example samsara), press f5 to play it and after a moment press esc, it starts to play a little bit slower. Is that normal?

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Wednesday, 24th December 2014, 1:28

As I don't know what is the correct "timing" there in your country for presents under Christmas tree, I released Xmas versions today. Have fun guys, and see you in year 2015 - hopefully with some more releases of AT2 :)

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Sunday, 7th December 2014, 4:02

@pulselooper: Well then, maybe 16MB is really way too less for new versions of AT2. In any case, please run it with "/debug" parameter and say me what is written in the debug log.

Diode Milliampere, adlib-wizard from United States. Saturday, 6th December 2014, 17:11

I only use 32mb model libretto 70t. TOSHIBA LIBRETTOS SUCK! 120mhz is not enough and the bass is weak. plus, using an adapter all the time destroy the output jack.

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Friday, 5th December 2014, 1:37

@Pulselooper: It's strange, there are quite many Libretto 70CT users, so I don't suppose all of them are having only the 32MB model. I can't help you more over this message board, as I don't have this notebook so can't remotely analyze your setup. If you have Facebook account, I would recommend you to join the AT2 User Group (web-link is in the Contact & Links section) and raise a question there. I'm quite sure somebody there will be able to help you.

Pulselooper, another visitor from Brazil. Thursday, 4th December 2014, 21:40

still gives me insufficient memory :/

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Thursday, 4th December 2014, 18:23

@Pulselooper: Hit F5 upon displaying "Starting MS-DOS..."

Pulselooper, another visitor from Brazil. Thursday, 4th December 2014, 17:07

Any idea how to get back to ms-dos? Is there a "safe mode"? The thing's freezing on "starting ms-dos" :/

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Thursday, 4th December 2014, 16:53

@Pulselooper: Ok, try with just changing "RAM" option to "NOEMS" for EMM386 and putting "DOS=HIGH,UMB" in your former config.sys file then.

Pulselooper, another visitor from Brazil. Thursday, 4th December 2014, 16:29

Oh shit. Now the Libretto freezes on "starting ms-dos". :(

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Thursday, 4th December 2014, 14:15

@Pulselooper: Conventional memory is absolutely fine (620k is perfect), but as supposed, you have some problem with upper memory. Please try to modify your CONFIG.SYS like described below and let me know:
[Replace first 2 lines with following]
DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS /testmem:off
DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE noems d=64 x=a000-c7ff i=c800-f7ff x=f800-ffff
DOS=HIGH,UMB
[Delete "DOS=HIGH" and "DOS=UMB" in all subsequent lines of your CONFIG.SYS file]

Pulselooper, another visitor from Brazil. Thursday, 4th December 2014, 6:45

Hi subz3ro, thanks for the reply.

Well, hit mem /f and here we go (my ms-dos is in portuguese, I´ll do my best to translate the log into english -- please don´t laugh):

Hope that helps!

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Wednesday, 3rd December 2014, 18:29

@Pulselooper: 16MB RAM should be enough, however, it depends how much you have conventional memory (available for DOS) and how much of upper memory (available for AT2's DOS extender). Best would be if you check this info with "mem /f" command, because comparing the requirements of new versions with the very old one version 2.0.27 is not even possible (as it was yet 16bit application with much less functionality). I presume, that you just don't have the correct memory configuration set in config.sys/autoexec.bat.

Pulselooper, musician from Brazil. Wednesday, 3rd December 2014, 18:09

Hi, I always used an old version of AT2 (2.27 I guess) without a problem on my Libretto (except for the keyboard-freezing issue, which a friend of mine said was fixed on this new version).

So, I just installed the new version (2.3.52) but it won't even run. DOS gives me the following message:

ERROR(1) - Insufficient memory!

Any help on this? I'm using a Toshiba Libretto 70 w/ 16mb RAM and MS-DOS 6.22

Thanks!

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Thursday, 27th November 2014, 2:44

Officially added IN_ADT2 plugin to Downloads section. Thanks for your contribution, insane/Altair! :)

Ivan, musician from Poland. Tuesday, 25th November 2014, 17:23

@subz3ro Toshiba Portege 300ct

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Tuesday, 25th November 2014, 14:24

@Ivan: You're welcome. Just out of curiosity, what kind of computer do you run AT2 on?

Ivan, musician from Poland. Monday, 24th November 2014, 23:03

@subz3ro Thanks this one works great!

I updated to 2.3.52 from an older version. I don't remember which one exactly.

insane, coder from Germany. Monday, 24th November 2014, 17:26

ADT2plugin for Winamp v0.97: http://dawork.synchronus.de/

Please report bugs to my email address (on the webpage)

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Monday, 24th November 2014, 0:25

@Ivan: Ok, so you say with version 2.3.51 you didn't encounter it, and with version 2.3.52 you do - is that correct? Can you be more specific when you do actually get keyboard "stuck"? If it's still in the Pattern Editor, when you are putting down notes in MBoard mode, then this is weird, because there has been no change in version 2.3.52 regarding the keyboard routine which waits for key to be released (this was the problematic part for some notebook models back then). Anyway, this is going to be completely changed again in next version due to enhancement of Note Recorder mode - there won't be any waiting for key release anymore - so just in case this was the root cause of your issues, please try with this beta version 2.3.53 and let me know if it happens there too:
http://adlibtracker.net/files/adt2beta.zip

Ivan, musician from Poland. Sunday, 23rd November 2014, 21:20

Sorry ;) There was a bug in the dos version where the keyboard got unresponsive - https://code.google.com/p/at2/issues/detail?id=8 And Im having this issue again in the new version. Im talking about 2.3.52 for dos

subz3ro, coder from Slovakia. Sunday, 23rd November 2014, 18:21

@Ivan: Be more specific - what "new" version? DOS 2.3.52, SDL/Win32 resp. SDL/Linux 2.4.19?
