I created a little intro about MIDI conversion with SWMconvert.exe here:

WitchMaster could register to CSDB (thx. Moderators), and his manuals can be found here now:

the same here, coding takes almost all the time (usually twice the amount planned :) but now I promised myself I'll dedicate some time for the actual composing...
The beautiful Splash-screen hires Logo is the work of Leon. We can possibly expect more from him for the later releases too :)

If I wasn't so busy coding, I might've given it a try.
Gotta love the splash screen, btw.

Oh, glad to hear you like it! I'm looking forward the upcoming tunes being made with SW1.2?
I'll come up with some as well soon...

I advise you to check out Witchmaster's new book which is based on my manual, but is much more verbose and possibly more human-centric.
If you'll like his work we'll include that for the upcoming releases.

Wait a moment guys, I'm uploading the files right now... :)

New features added since the 1.0 version:
NTSC machine support - detects machine-type and auto-sets graphics and frequency-table
1st frame’s waveform-register now can be set to any values (except 0 in SWM1) for all instrumets
More configuration options in menu (they are saved to the workfile):
-Selectable (predefined) colour-themes
-Flickering rasterbars can now be hidden
-Instrument-autotyping (unneeded repetitive instrument-selections optimized when tune saved)
-GT/DMC piano-keyboard layout, 2 row of notes (ASDF...), octave selection with ‘1..8‘ keys
-follow-playback mode can be set as default - and can be toggled in realtime too (see keys’ section)
Rastertime of the tunes during playback is measured and peak/max rastertime is calculated
Copy/Paste (even partial) now in Orderlist-sequences too, and Finding empty patterns (C= + E).
Fast-forward playback (4x the speed of normal) now possible (with ‘left-arrow’ key)
Built-in cheat sheet (instant help) for the most important keys (the last menupoint)
Values can be negated with ‘=’ key in instrument-tables and chordtables (e.g. $40 will be $C0)
Pressing Return/Enter on the instrument’s default chord-number brings the chord in focus
SID-Maker improvements: author-info moved to reused memory, faster relocation-address setting,
‘exe.prg’ export can switch subtunes and displays playtime and rastertime-use (current & peak)
some other fixes: table-cursorpositions remembered, edit/jam mode better distinguishable,
muted track’s filter-program is stopped, C=+Delete deletes in note-column if cursor is there,
extended relocation range ($0200...$ffff), normal SID output for single-speed tunes
Startup menu with selectable players: normal/light/medium/extra (selectable in SID-Maker too)

@Leticia: Some more tunes came thanks to Necropolo,Spider and Toggle. There would have been 2 more of my worktunes included but one of them couldn't be released at X'2012 due to delay in the program, the other is not ready yet. But they'll come sooner or later...
