  1. A: New players for DeliTracker

  " TFMX " DeliPlayer

  TFMX, "The Final Music Xchange", is a Music editor which is
  developped for Chris Huelsbeck. The songdata - the actual notes, is
  separated from the samples and soundeffects. To be able to play these
  tunes in DeliTracker both files must have special names, in order to be
  found at all. For example: "Apidya"    mdat.Apidya  and  smpl.Apidya
  The file does not show up in the filerequester, because it
  doesnt work by itself. That file only contains the instruments. it
  is important that it says SMPL. before the names of the sampledata for
  each tune. The name after the dot must be identical with the name of the
  MDAT.File. There are 3 types of TFMX. One is called TFMX-1.5 for which i
  only have the tunes from Rock'n Roll. The remaining ones are TFMX-PRO 
  and TFMX 7V. The '7V' stands for seven voices, for example the Titletune
  from Turrican II.

  " Suntronic 2 " DeliPlayer (Review)

  By Holger Benl & Andy Silva

  I have written that some Suntronic Soundtracks were written by Rob
  Hubbard and Martin Galway. This is however not true, all tunes were
  programmed by Felix Schmidt. This information have i gotten from a
  phonecall with Felix himself. He has also sent me all of his tunes and
  replay codes. Felix Schmidt have stopped working on the Amiga since
  1990. Now he has taken a small detour to Archimedes and finally landed
  on PC, and is trying his luck there. 

  Why another Suntronic Player ?
  During the making of the first player there occured an error.
  This was due to the different construction of some Suntronic Musicfiles.
  A noteplayer is under construction. With such a thing it would be
  possible to play all the tunes on a Toccata.

  At the moment over 40 Soundfiles is available in this format.

  1 B: FlowerPower and Delitracker

  After a happy chat with Christian, I succeeded in convincing him to
  create a special BBS for DeliTracker. There you will find all new tools,
  and soundfiles, which are connected with DeliTracker. I hope this BBS is
  already running :-)

  2. MusicDisk Review
  A: Cryptoburners Musicparty 1990

  A wonderful musicdisk by Cryptoburners (CRB). It was created already in
  December 1989, but i find that the soundtracks are very nicely composed.
  So far have only 4 titles out of 7 been used in some BBStros and on some
  demopacks. Noone probably listened through the whole musicdisk, but i
  did and of course all the tunes are still on the disk after that.

  All Soundtracks where made in the months between new year and autumn
  1989. The playtime of the whole disk is more than 30 minutes !

  2010 Survivel       von Blackstar & Trixal          KITARO 1986
  1989 Ei Kule        von TimeTraveller & Blackstar
  Flying High         von Rhesus Minus                KITARO 1986
  Isis Unveiled       von Watchman & Trixal           KITARO 1986
  One on Two          von Rhesus Minus                KITARO & VANGELIS
  Stunning Lightning  von Trixal
  Wings               von Blackstar            100%   KITARO 1986

  All the tunes have pretty good samples, partly based by Original
  soundtracks from Vangelis & Kitaro.


  2. B: More Sounds ??

  This part could be interesting for anyone with a CD-Rom, or anyone  
  planning on getting one. Some of you are probably longing for some new
  modules. For that purpose there is a couple of good CD's. I will
  introduce you to a few here, and try to write my thoughts about them.

 Aminet CD #4   A really good solution is found on this CD. All the
                mods are sorted by style and are reached through Amiga
                Guide. They are all played through Delitracker and
                therefor Christian Bucher included his trick box. The
                number of really good, and also new Mods on this Aminet CD
                is really high. The mainpart of the software is only
                useable on Amiga.   "Nummero UNO"

 Multimedia MusicBox

               A pure Musicdata CD, for IBM aswell as Amiga. It contains:
               over 500 MOD, MIDI and VOC files, Players for PC's, and a
               few WAV samples. About the modules it must be said that
               they cannot compete with todays standard. The newest Mods
               that i found, were from 1991.

               Another CD which can be used on both Amiga and PC.
               On this CD there is 1000 Mods which are really good, and
               cannot be found on other CD's, also on the CD there are 500
               MID files. 
               You who really want the newest soundtracks should get
               it/listen to it.   "SUPER"

 Euroscene 1
               This CD contains the most Mods. Over 2000 tunes. The oldest
               one is from 1991. Further there is also over 400MB of scene
               demos on it. Some mods are sorted by authors, others are
               sorted by certain events. For the one who wants to become a
               part of the modscene, this is the right way. For PC users
               that haven't installed OS/2, this CD is useless. All
               filenames are longer than 8 characters.

 Music Box 94
               Actually a CD for PC's but that doesn't matter. It contains
               over 800 mods made in the USA. The VOC files are of no use
               for amiga users, since they are meant for PC soundcards.

 Sounds Tereffic

               A double-CD. The first one only contains mods. Around 3500.
               The other one contains MID files, players and editors. One
               CD for Amiga and PC with software for both computers is

 SoundSide CD
               This one contains about 1500 mods and 500 MID files. All
               the data is prepared for a Mailbox-operation.
               A big Catalogfile facilitates this. The special thing about
               this CD is where it comes from: Iceland.
               Result, many more modules in surplus.

  More musicfiles is available on the 17-BIT CD 1 - 4. But only as
  executable demos or intros. This CD serie is only for Amiga. All files
  are packed with DMS ! 

  Should anyone of you find another CD, which contains modules, that
  person should extend this list. All the CD's are available from Amiga
  shops, and the price is between 19 DM and 59 DM.


  3. Correction
  The program to modify samples, Soundscope, which i told you about in
  the previous issue costs: 4312 Mark, and is made for MacOs V7.


  4. Samplitude Pro
  I will order samplitude now. We can see later how many that wishes to
  participate. For recording only Toccata and Maestro are used.


  This Document was translated by Spectral/Tulou (Jonas Nyren). And since
  neither German or English is my native language it is quite possible
  that there are some mis-spelled words or some grammatical errors and I
  apologize for those. However as a whole I think you understand what I
  have written, if not I must take some courses in English :-)
